    Hi All, Mimmo...PLEASE do not stop production of the original sugars... I luv em... i do not find the squeak an issue.. Love the volume, girth, punch and projection. They are a solid all round performance string (my opinion of course). They have become my string of choice on all my ukes. Please forewarn if the old strings are going out of production so i can invest in a number of sets before hand!!!

    Mimmo,

    I'm not a fan of the squeak, but I'm a fan of the string. The Elise Ecklund Flight Travel Soprano Ukulele ships with Aquila Sugars and sounds amazing. The others ship with your Super Nylgut, and while that is an perfectly wonderful string, it brings out other characteristics on those ukuleles. I wish they all shipped with the Sugars.

    I'm also a fan of the feel and look of fluorocarbons, so I'm so glad that the Sugars are available. Which reminds me...I need to go order some packs of Sugars for concert instruments! Off to Strings By Mail.

    I'm also a big fan of the current sugars.
    I have an early Gibson tenor with spruce top and mahogany back and sides that sounded very good with flurocarbons.
    But I always wanted a little more "volume, girth, punch and projection" as Banjo Byham said - especially girth: strings always felt thin on the Gibson. Apart from going to nylon strings, or ridiculously thick fluros, I had to settle.
    Until Sugars!! They brought my Gibby to life. (the squeak isn't noticeable after a while)
    Mimmo, eliminating the squeak would be nice, but please don't change the other wonderful properties of the Sugars.

    This may tempt me to try Aquila strings again. Sugars sounded good, but the squeak was a deal breaker. Thanks to Mimmo for continuing to innovate and support the ukulele community.

    Thanks for the update, mimmo! I actually thought the strings were in the mail already, but it's good to know I don't need to expect them just yet.

    Hey Mimmo, sory this is off topic, do you still make Reds?

    I'm looking forward to buying some!

    I don't like correcting spelling and your English is infinitely better than my Italian, but for the sake of making the word permanent on a label, it should be spelled "Squeakless".
