Shadow electronics help you shape the sound to give you warm lows and perfect mids and highs.

    Comments about Kala Ka-Ubass-Em-Fs Exotic Mahogany Acoustic-Electric U-Bass With Gig:

    The Kala UBass is perfect for the travelling bass player. Compact, lightweight &, portable. The string being nylon have a sweet mellow tone plugged or unplugged. The overall quality is exceptionally high for a travel oriented instrument. The shadow pickup is the perfect complement to the tone woods to bring out the natural voice of the instrument. The included gig bag is the icing on the cake.

      Vesatile and Easy to Play!

      Comments about Kala Ka-Ubass-Em-Fs Exotic Mahogany Acoustic-Electric U-Bass With Gig:

      This is a great item for any bassist 'on the go', being short-scale and lightweight. The mahogany body is visually appealing and assists in the beautiful tone that is produced. The short-scale can take some time to get used to but it is well worth the effort to have an affordable, attractive, sweet-sounding acoustic electric. It also comes with a gig bag, which is always a bonus!

        Comments about Kala Ka-Ubass-Em-Fs Exotic Mahogany Acoustic-Electric U-Bass With Gig:

        The U-Bass is a whole new instrument that is pure fun. It's super compact which makes it great for travel and the sound is huge! The sound is incredible from such a small instrument. It sounds so deep and full just like an upright bass and the strings are easy on the fingers. As a bass player, this instrument is irresistible and hard to put down. Non bass players will love it too as it makes bass playing accessible to smaller hands and is addicting to play. The built in electronics sound great and makes this instrument useful in a variety of situations. Don't hesitate, pick up a new instrument I'm sure you'll love!

        Comments about Kala Ka-Ubass-Em-Fs Exotic Mahogany Acoustic-Electric U-Bass With Gig:

        As an amature player I was looking for a hollow base mostly for a lighter weight to help out my bad back and found this. The short scale is easier to get use to than I was expecting. It weighs practically nothing and the small size make it much easier to play sitting down. Tone is awesome! (I can barely stand the sound of my old solid body bass now.) I play through an old ashdown combo amp with no eq and I think the tone is about perfect with just a slight hint of a dog house bass.
