Tiny bass, Big sound

02.01.2016
Whilst buying this as a gift for my Double bass playing partner I "fretted" (sorry) over FL or FS. I chose the FL despite many reviews saying that the FL was too fiddly at this scale.

The U-Bass has been played constantly since Christmas and he loves it rubber strings and all.
He has had no issues with it being FL, I suppose due to fretless playing with his double bass.

Great quality, the handy built in tuner is reassuring and convenient. Perfect for noodling on the sofa.

It was intended as a fun, portable practice instrument, but with the fab sound it produces when plugged into an amp, I can see it being used as a "backup" bass, as well as a novelty gigging instrument too.

We were both blown away by the quality of the sound when it was plugged in - it really exceeded expectations.

Also small enough to take away on holiday, possibly even as carry-on luggage.

All-in-all very pleased.

On-delivery, the U-Bass was well packaged and padded.
Great customer service from Thomann too!

There are two versions of the Rumbler!

cukulele7, 27.10.2018
I bought this as I wanted a 20" scale fretless Kala u-bass, already owning a fretted version. I wanted a fretless for adding round wound strings. The Rumbler had an attractive price and came with good reviews and value-for-money in many places.
But, I am not very impressed with the quality. It looks really cheap; much cheaper that other more reasonably priced instruments. The strings are the Silver Rumblers, which again I am not impressed with. But these can be changed. One challenge, though, is that this version of the u-bass does NOT have the little hatch on the back. This means I will not be able to add round wounds as I can't access the string holes from below. In my research I had not noticed this. There are two versions of the Rambler, you see! This one is the older. The other one can be seen on the Kala site.
I want to make it clear that Thomann has no fault in this! They have sent me the exact instrument that is displayed and described on their site, and which I ordered. I got confused by the fact there are two versions of the Rumbler in circulation.
It is still a good deal if you want a short scale bass to play around with, but I am going to try shift mine, and get another one like the fretless spruce top, which is only about ¤30-40 more expensive.
