    Great Bass!

    Great bass for messing around on the couch or on the porch. You could even gig with it. Plays and sounds great. I have the fretless version and it has a standup type sound, which I love. However, you're definitely going to need an amp if you want to play with anyone, even acoustic. But I find that to be the case for most acoustic basses. I should also say that the Sweetwater customer service was excellent as well.

    Killer sound from this little bass

    This thing has a shocking amount of bottom. It will take a bit of practice to get used to the small scale and rubber strings, but it plays really well. The addition of the tone controls and built-in tuner are a welcome improvement. I was shocked at how loud it can get unplugged. You wouldn't want to play with others without an amp, but it's totally fine for plucking away on the couch or office.

    U bass fretless

    Great help from staff at Sweetwater.
    Fretless is fast and very big sound.
    It's all that I wanted in a bass.

    Fretless uBass

    Love the Kala UBass. Plays awesome. Friends are blown away by the size and the rich sound that it produces when plugged in.
    Wish the case was a bit more beaffy. Looking for a better case that a friend of mine got w his. I would be worried to travel w the soft case that I received w mine. Read the product reviews and product descriptions but most or all just mentioned travel gig bag. No big discription on weather it was a full soft case or semi hard case.
    Other than that really enjoy playing it. Been having so much fun with it, I haven't really played my other bass guitars in a while since I've gotten it.
    Thanks for carrying the Kala brand.

    Cool Bass

    Neat little bass ! Lots of fun to Jam with ...It has great low and top end for such a small instrument .. You definitely need the built in tuner because the strings stretch so much .... Its a fun travel bass ..Get yourself a little 10-15 watt amp and go at it !
