PRS Birds Leather Guitar Strap Tan

This review is from: PRS Birds Leather Guitar Strap Tan
As a strap I suppose it works, but the quality of the leather is very poor in some areas and it's not something that I would want to put on any decent guitar. I actually bought the strap for a custom PRS guitar but it is a very shoddy accessory for such an expensive instrument. I'll be sticking to a plain black Sure Lock strap. The PRS strap costs £49 but isn't worth a tenth of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inexpensive and quirky way to keep doors open, 9 April 2015

Our first chicken doorstop was bought for us as a gift. It's a great value product and works well as a door stop. So we bought another 2 of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 out of 10, 21 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to install and set up with the numbers you want to block (specific numbers, Out of Area etc). I connected It yesterday and it really seems to work. Today, Friday, is normally a busy day for nuisance calls, but our phone has rung only twice so far - once for a legitimate call, and the other one telling my about PPI. I like the big red 'Block Now' button, and thoroughly enjoyed pressing it. The display on the Call Blocker now says that it blocked 14 calls.

After plugging in the device for the first time yesterday, it was not allowing any calls to get through. The support centre in Swansea were very helpful and pinpointed to the problem to the cheap brand of ADSL filter supplied by our ISP. Swapping to a better quality of ADSL filter solved that issue.

Until now we've tried using the call blocking function on our Panasonic DECT phone, but with room only for around 20-30 active numbers, the nuisance calls kept getting through. The Call Blocker has 200 numbers already programmed in. I've added 7, so I still have room for another 993 numbers !

If today's peace and quiet is repeated in the future, I will consider The CPR 1200 one of the best buys I've made for a long while.

A delightful album with great new material. She already has some amazing songs for encores when she plays live. I think that she now has another 11 songs that are set to become Julie Fowlis 'standards'.


Snark Guitar, Bass and Violin Clip On Tuner
Snark Guitar, Bass and Violin Clip On Tuner
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant tuner with a great bright display, 13 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great value tuner that works better for me than some quite expensive clip-on versions. With its simple, bright display the Snark is a very quick and easy to use - especially handy if you have only seconds to tune up on a stage. Unlike some tuners with dim LCD displays, there's no risk of leaving the Snark switched on accidentally. Hence the batteries last for months. Definitely recommended.


G7th Performance 2 Steel String Guitar Capo for 6-String Electric/Acoustic Guitar
G7th Performance 2 Steel String Guitar Capo for 6-String Electric/Acoustic Guitar
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Tried a few capos - the G7th is superb, 13 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very easy to clip on and release. I now have three G7th capos which I use on a mix of acoustic and electro-acoustic guitars. No problems with tone or buzzing strings, and once you clip them onto the guitar neck they stay put - and their slimness means that they never get in the way. The G7th capo is not cheap, but it is the best and I'd recommend the G7th to any player.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good warm jacket, 13 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Other reviewers have said how good the jacket is, and I agree with all they've said. I wanted a rugged warm jacket for working outdoors and walking the dog, so the M65 fits the bill very well. My advice would be to order a size smaller than you usually take in clothes. With a 44" chest, most Large sizes fit me fine. However, that put me into the XL size range for the M65 jacket - so I ordered a size down (the Large). Wrong ! It was way too big. I sent that back and requested a Medium and that is a perfect fit. Full marks go to Elliot for his excellent communication and support in getting the correct jacket - and for his rapid replies to emails - he even replied to me on a Sunday night ! I will definitely be buying more from this seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value - and it works really well, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have said - I just plugged in the TP-Link switch and it worked. For the money, it's a superb little box. Two patch cables are included in the box, but these are CAT 5 standard. Luckily, my techy friends had warned me in advance that I needed CAT 6 standard cable to support a gigabit network properly.
