Street Percussion

Unlike the spouse, I’m not particularly interested in street music but when she saw some performing in the city last summer, she had to dragged us all to the waterfront to watch the performance by these street artistes.  I was very much intrigue by what they can do with just a tiny instrument and I [...]

Boosting Pedal

Shopping for a boosting pedal and was recommended the  mxr mc401 at guitar center  .  I wanted something affordable and most people found that having this boosting pedal makes a great difference in the music one plays. I’ve always read that the Custom Audio Electronics–Bradshaw is a trusted brand by the pros, therefore, it would [...]

Acoustic Electric Bass

I haven’t played on an acoustic electric bass before but I know that one can get a  acoustic bass at wwbw  as a buddy of mine bought one. I would love to have one for myself even though I don’t play the bass that well but it’s a pretty cool gadget to get for my [...]

Acoustic Guitars For Beginners

Folks come into the store all the time looking for a new guitar especially for beginners and even though I recommend the  new epiphone dr-100 acoustic guitar  to them, they want to spend more on an electric guitar.  Of course, I don’t stop them from spending more money at the store but if you want [...]

Music Gadgets

For those who have been to my store, you would know that we do carry some music gadgets and instruments and when we don’t have what a customer need, we outsource it like the  exceptional arturia keyboards at Musicians Friend that a customer/friend needed for recording. I was only too happy to help with getting [...]

Saxaphone Music

 Listening to someone play the saxaphone in the club makes me what to get one and learn how to play some jazz on a saxaphone too.  I was out with the spouse with her friends, like a couple’s night and the spouse loved jazz on the saxophone, so I might just get a  yamaha tenor [...]

Music Speakers Around The Town

A week or so ago, I was out throwing garbage when I heard some music playing in the background.  A look around, I saw some  speakers on the side street.  I figured it had to be the town’s idea and a few days later, speakers were sprouting out around the Main Street area downtown.  Had [...]

Drums

So we have the normal drums for sale at our store but now our customers want the electronic drums – and like any good businessman, I send them to where I know to get them one.  The  Electronic Drums at WWBW  are by far the most reasonable ones I’ve found on the internet and I’ve [...]

Guitar Amps

Customers asked me all the time for good amps and I want to show them what a good amp is – like cool rivera amps at guitar center  but at our store, we don’t carry such high quality amps because not many people around here can afford to buy amps that are at this price.  But [...]

Guitar Picks

Bought a whole load of music stuff from a supplier in Toronto – to re-sell at the store.  People always asked for picks and we only have guitar strings for starters, so this time, I ordered a few more things to see if it would sell.  Hopefully, it does – so that we have another [...]

Guitar Strings

I didn’t know that guitar strings were different, so when my dad wanted some for his 12 string guitar – I bought him some  Electric Guitar Strings  instead online.   So for those of you who are looking for guitar strings, make sure you tell them exactly what kind you want – for an electric guitar [...]

iPod’s, I like ‘em

We have no less than 3 iPod’s in the house currently, and another one in the car. The one in the car is there because the headphone jack is messed up, but I have one of those Belkin thingies that plug into the cigarette lighter and broadcast your iPod tunes through the car radio. It [...]

Tunes in the Car

I feel like I wasted nearly a thousand bucks a few years back when I bought my new car. I opted for the Audiophile package that included an in-dash 6 disc CD changer and supposedly better than average speakers. I’m pretty happy with the speakers really, but the 6 disc changer rarely gets used since [...]

Songs Missing from Rock Band

While playing Rock Band at a friends house the other day we were yakking about what new songs we’d like to see in the game. He thought some of my choices were a little retarded, but then some of his were out to lunch too if you ask me. Tipa at West Karana just had [...]
