Does anyone know if the aquila bass uke strings will work on the Kala U-Bass? I want to know if they can be tuned to regular bass tuning. EADG. Anyone?

Hi Buck,
just updated a related thread in this section- it is now on the front page of uke talk.

Because threads can bounce around depending on how recently someone has posted in one, here's the link to that other thread: http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?56951-Best-Strings-for-Kala-Ubass-(and-other-Ukulele-Basses)

I think being used on the Kala Ubass was sorta the point of Aquila Thunderguts being produced in the first place

Yes, that's what they are for. They are tighter, feel a bit less rubber-bandy than the stock strings. They are white just like all their strings. A couple guys asked if they would make custom colors, but Aquilla feels white-only strings are important to maintaining brand integrity.

If you want colour, try Worth Strings..... They are "reddish" in two varieties. Here is a link. Quite pricey, but you could widen the search? http://www.worthc.to/bass-e.html

Road Toad Music (http://www.bassuke.com/string_store.html), which makes the Pahoehoe strings for the U-Bass has a "Dreads" set. Black, red, green and yellow.
