This is a great gadget for anybody to use. It is easy to assemble and easy to get the hang of. A good feature is that you can use two microphones (only one comes with it) and the numerous controls mean that you can adjust the volume of both mics separately, the echoes and the overall volume. It is also very good that you can plug in an iPod/MP3 player to sing along and you can turn off the vocals with the touch of a button. However, the sound is a bit distorted and the vocals do not disappear completely. It is definitely worth the price and would make a good Christmas/birthday present for aspiring singers!
