They seem warmer than Aquilas nylgut. I have a demo of a BI mango concert up with them being used.

A green, or Nitro Lime, set is settling on my (pink, plastic soprano) Ukulelia (http://www.kiwayaukuleles.com/noveltyukuleles.html) right now. They look great---like a stem for the flower on the uke's headstock---and are sounding sweet.

Difficult to compare them to other strings, since I've only tried a couple string sets on Ukulelia so far. The Auroras definitely sound better than the original clear nylon strings---more brightness and clarity. The Auroras have less tension and volume than the South Coast Medium set they replaced, which is a good thing on Ukulelia.

If either Lani or Duke could use a little color, you should try these out.
