Today is Kala uBass player and uBass Artist Nik West‘s birthday.

Let’s all wish her a wonderful birthday uBass style.


Happy Birthday to Us


Happy 7th Birthday to Us!


Today is our Birthday!

Today, we begin our seventh year of publishing.

There have been some changes over the years and I’m sure they will be plenty more as the years roll on.

Hopefully we’ll still be here seven years from now, bringing you the best of the uBass and small, portable travel instruments.

And hopefully you’ll still be with us too.

Happy Birthday To Us!

The uBass Appreciation Society is Celebrating its Sixth Birthday Today.


Today is August 23 and it’s our Sixth Birthday.

On this day in 2010, the uBass Appreciation Society sprang to life, celebrating everything that is the Kala uBass. As with our first post, our singular focus was then, and still continues to be, the uBass that Kala brought into this world in 2007.

So sit back, pop a cold beverage, get out your uBass and read a few of our previous posts to celebrate our birthday. Click on any month in the Archives links to the right and relive the past of the uBass.

Not to toot our own horn or anything…well, OK, to toot our own horn…We’ve seen our traffic steadily increase over the past six years. We’re not talking Google-size traffic or anything, but it’s pretty good for a little ad-free blog covering a very narrow subject area.

WordPress tells us that in the past six years we’ve had more than 55,000 visitors and more than 182,000 views of our 254 posts. So far we’ve got 31 followers (with a number of them with us for five years). And that’s to say nothing of the people who pop in and out at various times.

I’d just like to say thank you to everyone for your loyalty. Keep reading. And we’ll keep writing.

Happy Birthday Nik West

Happy Happy Birthday Bass


It was five years ago today – August 23, 2010 – when it all began. Today, the uBass Appreciation Society turns five years old.

For the past five years we’ve been covering the wonderful little bass known as the Kala uBass (and its competitors on occasion) and we have no plans to stop anytime soon. As long as Kala keeps making the uBass and selling them, we’ll be here to let you know what’s up.

It’s been fun these past five years. And we look forward to seeing how the uBass evolves in the coming years.

During the past five years we’ve posted 228 posts. Who knows how many we’ll have in the next five years. Stay tuned to find out.

If you weren’t around in the beginning and are curious to see how it all began, check out our first post HERE.
