The same great UBASS sound in an affordable package! These Rumblers are amazing! They have the same low bass sound with the new silver Rumbler strings. Since it is a UBASS, the wood properties of the body make very little difference on the sound, so this uke is made with a laminate agathis body. It will be very stable in different humidity and temperature conditions, brings down the price, and has a nice rubbed mahogany vintage look to it. The imperfections in the body as you can see in the pictures are characteristics of the wood and give it a very vintage appeal! UBASS has a wonderful booming low bass sound with a short scale and a comfortable instrument size. The strings are described as “rubbery” and it takes a bit to get used to for people used to the regular bass strings, but once you do, the UBASS really does well at recreating that nice upright bass sound and is sought after by ukulele players and bass players alike. The silver Rumbler strings are made exclusively for Kala by Aquila and have a little bit more tension to them than the classic UBASS strings. It is an award-winning instrument. The sound is tremendous. The short scale makes it easy and comfortable for anyone to play. It comes ready to plug and play with a built in preamp and tuner (which is very handy on a bass because sometimes the traditional ukulele clip on tuners that most uke players use do not pick up the bases’ low tones)! I only have 3 in stock and expect them to go quick, so get yours now!
