    Thanks for seeking this out - please post if you get info about expected availability - as these two vendors are my preferred at this time.

    Aquila told me that they have only last week sent strings out to distributors. Distributors in the UK at least expect these to be with dealers next week. They've literally only just completed the first production run.

    I never really know how to judge tension as I don't tend to feel differences. The gauge on these is more like standard Aquila, ie fatter than Martin

    Hi guy
    some answers:
    Frigilana: yes, the can be bent very easily like Aldrine shows in the video (we,, the tension is not so high as on Fluorcarbon strings except the Martin F.)
    Gauges: yeah, it is hard to make all people happy. Some whant thin gauges, some hate thin gauges and viceversa. The gauges of these sets are same of those of our standard nylgut sets.

    The sound of these Sugar is crazy. Why I say crazy? Because the are at the same time briliant (far over the fuorocarbon: we have done some scientific misurations so it is not just an opinion good for marketing); at the same time they are mellow: depend how you play them.
    The total output is a bit more than fluorocarbon (again: scientific misurations).

    There is a little problem: the total full performances came out a few hours after the installation: to make this process faster I suggest to stretch them a few times.
    Ciao

    Ps: I am back home from a trip: we are doing our best to distribuite these Sugar in a fatserv way

    Hey Baz- Maybe you can post just the clip of the sound file and these strings along with the sound file of when you reviewed this soprano initially with other strings. It would be great to hear the two alongside one another.

    (BTW- does it bother anyone else that the start of the reviews always begin with an electric guitar chord? It is jarring before hearing the mellifluous sound of the ukuleles.)
