Upright Ubass

I've built a few Ubasses using the Aquila Thundergut poly strings and I just got a query about whether I would be interested in making a similar short scale upright capable of being bowed. Has anyone done something similar and if so what strings and pickups would you recommend.See More

Hey, Titch.  I thought we were already CBN friends or I would have asked you sooner.  I have long admired your builds and videos.  I did not realize until today that you are in Australia.  I liked that koala uke commemoration.   I hope you and yours are safe and well.

Real good job on that banjo uke Titch! Hope to hear how she sounds. All the ones I've made with that pete plastic are surprisingly loud!

Hey Titch,

I just watched all your video. Which is a major feat due to my limited attention span.

All your builds are very clever and you play and sing well too.

Keep building and posting
