Jazz IIIs will change your life (if you do it right)

Reviewed by on

They're a bit weird to get used to if you've only played with normal sized picks, but once you're used to it your playing will improve, they force you to play cleaner and they have very little impact on the tone since you're actually using less of the pick to play (unlike bigger picks that can sound "flappy").

Although I'm not a huge fan of nylon picks like this specific model.

Good Bass Strings in a Pinch

Perfectly fine if you just need strings for a bass kicking around the house, wouldn't want to use these if bass was my main instrument though, they're pretty rough.

Very pleased with these headphones

Reviewed by on

I bought these to replace my aging and decrepit Bose Triport headphones. I can honestly say that these sound better than the bose headphones which I considered fantastic. Yes they are not flat but they're pleasant to listen to. I intend to use them for some video editing and sound work and I use them for monitoring electric guitar while practicing. For these purposes they work great. I don't get any feeling of headcrush like I do with some headphones. They can become a little bit hot but they are incredibly comfortable. The ear cushions are great but if its really hot they do get a bit sweaty but then I'm not sure you can fully hold this against Presonus. They seem to have a fairly flat response curve but I honestly haven't tested and documentation regarding the response curve seems impossible to find (or it was when I bought these). They lose a star for being a little bit hot other than that I've been very happy.

poor pedal

Reviewed by on

I just received this pedal but I am unhappy with it for a number of reasons... firstly the supplied power supply does not have a fitting for SA plugs... moore importantly the presents are bizarre... switching from one to the other generates a completely different level so each time you switch you have to adjust the volume... this can't be useful if you are trying to use different tones for different songs... it negates about 90% of the functionality of the pedal... the drum sets are also weird....

They are ok if.....

Reviewed by on

If you want on-ear headphones that squeeze you like an evil Bond girl out for a fun night, cut off circulation to your earlobes and generally feel tight.. go for them. They are small and don't fit over your ear, but sit on top of the ear. The headband is tight, and hurt your ears after a while of use... the head band, while tight, also seems delicate so you are weary of opening them to fit over your head,, before they squeeze the bajeezus out of you. But i suppose they sound ok..

Thank you for my keyboard. I received it in very good condition and are happy with my purchase.
My only "issue" was that when I opened the box it didn't come with a AC adapter, wich I wasn't aware of as it wasn't mentioned on your website!

BUT, I do want to thank you very much for sending my order so fast. It came like 5 days earlier than estimated and my son was over the moon excited!!!

This pack has been my introduction to electric guitars (after playing acoustic more than 15 years ago). It includes pretty much everything you need to start, but you'll still need a tuner. The guitar has a nice weight to it, it's easy to handle, and the amp is also a great little device. Highly recommended for beginners.

Reviewed by on

One of the fastest deliveries on an order I placed to date. Pity the guitar arrived damaged after the 1st delivery but I have to say RARU's customer service is exceptional. A guy called Andrew assisted me getting a new one sent out. the whole process of sending one back a receiving another took just a week I hope the customer service bosses see this.

Regarding the guitar. You wont find a better sounding "cheap" guitar out there. Its got the authentic Tele sound you would expect from a R20 000 + American Telecaster. Its needs setting up though so add an additional few hundred Rand to have a professional look at the neck, intonation and action.

Thanks again for the awesome product and service.
