It was mentioned here http://bassoutpost.com/index.php?topic=10538.0

I had never heard of the brand before but he has a website and seems to have a following
http://www.krappyguitars.com/punkbass.html

Somebody posted a pic of one of his Hofner-looking 2-strings here a couple of years back without any identification.

There's another Krappy for sale on eBay if you're interested ;-)

A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

I met the owner/operator of Krappy a couple years back at a small festival in Raleigh where I was running sound.
Very nice guy.

BTW, I made that bass sound like it had 3-strings!
Have Fun.  Be Nice.  Mean People Suck.

Looking at his pricing on the website, his stuff looks very good considering how little he charges. Not for everyone, of course, but he must have found his niche.
