    They sound really good! When will they be available to purchase? I'd like to try some on my tenors. I went to the Aquila site but I could not seem to get them ordered.

    It's great to see somebody always trying new materials though. I loved the reds, with the copper infused powder, but just had no luck with them not breaking on my ukes.

    Thanks for posting these videos. It really helps to hear them in action.

    We have just done 10,000 sets each ukulele type. At present most of our collaborators are working very fast to package them and send out to USA, in first instance. I have found the final formula and I must say that I am very impressed about what I have heard. I tell this thing without any business goal but just because I am a player (amatour) and I love music I have done a few of these carbonblack even for cuatro, charango, viola caipira, banjo, cavaqhino etc etc just to see what happen on these instruments. Yesterday I have done some Trebles for the classical guitar: amazing!
    well, I am leaving Italy to China (due to my job) so starting from monday and for 1 week I will be not able to answer you there, guys.

    Japan....Europe....I think more or less 1 month; unless one do not order in our own on line store. It is not possible to do faster: there are many and many passages to follow in the distribution. There are the very big distributors (we must wait their orders, we cannot oblige them to buy if they do not wat: they have their own planes); then they distribuite the strings to the stores: generally speacking, this process is slow and it is not possible make them faster by us
