The Kala 20 ½-inch short-scale U-Bass first hit the market in 2008. This Kala Exotic Mahogany model’s beautiful exotic mahogany top, back, and sides set it apart by virtue of the eye-catching grain patterns. Set-up in the US with round wound strings, UBASS-EM-FSRW offers familiarity to players accustomed to basses with metal strings. It provides a booming sound with treble more in line with a traditional electric or acoustic bass. The Kala Exotic Mahogany U-Bass comes fully equipped with a built-in tuner and Shadow pickup and EQ system. The retail price is $499.
Kala’s five-string SUB series solid body U-Bass is a short-scale, travel friendly instrument. It is equipped with Kala’s unique polyurethane strings, a Shadow active pickup system with volume control and two-band EQ, custom Hipshot licensed tuners, and Graph Tech Black Tusq self-lubricating nut. The five-string SUB comes in Sunburst, Cherryburst, red, and black finishes, with an included gig bag.
