  4. that's what I was thinking
     
  5. Kinda looks that way...its got the rubbery strings. I wonder if it can put out any respectable volume acoustically.

    Looks awesome, but it seems a bit pricey for a "travel bass".

    I'll try to get an MP3 sound clip up on the semi-hollow basses around mid November.

  13. Hey, welcome to Talkbass. Those are the coolest Ukes I've ever seen. And the Bass Ukes look awesome! I'd love to try one out someday. :cool:

    That primavera one is now Michael Aratani's... he is bringing it to the Ukulele Guild of Hawaii Exhibition in Waikiki next weekend. I'm bringing my more traditional uke shaped beasties. I have 3 that are getting finished up this weekend.

    The semi hollow bass shares the same lower body shape as my baritone uke so that I can use a standard uke case. Last thing I want is to be in the case building business!

    I can't play nuttin' worth publishing, so I can maybe get some mp3 clips from da pro's when I'm in HI.
     
  16. Beatiful woods there. What's the wood of the one on the right? I'm guessing the two on the left are Koa and Walnut? :cool:

    Here's an mp3 of that bass I recorded with Chris Hadden playing at the Ukulele Guild of Hawaii Exhibition.

    http://www.bassuke.com/files/SemiHollow4_clip1.mp3

    Recorded through the built in mic's on a Zoom H4. Bass was plugged into a small powered speaker and I used a K&K pure preamp as a volume/tone control. A bass amp works better, but it gives you an idea of the sound.
