*Please note for use on polyurethane string U•BASS® setups, the instrument will need a new, compatible nut to accommodate these strings. Kala Metal Round Wound U•Bass Strings have a lower gauge that is too thin for the nut slots on a U•BASS® pre-fit for Polyurethane strings. This can cause buzzing on open string notes. It's recommended that a nut designed for the round wound strings is used. You can purchase one here: U•BASS TUSQ Nut - 4 String (RW). / U•BASS TUSQ Nut - 5 String (RW). Please note that a nut swap should always be performed by an experienced instrument technician for best results. Due to the change to a higher tension as well, a truss rod adjustment is also recommended.
**Not for use on California Solid Body U•BASS®
***Please also note that Kala is not responsible for damages to instruments caused by new string installments.
