Hello, I bought a new ukulele and got it yesterday. Now I wonder, are there really Supernylgut Aquila strings on it as the sticker says?:confused:
When compared to the other nylgut strings I have on other ukes, they seem softer and more yellowish in colour too.
Does anybody please have the thickness of Supernylguts for tenor?
(There are small letters says: Mod. 45, on the sticker)

Best regards

Can you tell us the brand of ukulele? That might be a good indicator.

It is the Portugal made APC TS: https://www.amazon.de/APC-Instruments-TT-Ukulele/dp/B00KIIXSIK/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

Am I too suspicious?
I bought an ukulele from China that claimed to had Aquilas on it but most certainly didnīt. But his is not an ukulele from China...:confused:

Just so happens I keep a list of tenor string gauges.

Aquila Lava 114U Measured Actual 0.0255 0.0330 0.0390 0.0280
Aquila Supernylgut 106U Measured Actual 0.0255 0.0330 0.0400 0.0290

Aquila Supernylgut 106U Measured Actual 0.0255 0.0330 0.0400 0.0290

Thank you so much. Very strange, as I measure I find them to be: 0,60 0,90 0,80 0,60 [mm] equals 0.024 0.0354 0.0315 0.024 [inch]

Could it please be any reasonable explanation to that?

I take the guess those are Aquila Concert ukulele strings. :-/ :confused:

I think that the reasonable explanation is that they are not Supernylgut. That doen't mean they will sound bad.

This sticker was attached to one of the strings.
