Godzilla, A Massive 24-String Bass Guitar

May 17, 2017


These are a couple videos of Christopher "C3" Cardone of Kalium Strings exhibiting and playing Godzilla, a massive 24-string bass guitar built to showcase the different guitar strings Kalium produces. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly, that I wish I knew how to shred the bass. But nooooo, I'm not allowed to shred the bass because metal is the devil's music, I'm only allowed to shred cheese whenever my mom makes lasagna. Although, to my credit, I usually do end up shredding my knuckles too, and blood is pretty metal. And not just because it tastes like iron, but it does, and I like it. Especially in my lasagna. *watching family spit up their dinner* Did anybody find a Band-Aid?

Keep going for the videos.

Thanks to Craig, who wants both his arms replaced with 24-string bass guitars. Me? I want one arm replaced with a kegerator, and the other with a beautiful woman.

    I'm utterly amazed that this thing is playable despite being so damn wide... Sort of like my last girlfriend...

    It sort of reminds me of a steel guitar or sitar or hammer dulcimer or... I guess there's lots of stringed instruments that have lots of strings.

    This is my best buddy. We throw Bass Bash shows in Denver every summer.

    No, he's my best buddy and every year we take a trip to the Caribbean and his playing attracts dolphins. We then swim and have beers.

    That's cool. For those that might not know, there's an instrument that's been around for some time called The Stick. Tony Levin has popularized it but it's in songs as old as Gowan's Strange Animal from the crazy 80s. It's got a lot of strings (not as many as this) and you typically play it by hammering off the strings with both hands. It's remarkable sounding, especially when played by a really good musician like Levin or the guy that invented it.

    I know these as "war guitars".

    I've always like guitar players in particular. Wonder what Prince 🎸would have thought of this?

  • sizzlepants

    Based on what I've read about Prince and his attitude towards the instrument he probably would have called it excessive and picked up that extra sweet natural wood grain J-bass looking thing from the background of the first clip.

    There's always a bigger bass...
