2.0 out of 5 stars Crackles When Loud, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dear speakers,

I hate it when you crackle so loud that I can't hear the music from my laptop. Alls I ask is that you do your job and make my laptop louder without adding your own contributions to the auditory experience. Why is it that you feel the need to sing along with your annoying bangs and hisses when I turn you past your halfway point? I think we need to see other devices.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not too sticky, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the best glues out there. I bought quite a few for my classroom and, while they do the job, they aren't very sticky at all (not really what you look for in a glue stick). They weren't even particularly sticky when I first purchased them either.

Pro: cheap
Con: lacks the stickiness that you want in a glue

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!, 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No longer am I plagued with a bed sheet that pings up every night! This extra deep bed sheet fits my thick (38cm) mattress easily as opposed to my last 'standard' one that wouldn't quite get there. Still looks good after a few washes too.

Tip: Use ironing board cover clips to hold the sheet in place and to keep your sheet smooth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant All Rounder, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the minute, I'm building my first electric guitar from scratch and this book was vital to my choice of parts and woods. Every part of the guitar is explained in detail; it's function and how it affects the tone/sound of the instrument. Dave lists the main types of woods and their qualities, the different models of bridges, bolt on necks, set necks, nuts... The list goes on. Even a bit of history of how and when parts were first used and engineered.

It is written in a really easy to read and understand style and I would definitely recommend it to anybody looking to familiarise themselves with the parts of a guitar and their functions. Anybody planning to build a guitar, anybody looking to purchase a guitar, anybody wanting to know more about their guitar, anybody interested in guitars in general... this book is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Button Holes Too Small, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful strap. Really well made and a great looking celtic pattern on it. It seems very sturdy and is also adjustable.

However, I had to send mine back as I could not get the button holes over the strap buttons on my guitar. They are quite small. I did receive excellent customer service from Jake at Dangleberry Music when returning the item though.

It's a shame it didnt fit as I would have loved to use it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great introduction to the play.The illustrations are spectacular and the speech sticks to the original text.
When compared to the 'Plain Text' version, the same illustrations are used in the same order only with different text.
This is extremely useful when helping people or students compare and translate the original text with modern English.

Still a great read and an amazing visualisation of the play when used on it's own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent way to introduce students to the play. Great for differentiation.
The illustrations are amazing and the Original text to Plain text translations are really accessible.

The only reason I would give it 4 stars is that the final 50 or so pages are (for some reason) printed at the front of the book, and then repeated again in their correct place. Strange.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Cruise Is Amazing!, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rock of Ages (DVD + UV Copy) (DVD)
I don't know how this wasn't and isn't more popular.
It's full of great versions of great songs. Some of these versions are better than the originals.
Tom Cruise is brilliant in it. Quite a good singer too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Takes A While To Get Going, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great watch and does exactly what it says on the tin.
However, I have found that it takes quite a while to pick up your bpm. I am usually about 20 minutes into a workout when it starts recording data. Usually speeds up the process if you're arm is a bit sweaty before you put it on.
