I love aquilas, They make my uke sound awesome.
Worth, Martin strings are Great also.
It depends on what type of uke you have.

They're all going to be plastic-y because they're usually nylon. ;)

If you have a cheap uke, Aquilas will make it sound better almost instantly. This is almost absolutely true. After that, it's all about personal preference.

For better ukes, it takes a lot more experimentation to find the right sound. Aquilas made my $30 Harmony soprano sound like a completely different instrument (in a good way!), but I didn't like the same set on my Kamaka.

I bought some Gold Ko'olau Tenor strings for my Tenor Uke! Sounds good...but I heard Aquillas sounds good, so I'm gonna make that my next strings!
