    thats what i was thinking. i got clear worth strings when i got my uke from musicguymic and when i changed it to the ej46's, i didn't really notice any big difference. but then again, my ear isn't trained that well so it could be just me.

    Choice of Worth over any other string is dependent on you and your uke.
    On the sopranos & concerts I play (Kings & KoAlohas) my personal preference has been the brn Worths. Light tension on one uke, mediums on the rest. Try a set. If you like them a soprano/concert pak can string couple concert scale length ukes. These flurocarbon strings seem to settle quicker, are relatively temperature/humidity stable and last longer than the Aquilas I've used in the past. Worths come in clear & browns plus various tensions. Also, low G and reentrant.

    yep, and you can string 2 ukes for the price of 1 pack!

    here is a comparison that some french dude did between the ko'olau strings and worth BE's on the same model ukulele.

    if i remember correctly from french classes in junior high... it says...

    "string comparison ko'olau and worth BE mounted on two identical ukuleles, the Pono PSO"

    the difference is worlds.

    wow the ko'olau resonated much better while the brown worth's were kinda dry to my ear. haha it sounded like the pono soprano just ate up the notes. between the brown and the clear worth strings there should also be a big difference rite?

    I've got some clear mediums on my soprano kala, and I love the sound and the feel of 'em. I'm actually planning on putting 'em on my other uke when I get around to ordering 'em...


    I meant to order some today, but I got on ebay and ended up with a resonator ukulele. UAS is rough.
