While the Pyramid steel strings are not new for the uBass – we told you about them back in 2012 – Mike Upton of Kala just wants you to know that they are available on the company’s web site and from string retailers. They offer an alternative to the traditional Pahoehoe strings on the uBass.
As Mike says in THIS VIDEO demonstrating the strings on an acoustic uBass, the Pyramid strings offer “high end articulation and good fundamentals.”
If you’re looking for an alternative sound for your uBass, or (gasp!) you want to sound like all the competitive Ukulele basses out there, pick up a set of Pyramid steels. You can get them HERE from Kala (though the web site says currently they are out of stock), or at your favorite online string retailer.
You can get them for your Solidbody uBass too.
Check THIS VIDEO for a comparison between the Pahoehoe and Pyramid strings on an acoustic uBass.
