Unless you’re in a Jimi Hendrix tribute band, you probably do not welcome feedback while you are playing. But if you are plagued by feedback while jamming out on your uBass, Kala has got you covered. Or, more precisely, your uBass’s soundhole covered.
Enter the Kala Feedback Freezer. What’s a Feedback Freezer, you ask? Basically it’s a plastic cap you snap into the soundhole of your acoustic/electric uBass that dramatically reduces the instruments ability to feed back. Just snap the Feedback Freezer into any uBass with a 3″ soundhole, and off you go. It does not require any modifications to your uBass.
The Feedback Freezer won’t totally eliminate feedback, but it will dramatically reduce it, as noted in THIS VIDEO by Mike Upton of Kala.
You can pick one up from your favorite retailer that stocks Kala accessories, or through the Kala Web Store for $9.99. Some online retailers list the Feedback Freezer at $7.99.
So, if you’re looking to reduce the amount of unwanted noise your uBass makes in a band situation, go get yourself one of these for each of your A/E uBasses.
