    Apologies if this has been discussed to death already:

    How does one get rid of the "sticky" feeling of the polyurethane U-Bass strings?

    The polyurethane pahoehoe strings that come on a standard ubass aren't sticky. The thundergut strings that come on a gold tone microbass are very sticky for most people. Powder seems to be the most commonly used remedy.

    If you have a microbass, it can be strung with pahoehoe strings. You can order a 24"+ scale set directly from road toad.

    UBass strings aren't nearly as bad as Ashbory strings were, but occasionally they'll get a little sticky. Some baby powder on your hands rubbed up and down the strings will take care of it.
