Truly premium strings for soprano, concert, and tenor ukes
Carlos Y. 02.01.2015
After having mixed experiences with Aquila nylgut strings (both "nylgut", "bio nylon", "new nylgut", and what have you), I have found the Risa Premium strings to be the holy grail of fluorocarbon ukulele strings.

While these strings would suit any ukulele from soprano to tenor, they work particularly well with Risa's own solid instruments, which produce a tension which might (and in my case, did) break other brands of fluorocarbon strings.

The tone, sustain, and sheer looks (they're dark brown) of the strings blew me away. Once you've given them a couple of days to settle down, these strings simply do not go out of tune.

Finally, don't be put off by the price. While they go for roughly twice the price of other good string sets, be aware that these strings are extra long, which you can then cut down to your preferred size. I measured enough string to cover at least two sets of tenor scaled ukuleles, so twice the price / twice the length = an amazing bargain.

I don't think I'll be buying any other strings for my ukes in the future. They're simply that good. If you're like me, believe me, your search for uke strings is finally over.

Enough for two sets.
WolfmanAndy 04.11.2021
As stated before there is ample string to cut into two and have two full sets. I find the tone a bit too "warm" resulting in reduced volume, but I like the fact that the 4th string is not wound. So I prefer these as a compromise. Sttring colour is dark brown and looks black.

Preiswerter Satz ohne Alternativen
Lou Red 04.05.2011
Nachdem ich zunächst von den unfassbane 18€ abgeschreckt war habe ich mich letztendlich doch dazu durchgerungen diesen Satz Saiten zu kaufen. Im gegensatz zu allen anderen Sets mit tiefer G-Saiten ist diese bei Risa nicht umwickelt, sonder nur etwas dicker als die drei Höheren. Allgemein sind die Saiten eher dünn und am Anfang klingen sie recht hart. Nach ausgiebigem Einspielen entwickels sie jedoch einen sehr angenehmen warmen Klang an dem ich nichts auszusetzen habe, und halten dann auch die Stimmung sehr gut.

Wichtig zu sagen ist, dass es sich hierbei eigentlich um 2 Sätze handelt. Die 4 enthaltenen Saiten sind so lang, dass ich meine Tenorukulele problemlos ein weiteres Mal damit bespannen kann. Somit rechtfertigt sich auch der hohe Preis.

Hauptkaufgrund war für mich die fehlende Umwicklung der G-Saite, nachdem ich 2 Sätze Aquila Neilguts nach kurzer Zeit kaputt gespielt habe. Risa sind hier bei Thomann die einzigen, die Fluor-Carbon Saiten ohne Umwicklung anbieten.

Fazit: Nach einiger Einspielzeit sehr schöner Klang, nahezu keine Verstimmung und eine sehr haltbare Ausführung.
