I have joined two uke groups locally, one an older generation group where they are mostly pensioners, there is already a bass uke player there so I swap between uke and bass. The other group is a more mixed age group and a little more focused, I play bass all the while in that one.
Have recently changed strings from Aquilla Thunder Reds to Kala UBass Silver wound strings. I found the intonation was going out after the 5th fret. I did like the rubber feeling of the Aquillas, but I feel more at home with the Silvers. The intonation is so much better and they feel almost identical to normal roundwound bass guitar strings. Having played with Rotosound Swing bass or DR Fat Beams all my playing life, the Kala strings are a tad more slippery. They do have quite a lot of string noise when fresh. Had them on for a month and its wearing off a little, but there's still a fair bit of finger squeak :-)
