After hearing how they sounded on my concert ukulele, I added a set to my tenor of the same brand and it totally changed the quality of sound on this uke! It’s a spruce top and it’s loud, and now it’s loud with a more mellow sound, which I love…
I am a pro player. I have used Aquilas and find them to be good, loud strings. But for my new koa Island Ukulele, which was strung with Aquilas from the shop or luthier, I ran into a problem where the Uke returns so much energy that the A string actually rattled on the bridge, creating a fret-buzz-like tone (I've seen a negative review of Island Ukes where the player thought they had bad fret buzz, I can almost guarantee this is actually what they were experiencing- the Uke actually vibrates TOO much for the unforgiving nylgut strings- kind of a good problem to have if you ask me. One option would be to replace the bridge with wood or another slightly softer material, but I had success using a little piece of foam around the string below the bridge, problem solved, in a slightly ugly way). And frankly, I didn't feel the spanky nylgut tone was doing the best this Uke could do. Worth doesn't make a wound low G as far as I can find, but I LOVE worth brown strings. What I may end up doing long term is buying those and finding an excellent guitar string to use as a low G, I've used Augustines in the past with good results. Or cut the nut to fit the heavy low G fluorocarbon. We'll see about that.
Anyway, I tried these pro arte strings since I already use them for my nylon guitar, had never used clear nylon strings on a uke before. Holy cow, these things are thick, had to widen the C and A slots slightly to accommodate (I have proper nut slotting files). But the tone is like a big, warm, soft blanket. I really love it. I can get a velvety thumb sound, a very mellow first finger Tiny Tim strum sound, and my back of the fingernails strum is loud but not harsh. And It DOES NOT sound like a guitar, which I was concerned about. Worth brown strings also have a pleasing warm tone, but are so thin, I just don't know that they'll deliver the kinetic energy these strings do. I feel like I'm barely working and filling up a lot of sonic space. There are dead spots on the fretboard, as with any fretted instrument, but in playing chords the fundamentals are so strong the dead spots are indistinguishable.
I notice another review of these strings that notes these are intended for ADF#B tuning, but I didn't notice that in any fine print, and the packaging clearly states GCEA strings (it's called a low g set after all). I think ALL Ukes probably perform better when tuned up to D6 tuning, but it's harder on your fingers for every day playing, and no client has ever walked up to me and said "golly, if only you tuned up to D, your tone would have been that much brighter, and I'd have given you a bigger tip."
At any rate, I'm loving the tone and playability so far. I do notice they're taking FOREVER to settle into tune for more than than 10 minutes or so, not even close overnight after 5 days and two gigs. I suppose they act the same on my guitar, but it is taking a while, nothing like nylgut, those things stay in tune after a day or 2. Not that I don't tune every time I pick up my instrument, because I do, but these aren't even close. Yet.
If my opinion changes, I will alter my review, but this this point, I am really enjoying the robust feel and the velvet fog tone these strings project (sorry Mel). BTW, one pack I ordered had a PLAIN low G in it, an absolute packaging mistake, glad I bought 2 packs. I don't think I've ever had an error from daddario before, but reminded me to ALWAYS inspect new strings before cutting old ones off.
I did have to file my 4th string nut slot, but was quick and easy with a cheap set of nut files I got. Not difficult at all, took less than a minute. The 1st string needed an extra couple wraps at the bridge.
The G3 string was kinda tough to tie, being so thick. It is certainly the string that needs to stretch the most. It is wonderful and feels so meaty on the thumb, it's so much better to play for a guitar player.
They sound amazing, I love it. That G3 hits a perfect harmonic resonance that really projects. They are crisp and clean sounding. They feel great, and strong. The uke is much nicer to fingerpick on now.
Still on day one, but I can tell these strings are just a huge upgrade to my uke and I'm going to love them.

I have had mine on for about three weeks and I play every day, and I am still having to tension them up each time I play but I am sure they will settle, but be mindful that when you are stringing the Ukulele don't leave too much slack on the strings, so that the winding peg is not overloaded, since you will be tensioning them for quite some time.
I suppose that makes them resonate better, but for me it allows a thinner gauge which I prefer and a 'scratchier' sound for my blues recordings. I usually prefer fluorocarbon strings for general use, and these for blues/rockabilly sound. The titaniums are noticeably thinner and louder than Nylgut and Fluorocarbons and have a texture to them that really gives a more metallic edge to the sound. I have D'Addario's fitted to my KoAloha, Tanglewood, and Luna models and prefer these to anything else I have tried.
I recommend as they come packed with a 'freshness' bag, colour coded strings, plenty of length, and the gauges written on the pack so you can easily replace. Not a single string has broken in the last 3 months of heavy daily use.
