    Looking for a solid body bass.

    I have been playing a GT MicroBass and liking it very much. However, the head/neck dive bothers me a lot. I also have rotator cuff issues that means I have to wrap my upper arm with an Ace bandage....
  6. Looking for a comparison of the Phil Jones Double 4 and the Fender Rumble 15watt amps

    I am hoping some of you have experience with both. I know the prices are very different but I am more interested in the sound, use limitations etc. I have the Rumble and it works great but there...

    Hi UkerDano

    I don't know if you saw this but there is one video of a guy who uses Vise Grips to hold the strings while he takes out the accumulated winds around the tuner. I will try to find it...

    Not sure what I just bought.....

    I picked up a little used, very clean Kala UBass spruce top. It felt good and played beautifully when the owner played it. I am brand new to all this and have been reading long threads here an in...

    The bolts/screws that hold the twisters on are huge. The slot would fit some pretty big screw drivers. I am guessing they are heavy.

  13. A question about changing tuners on a possible new purchase.

    I am looking at a used 2010 Kamaka soprano that is in beautiful shape. It has been played a lot, looks brand new but has been well cared for. I love the sound and it is easy to play.

    It has one...

  17. Of the various bass ukuleles which one would be the best without an amp?

    I have been reading a lot and watching videos and have a pretty good idea of the limits of an unplugged bass ukulele. But I would like to be able to practice and play at home without an amp.

    I...
