A Brief Timeline of the uBass


A selection of Kala uBasses at Bass Player Live 2017.

The Kala uBass Blog just published a brief timeline of the history of the uBass.

It starts in 2007 when Mike Upton of Kala and Owen Holt of Road Toad Music meet and goes to 2018 and Beyond.

Check it out HERE.


More Solidbody Goodness

As if my previous post about Kala’s solidbody uBass wasn’t enough to get your UAS (ukulele acquisition syndrome) churning, here’s a photo of Owen Holt of Road Toad Music–the man who designed the Kala uBass–at Summer 2010 NAMM, showing off a 5-string Solidbody uBass.

This one is a “Jazz” style in Tenor size. And it’s a singlecut!

It looks pretty cool dressed in Dreads, doesn’t it?

Hopefully we’ll see this one available for purchase soon.
