These Road Toad Pahoehoe U•BASS® Strings are recommended for players in search of an upright tone with a great deal of flexibility and maneuverability. Available in 4-Strings and 5-String sets:

  • Fits all rubber-stringed Kala U•BASS® Instruments*

    Ubass string volume issue

    Bought my UBass second hand. No idea how old strings were. It was suffering from weak volume on E and A strings. Ash Reyes was super as always with his prompt educated advice. I had a local luthier from Seven Cs in St Pete Fl, put the recommended new pickup and strings on, along with removing a plastic pickup base plate and tweaking the truss rod a bit, and problem solved. Happy, happy. Thanks Ash.

    Lovely Sound

    I like the warm tone of these strings. I already have several basses with standard wound strings, and I wanted a new, unique sound. These strings gave me what I was looking for.
