So much fun
This is such a fun instrument to play. I can't recommend it enough. It is great for playing and practicing on your own. No amp to noodle around on your own and you won't wake up the whole house. If you want to play with others you will need to plug in. Once plugged in, it has a wonderful double bass sound, especially on the low E-string. Did I mention it was a blast to play? I have a little battery power amp I plan to use when traveling but it sounds best on my Fender Rumble 25. I've found I get the best tone with the treble and mid turned all the way down and the bass most of the way up on the onboard EQ. This counter acts the lower perceived volume on the E-string. If you have a good bass amp, you can dial this in even further. This is an awesome UBass for the price. Kala is an awesome brand with great customer service if you need it.
