This ukulele bass handbook offers a theoretical introduction to the development of the instrument and its maintenance, stringing and care. Discover the secret of the "UBass": how can such a small instrument make a sound that deep? Co-author Martin "Bassmati" Schroeder put the Kala UBass to the acid test and lets us take part in his experiences in studio and live recordings.
