Ukulele strings
The scale lengths and tunings (from the 4th string up) of the main types of ukulele are:
Piccolo 10 1/4in (26cm) tuned G C E A (C tuning) one octave higher than Soprano
Soprano 13in (33cm) tuned G C E A (normal C tuning) or A D F# B (D tuning)
Concert 15in (38cm) tuned G C E A (normal C tuning)
Tenor 17in (43cm) tuned G C E A (normal C tuning) or D G B E (G tuning)
Baritone 19in (48cm) tuned D G B E (G tuning like the top 4 strings of guitar)
The ukulele usually uses re-entrant tuning where the 4th string is tuned higher than the 3rd however some players prefer tuning the 4th an octave lower.
Bass Ukuleles typiclly have the same scale length as Baritone Ukes and are tuned E A D G

Aquila Super Nylgut Ukulele StringsAquila Super Nylgut Ukulele Strings
Super Nylgut is the latest addition to the Aquila range. Offering the same richness of tone as the standard sets, these strings feature a smooth, polished surface. The new formulation remains pliable but less stretchy than the standard Nylgut strings, making for faster and more stable tuning, plus better intonation. Super Nylgut is stronger than the original material too, resulting in reduced vulnerability to damage from fret wear, and sharp edges on nuts and nails. The Low G sets feature an Aquila Red Series plain G, in keeping with the smooth feel and improved intonation offered by the rest of the set.

Aquila Red Series Ukulele StringsAquila Red Series Ukulele Strings
Aquila Red Series strings have been specially engineered to act as replacements for wound strings. Made from Aquila's Nylgut, the addition of copper to the compound increases the string's density, resulting in more tension than other strings of the same gauge. These strings also address the excessive volume and power of wound strings over the plain nylon ones in any given set. Added benefits include extended life over the wound counterparts, reduced finger noise, and a more homogeneous tone and feel with the Nylgut sets. If you like a low G on your Uke these will help to even out volume and tone and give a balanced feel across the set.

Aquila Soprano Ukulele StringsAquila Soprano Ukulele Strings
Gut strings have long been admired by classical guitarists for their excellent attack and brilliant timbre. The drawbacks of gut, high cost, limited life, instability with varying humidity, quality control, led to its replacement by nylon. Aquila Nylgut strings are made from a synthetic gut with the same acoustic properties as organic gut but without the drawbacks. These sets are for Soprano Uke.

Aquila Thundergut Bass Ukulele StringsAquila Thundergut Bass Ukulele Strings
Aquila's Thundergut strings are made from a specially developed plastic compound which has good elasticity despite being very dense. The result is a string which offers fast and stable intonation with good tone and output power, plus a higher tension which leads to faster response during play. A step up from polyurethane and silicone strings, which can feel rubbery and lack treble, they require no pre stretching and feel smooth under the fingers. This set has been put together especially for the Kala UBass, and it will also suit any Bass Ukulele of Ashbory type instrument, tuned EADG.
