Kala is updating its uBass Rumbler for 2014, adding new electronics and introducing a fretless version.
As the company notes:
For 2014 we are upgrading the Rumbler Electronics to the Shadow Nano-Flex pickup and preamp system that has been custom designed for the U-Bass.
That’s the same electronics used in Kala’s imported acoustic/electric models.
And if that weren’t enough, Kala noted it had a pretty successful Musikmesse show this year.
While we were at Musikmesse, U-BASS was awarded a second consecutive M.I.P.A. Award
The M.I.P.A. (Musikmesse International Press Award) is juried by more than 100 International music publications. Kala was awarded the honor for 2014 in the Acoustic Bass category.
