The bass you can travel with! The Kala U-Bass sets a new sonic standard for "travel-sized" instruments. It's sized to fit into the overhead compartment of an airplane, yet's it's packed with thick, rich acoustic bass tone. In fact, the U-Bass's tone comes startlingly close to that of traditional double bass - something that anyone used to lugging around an upright will love. And since this little uke-style instrument uses traditional bass tuning, there's virtually no learning curve if your used to a standard bass guitar.Kala Spruce Top U-Bass Acoustic-electric Travel-sized Bass Guitar at a Glance:
- Special U-Bass Strings provide deep, warm, and rich acoustic bass tone
- The right tonewoods bring out this U-Bass's expressive and full-bodied sound
- Custom Kala electronics with active EQ make this U-Bass a real live performer
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 string provide plenty of low frequency umph, which resonates with a deep, rich, and wooden quality that's both reminiscent of the coveted upright sound and colored with a uniquely musical U-Bass quality all of its own.The right tonewoods bring out this U-Bass's expressive and full-bodied sound
As an acoustic instrument, another major factor in the U-Bass's tone is the selection of tonewoods Kala chose. A mahogany body, complemented by a mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and a rosewood bridge add to the vibrance of this U-Bass, giving it a warm and slightly dark (but not muddy) fundamental tone. On top of that, they gave this U-Bass a solid spruce top, which adds a touch of extra midrange definition to your tone.Custom Kala electronics with active EQ make this U-Bass a real live performer
