Has anyone tried genuine gut strings? I know you can buy some for a ridiculous price, but are they worth it, and how do they sound?

interested to hear responses on this.... and how do they sound/feel compared to Aquila (which is as close as I will ever get)

Aquila sells gut strings, but I don't know where one would get them. :old:

I've enjoyed Clifford Essex gut strings on a few of my ukes. I do find they're a bit quiet compared to fluorocarbons or aquillas. They also feel quite stuff against my fingers.
