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.

Cigars Magazine

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Cigar Advisor appears to me not to be just another cigar magazine. It is replete with fun articles and nice photos that treats cigar smoking seriously. I enjoy reading their monthly articles. I do enjoy the basic info the cigars magazine offers and candidly even like the ratings. They serve as a point against which I enjoy judging myself not as to who is right but just to see what someone else saw in a particular cigar. One plus of the Cigar Advisor is that they have help to raise the awareness and thus the market for fine cigars. This has resulted in more and more fine cigars being available around the US since there is a higher demand for it.

Handmade Cigars

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

A lot of people smoke different types of cigarettes. Some even have their own preferences with their cigars. They even have some alone time for just smoking them. Though there are people who smoke after each meal or during their breaks, there are those who prefer smoking at their own time at home and take their time enjoying their cigars. There are even those who prefer handmade cigars like Fuente cigars because of the rich flavor and the smooth and exquisite taste. It is their way of relaxing and enjoying their personal time usually at home.

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.

Adding a Gaming Console

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Gaming consoles can add some life to a home. Adding a gaming console like the xbox can really liven up the place. Kids and adults can both enjoy different games and play with or against each other. It’s also a way to bond with the family and have lots of fun during the games. Staying at home will not be boring with a gaming console.

Smoking Time

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Smoking has become a habit of some people. They smoke after meals or during breaks. They smoke to relax and unwind. They like enjoying the taste and aroma of cigars like the gurkha cigars which have better taste than ordinary cigarettes. They like the difference in flavor and its smoothness which helps them feel more relaxed. Just sitting somewhere with a smoke can really be enjoyable for them while passing the time or just hanging out.
