    I can't say I like or dislike the D'Addarios. My Tammy hates them on her tenor, the C sounds muddy and dead. They're coming off soon, and being replaced with a set of baritone tuned GHS strings like Craig Chee uses.

    Thank you, great resource for those of us that like a lighter tension or heavier tension set.

    Would Kamaka Strings be the same as the black nylon D'Addario?

    I know this is an old thread, but thank you for posting this.

    I've been trying to find out Aquila gauges for a while, and it's nice to have all the brands in a spreadsheet.
    Ukuleles:
    1960's Martin Style-0
    LoPrinzi Concert (Redwood & Mahogany)
    Kala Elite 1MHG-S
    Ohana SK-25S
    Kala Elite 1KOA-T << Letting this one go soon. PM if interested.

    Default D'addario Carbon, Fremont Black, Martin & Seaguar Blue/Premier Comparison Jan 2019

    ^^ Ditto

    I was curious about all the "fishing line as string" discussions & looked through most of them. I just jotted down a bunch of personal notes which morphed into a comparison of fluorocarbon strings (D'Addario Carbons, Fremont Black/Hard & Martin) & Seaguar Blue & Seaguar Premium. These notes may be subject to editing over time.
    The specs I saw on the Seaguar site were a bit different than some posted on other threads.

    Here are my notes in case anyone's interested.

    My interest was honed in on fluorocarbon strings in the interest of a brighter sound for the non-solid ukes I've gathered: ABS plastic (Kala Waterman), composite polycarbonate (Outdoor Ukulele), laminate/ABS (Magic Fluke Flea), all laminate (Kala Kiwi). Owners of the Flight travel series TUS35 TUS50 may be interested in this too.
    I didn't focus on tension specs, just diameter (see comment #21 by John Moody on this thread).

    EDIT TO ADD: What I'm also interested in is getting strings that sound/play decently on a soprano & sopranissimo. Advice on that would be appreciated if anyone has played around w/ fishing line & mini ukes.
