Extremely Portable Acoustic-electric Bass!
Deep, expressive, and rich acoustic bass tone
The secret behind the big sound of the Kala U-Bass is almost as cool as its small, ultra-portable format. It comes from the combination of the right tonewoods and Kala's unique polyurethane strings. These lightweight, large-diameter strings provide plenty of low frequency oomph, which resonates with a deep, rich, and wooden quality that's both reminiscent of the coveted upright sound and colored with a uniquely musical quality all of its own.
The right tonewoods bring out this U-Bass's warm and woody sound
As an acoustic instrument, another major factor in the Exotic Mahogany U-Bass's tone is the selection of tonewoods Kala chose. This U-Bass gives you the characteristically full-bodied sound of mahogany construction. Plus, it looks simply amazing! Add to that a walnut fingerboard and a walnut bridge, and you get a kind of dark warmth that blossoms with every note.
Standout appointments and standout tone
Other standout appointments that add to the rich sound and stunning looks of the U-Bass Exotic Mahogany include a Graph Tech nut and rosewood bridge. In addition, custom Hipshot Ultralite tuning machines keep you in tune and add a nice visual enhancement to the ebony body. Finally, Fishman U-Bass EQ electronics kick out great amplified tone when you plug in. There are even built-in Volume and Tone controls and a tuner — no more fiddling with clip-ons or tuner pedals.
