Hutch Hutchinson, Abraham Laboriel, Bakithi Kumalo and Steve Bailey jamming at the Kala uBass Day.

Wow! Just, Wow!

This is what’s possible with a uBass in the hands of a master. And in this case, the uBass is in the hands of not one, but three, masters.

Check out this video from last month’s Kala uBass Day at the Berklee College of Music. Here, Hutch Hutchinson, Abraham Laboriel, Bakithi Kumalo and Steve Bailey jamming together with three uBasses and a Warwick six-string bass.

It’ll blow you away.

Get Thee to Berklee

If you’re anywhere within shouting distance of Boston on December 7, get on over to the Berklee Performance Center at 1:00 pm for the U-Bass Summit.

Steve Bailey, the bass chair at Berklee College of Music, has invited three of the world’s greatest bass players (who also happen to be Kala uBass endorsers) – Abe Laboriel (Herbie Hancock, Madonna, Michael Jackson), Bathiki Kumalo (Paul Simon), and Hutch Hutchinson (Bonnie Rait, Willie Nelson) – to present a workshop on the uBass. The event is open to the public and will run from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

And the best part is, it’s free.
