Uke for travel

Reviewed by on

I bought this uke for the sole intention to take it with me (pretty much everywhere). Because of it's [VERY] affordable price I was able to take it overseas, put stickers on it, and not care about bumps and bruises.
It's my 3rd uke, so I only use it when I'm not in town or want to take it somewhere. It is by no means a uke you should be wanting to play seriously.

Recommendations (for better sound):
Sound ain't great, so here are some pretty effective methods to better it.
- Buy better strings (I used daddario)
- Oil the whole thing (olive oil, sunflower oil etc. doesn't matter), and let it dry

Roland CM-30 Cube Monitor

Reviewed by on

I have owned and operated this pruduct for the past 9 years. I am a one man musician who uses backing tracks. This CM-30 is used for both my on stage monitor and in my studio when editing my backing tracks.
The CM-30 is a fantastic piece of equipment whether used as a monitor or in a studio as a playback mixer. I have even used as a powered mixer at a few small gigs. It has 3 channels, one with a XLR mic input.
The sound quality from the CM-30 is excellent. If the ratings had 10 stars I would give it a 10. I use many other Roland products and cannot fault their quality and reliability.

Great

Does what it says on the box, and attaches just about anywhere on any of my guitars. Have even used it on a ukelele. Pity it doesn't swivel, but the way it attaches allows it to be angled to a measure.

Great guitar bag

Reviewed by on

This is the second guitar bag, purchased for the newer and bigger guitar for my daughter. She stores her lesson notes and books in the front sleeve. The bag has a handle and straps to wear as a backpack for easier transporting. The build quality is great and there is sufficient cushioning for the guitar.

Future Star #2!

Reviewed by on

I purchase this Cort Guitar after my son had proven to me that he was dedicated to his music. I had purchased a "Squire stop dreaming start playing set-affinity-series-strat-hss-with-fender-frontman-15g-amp-electric" for him the year before (see review at this guitars site) and he Absolutely loved it and got involved with the school and Church bands (plus has a garage band going too).
He enjoys This Guitar because he can use it with the amp from the Squire set or simply on its own. Both guitars were bought at very decent discounted prices. Thanks Raru.

Future star!

Reviewed by on

My son started playing an old classical acoustic guitar at home so I decided to get him this guitar setup, which was at a very good discounted price. Guitar pack was delivered in just a few days. . He really enjoys the Guitar and the Amp helps when his not able to link into the school or church system. Yes, his in 2 bands plus his own garage band. He has taken another step by asking me for an Acoustic electrical guitar which I also purchased from Raru - a Cort MR500E OP Electric acoustic. (Also at a discounted price) Absolutely loves his Guitars. Thanks Raru for these prices as I might not have been able to 'afford' him the opportunity to take steps in his love for music. A keyboard may be next! :)

Hollow body guitar

Reviewed by on

This is quite a remarkable guitar, in style and feel. The flat body ensures no feedback with overdrive. Just don't turn the overdrive up too much, it's not an electric. The tones are a lot warmer and less sharp that solid bodies. The black looks amazing. It fits perfectly in a church setup. It's a 10/10

Great product. Awful service

Reviewed by on

I do take my hat off for big companies like Raru. A lot goes in to make it effortless for the client. But without any correspondence from Raru regarding a late shipment I can’t give full stars. Full stars for the product though. Thanks Andrew from the music dept. at Raru for eventually helping me. Great assistance pal!

Small and powerful!

Reviewed by on

The whole line of MXR bass pedals are very much worth it! Small and versatile, meaning that they won't take up space on your pedalboard. The distortion pedal has a great tone and is very adjustable. The metallic wine red is also a nice touch!

(please consider me to win the PS4 <3)

I've played a lot of Fender Jazz basses, and for it's price, the Squier Affinity Jazz Bass comes very close! Lovely, all-round tone with amazing pickups. Can definitely recommend this bass to beginners or people wanting to go into 5 string playing!
