Kala UBASS EBY FS Striped Ebony Acoustic-Electric
Compact Acoustic-electric Bass with Huge Tone
Get amazing bass tone and exquisite looks with the Kala U-Bass EBY-FS Striped Ebony Acoustic-Electric. 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 210 Music Row, have compared the tone and volume of the Kala U-Bass to that of an upright — big, full low end that is ideal for backing a variety of genres.
Beautiful tonewoods and tone
The Kala U-Bass EBY-FS Striped Ebony Acoustic-Electric has 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 walnut fingerboard is yet another visual delight that offers stellar playability and response.
Special strings, special sound
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 oomph, which resonates with a deep, rich, and wooden quality that’s reminiscent of the coveted upright sound yet colored with a uniquely musical U-Bass quality all its own.
Standout appointments and standout tone
Other standout appointments that add to the rich sound and stunning looks of the U-Bass Striped Ebony include a GraphTech nut and walnut 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, Shadow U-Bass NFX electronics kick out great amplified tone when you plug in. There’s even a built-in tuner with Volume and Tone control — no more fiddling with clip-ons or tuner pedals.
