Kala Metal Round Wound U•Bass Strings

KA-BASS-5

$36.00

The Kala Metal Round Wound strings continue to be a favorite among U•Bassists 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 give them a great feel and makes them easy on the fingers. The Kala Metal Round Wound string set:

  • Fits all Round Wound set-up Kala U•BASS® Instruments*
  • A louder option than the original polyurethane strings.
  • For EADG tuning
  • Regular Tension
  • Suitable for 20“ - 21" Scale


*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®

***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!
