I’m selling my left-handed Kala uBass. Bought in 2011. Only got around to playing it a few times. It's a cool instrument, but as a tenor banjo player w/ no bass experience I naively underestimated the skill required to play bass properly. So I’m willing to let it go for $350. Includes gig bag! If interested please contact me.
The Kala uBass is a 20" scale uke that sounds like an upright acoustic bass! It was designed by Owen Holt of Road Toad Music. It is tuned in 4ths (EADG) just like a regular bass. It is strung with long-lasting polyurethane Pahoehoe strings. As an alternative, Aquila makes Thundergut bass strings that are supposed to work well on the uBass.
