Gibson SG-24 Review

Gibson Limited Edition SG Standard 24

Electric Guitar with Case

Gibson made a Tony Iommi guitar that was 24 fret for those who wanted a 24 fret SG guitar. Then in 2011 for Gibson’s 50th Anniversary, they issued a limited run of 24 fret Gibson SG’s. Unfortunately, I didn’t get one of those, but Gibson also put out a limited run of 24 fret SG’s in 2012 and I got one! This model is supposed to be only available at American Musical Supply and that is where I purchased mine.

Zoom HD16 Review and Walk Through

Zoom HD16

Multi-Track Digital Recorder

I actually wanted to get the Zoom MRS 1608. I suppose like some of you out there, I was reading about it and wanting to get it, but the price always had it on the wish list. Then I finally was ready to purchase it, and it became obsolete because of the Zoom HD16. Electronics and technology moves by so fast that, ya know what? This is now obsolete by the R16 and R24, but I think I’ll keep mine.

Zoom products, for as long as I can remember, have always been a quality product with more features than a man or woman can use. When I was looking for a home studio recorder  I naturally looked at prices. Their price initially drew me in, but after checking out the features, I was sold on it even if it would have cost more.

Marshall MG15HFX

I have been looking for something that I can play at the house without blowing everyone’s eardrums out. Sometimes when writing music, I get up at weird hours and work on things. Well, I came upon this for sale really cheap because the music shop guy selling it didn’t know how to set the switches and he thought it wasn’t working properly. In fact, I didn’t know till I got it home. I thought it was going to be a fixer-upper. But once I researched it and saw what was set wrong, It now works great! For a 15 watt head, this is a powerhouse of amp.

Native American Flutes

 

There are many stories that explain the origin of the Native American Flute. Since my knowledge is only of what I have touched and felt, I do not know. But my grandfather told me that each one was made through the direction of a shaman. They used each individual’s arm and hand and fingers as their guide to its dimensions. In doing this, each one had its own sound and was as unique as the one who made it. The flutes were used mainly in courtship, but was also used for spiritual healing and growth. I believe he spoke the truth.
