I still don’t get how they sell ukes under “Electronics”, but apart from that this is a nice woot. Kala’s a legit brand.
Electronics Woot! - What voltage does this use, or are there batteries needed?
If I stick my finger in an AC outlet while holding this thing, does that make it Electronics?
Words no longer have meaning…
Many Great Reviews
Curse you InFrom! I was obviously a victim of satellite delay in my posting speed.
Just want to add that while those prior sales were $10 more and included more accessories, this deal comes with some decent strings.
Ha! You’ll need a Wayback Machine to get the better of me! http://electronics.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=6455487
This deal does come with some “strings attached”…
Yep, it’s not an easy fit in any of those categories. Maybe wine? Because I’m more apt to grab my uke and start strumming after enjoying a fine wine.woot offering?
ps thanks for tidying up over there.
I was looking around at other sites. Overstock has them under Food & Gifts. Huh?
If you think about department stores, musical instruments were usually located in/near the electronics section.
Well, that’s true. Those were the days! I was just in Macy’s recently – it wasn’t that long ago they still sold TVs, but it’s hard to imagine that now. Who would buy a TV in Macy’s? Times have changed.
But yeah, in the absence of a better category, I suppose Electronics makes sense. You’ll never see the end of people taking exception to it, I’m afraid.
I enjoy the fun posts. No worries.
These are in the electronics section because as you strum, you could build up some static electricity, which is, as you know, an excess of electrons.
It’s in the electronic section because the resistance provided by your fingers on the frets charges up the capacity for the instrument to rock some killer chords. Strum on, tau.
And everyone EE major knows, tau = Resistance * Capacitance = 1/2pif where f = cutoff frequency. And obviously frequency is involved in the sinusoidal sound waves outputted by the instrument.
I have this uke, and it is of very good quality and the synthetic cat-gut strings come standard on them. It will take about 1-2 weeks for the strings to stabilize; until then you’ll need to keep tuning them before you play.
