Carlson was instrumental in the introduction of the Kala uBass. No stranger to the bass market, Carlson also worked at SWR Engineering Inc. and ACE Products Group.
Phil Jones, head of Phil Joes Bass, said,“Rick brings a proven industry track record along with a pedigree in the bass world that fits perfectly with our plans for the future and the expansion of our brand.
Carlson said he is happy to work with Phil Jones, whom he noted creates bass amp designs that “are at the cutting edge of engineering in bass amplification.”

Colin D’Cruz, a musician based in India, just posted a neat little song he wrote about his Kala uBass. The song, entitled “I Love My Kala Bass!” can be heard here at his ReverbNation page, along with some of his other work. It’s sung to the tune of “All About That Bass.”
By a significant margin, with 45 votes cast, you have voted for us to expand coverage to include non-Kala brand uBasses. The poll closed at 40 votes Yes and 5 votes No. That breaks down to nearly 90% of respondents voting Yes.
So there you have it folks. Democracy in action.
Look for the new and improved uBass Appreciation Society real soon.
For almost seven years, we’ve been writing about the awesome Kala uBass. We started this blog in 2010 because the uBass rocks, and it was unique at the time. If you wanted an affordable little bass based on a ukulele, there wasn’t much choice back then.
But that’s changed. Today, Kala has plenty of competition in the uBass field.
So that’s why I’d like your feedback on whether or not we should expand our coverage to include non-Kala brand uBasses, very short scale travel basses and similar instruments like the Kala Paddle bass. We’ll still provide coverage of Kala and its uBass models, but we think there might be an appetite for coverage of non-Kala products as well. This will not only give us other brands to write about, but also compare how the competition fares against Kala.
Our main focus will still be on the Kala uBass, but we’ll also let you know about those instruments that are trying to compete head-to-head with them.
So we’d like to hear from you. Send us a comment about whether or not you think expanded coverage is a good idea, or if you’d rather keep things the way they are.
Or use the poll above and vote for how you want us to proceed. The poll will be live for a week.
So vote early and vote often. (Actually you can only vote once, just like in real life.)
