Timetop Acoustic 5-Band EQ Equalizer Guitar Preamp Piezo Pickup LCD Tuner
Timetop Acoustic 5-Band EQ Equalizer Guitar Preamp Piezo Pickup LCD Tuner

5.0 out of 5 stars A good little unit to resurrect an old guitar with!, 1 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good little unit to resurrect an old guitar with! It arrived within a week and contained all the relevant parts- pre amp, power unit, piezo, scews etc. For fitting I would advise going on You Tube- there is a video done by Scott Lajoie that shows how to fit an pre amp unit similar to this. (All you need is masking tape, a drill, a hacksaw and stanley knife- just remember measure twice and cut once!) It took me two hours to fit ( I was being cautious) and it worked straight off.

The tuner has a nice large blue screen - it works chromatically and there is also a manual tuner as well. I checked it against a couple of electronic tuners that I own and it matched them. The power unit is sturdily built, better than a lot the one that guitar manufacturers their own guitars. The power lead from the power unit to the preamp has a good length to it so your not having to fight it when connecting it up.

I have used this with a Roland Cube amp and you do not have to turn the gain up to maximum or even turn the equaliser volume up high to get a good tone. So a nice, cost effective way to revive an old instrument.


PMS POP UP TENT 571002 PURPLE

3.0 out of 5 stars cheap disposable tent -, 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The tent is primarily for festivals that's why its cheap - its gives just enough shelter. The tent does pop up easily enough and its does come with 4 tent pegs and some guide ropes. However, the lip of material surrounding the zip gets caught in the zip a lot, and I do mean a lot. It snags very easily and jams up. The screen flap underneath suffers the same problem the zip catches in material surrounding the zip track very easily and gets stuck. So, treat this as cheap disposable shelter for a festival and you will be allright. If you want more, pay more.

4.0 out of 5 stars great tuner, 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tuner is all you require. I use it on acoustic & electric guitars. The clip used to attach it is strong so it does not shift. The head of the tuner can be angled so that you get the optimum view. The readout is very clear and precise and more importantly bright- you can see it in most conditions, particularly usefeul if you have to re-tune in dark conditions.
Although it costs less than others there is no lack of performance. However, it does not come with a 2032 battery fitted so I would advise buying some whilst your waiting for it to arrive

5.0 out of 5 stars great strings, 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used these before and they produce a deep resonant tone that rings out. (Because of the coating on the strings they tend to last a lot longer than the average phosphor bronze string.) The supplier packaged them well and they arrived within three days or ordering. Price was very good too.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant little guide, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is great for learning Blues stanadards eg Baby please don't go, Mannish boy, That's all right mama, King Bee etc. Good clear chords diagrams (though you may want to get a bulldog clip to hold the book open.) I downloaded some of the songs onto a kindle and with this book you can really start to play them.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant little amp, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having checked the reviews of this amp on the internet ( the reviews were universally positive) I decided to buy one. The price offered by Web Basket was by far the most competitive about 30 less than many others. I ordered it on Saturday evening and it arrived on the Wednesday. It came protectively packaged and all the accessories eg carrying strap and transformer were there. The amp itself is as good as they say, you have so many different amp models ( JC Clean, Classic Stack, blackline) to choose and with the effects, chorus, reverb, etc you can get so much more out of your playing. If you are guitar hobbyist or if you go busking then you need to get one.

A brilliant piece of soul- and has been sampled numerous times by other artists since. A great song from Stax sudios who broke the mould for integrated music in the 1960's.

This review is from: Layla (MP3 Download)
An great variant on Eric Claptons classic song. I bought this track as I am currently trying to learn how to play it- nice to have on a play list with a Kindle as you play along to it and repeat and repeat and repeat.... and as its the slower version it give you time to get those chords right.

This review is from: Robot Hive/Exodus (Audio CD)
If you like bluesy, gutsy rock then you will like this in some ways reminds me of Audioslave. The first track, Mr Flannery, sounds as if it accompany an episode of Breaking Bad.
