Couldn't help but feel good after watching that. Your Uke sounds great mate.   Just quietly you nailed the vocals also.   I never really listened to the lyrics of that song until now.   The chorus I knew,  like the entire planet but, she actually left him,  to love another!  Not sure she'd be my sunshine after doing that.     You are a......... a rotten..  lol.

Plenty of good times at Brian's place with that little gem of a Uke.  Just waiting on the invite.   Sub'd to your yt channel, can't believe I wasn't already.   Cool vid mate,  you look like a pro, your genuine laugh at the end wrapped it up perfectly.

Not completely - but close! I just bent it the other way to unfold it as much as I could, and the spiral binding will make it work fine. I blame Canada Post not JG so no complaints from me 😃

I love the T-shirts. My favourite is the 2nd one. You'll enjoy the Christmas song book. I bought it last year and it's great. Happy to say Canada Post delivered mine in pristine condition. LOL

Been a while since I bought something but recently I bought a little metal amp.

I saw a bunch of (suprisingly?) good reviews about this unit and samples rendered me intrigued and curious.

Joyo Bantamp "Zombie" | €155 b-stock
(proably a returned unit, nothing wrong with it)



I'd never believe it would be any good but I wanted to try something that brings some bass to the party.
I can run a bunch of great effects through my Fender blues deluxe but the bass coming out of my power amp section tends to become somewhat farty when going louder when playing metal. Was it my power amp? was it just my speaker? (other speaker than original but it had same issue).

a €160 power amp, even though solid state with a single tune in the preamp, might answer that.
I didn't test the bluetooth and headphone yet but I hooked it up with my single 12 celestion speaker in my Fender Blues Deluxe amp.

Joyo isn't really known for high end stuff but this 20w solid state unit is a full blown amp with effects loop, headphones and bluetooth connection. Clean and driven channel.
I bought this with the experiment in mind and perhaps having a backup preamp+poweramp+distortion in a lunchbox size; handy for if one of the bandmates amps explodes on stage.

Actually, i was kinda blown away with how LOUD this baby goes. 20W solid state and 1x12" speaker.
I tested it in our rehearsal room. the clean channel isn't wow if you're used to a decent Fender but it's neutral and usuable for pedals and cleaner stuff. It wasn't bad, certainly not.

The overdrive channel is brutal!
Loud but also very usable; I wouldn't mind giggign with this in a hard rock/ (heavy) metal band!
Never expected it to go so loud and puck this much punch.
pleasantly surprised!

Some rather put a drive pedal in front of it but I tested it with a high output pickup designed for metal styles so it felt good at was. Tried an EQ pedal in the effects loop but the single tone knob on the front panel simply did what it needed to be.

I'll probably build (or let sombebody build) a mini cabinet round the spare 12" I have lying around, just for this amp :)

It's a wonder I still have a wife, but I just took delivery of this one. Yes, it's NAD again for me. This time it's the last one I need... for sure... ;)

Kasper, when are you going to set up a studio / rehearsal room, sort out a nearby hostel and arrange a forum meet up?
Oh man!
Such a collection you have.

Nice - I could go for a smaller bodied acoustic ... in my dreams.

Yeah, I really like the OM size. Basically a OOO body, but with the same nut width and scale length as a dreadnought. Feels nice to play and sounds amazing: really balanced and rich overtones.

The OM-35 I got is an OM-35E with the Fishman Aura VT Enhance electronics. I'm still playing with that to learn how to best use it, but it's pretty good. I still prefer mic'ing up, but the electronics sound better than my other guitars.

That's about as good as it gets right there.  Beautiful guitar and obviously it sounds amazing.   One of these OM-35's and/or  a 000-28 have been on my wish list for a long time.    Congrats on this beauty.

Thanks! She's a keeper, for certain.
