Item Description

The Aquila Sugar Ukulele strings are made using a blend with a recently discovered plastic material derived from sugar- cane.

With a transparent look, the sound of these strings is clearly brilliant, clean and prompt.

Unlike the Fluorocarbon strings, these strings have an excellent vibrato and a significant timbre variation when playing very close to the bridge and then up on the sound hole. In other words, they contain in their extremes the sweetness and sing ability of Nylon and the clearness and promptness typical of Fluorocarbon. Another important property is the characteristic sustain, which by scientific measurements is superior to any type of string currently available in the market. Another feature checked is the sound projection: our scientific tests have shown that it is superior to that of the Fluorocarbon strings.

Although the surface is extremely smooth, the grip on the fingers is remarkable. The material is very clear and transparent similar to a crystal-glass.

not for fingerpicking
August 30, 2018
I tried the SUGAR low-G tenor strings at the urging of Aquila when the Super Nylgut 107U where out of stock and on backorder. I play finger style on the tenor ukulele, and found the SUGAR strings to make an odd fingering squeak. Likely a better fit for those that strum. They feel quite different then any other strings I have played, but I was unable to conclude if that difference was good or not towards my playing style. It would take considerable use to know, and the squeaking issue was enough for me to move on. I do appreciate Aquila for bringing these strings to market, as they certainly a different type of playing experience. There will be players that will absolutely love and resonate with the SUGAR strings. The only way to know is to buy a set and try them and see if they fit your own style of playing.
  • Vibrato is exceptional.
