Strings

I string my lutes with Aquila New Nylgut (NNG) strings, except for Savarez KF (designed as harp strings) for the basses on my 5th and 6th courses.  This stringing setup was suggested to me by luthier and lutenist, Martin Shepherd (who can also supply the strings for you).  I find it works very well for me, and gives me a balanced sound across all the courses on my lutes.  

Lute stringing is a complex issue, and it's worth experimenting to find what works best for your lute, your playing style and the sound you want to make.
