    Nyltechs from Daddario are mellower than Nylguts. Maybe if you use a D tuning on your soprano uke (like me) these strings could show you their bright side.

    I need to know the tension mainly to protect my nails. I use lots of flamenco strums. I can use Proartes and Ko'olau Golds without breaking my nails. Are there more options?

    That is totally true. Aquilas have more tension than T2 and they feel floppier on the fingers. Why?

    Savarez classical guitar strings

    Hi,

    I really like nylon strings. Did you used Savarez 520R classical strings on your ukulele? The gauges are a bit thinner than pro artes J71 (.0278-.0323-.0402). How is its sound and feel?
