The Flame Maple Fretted U•BASS® has a wood grain with curled figuring from which it takes its name. This U•BASS® also has a Mid-Century Modern asymmetrical rosette of Mahogany and Maple. Flame Maple has a focused, transparent tone with excellent note separation and a strong attack and projection. Available in a fretted model.

THE ORIGINAL UBASS EXPLAINED - THE BASS THAT LAUNCHED HUNDREDS OF CHEAP KNOCKOFF COPIES
The U•BASS® came thumping and flying onto the scene in 2009, taking the bass world for a spin. Musicians of all kinds began taking to the instrument, and some of the most acclaimed names in bass started incorporating it into their rigs and their live sets. 

WHAT MAKES THE U•BASS® SPECIAL?
More than anything else, bassists tend to look for superb low end and a rich tone in the instruments they play. Given their need to be extremely versatile and complementary players within an ensemble, we know that many bassists are constantly looking for instruments that can unlock a brand new feel and a new sound for their playing.

The U•BASS® is a fantastic example of a bass with a tone, feel, and overall character that is quite unlike anything else on the market. Known also as the original "ukulele bass," the U•BASS® combines unique, light tension bass strings with a small body size and a powerful pickup to produce a simply massive bass tone. The U•BASS® offers its own uniquely deep, booming, and round tone, but is well known for its ability, with a little tweaking, to closely replicate the sound of an upright bass.

This is significant because a variety of genres and styles available to non-upright bass players open up when the U•BASS® is deployed, on-stage or in the studio. Jazz, Folk, and Country players love the U•BASS® for its deep, clear, upright tone. On the contrary, Funk, R&B, Hip-Hop, and Soul players love it for its huge, clean, low end!

WHAT IS A U•BASS®?
The U•BASS® has the scale length of a standard baritone ukulele and, needless to say is significantly shorter than the typical electric bass guitar. This leads to ultra-fast access up and down the fretboard that would be more difficult to achieve on a standard-size bass, let alone an upright bass.

The Road Toad Pahoehoe U•BASS® Strings come standard on many U•BASS® models: a polyurethane blend with a bouncy, rubbery feel that adds to the unique tone and experience. If traditional strings are more your style, Kala offers a Round Wound U•BASS® String Set that will give you that familiar traditional electric bass string feel. Most recently, Kala released the Flatwound U•BASS® String Set, unlocking a whole new world of tones for our players.

IS THE U•BASS® PORTABLE?
Whether you’re jamming on an Acoustic-Electric U•BASS® or a California U•BASS®, there’s no denying the convenience of the size of this instrument. You can take it as a carry-on at the airport when you travel and its lightweight body makes it perfect for grab-and-go practice sessions and impromptu jams. The U•BASS® is designed to fit right into your rig, so when you get to that song that sounds just right on the Kala U•BASS®, swapping out your instruments is as easy and seamless as any other electric bass.
