Based on 14 reviews

The newest revolutionary U•BASS® string design from Aquila, the Aquila® Thunderbrown offers players a brand new playing experience and tone, distinct from other pure elastomer strings:

  • The strings ensure a perfect glide of the fingers of the left hand
  • The diameter is reduced to levels comparable to normal coated acoustic bass strings
  • They are made for the first time starting from bio-elastomers of vegetable origin and not from petroleum derivatives
  • The metal added in micronized form is minimal in the first string and maximum in the fourth: this translates into a perfect acoustic and timbral homogeneity of the frame
  • They do not show any 'sausaging effect' over time (strings pulled hard with the hands reduce their diameter in a stable form)
  • The acoustic power is increased, adding to the feasibility of play on a U•BASS® without amplification
  • String tension has been increased compared to that of Aquila® Thundergut, Thunderblack and Thundered.

intermediate ubass player....

Best upright/double-bass-ish sounding strings so far!

My perceptions -- I run a journeyman and had the original white strings (loved the color). Have also used an original ubass (without a rear kick plate) with Road Toad Pahoehoe U•BASS® Strings

To me these seem thinner, and higher tension giving clearer distinction between notes. Love em!

They still don't hurt my fingers like a normal double-bass with metal strings would (mad respect to those chaps), and I'm not searching for an electric bass sound (round/flat/pyramid metal strings)...

Favorite U Bass strings by a mile

The higher tension and overall feel are miles ahead of the stock strings. I had rounds on my U Bass for a little bit. Nothing wrong with them, but I prefer the acoustic tone of these by quite a bit. Slides are beautifully quiet. With all that said, there is more finger sound from my plucking hand when plugged in. Getting quieter with technique changes, but did seem worth mentioning.

Perfect for Ashbory short scale bass

I recently purchased a 1990s Ashbory bass, the first designed short scale bass, but has huge antique silicon strings and can be a challenge to play. I did some research and decided to try these Thunderbrowns, and what a huge improvement in sound quality, playability and intonation. They are a bit expensive so I’ll have to see about their durability, but so far it’s a well earned 5-stars. I might try the Thunderblack and Nygut at some point, but it’s hard to imagine they will surpass these.
