Acoustic Bridge Names Us One of Top 23 Ukulele Blogs of 2016



A big Thank You to Andy and the guys over at Acoustic Bridge blog for naming the uBass Appreciation Society one of their “23 Ukulele Blogs You Need to Tune Into This Year.” He also provided this cool badge for us to use on our site.

We were listed 18th among the 23 Top Ukulele Blogs, though I don’t think the blogs were listed in any order. With blogs like Uke Hunt and Ukulele Underground on the list, we’re in pretty good company.

Here’s what Acoustic Bridge had to say about us:

This site focuses on those who are interested in the Kala brand uBass, which is a combination baritone ukulele and bass guitar. They offer playing tips, news and lots of info!

In case you’re not familiar with Acoustic Bridge, they cover piano, ukulele and guitar for beginning musicians and those interested in acoustic instruments. Go check out the blog and tell Andy the uBass Appreciation Society sent you.

Wishing You All the Joy of the Season


Happy Holidays from the uBass Appreciation Society!
