Default Alternative strings for Cordoba Mini - A tuning?

I got a Mini with cutaway and electronics, all solid cedar/maple.
I love it. It can use a little setup work that I hopefully can do on the next string change.
I love the A-A tuning and the uke like sound.
Are there any alternative string brands or models where I can tie the old ball ends to keep them securely under the Mini's bridge pins?

Try Aquila Reds for A tuning on a guitalele (they also have reds for E tuning so be careful what you buy)

Thanks. I guess I'll give them a try.

I am using the Ernie Ball Earthwood ball end nylon strings. I have them on a mini m. I have them at F#. I like looser tension. I found the stock A to A strings tighter than I like. I will try tuning it up later this week and get back to you. They are nice sounding strings and very convenient with the ball ends in place.
