This Island Bell Baritone Bass Ukulele is essentially a contrabass although technically it is a baritone D Bass, and unique enough we wanted to discuss it with our best bass ukuleles.  There is hardly a difference and even in the companies own literature there is an interchange of words.

Features:

  • Island Bell Ukulele are  high-quality instruments
  • Includes cushioned bag.
  • Accurate tuning.
  • Warm bright sound
  • No sting buzz
  • Made of fine mahogany wood
  • Contrabass sound

The Island Bell companies produced a well made Ukulele in a range of sizes.  They offer not only the Baritone D Bass but other classic sizes including a Tenor Ukulele, Soprano Ukulele, Soprano Ukulele, Concert Ukulele and Pineapple Ukulele.

The construction of the Island Bell Ukulele comes from a variety of woods that are used intentionally depending on the size and intended tone of the Ukulele.  

While they use Koa wood, maple acacia, sapele, spruce and cedar, the 30 Inch Baritone D-Bass Ukulele is made of solid mahogany wood.

The fine mahogany body has a distinct contrabass sound that is warm and full.  The quality of the construction makes this U-Bass easy to get in tune and keep in tune which is consistent as you go up the guitar neck.  

The solid mahogany body has an amazing natural reverb that creates a tone that avoids the downfalls of some of the intonation issues that other ukuleles can be challenged with.  

The consistency in tuning allows you to create nearly pitch perfect chords and harmonies.  

As a 30 inch fretless bass ukulele, this model is great for the traveling bass player that needs a bass for practicing on tour, or just something easy to travel with.  

The Island Bell Ukulele has the signature ukulele sound associated with relaxing on the beaches of Hawaii.

FAQ:

What is the size of the Island Bell Baritone Bass?

It is a 30 inch bass

 

Can it fit in a backpack?

If you have a backpack that can fit it.  lol.  It can fit into a large backpack or you can get a small case for it.  For most backpacks it would be big as it is a contrabass ukulele.  If you need something smaller, there are smaller options for U-Bass.

 

Does it stay in tune?

Yes!  This is a well built bass ukulele.  It does a great job of staying in tune and I haven’t heard many issues about string buzz.  I mean, any guitar can come out of tune, so it’s not permanently tuned, but it’s solid.
