Microphones And More Microphones

Looking for microphones has never been easier , especially  akg at guitarcenter.com  .  They have all sorts and we are so happy to be able to find the ones we need for our singing sessions at the community center.  Some are really pricey but if you are looking for something on a more reasonable range, have no fear , because they have it here as well.   Order yours online easily but one can also read all the reviews first before deciding , that was what we did, they are real reviews from real people , so you know what to expect from the microphones that you are considering buying.  I loved reading the reviews first , that way , I can decide which one to buy and what are the pros and cons.

Drummer’s Shoes

00

Easter gift for the spouse who plays the drum like he is a genius or a true drummer but little does he knows that it is so loud and disturbing at times.  But in any relationship , you just need to learn to live with it and since he is into drumming a lot lately , a  db shoes  for Easter is what I got for him.  I didn’t know that they had drummer shoes until he told me about it.  But I read that all professional players has one of these because you can feel the pedal better and thus control your pedals for maximum sound on your drums.  Interesting but I guess only those who loves playing on the drum would know that and I’m glad I was told about it by the spouse.

LaunchPad Mini

Making music has never been easier with the   launchpad mini  on your PC or even your iPad and Mac .   Now normally folks say that if you can use it on your PC, you can’t use it on your iPad or Mac, but after reading up on the information on what it can do, I might just buy it for my kids.  And because it is so small, you can travel with it and use it anywhere and anytime.  And since it is fairly affordable, I might get 2 , one for each kid.

5 String Guitar

1

I’ve played on a 6 string guitar before but never on a  5 string guitar  , so when the spouse wanted one for Christmas, I had to do some hunting for it at a good price.  Nothing too cheap for the husband, else he would think I don’t appreciate him and it has to be a decent quality one.  But of course, there are so many to choose from , so a lot of reading up is necessary and checking out real reviews for the guitar I want to purchase from other people who’ve bought the same guitar before.  As Christmas draws nearer, I’m just glad that I can find it online to purchase and have them mail it to me before the day.

Vlogging & Recording

03

Vlogging is the in thing these days and I myself have been really addicted with watching vlogs on youtube and I’ve seen youtubers use the  sennheiser ew 112-p g3  for their recording purposes and really envy them for spending so much on professional equipment for their passion.  Sure vlogging can make you some money but not all vloggers make big money , yet they want to do it well and produce quality vlogs.  Of course, not everyone would be using such professional microphones for their recording but I think I too would invest in it because it’s light and handy.

Maximizing Your Amp Performance

 01

Since our store deal with some musical instruments, we are often asked how to maximize customer’s amp’s performance.  Seriously, we are no expert but we an do some  tube amp troubleshooting  for them and suggest some solutions.  We also armed ourselves with some knowledge by reading it up on the internet, that way we can always try and help and also not sound too ignorant.  But what we don’t understand is when the customer/s asked for advice but yet comes up with their own “possible” solution.  Some just don’t know when to leave it to the pros to help them, and as for those kind of customers there is really nothing much we can do to assist them.

Geeks Into Trumpets

book

Yes, lately I’ve noticed that most of my geeky and nerdy friends are quite talented.  Not only are they great with the computer, coding and on top of all new gadgets and games , they are musically inclined too.  I had the pleasure of being entertained by a group of nerdy friends who play the trumpet , of course they didn’t use  trumpets for professionals  but I think they are the above average trumpet players.  You will be surprised with some geeky friends of yours because their talents are not limited to just nerdy and geeky stuff as I found out.

Lily Camera

Very interesting right?  and if you order before June 15th, you can get it for only $499 and you will only get it in  February 2016, when they start shipping them out.  So what does the Lily Camera do you asked ?  To put it simply, it’s a flying camera.  But how does it work without a remote control you asked?  I was curious too – so I went on to read it a bit more.

So I found out that it follows the wearer’s bracelet – so if you are wearing the bracelet for the drone – Lily in this case, it will follow you wherever you go.  Pretty simple eh ?  especially great for those who wants to shoot outdoor activities or even a promotional video for a canoeing trip or rafting trip since it is waterproof , so I read.

book

As you can see here, the tracker or a GPS in the bracelet is worn by whoever is controlling Lily and it just follows you wherever you go and video tape you immediately.  Your kids can use it, you can use it and professionals can use it as well.  But don’t wait to long to pre-order yours if you are into this video taping thing or an outdoor person , because after the pre-order time is up , it will be going for $999.

Someone asked me if they can buy a Lily and spy on their neighbor or boyfriends?  hahah!  that’s funny !  but truthfully, you have to be there to be filmed because you need to be wearing that GPS bracelet remember?  so yes, it’s very legal according to the inventor of Lily.

Changes With Your Netflix

0111

Yup ! some changes with Netflix and good ones it looks like from her to me.    For those who are using Netflix and loving it, I’m sure you would notice that selecting the movies or tv shows from Netflix can be a real pain.  If you feel that way, you will welcome the new change whereby , the thumbnails are bigger in its own section and it will instantly expand the movies and shows to see its details.  You also can get a short preview of what you are about to watch.  The design is supposed to be a lot sleeker as well as faster.

Father’s Day Gift

June 21 is Father’s Day this year , and instead of waiting for the last minute to get something for the spouse, this year, I’ve decided that we want to get something special for the spouse.  To tell him how important he is to us and that we appreciate everything he has done for us thus far.

cats

We know that he would love anyone of this  Epi  limited editions, and since it’s 40% off right now, we are getting one for him for Father’s Day.  I’m sure he would feel really bad , he didn’t get a lot for me for Mother’s day now . haha!  I will be recording his reaction when he opens up his Father’s day present this year and put it up for viewing .  Yes, I’m “evil” hhahaha!
