"You might have to order them online. Not too many bass ukes out there. Do you mean a washtub bass? They may be too short for you. They are easy on the fingers but they're a little flabby and sticky. OK once you get used to it. I like the sound…"

Hi Lana, welcome to the Clubhouse!

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is... and add yourself to the Member Map. There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
