The Mapex Drums guitar center collection has quite a few options from drum kits. Ranging from the Voyager and Horizon series, the intermediate Meridian Birch and Meridian Maple, and the professional level Saturn and Orion to the Black Panther snare drums, which introduced limited editions of drum kits based on those snares. As of February 2012, three models were produced: The Blaster, The Velvetone and The Retrosonic. Basically the best you can get with the limited edition ones, but kits for all ranges of apptitude.
Banjos are basically the instrument you only think of with the song “Dueling Banjos” coming to mind right? That crazy scene in Deliverance in the woods maybe? No, no, no…banjos are a much greater instrument than to hear a couple guys battling with dueling banjos.
Banjos are the backbone of bluegrass music and what you need if you really want to play some great bluegrass. They take a lot more talent to play than most realize. It has a unique sound of that twang and you can really get the foot tapping with a banjo.
The beyerdynamic dt 770 pro from guitar center are the all purpose media headphones. They sound great with music, gaming, and videos on your computer. Watching movies, TV, or just plain music. They have extreme bass, with noise cancelling design so that you can mix, or just listen without the distraction of outside sounds. Nothing better than the immersion you can get from a professional style headphone and these definitely fit that mold.
Nothing better to rock your electric guitar and other musical equipment for your band than to filter them through Peavey speakers at Musicians friend. Peavy does a great job of building high quality speakers for the musician that isn’t always a rock star yet. You can still pump out professional sound at a price even a novice can afford who is just starting out.
Although my first guitar was some crappy GTX that I only bought because it had some awesome lightning bolt paint job on it (I wanted to be like Metallica “Ride the Lightning”), I have used almost exclusively Fender electric guitars. They are just the ones I feel most comfortable with, and they have the sound I want. I feel like I can play much clearer and with more of a smoothness on their necks than I could with any others. Something I didn’t realize until I started to play an actual good guitar. The cheaper ones have a very clunky feel to them IMO. The strings aren’t as smooth in how they move, and the necks just don’t feel “right”. Fenders always feel right.
