    I don't know about "best" but they are my current favorite on my uke. I use the Savarez Alliance red series right now with a Savarez Cantiga wound low g string.

    Another "deja vu all over again"! Try doing a search for "Savarez". This one has been beaten to death in many a thread.

    Yes, I use the top four strings from a Savarez red card set with the nylon on nylon wound 1, 2, 3 and the silver plated copper wound 4th on my Compass Rose tenor. Great strings, beautiful string to string voicing.

    I use Savarez Alliance Standard Tension classical guitar strings (541R, 542R, 543R) for the A, E, and C strings on my tenor ukes. I use a D'Addario Pro-Arte wound string for the G. I've always been very happy with them.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    "Best" is subjective, but they are very nice strings. I use them, as many others do here as well.

    Nice strings. Use them on my baritones DGBE linear tuning. Using the light classical treble set for GBE and a wound D. All my other sizes have Livingwaters flourocarbons. Never have been crazy about the squeak on wound but this isn't too bad. Nice balanced sound. More volume than fluorocarbon.

    Savarez are my 2nd favorite strings. Beautiful sound but the necessity of a wound fourth puts them in second place to Living Waters low G for my Collings tenor.

    Rick, could you give the product numbers for these? Thanks!
