  1. Sonic Foundry Sound Forge ·
    I find this program very useful to me. It has actually excited me into writing stuff so I can record and play with the mixer and fx. i don't know about anyone else, but I think this is definately a go-getter.

  2. Vox v9158 Pathfinder ·
    This was the cheapest amp at the store. This could use some tube-age and more volume without having to crank the gain. Its light, portable. Great for begginners/ backstage warmup/ jamming with friends.

  3. Ibanez GAX70 ·
    My final 2 choices were this guitar and a grx40. I chose this one because at the time I refused to get a guitar with single coils, but this guitar serves me well.

  5. Boss SD-1 Super OverDrive ·
    Its been compared to a tubescreamer only better, which is why I chose it. If stolen I'd get it again as long as it were the same price or cheaper. GOOD: It has a WIDE sonic range. Its cheap(price not quality) BAD: I've heard it can suck battery ...(more)

  6. Undiscovered Soul by Richie Sambora ·
    This recording, which I just got yesterday, is one of the better "band guitarist goes solo" albums I've heard. My favorite songs on it are "in it for love" and "Made in America". If you like richie's work in bon jovi, definately check this out...(more)

  8. DIY Tube Amps ·
    Its useful if you're into building your own equipment. They include packages you can purchase with components to build your own amps and sound samples of other amps customers have built.

  9. Eric Clapton Signature Licks ·
    With a cd included so you can play along, the book is great for any clapton fans. the cd has separate channels for rythm and leads so you can practice with the solo part then switch to rythm and be the star of the show.

  10. Carlos Santana Signature Licks ·
    This book, like other signature licks volumes, contains passages from Santana. It comes with a cd to play along with, though its a little difficult for myself. I would like to have seen more newer titles from the supernatural album, but it'll ...(more)

  11. Reload by Metallica ·
    I don't like to compare albums. This record had many good things going for it and kept my attention throughout. Good riffs, good vocals, good basslines, good drummming. 4 stars from an overall music fan.

  12. Absolute Benson by George Benson ·
    I got this as a christmas gift after seeing George in concert on pbs. I was really intrigued watching him but the album just wasn't quite the same. However, putting this aside I found the album to be pretty good. I 'd say 3.3 stars but tenths a...(more)

  14. Boss CH-1 Super Chorus ·
    I wanted a chorus, so I got this on ebay. I also considered a boss chorus ensemble, danelectro cool cat, dod ice box. I'm glad I got this one. If I could get it for the same price or better, I would but it again if it were lost or stolen.

  15. Jay Turser JT-LT ·
    I bought this accidently on ebay, put opening bid on it, nobody else bid. I'd get another, especially if was $90 too. Wouldn't hesitate to get another Turser as well.
