Kala uBass Specs

If you’ve been looking to pick up a uBass (and you really should, they’re awesome) but were unsure of the differences between the various models, wonder no more.

According to the Kala Brand Music Co., the uBass is “truly a ground breaking short scale (20″) bass that produces the same pitches as a standard bass instrument and is tuned in traditional bass tuning, EADG. Available in fretted and fretless models, the U-BASS is strung with proprietary polyurethane strings that incorporate a great bass feel, with balanced tension; they are a true pleasure to play.”
