    Default Aquila ukulele sugar strings: are there available a few haters because squeack noise?

    Hello guys,
    Mimmo of Aquilastrings here.
    After a lot of efords and failures I think to have found the solution to the squeak of the Sugar strings that affect some 50% of the uke players

    May I ask -please- a few of volunteers that are real haters of the Sugar string's squeack in order to test some samples?

    We have done the test on classical guitars and no problems at all.

    Unfortunately I have not so many samples.
    I want real haters dudes, those that thinks that it is impossible to play due to the squeack.
    pleaase mail me to: aquila@aquilacorde.com and tell me the complete address (no piobox please) plus a pone for the mail service (and which is your forum nick name...).

    I have available all high g versions of soprano, concert, tenor. No available strings for different kind of instruments ( 6, 8 string tenors, banjolele etc) and all the low G tuning.
    Maximumsample quantity: right for two kind of instruments

    The test is for the sample A and for the sample B (two different version of squerckless strings: it is interesting which will be the winner)
    Mille grazie
    Mimmo

    Can I just say, I think it is really awesome that you are asking for input on these new strings directly from the community.

    Let me second this. I love that you are continuing to tweak and work on different strings, and I love that you are asking for input directly from the community.

    Damn, missed the boat! I won't use the squeaky sugars so I hope the experiment is a success as I liked them otherwise!

    I am impressed. Took about 90 minutes (before I even was awake) for all those haters to surface. Not sure if that is a measure of success by itself!

    Good luck with the test Mimmo.

    I count myself as one of the people who stopped using the strings because of the squeaks. It drove me nuts, and never went away completely. Though they were much less noticeable after a month.

    I liked the sound very much otherwise.
