Extremely Portable Acoustic-electric Bass
The Kala U-Bass Scout is another short-scale acoustic-electric bass in their popular U-Bass line that delivers incredible tone, playability, and design. The Scout features a mahogany top, back, and sides for rich, full low-end bass tone. A mahogany neck with laurel fingerboard provides stellar response and feel as well. And with a smooth, deep Venetian cutaway, you get great access down the neck. In addition, a satin finish lets the natural mahogany really shine, and a cream binding ties the color of this fine instrument in nicely for some great stage presentation. The U-Bass Scout also fits easily into overhead compartments on planes, trains, or the backseat of your car — a feature bassists here at Sweetwater really love.
The right tonewoods bring out this U-Bass’s warm and woody sound
As an acoustic instrument, another major factor in the U-Bass Scout tone is the selection of tonewoods. This U-Bass gives you the characteristically full-bodied sound of mahogany construction. Plus, it looks simply amazing! Add to that a laurel fingerboard and laurel bridge and you get a kind of dark warmth that blossoms with every note.
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
Introduced on the 2013 edition of the U-Bass, Kala’s custom Piezo electronics give this U-Bass a vibrant and realistic sound when you play plugged in. An active equalizer lets you tweak your tone, effortlessly meeting the needs of even the most demanding venues. What’s more, Kala’s UK-500B electronics even equip this U-Bass with an onboard tuner — an essential part of any musician’s live kit.
