    Kala Gallastrings Flatwound set (and nut) for Kala Scout, including an irregularity.

    I love the strings on my Ubass Scout, love the feel, love the sound. They need to stretch a LOT so don't whack on a set just before a performance Now I don't know if my scale length is an odd one or what compared to other Kala models, but the Gallastrings low E string was not long enough to make it from the bridge to the nut without spilling some of the taper wind onto the first fret. I used a razor blade to expose the bare string beyond the nut and taped the frayed portion to secure it. I would have expected custom designed string to fit the Scout more precisely. Not a big deal in any case, I love them overall. Oh and definitely shell out for the Kala Custom flatwound nut, much better than filing down the original one, plus you can switch it back later if you want to.

    Gallistring Flatwounds are the best

    The first I played the Ubass I was blown away by the sound. It was full and rich with a ton of punch. But I wanted the string to provide a more realistic tension under my finger tips. I upgraded to these flatwound by Gallistrings and love them. In addition to a great sound, these strings added a bit of the signature growl with a super slick feel. 100% worth the investment!!!

    Two Kala Flatwound U-Bass 4-string sets by Gallistrings

    Excellent flatwound U-Bass strings. Really sound good on both my Graziano ukuleles, the doubleneck bass / baritone and the tenor size Hoffner Beatle style U-Bass.
