Details

This is the Ukulele Bass all other Ukulele Basses will be talking about in the pub. The Timber bass is a short scale, solid body electric bass. Beautiful and very versatile, portable, tuned to EADG and playable like a full size bass guitar with half of the physical exertion. Sound is deep, rich and resonant due to its more traditional metal wound strings (spares available soon from La Bella).

The Timber bass has 21.5" scale length over a solid USA made cherry body bolted to a maple neck and hard maple fingerboard. The strings are metal wound with a synthetic core making them light to the touch but authentic in texture and feel. Fitted with the Uke Bass players favourite - the Shadow piezo pickup, that runs on an active 6V lithium cell powered preamp system with volume/tone control and digital tuner onboard. The strap is integrated into the heel joint on the neck, and fixes onto the endpin jack socket on the bottom bout, so you can leave it on the bass all the time.

It is a small touch but it is quite exciting to realise that this Ukulele Bass is made completely in the USA. The Strap, Strings, Bag and Body are all made by established American companies. All of the early reviews of this instrument are positive and with good reason. Everybody and their uncle are trying to make Ukulele Basses nowadays but when the Magic Fluke Company get involved, they get it right. This is a fine addition to a line of Ukuleles including the Firefly and Flea and the consensus amongst the staff here at SUS is that it is the best Ukulele bass out there.

Please note: this listing is for the FRETTED version!
