Put them on my Harley Benton U-Bass
EmilioRoberto 02.11.2018
The original strings on the HB CLU-Bass were funky to say the least. They roll off the frets, were hard to tune and quiet. I was unsure if these strings would work on my CLU-Bass, but they do and they are great. I would recommend that if you buy a CLU-Bass you buy a pack of these strings at the same time you won't regret it.

several months later and the strings are still great and sound good on the HB U-Bass

Pros: Sound great. fit on the CLU-Bass. They project more then the rubber strings that come with the bass.
Cons: They are expensive, but the only option.

Good idea in principle but I wasn't convinced....
Dodge 12.10.2017
I bought these with high expectations but was very disappointed with them. Had them on for about 20mins before taking them off - that's a lot of money to pay for 20mins playing time!! They didn't seem
to resonate at all and were very thin sounding. The G string was very dead too.

Caveat: maybe these would work better on a different U-bass? I was using the Kala Sub U bass. I've heard good reviews of them on the acoustic u bass?

a bit expensive but exellent

I bought those strings for substituting the silicon original string on my 9 years old daughter's Ukulele as she was not confortable with those stock "fat strings". She is now very happy and enjoys her ukulele bass :)
They sounds good and are easy to play, might need a bit more strength to press them but if a 10 years old kid can do it I don't think that's an issue at all. very satisfied. They are in my opinion a bit expensive...

Saitenwechsel mit Hindernissen
Mr. Jof 01.06.2019
Also soviel mal vorab: Die Metal Wound Saiten ändern den klanglichen Charakterder Bass-Ukulele ziemlich. Ich hatte sie erst auf der akustischen - und erstmal haben sie mir gar nicht gefallen. Aber irgendwie habe ich mich daran gewöhnt - und wollte sie jetzt auch auf dem Solid Body haben - das sagt ja auch schon einiges. Allerdings: Beim Aufziehen der A-Saite macht es pling - Saite gerissen :-(
Daher Abzug in der Verarbeitung.
Zum Glück hat Thomann schnell Ersatz geschickt mit etwas Nervosität aufgezogen - und die D Saite scheppert fürchterlich. Das Problem war schnell gefunden, die Saite liegt mittig im Sattel, stösst rechts und links an. Bei der akustischen liegt sie ein bisschen anders, da war das kein Problem. Ok, das kann ich der Saite nicht anrechnen. Zum Sattel feilen keine Lust gehabt - also ein bisschen TeflonBand drunter geklemmt, das dämpft ausreichen und schon gehts.
Die Saiten brauchen im Vergleich zu den Gummischnüren nicht so lange, bis sie die Stimmung halten. Der Sound geht von Kontabass mehr in Richtung e-Bass. Wird ein bisschen knackiger und (hoffe ich) durchsetzungsfähiger in der Combo. Über die Haltbarkeit kann ich noch nichts sagen, der Riss beim Aufspannen war eher ein Materialfehler.
Der Preis ist natürlich heftig - ob ich nochmal die Metal Wound kaufe oder doch lieber wieder die alten Gummistrippen aufziehe, bleibt zu sehen.
