The Kinky Stick: A Missed Opportunity.

What Exactly is a Kinky Stick?

Probably what we should have named The Chromatic Endpin. 

Let me explain. 

Over on kontrabassblog.de, Jonas wrote a great article about angled endpins and was cool enough to include The Chromatic Endpin in his breakdown of non-invasive options. 

Except. 

The article is in German. While Google translate does a pretty good job translating, it yields this gem of sentence:

"During a workshop with Francois Rabbath, I first met a kinky stick about 25 years ago."

I almost spit out my coffee when I read it. Too funny. 

But seriously, go check out the article here:

Jonas has some good insights and explaination, even if you don't speak German and need to read it through Google Translate like me.
