Our little uBass is turning five years old. Where has the time gone?

Kala is celebrating the uBass’s birthday with a bunch of new models, including the Redwood Exotic you see here.

As Kala notes:

The acoustic electric models are available in finely crafted figured Hawaiian Koa or flame maple finishes. The solid body designs feature a variety of exotic wood tops that include koa, redwood, myrtle, and walnut.

The uBass is now available in more than 30 models, including acoustic-electric and solid body versions, both fretted and fretless. Kala even offers six different types of strings for the uBass, including the original Pahoehoe polyurethane strings.

As Mike Upton noted in a statement:

I was absolutely floored by the deep tone of the little bass when I first plugged it in. Five years later we are proud to say that players all over the world have experienced the same reaction.

Indeed they have Mike.
