Quality craftsmanship, versatility, and the head-turning low end of the California Series U•Bass has established its legacy among professionals in the bass industry. For 2016, we are very excited to offer the completely redesigned U•Bass California Series Solid Body. With the player's experience in mind, we have enhanced the look and feel to make it truly the most enjoyable small scale bass on the market.
This is where it all started…Since it was first revealed in 2008, the U•Bass has been praised for it’s “Colossal low end and huge fun factor” (Bass Player Magazine). The Acoustic-Electric U•Bass features a custom Shadow pickup and EQ with built-in tuner to dial in the sonic boom. All U•Bass’ are set-up in the USA with our proprietary Pahoehoe strings. We also have select models available with Kala Metal Round-Wound strings that can also be purchased separately on our online store.
Developed for educational and therapeutic environments, the Paddle Bass is a collaborative effort between Kala and internationally recognized music therapist Kalani Das. Designed as an easy and affordable way to add bass to any musical ensemble, the Paddle Bass offers instructors, therapists, and students an affordable, durable, easy-to-clean alternative to traditional bass options.
