"Colossal low end & huge fun factor" Bass Player Magazine

The original, groundbreaking, 21" scale, all-solid wood U-Bass design, launched in 2008 by the Kala Brand Music Co., brings even more of the thunder in its latest incarnation, courtesy of a new under-saddle piezo pickup and onboard electronic system from Shadow.

Tuned just like a traditional bass, the U-Bass is ultra-compact, totally unique and a whole lot of fun to play.

Great Fun

This is a great little bass. It requires some getting used to with its stretchy strings but produces a BIG sound. I have had to adjust my technique and lighten my touch to get the best out of it, but it is a lot of fun.

Amazing Fun To Play...
Thursday, 25 February 2016  | 

The mahogany fretless is a serious bass in a pint-sized body.

The 'fat' strings took a short while to get used to, as did the scale length. But then... played through the (equally pint-sized) Micromark 801, I have an easily transportable set up for practice and gigs.

Brilliant!
