"Now, i reviewed over the ear headphones that were sub-par in every category, so these couldn't be any good, right? So, all the basics and really the case is not bad if you don't want them in your pocket.a little big but thats being picky. Do better than 3pt type for us not young guys."
"These blew the top of my head clean off. I then had an experience, I can only describe as being an assault on the hearing senses by a quality built audio masterwork. They are so clear, they actually create soundstaging, imaging, and things all without distortion. It just gives you the room you need to accommodate your maximum volume. Update: every pair of ear buds I ever had, seemed to move if I yawned or raised my eyebrows. I feel like some great company left some money on the table to benefit all of earbud mankind."

Blue Yeti USB Microphone - Silver
Compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8 (including 8.1), Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (Home and Professional), and Mac OS X (10.4.11 or higher), and requires a minimum of 64 MB of RAM(remove existing and upload).
"Here is my full video review of the Blue Yeti microphone that I made for my YouTube channel."
"If you ever tried to stream through a Windows pc you will notice a delay between your live voice and what goes through the mic. There is no delay when you plug your headphones directly into the mic."
"I was able to pick one up on a lightning deal for $89 and it's well worth that price, however, I've had a few problems with it from day one that have since been rectified. Number one, I had to ship the first one back because one of the screws that holds the microphone into place was stripped out. Finally we can talk about the good and what should matter most when you are purchasing an expensive USB microphone and that is the sound quality -- it's excellent. If you are streaming a podcast or recording scratch audio for video production like I use it for, this microphone is really great."
"Most of the time I just use them in normal headphone mode - meaning I don't turn on the built in amp. I've spent a decent amount of time trying to adjust them to make them more comfortable, but I haven't managed. I'd imagine they could easily be modified to make them more comfortable, but I have other headphones that are better for prolonged use, so I'll use those instead most of the time."
"I don’t have a special sound dampened room but the focused range setting does a very good job of only picking up my voice."

Your kids will definitely have loads of fun as they strike the keys with specially designed easy-to-hold mallets. Each product includes a music sheet so your kids can learn how to play the classic song Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
"Yes, the lovely Glockenspiel Xylophone arrived safe and sound. I look forward to when he is older and can make his own songs and play from the sheet music. One day, at a kindergarten meeting with his teacher, we hear Ode to Joy being played on the piano. I even played several types of music to them via headphones while they were still in utero..lol. I will be spreading the word on how great your product is."
"The notes have a great sound!"
"It's sturdy, the review about it being loose... ignore that they clearly don't know how a xylophone works."
"At first he was really smacking the key board pretty hard, but Grampa (me) helped him to be more gentle which did not happen overnight, and he's getting better everyday."
"My young grandson loves the colors and sounds."
"Very well made and eco friendly and they work exactly like they should.. sound is great too !"
"Packaging is super cute and the Xylophone itself is really nice."
"I gave it 4 stars because there are some glue drips down the handle of the mallet, but really, that isn't a huge deal."

Squier by Fender Vintage SS Modified Special Jaguar Bass - Candy Apple Red
Features include a sleek offset-waist body and an ultra-slim fast-action 30” scale neck, with the added one-two punch of a booming split single-coil Precision Bass® middle pickup paired with a growling Jazz Bass® single-coil bridge pickup. Maple C shape neck with a 9.5 in radius and 20 medium jumbo frets.
"So far the sound is great, care needs to be made not to hit the low 'E' string too hard or it twangs and sounds louder than the other strings, but perhaps it's me who needs to improve my picking technique."
"It can be hard to find short scale basses, especially at this price point, but this one hits it out of the park."
"Sounds great playing 90's alternative, classic rock, or just noodling behind acoustic guitars."
"It is fixable and for the price of the bass it would still be cheap enough to take it to a repair shop or fix it yourself."
"Great beginner's bass but order strings along with it."
"I absolutely love the look, feel, and playability of this bass."
"The price on this bass when I purchased it was low enough that this would be an ideal pick for beginners wanting to learn the bass like me."
"I got this because of the great reviews... And it's true.."

"If you ever tried to stream through a Windows pc you will notice a delay between your live voice and what goes through the mic. There is no delay when you plug your headphones directly into the mic."

If you are streaming a podcast or recording scratch audio for video production like I use it for, this microphone is really great."
"My son loves it!"
"The microphone the one who received this had, was in fine working order and it was good sound quality, but I wanted to gift it for an upgrade."
"One minor gripe is that I wish that it used a USB type A connection or a USB micro like most cell phones. It is powered through the USB cable (which is great) but the oddball boxy USB mini jack is hard to find."
"The drivers uploaded onto my computer automatically (was running windows 7). The weight made it feel really solid, I wasn't handling a chintzy piece of plastic, it was actual metal (aluminum, I think). I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to get into filming or basic voice work."

"But after 30 yrs of longing to drum again the Alesis Nitro kit has me back at my former level and able to practice anytime day or night without bothering my family or the neighbors. Finally, I went to Guitar Center to check out some of the more professional versions of electronic drums only to see a higher price also meant, heavier, less compact and very little improvement in sound-for-the-money. And best of all, the buid quality, setup feel, real pedals and overall experience put the user in the ananlog drum set world!"
"Crash and snare have multi-zone sensors which is something you dont find on many sets in this price range. Snare can get good rim shot sounds and you can choke the crash. You even have the option to expand and add an additional tom and crash which is not normal for kits in this price range. Bang for the buck - This kit comes with everything you need to start jamming including sticks a real (and good quality) kick pedal. This is a bit nit picky for a kit at this price point but I would have preferred a multi zone ride."
"Yes, you can spend more money and get better pads, but these work just fine."
"After many discussions with Alesis support, and after a replacement cable set, replacement module, and replacement hi-hat pad, I can get the volume to acceptable levels, but only after maxing out the settings."

Fender Acoustic Guitar Bundle with Gig Bag, Tuner, Strings, Strap, Picks, Austin Bazaar Instructional DVD, and Polishing Cloth
Full-size dreadnought body for full and vibrant tone, suited for all styles of music.
"It's not like a luthier made this, definitely a factory in China, but you'll be surprised with how nice this plays."
"The gig bag doesn't offer a whole lot of protection, but it does have some light padding and will do just fine for storing it at the house. (Edit 7/12/13 - the picture has been changed and the tuner that is now shown is the one that I received). 2) the extra string pack was missing, but Amazon CS more than made up for that. I'm not letting either of those little quirks affect my 5 star rating, because overall I feel like this is a great package for someone who is taking their first steps in learning how to play."
"But do not buy this guitar if the instructional dvd is one of the reasons your buying it."
"My one complaint- why in the world would the seller put an advertisement sticker on the body of the guitar???"
"He still doesn't think its better than his guitar but he thinks for a beginner or someone that is still fairly new to playing this guitar would be a great start for them and would let them progress far enough until they want to buy a very expensive guitar."
"The coating on the guitar takes a while to go away, so if you like that new guitar smell this is the product for you!"
"My 20 year old asked only for this, for Christmas."
"My son wanted a guitar for Christmas this year."

On Stage XCG4 Black Tripod Guitar Stand, Single Stand
A high-quality stand at an unbeatable price, the XGC-4 features our exclusive velveteen rubber padding, heavy-duty sheet metal leg housing and 17mm/22mm tubing. Friction locking knob locks in and prevents rotation.
"He and his brother have just started taking guitar and bass lessons. I bought the 3 pack, one for my nephew with the new bent up Squire, one for my nephew who just received a new Yamaha bass I bought for him on Amazon and one for me to hold up an acoustic bass guitar I keep in my office for practice. I've been playing for 50 years and there is nothing worse than being at a gig and seeing your instrument get knocked by some drunk who wants to tell you how great you guys sound, but because my instrument was in the stand, it didn't end up laying on the ground."
"However, the product did not have any package support and was very loose in the outside mailing carton."
"My guitar only sits on the stand in my room, so i don't know how easy it is to travel with the stand."
"I've purchased many of these over the years and though they seem to be getting a little "economical" in their construction - still can't beat them for the bang for the buck."
"I like the design, but they are hard to close down to a small size for transport."
"I do have more expensive, high tech and fancier stands for my acoustic guitars, but at $10 a piece for the three pack, these come in really handy because you can leave 'em all over the place and always have a stand at the ready."
"I do not quite understand the negative reviews mentioning that this stand is unstable, I keep my Les Paul on it and it is quite stable."
"I put my guitar on it, and pushed it (while holding it) and compared the two, and this one definitely doesn't put up much resistance at all. I have some fairly nice guitars, but even if I just had a basic guitar I probably wouldn't try to save the $8 and put it on this stand. The "FretRest" from Guitar Center is on the right in all the pictures."

":). I asked around a lot to finally decide what to buy, since I was a rookie myself. The keys are not like the ones on the cheap keyboards (empty underneath), and you could really get a good sound out of them by pressing hard, or play a soft, smooth tune. Other perks include a USB outlet, which means you can connect the piano to your ipod or pc, great sampling system, and a song bank."
"Casio is the perfect next step for anyone looking to start creating their own music at home. It has so many great features and even though we have been jammin' on this keyboard for a few weeks now, I feel like we haven't even scratched the surface with what it can do.

The stainless steel slider and softly padded headband allows you to find the perfect fit without constraint and provide excellent durability. Gentle Reminder: Depending on your head/ear size/shape, it may be a little tight(feels like“on ear”) for someone to wear which is designed to avoid sound leakage. In case of that and to get both audio and wearing comfort, please take off the headphone every 1-2 hrs to get your ears relax and protect them from muggy environment in use.
"These are the BEST headphones I've tested (and I've tested a lot) when it comes to latency--that is there's no delay when viewing a video on my iPhone and the audio that's playing."
"No headphone has ever covered my ears without hard places or sweaty or too tight. Pairs easily with my moto G 4 phone and also a BT transmitter connected to my Chrome TV dongle. Ear cups are flat enough to lay head on pillow to watch TV. We'll see how they hold up to long daily use. Update 9/30/2017 I wear these for several hours each day."
"Update 04/06/2017: Customer service did pretty good job and fast, by contacting me about the issue I had."
"The only complaints I have is when doing certain exercises they tend to slide off my head a little so I have to adjust them a few times."
"My wife took over my $300 head phones so I needed to find something that was ok and won't break the bank."
"I've really enjoyed these MPow Bluetooth Headphones, especially for the price."
"Need a nice value bluetooth headphones with durability, good sound quality, & can be wireless OR wired? while also testing the ability for folding the headphones (worked great, very solid feeling). 2) Turn on Bluetooth on your phone and pair the MPOW headphones / connect. 4) Operate the headphones (connected and streaming from your BT-enabled phone) for 10 hours continuous streaming and wired mode (using the supplied 3.5mm audio cable) along with conducting a test phone call. I turned on the headphones (the headphones provide an initial. "powering on" along withe a "not paired" audio cue), then paired the device and connected by phone using Bluetooth (yet another audio cue "phone 1 connected"). I next disconnected from bluetooth and attempted to test wired connection using the supplied 3.5mm audio cable that was supplied by MPOW to connect to my phone's headphone jack. I've done a test with the headphones running while streaming music using bluetooth, my test ended after 10 hours and it was still running! *Conclusion*. This MPOW Bluetooth Headphones Over Ear delivers in what they said this device could do.

NO buzzing noises, NO tuning problems even when you play higher frets, has a Big, Clear, Warm & Bright Sound, features an Arched Back.

A BEAUTIFUL LOOKING UKULELE: 24 inches long, Sapele/Mahogany Top, Back & Sides & Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, Aquila Strings Installed (Best Ukulele Strings), Handmade ABS Bindings, Chrome die cast tuning gears keeps ukulele in tune!
"This uke isn't intended for high-end use, it's a great beginner uke or an excellent spare to keep handy for trips to the beach or parties where a better uke might get banged around. It also comes with picks, but you can throw those away - you shouldn't play the uke with a pick it makes it sound abrasive and shrill. A NOTE ABOUT TUNING: There's a misperception that a "good" ukulele stays in tune once you've tuned the strings. Strings change tune radically with even slight shifts in humidity or temperature. If you keep your uke in a house with an HVAC it should stay in relatively good tune (once the new strings have had a chance to stretch a bit), but if you take it outside to go to a friend's house or to school, the strings will need to be re-tuned before you play - anytime the environment changes, the strings will be affected to a certain degree. Finally, somebody explained to her the physics of instrument strings and they started tuning right before they went out to perform."
"She really loves anything to do with music and a while back decided that she wanted to learn to play the ukulele. This one is definitely a good competitor for some more expensive ones we found in a local music shop and a step way above some of cheaper ones. I will admit that we don’t know much about a Ukulele but we do know when in instrument sounds good and is in tune. This was a super easy instrument for my daughter to start playing immediately. This ukulele went on a cross country trip with 6 people in a vehicle so I know it got knocked around and has been played a ton. Product provided as a free sample in exchange for my evaluation and my honest, unbiased review."
"The bundle also included a rather thin gig bag which really does not protect the instrument very well, but I intend to purchase a hard shell case for this ukulele, it deserves it. So, in conclusion, let me say that I highly recommend this ukulele if you want to have a nice travel size instrument, it's playability is excellent and it was delivered by UPS on time and well packaged."

"When the instrument is in tune, the LED indicator on the Snark will hover in the middle but bounce around a little. This is fine, except when compared to the UberTuner which has an LED circle that lights up around the note you are tuned to. To test each tuner, I clamped the Snark and UberTuner on my guitar at the same time. It would be nice if the On/Off button was either a different color, was raised a little, or had a little nub you could feel with your finger."
"A 12 string guitar naturally takes a little longer to tune, but now it is a lot faster."
"Great tuner, easy to use and very accurate."
"UPDATE - The seller contacted me after my initial review and both refunded my purchase price and gave me $10 for the batteries that I had to buy. For that reason, I am upgrading my review to 5 stars from the initial 2."
"I was deciding between this and the Snark Brand tuner ( which is probably good to) and chose this one because of the display...when the circle and line turn solid blue ,(and no red bars light up.)."
"Nice large face, easy to read."
"I installed the battery & clipped it on the headstock of my guitar and started tightening strings."
"I have two Snark tuners and both of them tune the guitar out of tune, yes I said out of tune."

M-Audio SP-2 | Universal Sustain Pedal with Piano Style Action for Electronic Keyboards
Before you buy a piano pedal, ask yourself this: do I know the polarity of my piano? Classic-style sustain pedal for use with any electronic keyboard.
"M-Audio SP-2 | Universal Sustain Pedal with Piano Style Action for Electronic Keyboards. I don't know why but I decided I needed to review this pedal after using it for a little over a year. The pedal definitely works like an acoustic piano's sustain pedal since it has half-pedal expressive capabilities, which can be extremely useful."
"If the software instrument you have selected already has a sustain, you will not notice the pedal working. But if you select other instruments, such as acoustic piano, you definitely notice a functional sustain working with the pedal."
"It will not move at all while positioned on the floor rug or regular carpet. Just like a real piano sustain pedal. I am a former Electrical Engineer Computer Specialist and sound."
"I know with some pedals the polarity get whacky and the sustain stays in, but havent had that issue with this at all."
"I own a Baldwin upright and I do love the sound and expressiveness, however keeping it in tune is costly and inconvenient."
"Turns out its the same one that my real keyboard player friend uses heavily, and his has held up great as well."
"This pedal just radiates quality -- the housing, the pedal, the spring action - everything feels great!"
"My only issue is that it is LONG, so with my piano against the wall the pedal is too far forward and impossible to use."

Best Sheet Music Folders

Pro Tec FSA1E Deluxe Choral Folder with Elastic String Dividers & Adjustable Hand Strap
Style: Choral with Retaining String. Adjustable hand strap provides hand support & fatigue relief.
"The only con I can think of for this folder is that it is a little big, but that is what I wanted so it is also a pro as far as I'm concerned."
"I would have liked the pockets to be even deeper than they are, but I have a LOT of music for a swing band that I store here (about 200+ songs, many of them multiple pages)."
"The only issues I had were that upon receiving the product, the left pocket was crumpled at the top and couldn't be flattened out, and the bottom of the left pocket was stitched to the folder itself, instead of protruding forward like it should have."
"But this folder, with its Elastic bands to keep music from falling out, works really well and can hold a lot of sheets safely with no worry of damage or wear and tear."
"Stylish and function--great folder, my son loves it."
"Wonderfully designed and a pleasure to hold during a performance."
"I bought this folder to have a safe place to store solos and orchestral excerpts that I'm currently working on."
"I didn't want to buy a higher-end one for my child because I wasn't sure how long my child would continue with this new hobby."

Best Guitar Strap Locks

Schaller 14010101 Security Straplocks, Nickel
Don't risk dropping that beautiful guitar you poured your hard-earned cash into. For decades the most widely used strap lock system for guitars and basses.
"They work fine, but because one of my guitar's strap posts in located on the same screw that holds the neck, I'd have to place this in the same spot as that post. The screw for that is larger than the mounting screw for the Schaller."
"So if you decide to use this for an acoustic you may want to consider moving it to a more ergonomic spot on the heel of your guitar."
"good old Schaller locks, I don't trust my guitars to anything else."
"The screw that actually goes into the guitar is thinner than the OEM And makes me question the security of its hold."
"Only downside is that the bolt that goes on the strap is wider than most strap holes so you have to make a hole in your strap to fit the lock snugly."
"The strap just snaps right on."
"They are holding fine, but look a little strange because they stand off the bass a little higher than the normal strap studs."
"One problem I encountered with my Fender acoustic bass was that they provided a normal strap button at the top, but at the peg end they used a traditional plastic peg, matching the bridge pins."
