Hey lords and ladies,
I know theres alot of threads regarding strings already, I just thought i'd see people's opinion on the diff between T2's and the J71's. I have absolutely no idea, never used D'addario strings, only used Aquilla's in fact!

I like strings to not sound dull, have a warmness to it, yet not be too soft either. Hope that helps :)

I've only used J71s, I have them on my Mainland Tenor and they sound great. IMHO Aquillas have a brighter harsher sound than the J71s, which to me sound a lot mellower and smoother to the touch. I'm not saying I dislike Aquillas as I use them on my concert.

Can't really comment on the J71's. But i use the T2's and they sound pretty darn good.

Allen is spending this week taking the strings on/off, working on the action slowly to get it as low as possible while maintaining perfect playability and intonation... This uke is going to be a dream and a half :)
