My Bass Practice Secret Weapon

I've shared before about how I sometimes use an acoustic bass guitar to practise.

It's just so handy to have an instrument to hand and zero barrier to playing. No amps, cables, cases, or electrics to deal with...

Just pick up and play!

Well, this is my new tool - the Kala U Bass with roundwound strings.

I already have one with black polyurethane blend strings but this one has roundwound strings and it's great. It's much more natural to play if you're used to playing a regular bass guitar.

I use it all the time for practice, writing books and courses, and YouTube lessons.

Check it out.

Incidentally, these are the basses I probably use the most and below are some more bass guitar gear videos for you.
