MAGIX Music Maker 2013 Premium (Anniversary Special inkl. Music Studio)
MAGIX Music Maker 2013 Premium (Anniversary Special inkl. Music Studio)
Offered by ERSO-Media
Price: £19.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does a lot for the price, but two big disappointments. First, I couldn't find ANY saxes in ANY genre. Secondly, just about all the guitars had already been treated - and once the distortion's on you can't take it off again!


The Songs Of Carole King
The Songs Of Carole King
Offered by Discs4all
Price: £6.65

4.0 out of 5 stars A revealing collection, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the stuff you'd expect, plus a lot you might not, and much of the latter are real hidden treats. But some of the lesser-known tracks truly deserve to be just that - demonstrating that Goffin/King could churn out real stinkers as well as a stream of timeless classics!

3.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A modest but useful piece of kit for my home set-up, reasonably priced and promptly delivered. What more can one say?


King of the Blues Guitar
King of the Blues Guitar
Price: £4.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy as many as you can!, 22 Jun 2013
Owned this on vinyl (without bonus tracks) for 40+ years. At this price, don't just buy a copy for yourself - get hold of as many as you can and give them to your friends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had been a bit nervous about the fit, but needn't have been - it's nice and snug around my Fender.
And Amazon/Ashton must be pretty confident about its robustness - instead of the layers of corrugated cardboard, bubble-wrap and expanded polystyrene one gets used to with Amazon deliveries, this arrived simply gaffer-taped into the equivalent of a bin-bag!

1.0 out of 5 stars £120 for 21 tracks? Seriously?, 26 April 2013
Surely this is a typo! Collecting all MG's duet partners together on one CD sounds like a great concept - but not at £6 per track, for goodness sake!


Melody: How to Write Great Tunes
Melody: How to Write Great Tunes
by Rikky Rooksby
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great teacher!, 12 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now have several of Rikki Rooksby's books about song-writing and arranging, including this one. At this stage in my spare bedroom music-making, they're exactly what I need.
But Backbeat Books seem to have sacked all their proof-readers: all the books I've bought have far too many typos - some quite extraordinary - and format inconsistencies.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pound a page?, 12 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Chord WheelIngenious and clearly presented. But hugely overpriced at coming up a tenner for just 11 pages - a fat pamphlet, not a book!

Microphone Holder Studio
Microphone Holder Studio
Offered by Racksoy
Price: £11.74

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the adapter?, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microphone Holder Studio
Bought two for my Behringer C3s. Fits like a glove and does exactly what it says. The giant bulldog clip that provides the grip may be crude, but it's also effective and secure.
But knocked off two stars because the promised "adapter for 3/8 inch thread" was NOT included - as others have already commented. I don't need it, in fact, but if you never send it, don't promise it!
