sure. i used to own a kala ubass and played it all the time. sounded great plugged in.
I'm no pro, so I couldn't comment on how they'd sound in a mix. But I think they're a great buy for a hobbyist. I have a low-end Kala Rumbler, and it only cost a bit more than a Fender Squier. The thing is LOUD when amped up, and makes enough noise to be played acoustically. I want to say it sounds like an upright -- but what would I know? I recently moved my Ubass from home to my work, so I can jam a bit during lunch when the mood strikes.
I don't see why not, if one can get by the lillipution aesthetics. Personally, I don't think I would take to it, I gotta have my arms wrapped around a jumbo ABG body and a 34" string length.
A solid 'Sometimes' from me. Usually sound great, but not really versatile. I think they're weird to play, but I know someone who swears by them to cop a faux upright tone.
Somewhat, but why would I need one for myself when my acoustic sounds like this?
If you’re Hawaiian
TBH a u-bass would suit the gigging needs of most players.
I used to gig my Kala pretty frequently. It more than paid for itself is a pseudo-acoustic group I play with... Haven't had it out too much in the past few years though.
Sound amazing plugged in. I used a SansAmp ParaDriver with mine. It really made the passive preamp come alive. Perfect for acoustic gigs and as a tiny backup to take to my DB gigs.
Sold it coz it was my fifth Fretless bass and preferred/felt I should be playing my Rob Allen Mouse (justify price, more versatile). Also swapping between four different scale length for fretlii was messing with me.
they make non-rubbery strings for them, and i imagine they would be a more versatile playing experience. unfortunately i didn't know they existed when i sold my ubass. had i tried them, i might still have it.
You post this video a lot. Is there, perhaps, a less arty version you could post instead? Preferably one that's easier to see.
What are those?
Kala U-Basses are fantastic. Addictive to play... just so much fun... they sound incredible... and yes, those big rubber strings are good things in this world!
Of course they're legit. Why wouldn't they be? They're as legit as any other instrument in the bass range.
Jazz school legit? For an electric.
Sorry, I can't find the original.
It was on my old phone and no longer exists...that I know of, that is.
Just searching now, I'm surprised I found a still shot.
