    not really much of a review. i had to go play one, and not to be too pessimistic, but i dont see the point other than a ukulele manufacturer produces these. the sound is no better than the DeArmond Ashbory bass. it has the same problem of utilizing urethane or silicone strings, giving it a rubber band sound that cant be fixed. its neat because its small, but its also a toy with no real practical purpose. as for a travel bass, maybe, but there is no situation where i need an uncomfortable bass that badly. there are other options, though not enough, to have a more playable instrument that qualifies as carry-on luggage. if you collect neat bass toys this is a fit. as a functioning bass, it is not at all practical, doesnt sound good, nor is it comfortable to play.

    Thanks for your feedback Mr Twirk.

    As with any bass, you have to like the way it feels to want to play that particular instrument.

    Once you get past the “Bouncy” feel of the strings, The U-Bass can be quite functuonal. and kind of fun…
    Just check out any of the latest U-bass vids we brought back from NAMM.
