The Bass ukulele is relatively new to the ukulele scene. They are generally built on a baritone body, fitted with strings made from a special plastic compound that assures superior performance. They sound completely different to any other ukulele you've ever heard before! The bass ukulele is best played through an amplifier to hear this uke at its best. When plugged in, the ukulele bass produces a sound that rivals any full sized bass guitar or upright bass! Small enough to fit into your suitcase, but with a sound that's big.

Die-cast low ratio machine heads ensure accurate tuning and the addition of a truss rod results in a secure and stable neck.
The strings fitted to the Korala UKBB-310 are Aquila Thundergut bass strings.
