yo JP, i just put ko'olau golds on my fluke. i like the sound so far. but being that is my first ukulele and first change of strings, i really have nothing to compare it to. i do like the feel of the new strings compared to the stock ones though.

let me know how them d'addarios go.

cheers!

You've got a TENOR Fluke, right? Standard 'C' tuning? (Not LowG?) I'll assume my guesses are right, so . . .

I like the Aquila strings myself (used them for a couple years), but lately I've been playing on the Worth strings and to me they sound as good if not better, but what I noticed was the lack of finger noise moving to the smoother finished Worth strings.

I have not personally tried the J65's, or any from that maker, so I can't give you an opinion on them. Were it me, I would try the Worth CT (clear tenor, medium tension) for now. They will be much more responsive on your Fluke than the stockers (Hilo's I think? -- whatever they are, they feel like noodles to me). If you determine later than you like an even harder feel and more volume the CH (clear tenor, harder) also, but I think the CT's on your Fluke will be plenty loud.


Have fun!

I forgot to mention, Worth packs their strings TWO sets to a pack. This is probably why they seem like so much more cashola
