Kala EM U-BASS Exotic Mahogany

The Kala U-BASS is truly a groundbreaking short scale bass that produces the same pitches as a standard bass instrument and is tuned in traditional bass tuning, E-A-D-G. The U-BASS is strung with proprietary strings that incorporate a great bass feel with balanced tension. The U-BASS is a true pleasure to play, and the tone that these instruments produce is amazing.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Small size BIG Sound"
Overall: My wife and I have been playing for more years then we care to count. My Wife is the main bass player and when her RA set in it almost ended her playing. Her hands wouldn't work for more than a few songs due to the pain. When we found at the Kala it was a god send she can play for full 3-4 hr. jam without pain (due to the light touch). Small size Big sound tells it all. Pick one up, plug it in, and be prepared to be amazed. The sound it low and true as any bass. If you’re not looking at it you can’t tell the difference from the sound. There is a slight learning curve do to the short scale 21". Easy to play, sounds great, light and small (making it easy to transport for jams or anything else). You can get almost any sound you want from it. One thing it doesn’t do well is string bends. The rubber feeling strings require more time to stay in tune as they keep stretching, once set they stay in tune as well as most. We have both a hollow body and a solid body and love them both. They offer both a fretted and fretless models.(Not tried the fretless) Over all it’s a great addition too or replacement for your standard base.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "tiny touch"
Overall: only the slightest of pressure can be used on the 1st fret or buzz. Nice rich deep sound with an added delayed thump sound as if a drummer was in exact unison, neat! Right hand placement determines P or J tone, preamp tone & volume control really allows this uke to be what it needs to be for that moment.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
