5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice ligature, May 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like this ligature a lot and it's far, far superior to the one that came with my sax (an Antigua Pro One alto). It might not fit all mouthpieces, but it fits a Vandoren V16 A6 mouthpiece fine, which is what I use. It's very easy to use. I love the fact that the screw mechanism turns so easily and feels very high quality. It does fit snugly, but I like that, because you don't need to spend much time loosening or tightening it, since it already goes on pretty snug. Nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great place to start when upgrading your mouthpiece., May 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After buying my first sax (an Antigua Pro One alto) and doing a bit of research, I realized I would need to upgrade the mouthpiece, since the mouthpiece is a critical component of playability and tone. I went to a few shops and asked around, in addition to reading online. This is a highly recommended mouthpiece to start with. The Vandoren V16 is well respected and seen as a great starting point for people wanting to explore quality mouthpieces. Hard rubber is recommended for beginners as metal can be harder to control. I was told a 6 or 6* is generally a good place to start in terms of size. Upon getting my mouthpiece, I found that the sax was easier to play, I had far better control of the low notes, and also a richer, fatter tone overall. You need to pair your reed to your mouthpiece. In this case, with this mouthpiece, a Vandoren 3 works well for me. I also got the leather Vandoren ligature, which fits really nicely on this mouthpiece and is easy to use and also looks great. If you can't try out a lot of mouthpieces (which is hard to do), this would be a good bet.

This review is from: The Jazz Piano Book (Spiral-bound)
This book is incredible. A treasure trove of information. I am working through it slowly, generally only a page or two a day at most, and it is very good.

Got this to replace the Boss RC-30 Looper pedal. This is in many ways more flexible and professional as a product, although you cannot save loops.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I echo the sentiments of the other reviewers. This book is magnificent and a great value. Not only does it contain hundreds of incredible photographs, it organizes them intelligently and contains a wealth of information in the form of essays and interviews. It's not just your typical coffee-table book but a series reference on the life of this remarkable man. The only drawback is that it is so informative and so packed with information and photos that you may find it a bit intimidating at first! But it is something that can be enjoyed for a long time. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, May 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Okay, there's a reason why 19 out of 20 reviewers have given this box set 5 stars.

First of all, and most importantly, the music is incredible, beautiful, powerful, jaw-droppingly amazing. If you have even a minimal appreciation for Hendrix, blues guitar, SRV, or... well... music, you really should consider getting this. I wanted to start with the good stuff (yes, I am impatient) and threw on the last LP from the set. As "Red House" blared from my speakers, I was in awe...

Second, what is the deal with this price? This set would be well worth it at twice the price. At around sixty dollars, it's a complete steal. Eight LP's of very high quality, a wonderful booklet with some great pictures, and previously unreleased music -- really, really good music... I'm very happy I got this.

This set just emphasizes even more what a tragedy it was that he died when he did. Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and very quiet, May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Air purifiers are a real must if you live in a city or polluted environment, or if you suffer from allergies.

We have tried three high-end air purifiers: IQ Air, Electrolux and Rabbit Air. The IQ air has served us very well for two years and was a great buy. Its downsides are that it is very large and a bit loud (extremely loud on the high settings, and tolerable at the lower settings -- you can sleep with it on setting 1 or 2, but it is still clearly audible). Electrolux was awful. It fell apart within two days and actually stopped working altogether, so we returned it quickly.

Rabbit Air is actually the best of the bunch. The price is very reasonable for what you get, and it is dead quiet on its lower settings. I was almost concerned that it wasn't working -- it was so quiet! But it is purifying the air and creating nice, clean, "sweet" air. The auto setting is great. It's also sleek, relatively small and light. Highly recommended.
