    Wink Aquila Sugar strings? I am testing a better version... what to do?

    Hi guys,
    I have a question:
    In order to reduce the problem of squeack (and to have the performance similar to the fluorcarbon strings) ther Sugar set is made, from the begginning, not with pure Sugar polymer but with a blend between Nylgut and Sugar.
    Using this blend the squeack is under better control while the sound is around the typical fluorcarbon performance.

    Well, recently I have done some further tests using pure Sugar polymer of the very recent generation (I call it 2.0, while for the Sugar uke set I employ 1.0 generation: the sound is exactly the same): the squeack of the 2.0 sugar seems to be less than those of the 1.0.

    But the performances are superb (I wonder: maybe too much?), far over the ufficial Sugar set so.. what to do??

    Well, guys, I would like to knows if there are there a few of volunteers available -that already well knows our Sugar set- that can test for me the pure Sugar strings.

    At the same time I would like to know if the squeack problem is similar to those of the standard Sugar set or more (normally after a week or so on it goes away or/and using a bit of hand lotion).

    You can reach me there:
    aquila@aquilacorde.com

    Please remember: your complete address plus a phone

    The sets available are only these ones: high G sets for soprano, concerto, tenor.
    No any low G version, no baritone, no 6 strings tenors.

    Thanks a lot!

    I really like the overall sound of the 1.0 version, but the squeaking really did drive me crazy at first!

    Ah ah, I am not Supermimmo, dude.
    yes, I spend a lot of energy on these things because i love music as well as research.
    But, at the end of the job, I am a lot tired, so I have a few of spare time for my uke (and you cannot immage which kind of strings I have installed on....).
    In the extruder room there are 40 to 50 celsius degree and noise.
    So good to have you, guys ,that always help me to test all these crazy things that come out from my head. Ja.
    For the sake of music....
