Vox Satchurator Pedal

VOX Amplification have always aligned themselves with musicians of equal legendary status. The very first VOX evangelist’s were The Shadows followed years later by The Beatles, Brian May of Queen, The Edge of U2 and many more famous artists. Their latest collaboration effort involves another legendary guitarist by the name of “Joe Satriani”, you’ve been living under a rock if you’ve never heard of him! Joe Satriani is easily one of the most successful guitar instrumentalists of all time and has garnered many awards and accolades over the years.

Em’s 4 Kids Ear Muffs

Our children are very precious to us and we take whatever precautions we can to protect them from any harm. One area often overlooked is hearing protection, simply because we don’t realise the effect loud sounds can have on younger children. Loud concerts, airshows and racing events are certainly not a good place for your kids to be without any ear protection. There are several options available on the market to protect their precious ears and one of the best products around are the “Em’s 4 Kids” Ear Muffs.

Hearing Protection

With the advent of Apple’s iPod and the hugely popular iPhone, there is no doubt that we are living in a new and exciting generation of technology. I must confess that I am a child of the “Walkman” era which consisted of cassette tape players and Dolby noise reduction…so high tech! To transport my entire cassette tape collection I would have needed a fairly large sized crate. Just imagine how much fun that would’ve been to drag onto a bus! Thanks to Apple we can now take our entire CD collection with us wherever we go, in a device so small that it can easily slip into your shirt pocket. As of April 2008 there have been over 150,000,000 iPods sold around the world, factor in the iPhone sales and you will begin to understand just how successful this market is!
