Nope. T2s are thicker.

The nylon strings tend to be thicker than other strings I've tried. Savarez are blends I believe

After using T2s for 3years I recently switched to Savarez. So far I really like them. I imagine it is quite a personal thing.

ill check em out. ive very happy with aquila nylguts on my soprano
and red series on my concert. i am however looking for the perfect
baritone strings and im thinking thicker gauge may not be the best
thing for baritone.

Why would you like the thickest string possible..if you have a light build uke, you might damage the neck or so and it is less comfort to play...unless you are thinking
of warming up the tone..also too thick and the C string may start to sound thuddy on a light build uke...good luck.. Salvarez is a low tension string medium guage string...I like them
on light built ukes.. :)

I have tried Aquila, Fremont, k Middleton, worth and martins. After reading some reviews that savarez has a thicker gauge, it is now my favorite string. But I want to experiment with a little bit more thicker. I have savarez on my soprano, concert and tenor.

Watching this page it seems like Savarez strings are thinner and lower tension than J71, T2, and Ko'olau strings.

Quite right, but on my uke is has volume, sweet , has clarity and substain... way above martins, a bit thinner too
