    Is it possible that they are not available yet in that size?

    I ordered 4 sets from the the second link given in this thread on 12/6. They arrived from Italy to New Mexico on 12/18. Pretty good delivery time!
    I ordered soprano high g and low G and the same for my concert ukes.
    I have not had time to try them yet. In the meantime I sold one of the concerts that I intended to try them on. I play mostly soprano. Don’t give up, maybe try again? I won’t be able to report on sound, etc until after the holiday but I will report back. If I decide not to use the concert strings I will post on the marketplace.

    Perhaps. But you’d think they’d note, “Coming soon”.
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Good day,

    It's been a couple of weeks now, so I'm curious if there are any updates on the availability of these strings? I wasn't able to find them today, but I might have missed somewhere.

    Sharpshin: Have you had a chance to play yours yet?

    I'm very curious about these. I was telling a friend about them and the comment in response was that a bioplastic made from sugar was about the most 'me' thing they'd ever heard of. He he he. :P

    I ordered two sets from Italy and am going to a set on my 60s Kamaka soprano. It currently has nylguts installed. We shall see how they sound

    Hi 1890,
    In answer to your question, unfortunately I have not yet had a change to try them. Swamped with work, so barely have time to play, much less play with string changes. May be a while, due to work. I got high class problems! smile.

    Hello Guys,
    I am so sorry...the US distribution of the Sugar ukulele is so slow.
    I will have some meetings at the NAMM show in Anaheim and I will pick up many samples (bulk and packaged) and two ukuleles of the exactly the same model and even the performance: one will have installed one of the best fluorcarbon set (I do not tell of course which is the brand) and another with our Sugar strings.
    Facts are better and louder than words.
    Here in Eu they are already available in some places (on line store are better), expecially in UK.
    Unfortunately I have no better ways to make things faster.
    so be patient still bit.
