Pulling inspiration from the original California Series U•BASS®, this innovative short-scale bass is a whole new take on the U•BASS®. Kala’s Solid Body U•BASS® features a sleek off-set body shape which is contoured for balance and comfort. The 22 pocketed frets and 23.5" scale give you plenty of room to maneuver around yet it is still compact enough to easily travel with. The tone is thick and meaty thanks to the classic passive humbucker pickup. Comes with a Logo Gig Bag.

    Excellent 5-String U-Bass

    I am really pleased with my 5-string. It looks and plays great. Pleased with the after sales when I contacted Kala about a screw which needed tightening. It 's also good to receive a quality gig-bag also.

    Decent sonics for its size

    The bass is small for a five-string, hence good for travel. It sounds full-scale for its size and has a decent B string that is not a thud. The string spacing is narrower than most basses I have played and sometimes I grapple with complex material, especially if I do not use the B string. However, I still have my Rumbler from 2014 when I need only four strings. Kala did a grand job getting playable sonics from a downsized 5-string instrument with a punchy moderate-output passive magnetic pickup. Without comparison the 5-string solid body is a clear winner. Nevertheless, compared to some of the larger basses, the Kala has somewhat less definition and a hint of mud.
