    Captured in the NAMM basement. The company's name is Qingdao Sambong, or some such. Purveyors of fine mega-brands such as Castle and Champ bass strings.

    I just thought the sign was funny :)

    Weird. I saw this on another site, but it had nothing to do with bass or music.

    Yeah, that was bizarre! I have to consider that what they meant to say wasn't quite what they said. ;)

    A few years ago at NAMM was a Chinese company that had catalogs with "PUBIC ADDRESS SYSTEMS" printed on the front cover. That would be amazing technology. ;)

    We got some squid samples 2 years ago in the office.

    Instead of Squid Rings, it was Squid Wings.
    The were supposed to go to Carrabba's.

    Needless to say, that Fedex didn't go. We had some fun
    with that printing error.

    Translation errors are great. Next time I'm in San Francisco's Chinatown, I'll get a photo of the "Lucky Phat Ho" restaurant and post it. There's tons more where that came from, too.
     
  8. The best of both worlds, no?
