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, bolstered by an all solid-mahogany body. In fact, the U-Bass's tone comes startlingly close to that of 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 your used to a standard bass guitar.

Kala Solid-mahogany U-Bass Acoustic-electric Travel-sized Bass Guitar at a Glance:
Special U-Bass Strings provide deep, expressive, and rich acoustic bass tone
The right tonewoods bring out this U-Bass's warm and woody sound
Custom Kala electronics with active EQ make this U-Bass a real live performer
Special U-Bass Strings provide deep, expressive, 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 string 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 warm and woody sound
As an acoustic instrument, another major factor in the U-Bass's tone is the selection of tonewoods Kala chose. This U-Bass gives you the characteristically full-bodied sound of an all-solid-mahogany construction. Add to that a rosewood fingerboard and a rosewood bridge, and you get a kind of dark warmth that blossoms with every note.
