Zoom Q2HD

Zoom Q2HDThe video is ok  but the sound quality is pretty nice. I bought mainly for you tube clips for my nephew he is getting killer on the bass. I have recorded a few concerts with it and sounds pretty killer and is easier to control the clipping I thought than the Q3. Most of my YouTube clips are recorded with the Zoom Q2HD video. I find the Q2HD just so easy to use, and I use it more often. The Zoom video recorded is great for recording kids’ school performances. I got my classic zoom q2hd at Musicians Friend.

Acoustic Bass Case

gl bassGator makes a nice cross between a gig bag and a hard case called GL-BASS case. You can get them for less than 140 bucks and they are really sturdy and great for storing instruments under beds and in closets etc. They offer much better support than your typical gig bag. Investing in a Bass Guitar Cases is good idea if you’ll be gigging/practicing in other places, for moving all your stuff between home and school, and for just giving you some peace of mind.

MXR 10 Band EQ

MXR 10 band eqThe MXR 10 band eq is a great pedal and the MXR does not run on batteries, it is 18v and you have to consider that when you setup.

Lots of gain, great adjustability in the lows/ low mids. I like the mxr 10 band eq at musicians friend than my other equalizers better for this reason, more adjustability, easier to pinpoint a certain freq, or raise/lower  a “shelf”.

It is real good at adjusting your normal setup for diff rooms, but I can do that with my pre-amp.

Again Great pedal, one of the nicest EQ pdals I’ve used.
