Thunderguts and the Solidbody

Mike Upton Trying Out a Set of Aquila Thundergut Strings on a Solidbody uBass.

If you were wondering how Aquila Thundergut strings sound on a Solidbody uBass, wonder no more.

Kala uploaded a video of Mike Upton testing out a set of Thunderguts on the Solidbody.

The Thunderguts for the Solidbody are slightly different from the T-guts for the Acoustics, in that they have terminations on the ends of the strings so they won’t slip out from the holes in the body.

The T-gut strings aren’t listed on the Kala or Kala Gear web sites yet.

UPDATE 5/31: According to Mark Milazzo of Kala, the Thundergut terminations are being fabricated now and the strings should be available for purchase soon. “We are doing the terminations for Thunderguts for Solid Bodies in our California custom shop. They will be available at KalaGear.com in a couple of weeks. If you want to know when they become available drop me a note at mark@kalabrandmusic.com. Thanks for all the support and interest in the Kala UBass!”

  1. Guys, We are doing the terminations for Thunderguts for Solid Bodies in our California custom shop. They will be available at KalaGear.com in a couple of weeks. If you want to know when they become available drop me a note at mark@kalabrandmusic.com. Thanks for all the support and interest in the Kala UBass! We should be getting some video soon of the Musicians Institute UBass day soon. Should be killer footage!

  2. Can’t find the new Thundergut strings for the solid body in the Houston, Texas area. Any ideas?
