Get amazing bass tone and exquisite looks with Kala's Striped Ebony Fretless U-Bass. The Kala U-Bass series is a truly unique line, offering players a compact instrument that puts out huge sound. Featuring a compact 21" scale, the U-Bass has made a name for itself as an instrument small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of a plane but big enough to fill a room with full bass sound. Many players, including those here at Leaseville, have compared the tone and volume of the Kala U-Bass to that of an upright â€” big, full low end that is ideal for backing a variety of genres.
One of the standouts on this U-Bass is the gorgeous striped ebony top, back, and sides. The deep brown of the ebony is accented by reddish-brown stripes, giving it a truly mesmerizing visual appeal. Maple binding accents the entire body as well. And the fretless rosewood fingerboard is yet another visual delight that offers stellar playability and response.
Other standout appointments that add to the rich sound and stunning looks of the U-Bass Striped Ebony include a GraphTech nut and rosewood bridge that offer another layer of overall tone quality and aesthetic delight. In addition, custom Hipshot Ultralite tuning machines keep you in tune and are a nice visual enhancement to the ebony body. Finally, Fishman U-Bass EQ electronics kick out great amplified tone when you plug in. There's even a built-in tuner with Volume and Tone control â€” no more fiddling with clip-ons or tuner pedals.
