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)...

Great sound, great feel!

I replaced my Thunderguts with Thunderbrowns on my fretless u-bass. Huge difference in sound and feel -- less sticky, less plastic-sounding, richer sound, and they even look prettier :) The low tension and rubber coating was really comfortable, even for someone who's gotten used to rough stainless steel roundwounds and high tension flatwounds. These sound especially great for jazz, R&B, reggae, etc! Highly recommend!
