    Jackson DK2 Dinky - Eerie Dess Swirl - Nice instrument with good sounds

    by on 04-30-2016 09:36 PM I got this guitar in 2012 and I still have it. Mine is in trans black. It has the look you could expect for a 80's metal guitar. It could be a metal guitar, but it's more than that. these are the ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Gibson Les Paul Studio Faded 2016 T - Best Les Paul for the money!

    by on 04-27-2016 07:57 AM This guitar surprised me right from the start. My brother was on vacation in NYC and I asked him to buy me a 60's Tribute 2016 T (P90) but he misunderstood my request and he brought me this one. I ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Elypse Guitars Electra - Crate Electra standard les Paul style guitar

    by on 04-26-2016 02:59 PM These are junk. Don't get them mixed up with proper Electra guitars. The tuners, pickups, plastic nut and electronics are woeful. I had to spend a fortune to make it playable. Now it's passable...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Fender Road Worn '50s Precision Bass - Good Mexican bass for an old-school sound

    by on 04-25-2016 07:56 PM Some say Fender is overrated, but I really wanted THE ONE bass sound I could hear on the rock records that I listened to as a kid. Plus, I wanted a bass that was not needlessly complicated to use w...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Celestion Ditton 400 - As (positively) surprising as they're little-known

    by on 04-24-2016 03:20 AM These Ditton are an excellent surprise. While I bought them without getting any user review first, I found these speakers to be soft-sounding, powerful, very balanced, endowed with a real presence ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Fender Dave Murray Stratocaster 2015 - Right in your face!

    by on 04-24-2016 02:55 AM As far as I'm concerned, this guitar is a killer as I play genres ranging from rock to heavy metal - not thrash or black. For those latter musical styles, I think there are other models that are be...Read more on Audiofanzine

    PreSonus Studio One 3 Professional - Overall, a very good sequencer

    by on 04-24-2016 02:37 AM The third episode gets closer to perfection. I used to have Studio One version 1 but soon got rid of it due to its audio engine which was not CPU-friendly enough to my taste, and this version 3 is...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Moog Music Werkstatt-Ø1: Moogfest 2014 Kit - A cherry on the cake

    by on 04-23-2016 04:39 AM I use it in an amateur, recreative context. I like: - its punch, direct controls, modulation capacities, continuous signal VCA and mini-keyboard - really compact - the metal box (in this range ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Roland JD-XA - Inspiring! Very good sounds, but some notable flaws in design & ergonomics.

    by on 04-23-2016 04:21 AM Here’s my user review after a few weeks spent testing and using it. I hesitated between rating it 3 ½ or 4 stars, but still opted for 4. Unboxing: Once the synth out of its box and protective ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Acoustic 165 - Terrible amp

    by on 04-17-2016 10:34 AM Horrible amp. Poor copy of a Messa Boogie. Messa sued them and they went out of business. I could never get a good sound of of this thing. Looked great but a brittle clean sound, weighs a ton, ov...Read more on Audiofanzine

    by on 04-14-2016 09:01 AM A lot of great reviews with regard to functionality, however, now these are starting to age - I thought it was a good time to show how to repair one the most common problems - a failing data encode...Read more on Audiofanzine
