  1. Dear Kala U-Bass:
    “Well, I think I’m goin’ out of my head
    Yes, I think I’m goin’ out of my head
    Over you, Over you
    I want you to want me, I need you so badly
    I can’t think of anything but you…”

  2. I don’t like the feel of the rubber strings and I am switching to flat wounds. Do you see any issues I should be aware of thanks Doc Savage

    1. I’d ask Kala about that. Regular flat wounds will be too long and thick and create too much tension, can ruin the neck. Their electric versions use strings for the 20 inch scale length, but because any kind of metal string will have much more tension, I’d be very careful! I love the rubber strings. It took me a few days to get used to but I now absolutely love them.

  3. Being left-handed I am not sure if they make a left-handed UBass but if they do I would like to try one.

  4. Would to win one of these! They are easier than a bass guitar to play I hear, and a lot of fun too! Played by all of the best, so they must be the best!

  5. Whoa, that little beast has a beautiful voice! My gast is almost flabbered! 😎😁😎

    Thank you Ariane and Kala for arranging this great giveaway!!

  6. Amazing instrument! I played around with one at my local music store and can definitely see the appeal!

  7. Winning this bass would give me the best reason to sell my heavy bass Thunderbird guitar, because it will give my small hands an easier time to play awesome Clapton music.

  8. Sweet. I’d love to have a U-Bass. They are so awesome. Thanks for doing this giveaway and all the awesome videos
