Douglas Hadron 727

Neewer Microphone Stand 
Now I'm not yet much of a vocalist myself, but I'm building up my array of recording gear to help me get there.  
This mic stand and pop filter made by Neewer that I recently picked up is a pretty nice piece of kit to take your recording to the next level at a low price.

Full review after the break!

Custom Desktop Wallpaper Background HD Digital Camouflage

Urban Stone Digital Sapphire Supernova Desktop Background HD

A couple HD variations on a digital camouflage pattern I'm working on - the original color scheme is still under wraps for the time being, but the alternate color schemes are just as cool.

I formatted these perfectly for widescreen desktops and currently use the "Sapphire Supernova" design myself, enjoy!
