    Incredible acoustic bass

    The bass plays remarkably well in spite of a very high action and no real way to lower the action. Flat wound string make the bass sound very much like a standup bass, round wound strings can have a lot of finger noise, my preference is flat wound. Playing through a markbass rig with a 500w vintage head.

    Love it!

    So much fun! It’s addictive. Sounds huge when it’s plugged into an amp, but sounds really nice unplugged as well. I will be buying more Kala stuff for sure!

    Wowzie impulse buy

    This is my fifth Ubass., bought on a whim. When I took it to my regular uke group jam, everyone commented on how great it sounded, and they are used to Ubass wonders. I was surprised to notice how comfortable I felt playing it. I don't know what special juju Kala put in this instrument, but it's helped me move up a level.

    Great U-bass, especially with the Thunderbrown strings!

    The Journeyman Acoustic Electric gives the best of both worlds, unplugged and amplified. I had recently bought the 15th anniversary edition U-Bass, but was unhappy with the round-wound metal strings. Not being a bass player, nor ukulele player, I found with my low skill level I was getting tremendous buzzing pretty much everywhere on the fretboard. I know most seem to prefer the metal round wound strings. With a bit more mileage I’m hoping I will also adapt. In the meantime, i’m thrilled with the journeyman U-bass, with the option Kala gave me of the more forgiving rubber/latex strings and no buzzing at all. Having invented my medical harmonica (a diatonic chord harmonica, which is primarily played as a chording instrument, playing 8 chords, I’m hoping to back up the chordal playing with the U-bass. Thank you Kala for being accommodating and versatile!
