Plastic cult classic - fallen into the water ...

21.12.2016
When the retro cult classic came to the market this year, the community of course made a great Traraa.
The plastic ukulele was created as a tribute to the plastic classic of the 50s and 60s, the Macaferri ukulele.

Kala also tried to give the whole thing a fresh touch.

And oh, what followed the followers and tore around the replica and sung to the Uke:

How great he looks ...
And in how many colors it comes from ...
And how practical it is ...
And how waterproof and weatherproof ...
And with Acquila strings ...
And available transparently ...
And how stylish ...
And anyway...
And at all, and not everything ... - the Waterman.

The list of the arguments attracts of course and one thinks - I will probably not around the part one to try out.

And excellence à la Thomann arrived home punctually one-and-a-half days later.

The first kite - the Kala Cardboard on which Kala has made the effort to list the inspiring history of the Waterman Ukulele and the tremendous merits and benefits of Waterman ... You'll immediately get the epic feeling of keeping a story-laden instrument in your hand, Over which, in fifty years, we will again be excited.

And then the ukulele still comes in this sweet handy fabric bag and worked much more compactly than my other soprano ukulele.

But then the problem began. Firstly I had chosen the Waterman, which was marked as "Glows in the Dark". Unfortunately no, the lettering is missing and the ability to light up in the dark too.

Okay, but the color was still nice.
Also the processing looked neat. Thanks to research, I knew that the plastic is relatively clever, so that the stability of the instrument is assured and the neck does not deform.
And even for so-called "sound authenticity" one has supposedly made the selection of the material for casting, so that the plastic should be similar to a wooden sound as possible.

Sounds so far all right - until you call the ukulele ...

Firstly, I have been looking for the stability of the voices for days - was apparently not supplied by Kala ... The mechanics are hopelessly useless. Not even rust can the things, whereby the possibly still the only recognizable advantage on them would be .. But keeping the mood is absolutely not their strength. Not one after days of playing.

If you wanted now you could retrofit Friction Tuning Pegs, from Grover for 15.90 or so. They would also fit into the head plate thanks to the relatively large head without the vocal vertebrae getting in the way. But there is also the next optical problem - the head plate is simply disproportionate ... disproportionately large compared to the small corpus. Just looks strange.

But back to the sound ... I think Kala has made the ukulele water-proof, because it sounds better or more fun under the water or with water than in the air.
The spectrum of intonation over highs and lows is simply sad - the small plastic dulls and buzzes so loudly at the depths that the first side (a / h-string) completely sinks into the vibrating booming.
The whole situation is even worse, because no matter how much you do, the uneven resonance of the sounds makes the Ukulele seem completely out of tune.
I suspect that the purity of the Bund was not really respected, although the uniform casting of the plastic handleboard would actually ensure uniformity, so that they are all uniform. The so-called Nullte-Bundstäbchen does not help.

By the way, the chopsticks are somehow only thinly thinned with silvery varnish or something like that and after 10 minutes of play the lacquer starts to dissolve and lose itself with the hum in the sounding spheres.

Well, for 45 euros you could say here - clear, is a nice fun article ... But NO, because he is no fun. Until new strings are on it and proper voice vertebra have already passed at least 20 euros and then the plastic is still too soft and the sound body together with resonance unbalanced. And for the 65 euros you can buy a Soprano Harley Benton Kahuna CLU 30S or 32S.

That is then made of wood, but quite frankly, how urgent is it in the bathtub or shower under the shower on the club?

All this considered, she swims back to Thomann after falling back into the water. Sorry.
