When one of our favourite suppliers first told me about these new bass ukes coming in from China I was already very interested by his description. Today he brought some in and I think they’re superb! They feature a solid acacia top, bevelled arm rest, excellent electronics, Aquila bass strings and a great sound all for under £300.
The sound is classic ukulele bass – somewhere between a stand up acoustic bass and an electric bass guitar. These are fretless which lend themselves perfectly to that old double bass sound. It also makes them so smooth and comfortable to play and there are fret markers to help you find your place.
For a solid top ukulele bass at the price point I think they’re a bargain. They look and sound amazing.
