Kala Metal Round Wound U-BASS Strings

The Kala Metal Round Wound strings continue to be a favorite among U-BASS players that like the familiar feel of metal strings. Available in 4 and 5-string sets, this unique set is constructed of a nylon core with silver-plated windings.

Warm Booming Tone

These round wound strings provide a warm booming tone that the U-BASS is known for.

Extreme Playability and Accurate Intonation

The strings are specifically constructed for the Kala U-BASS to provide the player with extreme playability and accurate intonation.

Lower Tension

They feature lower tension compared to traditionally built bass strings, which gives them a great feel and makes them easy on the fingers.

*Please note for use on polyurethane string U-BASS setups, the instrument will need a new, compatible nut to accommodate these strings. Kala Metal Round Wound U-Bass Strings have a lower gauge that is too thin for the nut slots on a U-BASS pre-fit for Polyurethane strings. This can cause buzzing on open string notes. It's recommended that a nut designed for the round wound strings is used. You can purchase one here: U-BASS TUSQ Nut - 4 String (RW). / U-BASS TUSQ Nut - 5 String (RW). Please note that a nut swap should always be performed by an experienced instrument technician for best results. Due to the change to a higher tension as well, a truss rod adjustment is also recommended.

**Not for use on California Solid Body U-BASS

*** Modifications performed by the user will void the manufacturer warranty. Please also note that Kala is not responsible for damages to instruments caused by new string installments.
