More Bass, Less Space!
The KALA U•BASS is truly a ground-breaking short scale (21”) bass that produces the same pitches as a standard bass instrument and is tuned in traditional bass tuning, E-A-D-G. Available in fretted and fretless, 4 and 5 string, acousticelectric, and solid body models. It is strung with proprietary polyurethane strings that reproduce incredible bottom-end both live and in the studio. The strings incorporate a great bass feel, with balanced tension, and are a true pleasure to play..
California Solid Body
The Kala Solid Body U-Bass is the next step in the evolution of Kala's line of 21 inch scale bass instruments equipped with Kala's proprietary polyurethane strings. This next generation of U-Bass is being manufactured in California and assembled in Kala's custom shop.
The Kala Acoustic-Electric U-Bass features Kala's proprietary polyurethane strings, custom shadow electronics, a 21" scale length with Hard-Foam case or Custom Gig Bag included that meets airline carry-on requirements, custom Hipshot Tuners (on specified models), and are made and set-up in the U.S.A by Kala.
The New S-U-B Solid Body U-bass is unbelievably Subductive and is an affordable alternative to our California Solid Body bassses. Subductive is a word that describes how the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point in the Pacific Ocean, was created. It is the phenomenon when one tectonic plate dives underneath another and creates a deep spot in the ocean floor. The custom U-Bass strings used on the U-Bass produce frequencies that dive below normal bass frequencies.
