Was just wondering what things (basses, amps, cabs, pedals, whatever) that you bought largely on TB hype, that didn't turn out to satisfy you... those times when TB hype let you down. I'll start by saying that I have been pointed toward a number of purchases based on TB recommendations that turned out to be well worth it, things I could not find locally to try, or would never have known about except for TB and user recommendations. So, I appreciate the advice I've gotten, and naturally some things are just varying preferences. But if I were to name one thing I bought based largely on TB hype that did not in the end seem remotely worth it, in fact laughably NOT worth it, it'd be the Mahogany Kala U-bass (hollow body) (photo is stock, not mine). Mine is also fretless which adds to the lack of utility--- such a short scale makes fretless play pretty dicey, in addition to the whole thing seeming like a novelty item and not an instrument. For considerably less than I paid, maybe it'd be a fun couch-side toy... live and learn. And you? PS-- do you think I'll have a hard time selling it now that I've said it is laughable? Maybe I should have sold it first, THEN posted this thread.
