What would be the main difference between GHS strings and Aquilla:nana:

In my experience, the GHS ones are pretty dead sounding without being in any way mellow, and the Aquilas are much brighter and sparklier sounding, and feel better under my fingers.

I am liking the D'addarios on my cedar top mellows some of the pop. But for my mahogony laminate I keep rocking the aquila's to brighten the sound.

So I suppose the sting choice boils down to the sound your looking for and the qualitys of the instrument your working with.

good luck

I can't wait to get my D'Addario strings from my Ukulele teacher on Nov. 19th. I know that I will be satisfied with high tension strings!

GHS strings - nylon and inexpensive, does not have sustain
Aquila (http://www.aquilausa.com/uke_strings.html) - Nylgut, synthetic strings, longer sustain and cost a tad more than GHS
