Nice alternative to the black polyurethane strings

Ishfaq.co.uk, 20.12.2017
I have 2 Kala basses, so decided to put these on the 5-string version. Still easier to play than standard bass strings, but quite a bit more tension than the polyurethane ones, which means you can play faster. Sound is still nice and fat, with just a little more top end. The low B is a lot better than the polyurethane version, which is incredibly thick and not so usable.

Recommendation for electric bassists

Rainer665, 23.03.2017
After I had the wish of a 5-string solid body bass (Kala SUB, the cheaper version for about 500 euros), I wanted to get closer to a regular electric bass from the feeling of playing and the sound. I did not get the UBass in Germany, he came as B-ware from the USA.
I was therefore amazed to see that Thomann is leading the 5-string set of the Metal Round Wound - the only five-string set for bass ukus.

Even with my "acoustic" Ukulelenbass disturbed me the always slightly sticky plastic strings, from which manufacturer and from what material always synonymous. In addition, the sound is of course very bass-balanced without any appreciable high or even mid-range.

The around 50 euros for the review reviewed here are really not a bargain, but I dared.

Results:
To put on: more pleasant than with the plastic cords, you can start without "pre-tensioning" and winds only a little more than with a regular electric bass on the vortex. A bit like thick concert guitar strings.

Votes: well, go! No more this annoying gluing and sudden slacking in the saddle, which caused the tuning process in the plastic ribs to the nerve test.

Gameplay: Yeah, that's isses! Play almost like bass-steel strings, very pleasant, the fingers can slip unbraked, also from the tension more firmly than the "Plastics". The strength of the strings corresponds to those of the E-Bass strings.

Sound: Still very bass-accented, but with a lot of highs - one can rauskrhen confidently (with headphones, of course more heights than over an amp). The midrange is underrepresented. Since you can but with an EQ still rauskitzeln, which goes quite well.

Stability: I'm still in the tuning phase. Let's see how long this takes.

Strings: For the new tension too high. The Ubass can not be adjusted to optimize the string position. It goes, but it would certainly be even better. Due to the still relatively low string tension, the octave purity remains intact.

Problems: After winding the new strings (before the black Pahoehoes were on it) the strings came in extremely different volume, which I did not notice with the factory plastic strings. I have always had this again with bridge piezo-pickups, obviously this is apparently not very important in the case of possible final checks. The subsequent correction procedure was extremely annoying:

: Strings down, bridge out, paper strips under the too quiet string positions, bridge again, agree, listen: nee, does not fit yet! :
Again again ...

It cost me an afternoon and a lot of nerves. It seems that the pickup is more sensitive to the higher string tension. I would be interested in whether the effect also occurs with other users.

Conclusion: For me as an E-Basser, the conversion despite the restrictions in total paid off absolutely. For bass players who want to play the (solid body) UBass as a second instrument: absolute recommendation !!!
