Good uke with some issues

27.09.2016
I have used this highly portable and tiny bass at shows where the stage is not big enough for an upright or even a electric bass. Great fun all the way.

The bass came with som small problems. First of all the pickup in the bridge didn?t repond to the E-string. Output was way lower than the other strings. After dismountig, checking and some wiggeling it sounded better. Note that the bridge is highly sensitive, and the slightest wiggle might affect the output.

Second, the E-string itself was dead. The black Pahoehoe string may have been damaged in some way. Changed to Aquila thunder reds, And that solved the problem (Thanks, Thomann!)

Now that all the issues are solved, the U Bass is in fine condition and plays like butter. Nice craftmanship and a good preamp. Very silent. Intonation is good. Takes some time to get used to the short neck.

Very fun and highly playable instrument which is so easy to carry around. Some think this is som kind of toy... Think again! This is a bass as good as any. This is a "must have" instrument.

Great bass with an extremely high spa factor

Peter181, 02.09.2014
It is nice that for the instrument a quite high-quality and for the protection of the bass completely sufficient Gigbag is supplied (kindly with 'U-Bass' inscription).

Processing: My Kala bass is processed extremely high quality, it is not even small defects recognizable. The solid spruce top is very evenly grained and looks better for my taste than mahogany. All components are coordinated and fit the short scale, such as the mechanics.

Playability: Compared to the 34-inch five-string, the neck is quite short and the distances z. B. From the 1st to the 3rd fret small. But that also has its appeal, because runs that are difficult to realize on a normal bass are no problem on the U-Bass. With me, the settling time was very short and I was able to take the bass right after delivery to the band rehearsal. That was the wonder because big, but that has more to do with the sound.

Sound: Simply great, at least amplified. Compared to an acoustic bass, there are no annoying sliding noises on the strings. Depending on the playing style, the small U-bass can really sound quite like double bass. And there is also the built-in shadow preamp with tuner. The only has a volume control and a sound panel. But that's enough. Of course, the U-Bass is not amplified due to the design and the Gummisaiten not so loud over but jamming to CDs or so it is enough.

At some point, the first string change will be interesting, because the special strings react differently. For me, they stretched enough after about a week, so I reduced the windings on the tuners by shortening the strings, as recommended by Kala, and since then, the strings are all pitch-stable. My e-string is not, as criticized in other reviews, quieter than the other strings. The cover on the back of the body, through which the strings can be changed, holds with magnets bombproof. Only the rubber caps of the two minipotis I've lost many times (and luckily found again) but you do not necessarily need.

From me a clear buy recommendation, great part with the best workmanship from China and Supersound. And the handling - the absolute fun part.
