Dr. Dre Headphones

I have a lot of customers coming in to sell me their Dr Dre’s headphone and I never did buy them 2nd hand because headphones needs to be purchased new in my humble opinion.  If I wanted a Dr Dre’s headphone, I would go to  monster beats studio  and buy it from there.  The ones […]

Violin For Kids

  Searching for  violin strings  for a customer at the store, the spouse realized that it would have been cheaper to send our kid for violin classes instead of piano for the last 2.5 yrs.  We recently bought a piano for her at close to $3000 and she is only at the beginner stage of […]

Acoustic Electric Guitar

We haven’t seen a lot of  Ovation gear  or Acoustic Electric Classical guitar around town, so when a customer brought one in to sell at the store, I had to check it out.   I hear that they are good for jazz, Latin, flamenco or classical guitar players looking for balanced tone and exceptional plugged-in performance.  […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

What’s Your Vice?

Singer/song writer Alisa Apps recently admitted that she sucks her thumb but is trying to stop. The video she posted looks more like a ploy for attention rather than an actual confession of some ‘dark secret’. I can’t say as I have any secret vices of my own really, just typical stuff like eating chocolate […]
