View Full Version : Aquila Carbonblack strings break

I have had aproblem with the Aquila Carbonblack strings breaking on my Collings tenor. I have had two that have broken. One broke in the case. These strings were not on the uke for very long. They have been the first and fourth strings.

I have checked and canít find any sharp spots on the uke. Has anyone else heard of or had this issue? I like the strings, but if I canít figure this out I will have to go back to Worth Browns. Any insights are appreciated.

You’ll find much discussion on this String type and early breakage on this thread.
Thought this problem was fixed. Maybe you have an older version.

Thanks- I have been sent old stock by the vendor. I ordered these about a month ago. I dug out the wrapper and it's
dated 3/2017. I will be sending an email this afternoon.
