Kala U Bass Spalted Maple

The body of the Kala U-Bass Fretted bass ukulele has been made entirely from Spalted Maple. The complex patterning is caused by a natural fungus in the maple, hence 'spalted', and hence the unique finish of every example of this instrument. Black binding has been added to contrast with the naturally light wood while the darker mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard are just as satisfying. A cutaway has been integrated into the body shape to allow easy access to the highest frets, and when plugged in, the active internal pickup delivers faithful amplified sound. This bass ukulele comes complete with a deluxe gig bag.

Kala U Bass Bamboo

This bass ukulele has a slightly brighter voicing acoustically than Kala's other recent offerings. It's vibrant and punchy and works fantastically with both the factory black polyurethane strings or the Kala wound strings if you want to be a bit more of a rocker.

Bamboo is the most sustainable choice for musical instruments. Highly renewable, bamboo regenerates quickly without being replanted—sometimes growing up to three feet per day! The straight grain of this “grass” is actually stronger than most hardwoods.

It is beautifully natural-looking with clean lines and bamboo from top to bottom—from the headstock to the fretboard to the saddle. Bamboo provides a bright tone with great volume, harmonics, projection and sustain. The strength of bamboo makes for an extremely durable and resilient U•BASS.

Kala U Bass Mahogany

This unique product is the result of a collaborative effort between Kala Ukulele and Road Toad Music. It has a 20 inch scale with 16 frets. Unlike strings you may have seen in the past, the polyurethane strings have a great feel, with really nice tension, and are a true pleasure to play. This instrument makes a unique sound that falls somewhere between an upright bass and a standard electric bass. It sports Hipshot tuners and a passive piezo system. Each string is compensated in length for proper intonation and has its own custom "shadow" piezo system for a perfectly balanced sound. It has a solid Mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard. This is the instrument for someone who is looking for something a little different that is also great fun to play. It comes in it's own custom hard foam case (that meets carry on standards for aviation etc)

Kala U Bass Hipshot Ultralight Tuners

Thundergut® is a special very elastic and dense material developed by us in our headquarter that assure superior performances over the common polyuretane and silicon rubber bass strings available in the market. Thundergut® assure fast and stable intonation; no sweet finger's slip on the strings. These are an off white colour.

The new Silver Rumbler strings are made exclusively for Kala by Aquila; they have a little bit more tension than the classic UBASS strings. They use a special "Nylgut" compound to give them increased density and stability - as well as, they claim, the ability to resonate tone at very low frequencies. They reportedly have a clearer tone and solid low end - and are significantly different than the Kala Pahoehoe U-Bass set. This is the "OEM" string that comes stock on the Rumbler U-Bass.


Kala Flatwound Strings by Galli

Chrome steel wrapped around a nylon core, the U•BASS® Flatwound 4-String Set by Gallistrings enables fast and stable intonation, bringing a warmth and consistency to your U•BASS like never before.

These high-tension U•BASS strings offer a timbre and maneuverability akin to the double bass. Smooth to the touch, the chrome flatwound tape allows your fingers to glide around the fretboard and helps protect the neck from wear and tear—perfect for any acoustic fretted or fretless U•BASS.


Material: Flatwound Chrome Steel / Nylon Core

Gauges: .060 (1.52 mm), .080 (2.03 mm), .100 (2.54 mm), .130 (3.30 mm)


The Thunder Reds sets: a unique look and a strong, consistent sound.

Until now, it was necessary to increase a string’s gauge to reach lower frequencies. But increasing the string’s diameter also increases internal dampening. That makes the string less bright, less responsive and more muffled:

the thicker the string, the duller the sound.

Our revolutionary new approach —never introduced before us— changes the specific weight of the material, increasing it progressively to leave the gauge unchanged.
