Comments about Kala Solid Top Acoustic-Electric U-Bass:

After seeing YouTube videos of musicians playing the U-Bass, I wanted one but didn't really want to spend $400+ on what had to be a freaky toy. I finally made the plunge and was amazed with the little instrument. I found that it was surprisingly easy to adjust to the freakishly short scale and the unamplified acoustic sound coming out of this tiny box was nothing short of amazing. Perfect for working out jazz lines and just noodling while seated in a comfy chair. When plugged into a bass amp, I was blown away. You could actually gig with this thing. I have not been this impressed with a musical instrument in a long time. I just wish I hadn't waited so long.

    Comments about Kala Solid Top Acoustic-Electric U-Bass:

    This ukulele is horribly constructed. The frets at are so sharp that one may cut one's fingers if not careful. There are glue marks allover. Got to return it.

        Comments about Kala Solid Top Acoustic-Electric U-Bass:

        These things are just garbage. Sharp frets, dull sound, and won't project any sound from any of my amps even cranked to full volume. Save your money. They aren't worth ten as a toy in the Cracker Barrel gift shop.

            Stay away. This thing really is like a cheap toy you'd pick up in CrackerBarrel at the gift shop. Sounds awful and no volume plugged or not. And I mean NO volume.
