Kala UBASS-EBY-FS Striped Ebony UBASS® "Ninja" Road Toad Strings with Fishman Pickup
The Kala U-Bass is BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
When I first opened my online store, store.ukelikethepros.com I carried all the lines of the Kala UBass. Although they did sell pretty well I stopped stocking them.
BUT, because so many of you have asked for it I have brought back the Kala U-Bass including my favorite model, the Striped Ebony EBY-FS.
If your new to the UBASS, it is a bass the size of a baritone ukulele (20 Inch Scale Length) and tuned E-A-D-G (just like a standard bass).
I remember years ago when I first saw the Kala U-Bass, I was doing a gig and the bass player had one and I thought it was so unique and so COOL.
I loved the sound and the feel of the Road Toad Pahoehoe strings, these are the big and thick rubber ones. Although not everyone is a fan of these strings (I do also carry the EBY-FS-RW which is the same Kala U-Bass but with round wound strings), I really dig these strings. They are easy to play, easy on the hands and have a mellow and big FAT sound.
Although these Kala U-Bass EBY-FS are tuned like a traditional bass (E-A-D-G) but the small size makes they very approachable for the ukulele player or the bass player that wants a portable bass that doesn't sacrifice tone or feel.
If you're ready to take your group and your individual ukulele playing to a higher standard, then you are ready for the Kala Striped Ebony U-BASS. Fun to play when alone practicing or performing and just a whole lot more fun to add to a jam.
The beautiful Striped Ebony U-BASS has a deep brown color with reddish-brown striping. The Maple binding creates a striking contrast with the Ebony body, helping the striping stand out. The Shadow U-BASS NFX built in pickup and tuner just make the sound huge.
