I've not been satisfied with sound from my Collings UT1. Didn't care for the Nylguts that came with it. Tried the Aquila Red Series with a noticeable improvement, but still not the perfect strings.

On a whim I replaced the g string with an Oasis wound guitar string 0.030" diameter, tuned to low g. Wow. Hard to believe, but it is like a new instrument. One string can make a big difference.

Listen to the difference:

Very nice comparison. I must admit that I am partial to low G, but I love the depth with the Oasis wound "G".
