    Default different strings???

    i'm not exactly a beginner after playing for 3 months but are there any other strings that are made of different material instead of the usual nylon? just wondering since i'm planning to save up for a Kala KA-TEM tenor.

    Yep they are some nice ones...I have a set of those, a set of martin flurocarbon and been trying to find something good for my 1916-1918 Rolando banjolele...I think I got some staggs on it but dont really like them...not sure what to put on it to make it sound good.

    Worths are fluorocarbons and some of us prefer them to the Aquila nylguts.

    I been hearing things about Worths browns I think...some say they are too thick and some say they are great...will have to give them a try.

    Actually, Worths are thinner than Aquilas, at least the ones I've tried. The Aquilas felt clunky under my fingers. I tried the Worth clears but liked the browns better.

    But there is no definitive consensus. Try a variety and see how you like them. Some people find a certain brand/type of string works better on one uke than another.
