Bass Player Live was Awesome!


We just got back from an inspirational weekend at Bass Player Live! Bakithi Kumalo and Abraham Laboriel put on a Kala U-Bass workshop and it was phenomenal. We visited with old friends and made some great new ones. If you are a bass player, you should try to make it next year.

Looking to Upgrade Your Kala Uke or UBass? Kala Service is Open and Ready to Help

Kala Brand Music recently announced a unique program that will allow owners to send their instruments into the Kala Custom Shop for electronics, setups, and other upgrades. 


"We have been getting a lot of people asking us for info on getting their instruments renewed, upgraded or customized," stated Kala's Lead Product Technician, Jason Villa. "Some of our dealers are setup to provide these types of services, but there are still many folks who play our instruments that don't have easy access to a skilled technician."


The Kala Custom Shop will be doing all of the upgrades and services. The Kala Custom Shop handles all of the instrument customization and regular set-ups for Kala Artists. These are the same professional technicians that set up every Kala Acoustic-Electric U-Bass and build the American-Made U-Bass Solid Bodies. 


Kala Service is currently available to Kala owners in the Continental US. Find out more about KalaService.com
