The Bass Buddy Thumb Rest System for U-Bass from Kala consists of three stick-on thumb rests. It can be placed anywhere on your instrument for fixed reference points for your thumb, and provides greater playing accuracy and speed, more versatility in the sounds you get from your bass, and a reduction in playing fatigue.

Using one close to the bridge gives you an extra-bright "twangy" sound, at the center for more normal playing, and a third one close to the neck for that extra full sound. They can be mounted anywhere on the instrument body that suits your playing style.

Furthermore, a specially developed adhesive holds them firmly in place even under heavy play.

    KALA THBRT-UBASS reviews

    Bass Buddy Thumb Rest System for U-Bass (3-Pack) is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea / Incomplete Implemantation I cannot complain about the thumb rests because the quality and feel are fantastic.� Issues arrive when you try to install them on your guitar.� First off, you have to use razor blade to form cut the thumb rest off of the adhesive tape that it ships on.� The manufacturer should be doing this at their business.� I am sure that they do not because it is labor intensive because of the precision required to make it look right.� Next, it is not very clear, but you need to leave the thumb rest on adhesive tape and only peel back the outer layer to place it on the tractor.� Finally, the double sided adhesive sticks to the guitar quite well, but it does not hold the thumb rest.� After a few minutes of playing it slides off the tape.� The solution, gorilla glue it to the double sided tape.� Overall great idea, nice quality, poor implementation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works - Some Fitting Helps As you might expect, some fitting is necessary. The rests must first be carefully cut from the attached slab of double-sided tape. It seems to hold well, but, when I was sanding an edge down, the rest popped off leaving the tape in place. I finished sanding and placed the rest where it had been and it's holding, at least for now. Considering how important a thumb rest is, I don't think this is too much trouble. I'd do it again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not made for KALA BASS. These thumb rests were not as advertised. they aren't for the Kala bass, and therefore I put them on according to the directions for a regular bass, and they are not helpful.
