Deigned in conjunction with American Bass Guitar Legend Hutch Hutchison, The Kala UBASS is an amazing instrument. Despite its diminutive size and ultra-portable format, the Kala UBASS packs plenty of low frequency oomph.
The combination of carefully selected tonewoods and Kala’s unique polyurethane strings deliver a tone that is deep and rich with a “woody” quality that’s reminiscent of an upright double bass yet coloured with the uniquely musical UBASS tonality.
The selection of tonewoods that Kala and Hutch have chosen go a long way in determining the final sound of this little wonder. The solid Spruce top adds a touch of extra midrange definition to your tone while the Mahogany body and mahogany neck provide a warm and darker fundamental tone.
Custom Kala electronics designed and built by Shadow feature active EQ and a built in chromatic tuner. The electronics translate the tone of the UBASS beautifully making it perfect for amplified on-stage use or in the studio.

Every Kala Hutch Hutchinson UBASS goes through a rigororous checkover and setup in our workshop before we release them for sale. Don’t misunderstand us, this is a fabulous instrument but we still polish the frets, hand roll the fret ends, adjust the nut and saddle height, trim the string length, check the electronics…… you may find cheaper but you won’t buy better!
