The New Way to Tune

For years, musicians have been stuck with plug-in electric tuners that were bulky, hard to use, and forced the entire band be as quiet as possible. Those days are over. Bass Central is proud to offer the Fender Clip-on Tuner! Whether you are a working bass player who is out every night at cover gigs, starting your first band, or just someone looking for a new tuner for home use, this selection is ideal for your needs. 

This small tuner is very accurate and easy to use while you are on stage – even in dark conditions. All you have to do is clip one of these bad boys onto your bass and you’ll be able to tune with ease in even noisy areas. Many stage musicians swear by these tuners, as they work more efficiently than other selections. 

When you purchase a Fender Clip-on tuner, you’ll have no problem tuning your bass, as well as your guitar, ukulele, or violin. It also offers chromatic tuning options.

Low End Uke – The Kala U-BASS

Kala U-BASS |
When you think of a ukulele, the last thing that comes to mind is bass. Kala is here to change your mind. They have been making the Kala U-BASS, a 21” bass that is truly groundbreaking. From fretless electric selections to solid-body 5-string models, you’ll be blown away by how much low end these little guys produce.

The interesting thing about the U-BASS is that it produces the same sounds as a standard bass guitar. It is tuned in the traditional bass tuning of E-A-D-G, which means that any bass player can pick it up and start making music with it immediately. You may be asking yourself, “how does it manage to be in the same range as a standard bass guitar?” The low-end is achieved through its strong polyurethane strings. 

Bass players who have reviewed this selection all tend to say the same thing – they didn’t believe it would be a decent instrument at first, but once they tried it out, they realized that it was a fun and unique bass that can go toe to toe with any other standard bass guitar on the market. Take a look at the Kala U-BASS selections offered by and place your order for this great selection today!
