A Value-packed, No-frills A/E Uke Bass
The Kala U-Bass Nomad is a value-packed, no-frills acoustic-electric ukulele bass that’s begging for you to pick it up and play it. The Nomad features all-mahogany construction, serving up a tonal cocktail of resonance, warmth, and sustain, and providing eye-popping good looks. And no matter where you’re playing — around the campfire, busking in the streets, or just plunking away in a hotel room — this uke bass’s compact size and 20.8-inch scale ensure that you can take it anywhere with zero fuss. Want to take this diminutive acoustic instrument onstage? No problem. Its top-notch electronics deliver a room-filling sound that’s sure to please. The Kala U-Bass Nomad includes a Graph Tech NuBone nut, custom die-cast tuners, and an attractive satin finish.
The right tonewoods bring out this U-Bass’s warm and woody sound
As an acoustic instrument, a major factor in the U-Bass Nomad’s tone is the selection of tonewoods Kala chose. This U-Bass gives you the characteristically full-bodied sound of mahogany construction. Plus, it looks simply amazing! Add to that a rosewood fingerboard and a rosewood bridge, and you get a kind of dark warmth that blossoms with every note. At Sweetwater, we really dig the sound of this acoustic-electric ukulele bass.
Special strings, special sound
The secret behind the big sound of the Kala U-Bass is almost as cool as its small, ultra-portable format. It comes from the combination of the right tonewoods and Aquila’s Thunderblack polyurethane strings. These lightweight, large-diameter strings provide plenty of low-frequency oomph, which resonates with a deep, rich, and wooden quality that’s reminiscent of the coveted upright sound yet colored with a uniquely musical U-Bass quality all its own.
Custom Kala electronics with active EQ make this U-Bass a real live performer
Kala’s custom electronics give this U-Bass a vibrant and realistic sound when you play plugged in. An active equalizer makes tweaking your tone a piece of cake, effortlessly meeting the needs of even the most demanding venues. What’s more, Kala even equipped this U-Bass with an onboard tuner — an essential part of any musician’s live kit.
