"Hi Jared, I think it would be a shame if you built a great bass without a pre-amp/pickup. I used the battery powered pre-amp from CBGitty on a 2-string bass and it sounds pretty good. You can check out some photos and comments on my video. Good luck…"

"I like that Mr. Brown.  That's some really good advice.   I find the older I get (...and I know I am not old by any means at the age of 33) when I start stressing about a project, or a build... I just have to start making a list.…"

"Thanks Brian, that is encouraging. I guess my biggest concern is that things will start going awry after taking the notes down the last octave to genuine bass guitar range. Seems to me that in that range there's a pretty high chance of acoustic…"

"I know this may not be a Bass Uke, but it's just something to show you that even a "stick in a box" can still sound decent (especially for a git you just plan on tossing around).  It's not loud acoustically, but plugged in…"

"From what I can see, it looks awesome! I got a used Peavey 12" bass amp for $60 on Craigslist.  Thumps enough for me.  I also play some of my ukes and my harmonicas through it."

"I just built this one for my godson. Uses Ashbory tuners and the strings from Road Toad. I don't see how you could do it for unser $50. The tuners and strings together will be more than that. Add in some fretwire and you will be closer to $70…"

PhilUSAFRet replied to Jared's discussion 1st time builder, bass uke, is this plausible? in the group Cigar Box Basses

1st time builder, bass uke, is this plausible?

Hey folks! I've been going back and forth for months on whether or not I can pull off building this instrument, and I'm wondering what you think. I want to build my own bass ukulele, 4 polyurethane strings (probably the Kala Silver Rumblers), standard tuning, acoustically useful, and I know a few of you have done similar things. I don't need a masterpiece, or something my grandchildren can play, I just need something I can mess around with while I sit in the car and wait for my wife in the…See More
