Don’t you love when someone revisits a weird idea from the past — and makes it even weirder?
I got a new bass last week, right before I left for the NAMM show. I finally had a chance to try it out yesterday. I think I’m in love. View the incriminating evidence in this brief video:
Usually I’d rather scoop the catbox than play through a piezo pickup. Yet I dig the way the piezo’s stringy/slappy highs helps bass lines slice through a mix. You can hear the line loud and clear, even when I slather on the loud guitars.
Kala makes several U-Bass models — this is the fancy mahogany one. It lists for around $600 US, and sells cheaper.
