If you can play the bass, then you can play this ukulele!
Fret lines inlayed for player reference, no frets !
Set up with the same notes as a full size bass guitar (E, A, D, G), this portable bass ukulele is a joy to play
The installed Aquila Nylgut strings absorb less moisture to assure tuning stability and provide increased accuracy of fret-intonation
Entire body is crafted with swamp ash wood
I recently bought a Hadean solid fretless uke bass thinking there's no way it could be all that great at that price point, but I loved the small size, the lined fingetboard and the transparent blue finish so I gave it a shot.
It showed up and I was amazed at the fit and finish. No finish flaws, no poorly cut edges, hardware was put on correctly and it had a quality feel. Then I plugged it in. Pickup volume balance string to string was good and the electronics were dead quiet even after putting a few pedals in the signal path. Intonation was pretty good and controls and tuners felt good.
I don't use a fretless all the time but having one with a great sound in a compact instrument that looks good available when I need it is great. The playing experience is as good as my custom built Kiesel HH2x or my '94 original Parker Fly Deluxe. I have no idea how you can sell it for under $200, but I'm really glad you do!
Thanks for another great guitar deal!
I've ordered a UkeBass a while back and I'm here to say it's wonderful. The grain and MOP is eye catching beautiful. The strings are great, they keep their tuning almost perfectly. And finally the tone. This is the only uke bass I had my hands on that did not have intonation problems. Well done. Sound is like a double bass and plays amazingly, gets everyone by surprise. Thank you.
My wife bought me one of the Hadean bass Uke for Christmas, I have to tell you I LOVE THIS THING!!! we tried the Kala U Bass and I actually prefer this one, it has such a big sound to it when ran through a amp or PA, I played it live Sunday morning and the people's faces when the saw me with it was hysterical, I am 6'2" and about 270 pounds so you can imagine how small it looks on me, lol, then when I started to play their jaws dropped lol.. Thanks for carrying these THEY ARE GREAT!!!
My Hadean Bass Uke UKBE-21 N came in a day early and arrived today at 10:45 a.m., ...everything is GREAT. It has a 9 volt battery not the CR 2032 and it is in its own battery compartment. The sound is even across all strings. For the money this is a great buy, I like it, a lot.

.....So, in a nutshell do I like it? Yes. Would I buy a more expensive model like a U- Bass? Only if that type of a thing is really what you want,
for me, no this is a much as I want to get into it but i am glad it is of good enough quality that I think a person could get a good idea on the cheep
to see if they like it. I am going to gig mine. I think it is good enough to gig.
Btw I am playing it through my everyday stuff, Carvin BX1500 into an Aguilar GS 112 and a David Eden CX110 or sometimes an 18' sub :O)

I am a huge ukulele fan, player & collector (15 ukes at last count, not including this one), but new to bass. I ordered this as a curiosity and could not be more pleased with it! Now I just have to get busy learning more about it! Don't hesitate! You will not be sorry you got this one!
