    Default Kala Metal-Wound Strings

    Hi everyone. I have just acquired a used, fretted Kala U-bass, and it has the metal-wound Kala strings on it. I was hoping for more of a standup-bass sound than I'm getting, and I was wondering if switching to the synthetic strings would get me closer, or if the sound is just a matter of playing technique (of which I have absolutely none).

    Thanks

    Definitely put on the Road Toad Pahoehoes! You'll be very happy, they're a pain to change and get stretched out, but well worth it!
