Kala U-Bass Rumbler reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the August issue of the magazine features a review of the U-Bass Rumbler bass ukulele from Kala. The instrument was delivered for review by official Kala distributor, Warwick Distribution.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“Rumbler’s tone is legible, clear, selective and at the same time soft, full, deep and saturated. This is probably the biggest success of the U-Bass – these illusionistic sounds that seem like coming from much larger and more serious instruments.”

“The group of U-Bass users constantly grows, and among hundreds of more or less known musicians shine great artists like Nathan East, Lee Sklar, Esperanza Spalding, Tal Wilkenfeld and Stu Hamm. Are we still going to be amazed by the increasing popularity of Kala’s U-Bass?”

“For all of you that have already left behind shredding stunts and for those who seek inspiration in original, unconventional instruments and fresh sounds, Rumbler is a purchase worth recommending.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
