High quality, extremely portable and so a great guitar stand to take anywhere. So good, I'm ordering two more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only 4 stars because although it does give very good sound, particularly through the iOS App, there are some major concerns for me.

1. The connecting cable and joints into the two major components are very flimsy - secure enough now after just a couple of uses but I'm really not sure how well it will withstand a lot of handling. I appreciate that IK are trying to keep the profile low but it really is not a robust piece of kit. However there is a tiny case that offers some protection when not in use.
2. Because it attaches to the soundhole it does transmit all the sounds from the top surface of the guitar - moreso than any piezo pickup. So even if you don't want to be a percussive guitarist, you might just end up being one with this device.
3. The output socket is for a mini stereo Jack to a pair of headphones. To output the pickup to any external device, such as an amp or a PC/Mac, is very cumbersome - you either need to use a cable with a dedicated stereo mini-Jack to mono standard, or use a stereo min-jack to two mono standard jacks and leave one of them unplugged! Before I bought it, I looked at every review, looked at every picture but it was as if they were trying to hide its lack of connectivity.
4. Finally, it's not really geared to anything but GarageBand or Cubasis on iPad...

Having said all that, I wouldn't send it back because if you can accept all the above it does a creditable job

1.0 out of 5 stars A "no-charge" charger!, 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately, although it looked the part, this charger did not charge. So, having plugged it in to my Netbook when I was at 17% Battery and having set the Netbook to "hibernate", after 5 hours, I had no charge at all. I then turned off my Netbook and re-inserted the charger to the Netbook and to the mains supply (and yes, it was switched on), left it overnight and next morning I had exactly 0% charge! It has been returned for a refund. It could be a one-off faulty item but judging by some other reviews, maybe a faulty batch. They should be checked before dispatch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent multi- (and mini-) charger, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using this composite USB charger for 4-5 weeks at the time of posting. We have 6 iOS and Kindle devices between us plus bluetooth headphones - and travelling anywhere used to mean schlepping a six-gang extension lead (with attached cable) plus at least 4 or 5 USB chargers. This unit does the work of of all that kit more far more effectively and, a huge bonus when travelling abroad, at a fraction of the weight - and size - of all that kit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good CDs, Good DVD, Awful Print, 10 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good instruction CD and DVD but sadly let down by the very poor quality of the printed book. Every second pair of pages has not printed correctly and the print is very, very light indeed and the photographs, although not adding to the music, are extremely poor quality and badly printed too.

Thankfully, the pages on which the music is printed don't suffer too much from the pale print but it does mean you have to concentrate that much harder and it's still a shoddy piece of printing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what it pretends to be..., 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got a really excellent Qwiklok cable that I've used for a few years so I thought I would see if I could replicate it. Saw this cable and thought it was the same thing - wrooooong! It has "Qwiklok" on the plugs and "Professional low-noise instrument cable" printed on the cable and it looked OK when it arrived - metal plugs and robust cable - but when I plugged it in with my guitar, it was as if I'd loosed a 1,000 bees into the room. Creating a grounded instrument cable can't be rocket science and although this one says it's for "buget" musicians (perhaps the mis-spelling should have warned me that attention to detail wasn't a strong point) it's not the cheapest around. It's now been returned for a refund. I'll stick to Planet Waves cables in future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very limited use - doesn't do even half of what it claims., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The text is informative but very sadly, the huge number of links to "sound clips" that are meant to provide examples of the various effects and edits in Garage Band, simply do not work - neither through the QR codes in the Kindle book, nor through the URLs to which the QR codes point. All they do is take you to the main SoundCloud site where you will search but will be unable to find any of the clips referred to. Obviously, that issue will also affect the print version.
It's a real shame, but it's not even half a book. I have emailed the author to ask about this but he has not responded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Product OK, lots of reviewers need a brain upgrade, 27 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tone Tee T-shirt (Apparel)
OK... First niggle is not with the product but with many of the half-wits who have reviewed it. If anyone has read the publicity or seen the videos you *have to* expect them to be tight - it's how they work! Get a refund on your brains... Second niggle is that the Amazon website uses it's own generic size chart which does *not* correspond with the Tone-Tee site (e.g. If you are a size XXXL on the Amazon site you actually need a Tone-Tee XXL). Go to the Tone-Tee site for correct sizing!... The product only does what you expect it to; if you're fat, you have lumps... they only smooth out and flatten the lumps, they will not make them disappear, idiots.

The movement, the narrative, the worlds are all breathtakingly observed. There is more but I am unable to do that "more" any justice in such a small review but only remember, sei ikuru... "to live"
