KALA Bakithi Kumalo Signature Mahogany Acoustic-Electric U-Bass w/Case - UBASS
Bakithi Kumalo has been a proud endorsee of the Kala U•BASS for over a decade. Longtime collaborator and bassist for Paul Simon, Bakithi’s world-renowned work for 1985’s Graceland in South Africa launched his lifelong career as bassist, studio musician, and composer. As a new milestone, Bakithi and Kala have designed his very own Signature Acoustic-Electric U•BASS to help share his unique sound and philosophy as a bassist with players of any level.
With this Signature U•BASS®, Kala & Bakithi set out to create the perfect U•BASS introduction for new and experienced bass players alike. This fretted bass pairs a Natural Mahogany build with the Kala Round Wound U•BASS Strings for a clear and confident tone. Personal touches include Bakithi’s signature black pickguard and custom Zulu shield headstock artwork, hand-drawn by Bakithi’s own album cover artist, Gus Liberdade.
Bakithi’s Signature U•BASS includes a Custom Gig-bag and access to free online companion lessons and bass line breakdowns specifically for the U•BASS, featuring Bakithi and some of his most celebrated bass lines.
