    How can you tell the difference between new nylgut and super nylgut strings? Not sure what came on my Kala solid mahogany tenor. Kala says they're supers, but the shop set it up before I purchased it, and they only sell new nylguts and LAVAs, no super nylguts. Thanks!

    I've played with Regular and Super on several Ukes and the tonal differences were always the same.

    Regular = Lower bass tone
    Super = Brighter clearer tone, not as bass like regular

    IMHO, the visual appearance and texture are also different.

    The "New Nylgut" strings have a stark white color, a smooth surface but not so shiny per se.

    The "SuperNylgut" strings have a light-grey color and a bit of a sheen and slightly slippery surface texture.

    Thanks! I believe I've got the supers. I like them, but they're harder to find locally than the new nylguts. I can get the Lavas though. Will probably try them next.
