          Comments about Kala Rumbler Fretted Acoustic Electric U-BASS:

          This is a great little bass. I already own a ubass with the solid spruce top. Although I like that ubass and played many gigs with it, I have intonation problems with it. Also it has a pickup but no on board preamp so that was an extra piece of equipment I needed to carry and hook up. The Rumbler I received from MF was set up perfectly out of the box. The preamp is just fine and very convenient with the onboard tuner which I found to be pretty accurate. Sounds great through all of my bass amps.Yes, it does come very close to the sound of an upright double bass without the problems of transporting that monster. The Rumbler is mahogany laminate, not a solid top but my upright is laminate, not carved and they all sound great. Also the mahogany finish is very appealing to the eye. Only finish problem I have is some fret ends closer to the body could have been smoothed a bit more. This however is not enough for me to change my 5 star rating. I'm in an acoustic band and brought it to practice the other night. It received rave reviews from the other guys. We do about 30 to 40 shows a year and I normally play the upright or an Ibanez acoustic electric bass for most gigs, but the Rumbler will be perfect to use as was my other Ubass at the venues that give the band limited space to set up. Get one. You won't be disappointed!

              Bought it for a recording project I'm working on where the client wanted an acoustic vibe and for a travel bass. This thing sounds like an upright! Just used it at a live gig yesterday. I brought along my regular bass for a back up if the Ubass was unsuitable but never opened the case. I'm impressed.
