Buzzing overtones from the body.
E A D G, 05.05.2020
I am a musician and a HiFi enthusiast who plays on several instruments and records at home.

I've wanted a portable bass guitar what sounds and looks great but this was the second time I sent it back to Thomann.

They had the same issue:

The U-Bass makes an unwanted buzzing noise while playing several notes up and down on the fret-board. It's not a fret buzz it's coming from inside the body.
Could be the electronics: pickup, tuner, preamp or the cables in-between or maybe because of bad gluing or poor craftsmanship.

I am not an instrument maker so I don't know what exactly the problem is but ukulele basses in this price range should not have issues like this.

By the way the bass looks beautiful and sounds great on those notes what are not resonating with the buzzing part. The sound is similar to an acoustic bass especially with metal-wound strings.

Before buying the Journeyman I was listening to many recordings of this U-Bass on studio quality headphones and I could not hear any of this buzzing noise. I am unhappy that I had to sent back the product twice. Can be a bad batch!

Kala, please make better quality instruments!
