A bit work need for flat wound
The best solution for metal strings.
Sound is much greater than original wooden nut.
also precise enough for perfect fitting on my ubass with less work.
I used it for my flat wound but the gauge is a bit different from the round wound.
I need some work to widen the groove of G-string and E-string.
The right notch sizes for Thundergut Red strings, but I had to sand it down a bit to fit it in the nut slot on my U-Bass.
U-Bass Replacement Nut Upgrade to change to Round Wound Strings
I had my local Music store Tech replace the nut Kala supplied me (U•Bass TUSQ Nut - 4 String) to upgrade the U-Bass I bought several years ago to the Round Wound Strings, and I couldn't be happier! it is a whole new and more responsive instrument!
Essential for flat-wounds.
