Blank Tab Sheets

         My XL blank tab sheets I use for writing out music.  Easier to read because of the size and labeled strings on the side.  Enjoy :)

My "Souped Up" Amp

          One part of being a guitar player that can get really interesting is exploring the DIY amp and stompbox route.  As part of a science fair project I built this amp and another one coming up soon.

          Anyone familiar with DIY amps must have heard of the "Smokey Amps" by Bruce Zinky.  These incredibly simple amps are supposed to actually get pretty decent sounds.  So I decided to put my own spin on one of these.

Fender Mustang I Review

          For $120, the Mustang I is pretty much the best amp for the money on the market.  The amount of effects and sounds available through Fender Fuse make it unbeatable.

          The Mustang has an 8" speaker and a 20 watt rating, which all on its own is plenty for small performances.  I have never cranked the volume all the way - just part of the way can get surprisingly loud.  Size is a manageable 14" x 15" x 7" and the build quality is what you would expect from a Fender.

Fender Frontman 10G Amp Review

          The Fender Frontman 10G is a small, portable 10 watt practice amp.  All good, but its low price shows through its lack of tonal variety.

Fender Squier Bullet Strat Review

          The Squier Bullet Stratocaster is a beginner's electric guitar modeled on the Fender Strat.  It costs on average about $130 and is a decent first guitar.

More after the break.
