Extremely Portable Acoustic-electric Bass

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 the 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 you're 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
Special U-Bass strings provide deep, warm, and rich acoustic bass tone

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 strings 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

Introduced on the 2013 edition of the U-Bass, Kala's custom electronics give this U-Bass a vibrant and realistic sound when you play plugged in. An active equalizer lets you tweak your tone, effortlessly meeting the needs of even the most demanding venues. What's more, Kala even equipped this U-Bass with an onboard tuner (an essential part of any musicians live kit).
