The Kala U-Bass is simply the most superb bargain I have yet to run across since I began playing music nearly 30 years ago. Regardless of if you land the Exotic Mahogany or one of Kala's other bass ukulele models, you'll have great tone in a fun, portable package at an absolute steal of a price. The feel is outstanding, the workmanship is stellar and the sound is killer (roll that tone down for a sweet upright imitation). It's just a flat-out good time! Go find yourself one! You'll be glad you did!!!
