Mahogany UBass with metal roundwound strings. Photo: Kala UBass Facebook Page.
So I was perusing Kala’s Facebook page (as I am wont to do on many occasions) and I ran across what is probably the funnies exchange I’ve heard in a long time – at least on Facebook anyway.
Kala posted a photo of its acoustic uBass with metal roundwound strings (see photo above) and had this to say about it:
Solid Mahogany Ubass with Round Wound strings? Well that’ll sound good just about anywhere.
And then this exchange took place:
Jan: Is that a frog inlay on the headstock?
Kala UBass: A toad to be more precise.
But, wait, there’s more:
Semion: Wait, those strings are metal? Why doesn’t the instrument break?
Kala UBass: Magic.
