Kala’s figured Solid Maple California Series uBass.
Kala plans to make available two new models of uBass in its California Series next month in its online store.
The company said it will make available two handmade acoustic/electric models – one in figured Solid Maple and one in Solid Koa. The California Series currently consists of 4-string and 5-string Solidbody models.
“These basses will represent the pinnacle of acoustic UBass tone and sound,” Kala says.
The company says it will release more information and photos soon – presumably the price and detailed specs – on the two models. Kala plans to make the models available for purchase on October 14.
As they say, watch this space.
Chris demonstrates how to put Kala metal Roundwound strings on a solidbody uBass.
If you’ve ever wondered exactly how you would go about restringing your new (or even old) solidbody uBass with Kala’s metal Roundwound strings, wonder no more. The good people at Kala – namely Chris – have released a video that will walk you through the process.
The video shows Chris restringing a 5-string Solidbody, but the same techniques apply to a 4-string as well.
For those of us who don’t have a bass tech waiting in the wings, being able to change strings ourselves is a fundamental skill to have. It’s not very complicated. So don’t be afraid to dive in and put on a new set of strings.
