A Fantastic On-the-go Bass!Need a bass you can take anywhere? Small enough to carry onto a plane (padded gig bag and all), this 5-string Kala Solid-body U-Bass is perfect for bassists who are always on the go. Based on the huge success of the Kala's acoustic U-Bass, the Solid-body U-Bass gives you the same 21-inch-scale convenience in an electric-bass-style instrument. Despite its small format, the Solid-body U-Bass delivers the sound of a full-sized bass guitar, with bottom end to spare. That's because of the proprietary polyurethane strings Kala have developed, which allow their small-bodied instruments to produce deeply resonant tones.
But polyurethane strings aren't the only cool thing about the Kala Solid-Body U-Bass. Driving its output is a MI SI ALIGN active preamp system, complete with volume and equalization controls. The preamp features a unique, battery-free design. You can charge it in about a minute for up to eight hours of continuous playing time. This US-made instrument also sports custom HIPSHOT tuners and a self-lubricating Graph Tech Black TUSQ nut, so you'll get reliable performance that lasts for years. That kind of quality makes the Kala Solid-body U-Bass not only convenient, but extremely fun to play.

Among the very best basses I've ever played
by Randy Borst from Buffalo, NYFast, easy playing. Incredible, lively sound. Masterful, strong construction. Perfect fretting all the way up. Great looks (less bright than the photo).

You know how, with so many 5-string basses, you feel like you've gone to a new instrument when you go down and get that low B? Not with this one. You can play with a consistent sound over two octives in one position, allowing yourself to stay right on the neck where you want the sound flavor to be. And the notes sustain all along the fingerboard. If you've played the acoustic model, forget that experience, great as it is. This one is the one you want.

Music Background: I played bass guitar semiprofessionally when I was young. Now, this is for amusement. I've owned several basses. Still have my fretless Fender P. I like to play jazz standards.
Wife bought me one from Sweetwater Sound.
And she's right: it will keep me very busy. close [-]
