Available through Kala’s web store for $15.98 or through the Bass Buddy company themselves, the system consists of three small thumb rests that you can place anywhere on your electric bass or uBass. And the best part is that you don;t have to put any holes in your beloved instrument. The rests attach with a special adhesive supplied with the system. The company says they can easily be removed if necessary without damage to your instrument.
According to Bass Buddy:
The system uses three Bass Buddy thumb rests that you can place exactly where you need them to provide fixed reference points for you thumb. You get greater playing accuracy and speed, and more versatility in the sounds you get from your bass! Use a Bass Buddy close to the bridge for an extra “twangy” sound, the center Bass Buddy for your normal playing, and a Bass Buddy close to the neck for an extra full sound.
If you were looking for a way to put a thumb rest on your uBass, then the Bass Buddy is worth a shot. It’s cheap enough to try and if you don’t like it, they can easily be removed.
