Aquila Sugar Clear Tenor GCEA High G Ukulele Strings 154U
We had the pleasure of trying these Aquila strings at the development stage and loved them to bits. Technically not a fluorocarbon but definitely a worthy contender to your favourite fluorocarbon strings like the Martins, Savarez and Worths of this world.
Aquila sugar ukulele strings are made using a blend with a recently discovered plastic material derived from sugarcane. With a transparent look, the sound of these strings is clearly brilliant, clean and prompt.
Unlike the fluorocarbon strings, these sugar strings have an excellent vibrato and a significant timbre variation when playing very close to the bridge and then up on the sound hole. In other words, they contain in their extremes the sweetness and sing ability of nylon and the clearness and promptness typical of fluorocarbon.
Another important property is the characteristic sustain, which by scientific measurements is superior to any type of string currently available in the market. Our own testing on the sound projection has shown that these tenor ukulele strings are superior to that of the fluorocarbon counterpart.
Although the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable. The material is very clear and transparent similar to a crystal-glass.
