Can’t find a flaw

What a beautiful little instrument. I’m not super picky so I opted to buy a blemished instrument. Playability was all I was looking for. Not only is it out of the box playable, I can’t find the reason it was sold as a blemish. The Kala quality control has higher standards than I.

This ubass isn’t just eye candy

I fell in love with the looks of the journeyman, with those sophisticated looking f holes and piping around the instrument. But I hesitated because at the end of the day, it’s all about the sound. My local store just had one with the metal round wound strings and I wanted the mellow upright-bass sound of the fat strings (Aquilas). When the Kala rep told me they not only had one already with those strings but that it was on spring clearance, I knew the heavens wanted me to have it. It has been all I hoped for and more. Plus...where’s the blemish?

Love my Journeyman

Bought a blem and love it! Plays ok, getting used to the feel of the white “rubber” strings, but still amazed how great it sounds plugged in.

Awesome little bass

I usually play electric bass guitar, but I started out on a U-Bass, and have owned 4 of them over the years. This is by far my favorite U-Bass. I never really liked the black Pahoehoe strings. I've tried Aquila reds, round wounds, and flats, but this Journeyman with Aquila Thunderguts is exactly the sound I've been looking for. Beautiful instrument and tone. Stays in tune. Gives that upright vibe in a lightweight easy-to-travel-with size. My bandmates love it too.
