Awesome addition to the range

Have put these on my solid mahogany ubass and it has turned it into a complete delight to play.

I have also put them on a magic fluke timber bass that usually comes with roundwounds and they have turned it into a tone monster and the intonation is spot on and better than the original strings. Almost every sound from upright to p-bass is available just by changing right hand technique.

So pleased.

Steel Flats beat the hell out of rubber strings on UBass

Love these strings. Much better than the rubber strings. Nice fat gauge. Feel great. Sound great (nice acoustic sound on HB uke). Treat yourself.

Flatwounds on my Kala U-bass

As much as I liked the original "rubber" strings that come with the U-bass.... the addition of the Flatwounds have made the U-bass even better. With the flatwounds you can get a much more percussive sound when you want but can also be played softly for a warm softer sound. I run my U-bass through a Fender Rumble 40 and it sounds wonderful. I can get a real sounding electric bass sound to the woody sound of a dog-house. Thanks for a great product.

Nice upgrade

I play bass (very casually--family jams etc) and always use flats on my full size bass. Bought Ubass a few years ago for easier portability but didn't 'click' with it until I upgraded to the flats. Sounds great and love the increased tension on the E string. A lot less fingering noise, too, especially for players with my skill level.

Great Upright Vibe

While not recommended for solid body installation, I installed these strings on a Kala solid body UBASS and the result is inspiring. Flawless, stable intonation and an big upright bass sound that is extremely articulate and well-defined. Completely renewed my UBASS interest and enjoyment.
