Kala Brand Music Co. takes inspiration right off of the Richter scale with the addition of the Subductive Series of Solid Body U-Basses. The Subductive Series is the latest addition to Kala’s revolutionary line of 21 inch scale bass instruments. Subductive (S-U-B for short) is inspired by the term used to describe how the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point in the Pacific Ocean, was created. Concomitantly, the U-Basses are equipped with Kala’s proprietary polyurethane strings which produce incredible bottom end that can be described only as seismic.
The Kala S-U-B Series offers an affordable alternative to Kala’s California series of USA manufactured solid body basses. Four string fretted versions are available in Sunburst, Red, and Black finishes. All Kala U-Basses are very portable and meet all airline carry on requirements. Other features include a Shadow pickup system with volume control and 2 band EQ, Custom Hipshot Tuners, and Graph Tech Black Tusq self-lubricating nut. A Custom Deluxe Logo Gig bag is included in the price of each instrument.
“The Kala Solid Body U-Bass is a true innovation in the world of bass”, according to Hutch Hutchinson, longtime bassist for Bonnie Raitt.”They are really fun to play, sound great live or in the studio, and are extremely portable.”
Kala introduced the original U-Bass design in 2009. Since then it has found its way into studios and live performances in the hands of many notable artists that include Bakithi Kumalo (Paul Simon), Hector Maldonado (Train), Jim Mayer (Jimmy Buffett), and Reggie McBride (Keb Mo). It has also been featured in the popularTV series, “Glee” and the film Just Go With It.
