Bari Sax

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

If you are looking to buy a new bari sax  go to Woodwind/Brasswind. I acquired my bari sax at wwbw because they have a great selection and when you find one, you can try out all of that model they have on stock to find the best one. You can also try out mpcs there or at home with a small fee.  They’re truly a great store, and I’d recommend them to anyone.

Hasps

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Hasps can be installed on doors and cabinets. It allows a padlock to be used on the door to make it more secure. There are some things that we may need to keep a bit more safe and secure. If the cabinet is in a garage, tools can be locked in it so unwanted people cannot gain easy access to it. It puts some security for the things in a cabinet or in a room.

Sunglasses

Monday, March 11th, 2013

It’s almost the summer again and the sun is starting to shine brightly. The heat can be felt but a lot of people will of course be planning for their vacation trip or may have already started their vacation. Time to go to the beach for a lot of people. It’s also time for using sunscreens and shades. Aside from taking care of the skin and hair, we can also take care of our eyes with Maui Jim sunglasses. It’s fashionable and will also take care of our eyes under the bright sun.

Fulltone GT 500

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

I just played with my new distortion pedal with my tele and my Invader. I got the fulltone gt 500 guitar center  Not to noisy with the tele, unless you dime everything, then it is really noisy.  I like the boost in front of the distortion best. Found running the Volume and Drive on the boost with the bass a little past half way and the treble a little less sounding really good with the distortion side set both knobs right below noon…bass about 6, mids about 4, treble about 6…at these settings it absolutely screamed. turning down the guitar volume didn’t clean up as well as I would like but it did to some degree.

Compared it to my Barber Small Fry…I like the Fulltone better, compared it to the Bonzai Fireball like them both for different reasons, the Fireball is smoother,  doesn’t have the edge that the GT-500 has. The Fireball has no where near the gain you can achieve with the GT-500. I personally would not see a Blues player caring for this pedal, it gets pretty darn close to heavy metal. It can put out way more gain than I would ever use or would have ever guessed.

In my opinion it is a keep and could actually replace some of my other pedals as I get to know it more and experiment more. But for the first real test, it’s a winner…and it’s over the top! As usual I spoke to soon earlier. I have to admit the more I play with it, it’s setting,  guitar volumes, etc…I like it more and more and more!

I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.
