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. These round wound strings provide a warm booming tone that the U•BASS® is known for. The strings are specifically constructed for the Kala U•BASS® to provide the player with extreme playability and accurate intonation. They feature lower tension compared to traditionally built bass strings, which gives them a great feel and makes them easy on the fingers:

  • Fits all Round Wound set-up Kala U•BASS® Instruments*
  • 4-String Set includes: EADG
  • 5-String set includes: BEADG
  • Louder acoustic option than the original polyurethane strings
  • Designed for the traditional bass tuning (EADG)
  • Suitable for 20“ - 21" Scale
  • Original string set on the UBASS-WNDR-FS, UBASS-JYMN-FS, UBASS-JYMN-BK-FS, and UBASS-EBY-FSRW


*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.

Kala Metal Strings Are Great

I love these. They make my UBass sound bright and electric. No a typical "UBass" sound, but that's what makes it awesome. Thanks!

Better than the original strings.

I never liked the rubber strings that came on it because they never stay in tune. These feel and sound better, and they stay in tune better.
