Kala Brand Music has added two new models to its U.BASS line with the introduction of the Kala U.BASS 2 and Solid Acacia models. Kala has been turning upright bass literally on its side with the 20” Scale U-BASS which bassist Dave Pomeroy has dubbed “portable and powerful”. The U.BASS 2 provides an affordable alternative to the original U.BASS while the Acacia model provides another dimension with its eye catching solid Acacia Wood finish.

Each bass is available in fretted and fretless models and feature proprietary Polyurethane Strings, a passive pickup system with 4 individual piezo elements, Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and solid mahogany neck. The U.BASS 2 sports a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The Acacia model is made from all solid Acacia wood which is noted for its striking striped patterns of light and dark brown streaks. A deluxe hard case is included with the Acacia price while the U.BASS 2 comes equipped with a heavily padded gig bag.

The compact size makes the U.BASS extremely portable and able to meet all carry on standards. Its deep bass tone makes the U.BASS ideal for live and studio applications. Noted U.BASS users include Jim Mayer (Jimmy Buffet), Bakithi Kumalo (Paul Simon) and Hutch Hutchinson (Bonnie Raitt). Because of its size and ease of playing, dealers and teachers are discovering that the U.BASS makes an excellent bass for student bassists.

Kala Brand Music Co. offers over 120 models of Ukulele, the Kala U-BASS, and a complete line of Uke Crazy Ukulele accessories. Kala Brand Music Co. also distributes Aquila Strings.
