Uke-sized bass! Imagine the fun possibilities... 

This Barnes & Mullins BMUK1 bass ukulele has an inbuilt Pickup with a Tuner and EQ controls too so amplification is a breeze. Unplugged you'll still find great volume and wamth, especially in the lower-mids. Perfect to accompany other smaller members of the ukulele family. 

Tuned just like a bass guitar but the size of a baritone uke, this little powerhouse will always be ready to pick up and play. 

Its body features an attractively grained, satin mahogany top, back and sides which are accentuated by a lightly coloured wood binding. There are even handy strap buttons too. 

Common bass ukulele tuning: E, A, D, G – Same as the four strings of a bass guitar

Why should I buy a bass ukulele?

The ukulele is one of the easier string instruments to play – and certainly one of the most fun. However, before you buy your uke, you may be slightly confused about the different types available.

What size ukulele should I buy?

The bass ukulele is a relatively new type of ukulele on the scene. Although the bass ukulele scale length is only marginally longer than that of a baritone uke, the bass ukulele uses specially designed strings which are thicker in order for lower bass frequency notes to be achieved.

The bass ukulele is tuned the same way as a bass guitar – E, A, D, G – and is therefore a great instrument for bassists to pick up and immediately transfer their skills to. It is played in the same style as bass guitar, with strings that are plucked rather than strummed. Its low and warm tone offers an excellent option for ukulele ensembles to support the low-end of their overall sound.
