The Kala Journeyman acoustic-electric U-Bass is a gorgeous and wonderful piece of art to work with. The fine craftsmanship of this instrument makes it that much more enjoyable along with its big and warm sound. Thanks to the power of the UK-500B Piezo pickup, you are guaranteed a full and warm sound when amplified. For those of you who are looking to perfect your craft and have a very solid U-Bass without breaking the bank, this is definitely one of the best options you can go to.

Fine Craftsmanship
When it comes to the work of Kala, the Journeyman U-Bass speaks in volumes. The all-around mahogany body, with the mahogany neck with a cream binding is very pleasing on the eyes. Not only is it candy for your eyes, it's also very warm in its sound thanks to the tonal frequencies given by mahogany wood. The F-holes resonate a natural reverb through the body of the U-Bass and gives it a very distinct sound.

Big and Warm Sound
As previously mentioned, the gorgeous deep and warm sound we hear from this U-Bass is thanks to the handy work of the mahogany wood. With the f-holes as well on the U-Bass we can expect quite a bit more resonance from the instrument. When combining the mahogany tone-wood with the f-holes, you can expect a natural warm reverb coming from the U-Bass.

UK-500B Piezo Pickup
With the power of the UK-500B Piezo pickup, you can amplify your tone, as well as manipulating 100% of your tone using the EQ settings on the system itself. The UK-500B Piezo pickup system is perfect for truly exploring your tone and amplifying your U-Bass to its fullest potential.

it is a very beautiful bass the moment I laid eyes on it. So I grabbed it and decided to purchase it. It had no dents or holes and the strings weren't worn out. Usually when purchasing an instrument it should work. So people pick it up and head straight out not knowing if it works or not. So unfortunately that was the case. Right before I walked out the door I wanted to see how it sounds. So I plugged it in and nothing. I turned on the tuning button and it wouldn't show the letters. So I reported the problem and nothing could be done. So they searched online and found one. Brand new. I had them send it to my address in the next 2 days. And 8 in the morning. Now everything looks and sounds fine. I'd say they handled the problem well. But I'd like to advise them to check there instruments just in case this happens again. Thank you.

I cannot express how tickled I am with this instrument. It has a wonderful bass sound at a fraction of the size and cost. It is a great way to learn bass or to have one to carry around with you. It is so much fun to play. And it's really very pretty. My daughter thinks the f-holes are "awesome." You will need an amp, though, if you want to be heard in an ensemble or at a distance of more than two feet. The Hartke D15 is a good, affordable choice with a great sound. And your neighbors won't hate you, either.

Nice uke

Very nice little bass ukulele. Bridge is not drilled large enough to fit polyurethane strings. Can be played unplugged to practice with the supplied round wound strings. Sounds almost like a big bass plugged in to an amp.

GREAT UBASS

I just got my first ubass as present and It's super cool. I don't have it down quite yet but it's a great tool to start on. I was glad I received this particular model due to the wood quality and sound holes, it looks fantastic.
