These strings really are fabulous. By far the best ukelele strings I've tried so far. The red colour looked great on gretsch uke and they even seem to have more volume than regular nylon strings. They break in a bit quicker than the aquila nylgut's. The feel of them is different too, I would describe it as similar to coated guitar strings and I really like the tactile quality they have. There is a bit more string noise but it doesn't really bother me. I'm not sure how long they'll keep their sound but I'll update my review if there is any problems. They also do a low g set which I'm gonna try on my soprano uke when I get the chance.
