2.0 out of 5 stars Quit after two years of use., August 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Quit after two years of daily use. While it worked, it was excellent and consistently reliable. Given the price of over three hundred dollars, it seems that it should last a minimum of five years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely glorious!, July 2, 2013
Wonderful playing throughout. The musicianship and technique is first-rate. I had never heard of Hungarian Brass Quintet until coming across a YouTube video of the Vivaldi/Bach on this arrangement ([...] and was very impressed. The trumpets weave together with a sound and style that is a delight to hear. Highly recommended. Wish there was an mp3 version....

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily hauls 20" to 29" wheeled bikes, June 29, 2013
I purchased this bike rack from my local bike store. It is simply fantastic! I was initially concerned about the plastic wheel supports, but they are heavy duty and look to hold up well. The frame is solid (but not excessively heavy), and because the hitch pin screws into place with a 3/4" socket, there is no play or noise while driving at highway speeds.

I'm using it with a 1 1/4" trailer hitch and can easily carry my daughter's 20" wheel bike as well as my 29" wheel mountain bike. The center post folds down to allow access to the back hatch. I'm using it on a 2007 Subaru Forester along with a CURT Manufacturing 12038 Class 2 Trailer Hitch, Pin and Clip and couldn't be more pleased.

It also is made in the U.S.A., which isn't reason alone to buy it, but it does make you feel good once you do. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great affordable hitch--worth every penny., June 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this for my 2007 Subaru Forester. Subaru dealership wanted over $400 for a Subaru brand hitch. I got this for $120, and it works great! Easy installation (thanks, YouTube) and good quality. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Method for Trumpet, Book 4 Tonguing Exercises and Etudes, June 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This may be my favorite volume of the Plog Method for Trumpet series. All seven books are expertly crafted and are idiomatic to the trumpet. I feel like these are like little notes from a master allowing the player to understand technical difficulties and overcome them with graded etudes that build upon one another.

These books are a part of my daily practice routine along with the Clarke Technical Studies.

I cannot recommend this enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best corded telephone headset on the market today, June 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It works great. The sound quality is great. It has a comfortable fit, and it typically lasts at least 2 to 3 years. We've tried other brands (Panasonic) and have been displeased. We don't buy anything else now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Plantronics equivalent, June 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this trying to find a better version of the Plantronics headset.

In short, it is not as good. The sound quality is worse. There is no additional benefit with volume. And most annoyingly, the foam covered microphone tends to drift into your mouth while you are speaking. If it wasn't for the hassle and expense of the return, I would return it. We bought a Plantronics headset a few weeks later to replace it. This one is now in the junk drawer as a backup in case the Plantronics gets unexpectedly broken or misplaced.

3.0 out of 5 stars Powdered version not nearly as good as the liquid creamer, June 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Every fall I look forward to having Pumpkin Spice flavored creamer.

When fall had come and went, I was still craving that flavor so I purchased this.

Meh. It's good, but it's not nearly as good as the liquid Coffee-mate creamer. I won't be buying it again--certainly not as a case of four canisters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality music publication, June 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Elegy for Organ (Paperback)
This is a lovely piece for organ that is not well known by name but it should be familiar to most. The cover and music typeset is well done. I performed it as part of a trumpet / organ recital (ala Alison Balsom & Quentin Thomas) and it was well received.

Lovely work. I will always remember and associate it with Princess Diana's funeral.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a refrigerator water filter--what more do you want?, June 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a refrigerator water filter. Provided you look up the correct model number and install it correctly, it is a good product.

Enough said.

Were you expecting something else?
