Kala is planning to introduce at least one new uBass at this year’s NAMM show, which begins January 23. The company teased the new instrument on its Facebook page. It notes that there are a few new models in development.
The new uBass will be an acoustic/electric with a Koa top and from the photo looks to have Koa sides as well. It’ll be a Custom Shop model made in the USA, though there’s no word on availability or pricing yet.
Kala apparently is excited by its new uBass, as noted on its Facebook page:
We’re starting to make some very cool stuff right here in the U.S. of A! This Hawaiian Koa body is so beautiful on the inside, we can’t wait to show off the outside at The NAMM Show!
