    The most logical explanation I can come up with is that if I ever needed a bass to play at a gig that's in a bathroom, this would be good because it would match the sink and toilet.

    My friend has one just like that!!
    I don't know the purpose. The sound is really horrible. I guess the one good thing about it is that it's pretty much indestructible. You can stand on it and play it. It's a novelty thing really.

    It must be pretty bad; the guy playing the cajon is pretending to not know the bassist.

    I think there was a Retro-Rama article about a similar bass in BP not too long ago; I'd look for it but I'm too lazy right now. I think it said they came about from WWI when they needed to make a good durable instrument that they could send overseas.

  10. The purpose of these basses is to make my bass actually look good!
     
  11. Hahahaha! I play cajon, I made mine out of materials I had. I'd pay more for my cajon than that thing. Looks like it got lost at an NHS clinic!!!
