Great alternative to the standard U-bass type strings
Lancelot13 24.12.2016
I use these on a second uke bass and they sound great. Whereas the standard Kala U-bass type strings sound quite mellow and double bass-like, these sound more like bass guitar strings. Quite a bit brighter and more harmonics than the plastic/rubber style strings. They fitted my bass great and I must admit I use this bass now more than the one with the original U-bass style strings. The tension of the strings is also slightly higher and if you struggle slightly with standard U-bass strings which tend to 'roll' and move under your fingers a bit when playing then you might want to give these a try - much closer to playing an electric bass. I can't really think of anything negative about them - I've had them on my bass for quite a while and they seem to stay nice and bright sounding. They let me get different tones from the bass depending on how I play - more so than the original strings which sound more or less the same however you play them.

It might be worth your while checking the length of string required for your U-Bass, as these strings fell a tiny bit short for mine. What I mean by that is that on some of the strings, the part from the nut to the machinehead, the string isn't fully wound like the playing part of the string, it's thinner (presumably to help with tunage slipping), but the strings could do with another inch or two of the fully wound string part as it very nearly didn't fit mine. It wasn't until the strings were fully tuned up and settled that the fat part of the string was sitting on the nut. It almost didn't fit. That said, they did fit just about in the end.

In terms of sound, they sound like steel wound bass strings. If that's the sound you're looking for, this are definitely worth a go. Now that I've tried these strings on my U-Bass, I'm not going back to the rubbery strings.

Pyramid U-Bass Strings that do not fit a Ukulele as supplied
Anonymous 06.02.2015
These strings will work but you will need to organise your own set of washers because the metal fittings that terminate the Strings simply pull through the hole in a Kala U-Bass (and the other U-Bases supplied by Thoman) I spoke to Jonas who told me that they supply these strings like this even though they know that the strings cannot be fitted as they are to a U-Bass. Washers will be required. Jonas was unable to supply any to me when I asked for help and suggested that I tie the string into a big knot at one end. However, this would shorten the only just right string making it unusable on the U-Bass. I am sure that with a bit of fiddling I will be able to get the strings to fit. Just be aware that you may not be fitting these strings on the same day that they arrive unless you have some additional washers or similar. The strings have so far been rather disappointing and the service from Thoman equally so, I am sad to say.

pyramid bass strings
James8638 02.09.2014
just a small review on the bass strings, i bought the strings to replace the big thick uke strings as i felt they were to big and bulky, the pyramid strings give you the feel of a real bass string so if you are used to playing bass strings these are the ideal strings for you.
i thought that the strings would not give you that true bass sound as it was a travel bass that i bought but suprisingly i was overwhelmed by the sound that i got off these bass strings, from a very mellow sound to a more modern bright sound by just using the tone control on my bass,they take a while to settle in but well worth the wait,
only thing is fitting the strings to acoustic bass is a nightmare as the strings have to be fitted inside of the body, i used small washers to fit on end of strings so they would,nt slip througth the holes for the strings as there is quite a lot of tension a that part of the bass, but overall the strings are amazing..
