Music Man SUB Ray4

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

I was in the market to buy a bass, seeing as am now part of a band as the bass player and I don’t have a bass, I’ve just been playing my friends. I came across the Sterling by Music Man SUB Ray4. The Sterling line is very good, both the guitars and the basses. They are made overseas, and they don’t have some of the extras that come on the Music Man instruments such as the compensated nuts. The music man guitar at Musicians Friend play very well, sound good and look very good, so for the money, we cannot go wrong.

Yamaha 76 Key Keyboard

Friday, November 29th, 2013

I am a novice piano player, but for the price, this electric piano is fantastic. It works perfectly with Mac Garage Band (download Yamaha Mac drivers). The grand piano sample sounds like a real piano. The led display helps with reading notes. There are 300+ samples, fun for the my nephews, and fun for me. It has a a nice resistive feeling between a real piano and a synth. The lower octaves have a heavier feel compared to the higher octaves. For the serious novice or the pro that needs a nice inexpensive portable, the yamaha 76 key keyboard with usb connectivity at musicians friend is a super bargain. In no way does this machine feel cheap. Yamaha created a wonderful machine, with the greatest respect for those on a budget.Yamaha YPG-235 76-Key Portable Grand Piano

Hercules DJ Equipment

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

I’ve heard some positive things about Hercules, personally I think its controller is the perfect size and with well laid buttons and space, which make it more comfortable to mix  for me. The exciting hercules dj equipment also has an in-built sound-card. I have tried just plugging in the Mixtrack pro and Hercules controller, both worked fine without mapping, just need the sound settings changed to suit.

Jupiter 846RL Flugelhorn

Friday, June 28th, 2013

The Jupiter 846RL is probably the best flugelhorn for the money going, IMO. It’s made in Taiwan but in the last few years their stuff has been much, much better than in years past. Not a bad horn at all and superior to the Blessing and other lower end models by most accounts. But don’t just take my word for it, you can find info on affordable flugelhorn at WWBW.

Rocktron Pedals

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

I have the Rocktron Dreamstar Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal, and I love it. I’m kinda a chorus nut, I’ve had so many digital chorus options (i.e. the multieffects the put in everything these days) and I’ve never been happy until I got the Dreamstar (which is analog).

It’s a really nice sounding pedal, I use it all the time and have had no problem whatsoever. If one day it dies (and I hope it never does) at the very least I know I had the sound I need/like. Next time I buy rocktron pedals, it will be from Guitar Center. They have great prices on their musical equipments.

Ukulele Playing

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Though we always see guitar players, there are also those who like playing the smaller version ukulele. It is smaller with only 4 strings instead of the 6 strings that a regular guitar has. Those who are interested in it can find a ukulele at guitar center and be able to create their own music or their own versions of songs that they like. The sound it makes reminds you of the beach and the sand maybe because it’s commonly heard in Hawaiian music.

Cheap Trombone

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

There are some kids that like learning how to play a trombone the first time they see it. They are intrigued on how some people are able to play music with it. They even form their own little band if they are able to get different instruments. There is now a trombone made of plastic and is lightweight that might be a perfect gift for children. The cheap Jiggs Pbone at WWBW may be what they want to play with. It will be a great way to start learning how to play the trombone.

New Amplifier

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

There are players and musicians that have been playing for years. Their instruments may have gone through a lot of songs and they may have made a lot of music. But there will always be a need to upgrade or replace some of the instruments and amplifiers that are always being used especially if in a band. There are instruments and amplifiers like the Ashdown Amplifiers at Musicians Friend that may be the replacement equipment that they need to continue making beautiful music. It is also quite a welcome when new equipment is being used like a bit of excitement trying to create new music.

Acoustic Guitar

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

There are some who are good at playing the guitar. They love playing it as a hobby and can even be a kind of stress reliever for them. A lot use acoustic guitars like the gibson acoustic guitar musicians friend offers. Acoustic guitars can be played anywhere without the aid of amplifiers and other electronics. They can also be played in slow tunes or fastere tunes depending on the mood of the player.

Bass Guitar

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Completing the instruments in a band will need the addition of a bass guitar for more punch to rock music. Guitars like the epiphone zenith bass music123 could really add to the effect of the music being played. Having different players with their own instruments playing in a band can really add more spirit to the song. It makes the song more alive and the players more satisfied with their music.
