Secrets to Choosing A Digital Piano For You

By Alexis Andrews
November 18, 2008

So you find yourself at InstrumentPro.com, armed with InstrumentPro.com coupon codes, ready to buy your first-ever digital piano and tickle its ivory keys. Before making that musical instrument purchase, however, make sure you have carefully considered all the important factors when shopping for a digital piano. If you don’t know what they are, then read this article first.

Why a digital piano? Are you sufficiently aware of its differences from and advantages over the traditional acoustic piano? A digital piano is an electronic instrument that reproduces piano sounds – but without the hammers, strings, soundboards, and the need for tuning. What it normally has instead are electronic sound chips and speakers, as well as various keyboard and instrument sounds (like that of strings, flutes, percussions, harpsichords, organs, etc.) and built-in rhythm capabilities. A digital piano also allows you the option to record your performance or, with accompanying headphones, practice in private – so you won’t disturb your neighbors.

Of course a digital piano, no matter how expensive, does not come without disadvantages. It may be good for beginners, but it does not provide enough features and authenticity for advanced piano techniques and skills as an acoustic piano can provide. It comes with weighted keys, but these keys aren’t always as responsive as you’d expect, which should prove to be a major detriment to those who wish to become virtuoso piano players.

There are other concerns which you should keep in mind when looking for a good digital piano, such as range, sound, polyphony, design, and speaker system. Range is important because you would want your keyboard to respond to velocity dynamically and properly – which means that the timbre changes according to whether you are playing the piano loudly or softly. Sound, of course, is essential because a digital piano’s sound isn’t always as natural as that of an acoustic piano; make sure that you get a piano that times your notes and chords properly, without letting the sound decay into silence a split second too soon. Polyphony is important because a good digital piano acoustically masks notes, and not drop them abruptly while you are playing multiple notes or big, complex chords. Design, of course, refers not to how sleek your digital piano looks (although that may be a factor to you), but to how easy and convenient it is to use the control panel; after all, you don’t want to change instrument settings by accident while you’re trying to record a song. Lastly, a digital piano’s speaker system is crucial. With a powerful speaker, you can get that balanced sound that’s similar to acoustic, without the obvious straining of notes.

InstumentPro.com has a great selection of digital pianos from brands like Yamaha, Roland, Korg, Casio, and M-Audio. Prices range from less than $100 to $1000 or more, but of course you will have the option to use InstrumentPro.com coupon codes to save on the best deals. That way, the cost of your first digital piano will be in perfect tune with your finances.

Secrets to Choosing A Digital Piano For You

How to Choose an Acoustic Guitar For You

By Alexis Andrews
November 01, 2008

When I made the decision, a few years back, to learn how to play the guitar, I was faced with having to make an important choice – and from too many that were being presented to me. I had wanted an acoustic guitar, but there were numerous types and brands and manufacturers in the market that, being a beginner, I had trouble settling on one that I felt would be right for me. So I scoured the Internet, read dozens of product reviews, looked at various guitar retailers’ websites, collected online coupons (I was on a tight budget), and – in the process – discovered key tips and advice on shopping for acoustic guitars. I would like to share some of them with you.

Strings, strings, strings. I cannot emphasize this enough. If you care about the sound of your strumming and plucking and picking, then scrutinize very closely the strings of the acoustic guitar that you are looking at. Nylon is best suited for soft tunes, such as pop, folk, Latin, and classical songs; it is also more gentle on the fingers. On the other hand, a guitar with steel strings is your best bet if you are more inclined to playing rock and country songs. As an individual player, do a touch test of the guitar before deciding on your purchase. Strum it and listen carefully, because strings are such an important aspect of how a guitar fits your own intuitive feel, tonal preferences, and, of course, fingertips.

Wood, wood, wood. And I am not talking about the design here. Guitars come in a variety of wood materials, patterns, engravings, bindings, and ornaments, but if they weren’t cut properly or dried before being molded into guitar shape then you can only expect them to produce poor sound quality. Find a manufacturer or retailer that seasoned guitarists trust. As for wood types, a solid spruce top is more durable than a plywood or two-piece one. Guitars with mahogany backs and sides, meanwhile, produce a lighter tone than do guitars made of rosewood backs and sides. Try to understand the differences as best as you can, because – while strings can be replaced – the wood on your acoustic guitar cannot.

Consider bridge and action. The guitar bridge is where the sound vibrations come from, and it supports the transmission of these vibrations to the chamber. It is the means by which strings vibrate freely and efficiently to a larger surface. Scrutinize the bridge closely and see what conveniences (and limitations) it presents on your logistical and technical concerns, such as string buzz, compatibility with pickups, etc. Action, meanwhile, is the space between the strings of the guitar and its neck. If you are only beginning to learn how to play the instrument, then be sure to choose a guitar that has relatively low action. That way, your fingers won’t be distracted by the effort of having to reach for the strings.

Shop in person, but buy online. After getting a feel of the guitar, check out the websites that are selling the specific model that you are eyeing. You’ll be surprised to find that the best and most affordable deals are online. Guitar Center, Guitar Trader, and InstrumentPro.com also offer helpful guides and online coupons for their customers.

These Coupon Codes Will Make You The Next Guitar Hero

Has a string of drunken karaoke nights reinforced your desire to be the next guitar hero? Don’t worry. It’s never too late to wonder what it would be like to have a flourishing musical (read: rock star) career. And with coupon codes abound to help us save big on ambitious guitar purchases, it’s never going to be too expensive.

Take me, for example. I have been blinded by interminable visions of myself on some sort of stage, seated on some sort of stool with some sort of guitar in my hands, reveling in hot spotlight and wiping beads of sweat off of my forehead before muttering something about what had inspired the next number. (“So there I was, at rock bottom, all around me these breasts heaving on free-flowing draft beer night – when suddenly, an epiphany...") And I have just as well been visualizing myself in noiseless repose on a bathroom floor, with pen and paper and a clumsy rhyme – you know, the alleged behind-the-scenes stuff that independently made music videos have led us to believe. I do have other rather liquid scenarios in mind, all of them less probable than a forty-five-minute set at an empty biker cafe and none more thought-through than my first ever trip to a tattoo parlor.

Luckily, I went online and discovered the money-saving power of coupon codes for musical instruments. I realized that making rock music was not quite as expensive I had imagined. From a list of stores made available on the Internet, I found a wide range of products to equip me in pursuing my dream: from electronic, acoustic, and fender guitars, bass guitars, drums and percussions, digital pianos, and power amplifiers, to digital workstations and portastudios, digital mixers, wireless microphones, distortion pedals, and audio and lighting sets. But I’m not going to buy compulsively; after much research and contemplation, I have narrowed down my first possible guitar purchase to two choices, from two stores.

Guitar Trader promotional codes entitle shoppers to save big on purchases from one of the largest and most respected sources of professional audio and guitar equipment in America. I particularly liked the six-string Taylor Ovangkol/ Sitka Acoustic Guitar that they are selling on their website; it is high-end but still affordable. And its simple, classic looks balance out my flamboyant personality. With coupon codes, not only will the store slice more than $500 off the original price – they will also ship the guitar to me for free.

Meanwhile, if I am looking to be more conservative and shop for a nylon string and classical guitar, I shall take advantage of the Guitar Center coupon codes. Their very affordable Takamine EG128SC G Series Acoustic-Electric Classical Guitar features traditional Spanish design and a cutaway body style to provide greater fretboard access. This guitar, I can play in any setting: in a small room, in a studio, maybe even (hopefully) on stage. It is ridiculously cheap, too. For a total of $400 I can have it shipped to me for free. Anyway, no matter what I choose between the two, I am determined to be the next guitar hero.

A Day in the Life of A Guitarist

By Alexis Andrews
September 04, 2008

Six o’clock, and with it comes a beautiful fall morning and a pretty nasty hangover. While the homecoming party last night was memorable, I have no time to reminisce. This figures to be a pretty busy day. I take an aspirin, drink an orange juice, and take my trusty old Yamaha acoustic guitar from my closet. I bought it online from Amazon two months ago, and because I used coupon codes it came with an aluminum pick and was shipped for free.

Eight-thirty: I have been practicing the tabs of this Rufus Wainwright song – as well as some original compositions – for over two hours now. My band mates haven’t yet called; we are all supposed to meet after lunch to rehearse for the gig tonight at a local bistro called The House of Blues. They’re probably all still asleep, with the exception of Andrew, who is the most diligent harmonica player I’ve ever known.

Ten-twenty: After my Communications Theory class, I pull out my cell phone to read the text message I’ve been waiting for. “Let’s meet at Tony’s house 1 pm. See you later." Tony is our lead vocalist, he has a really powerful rock star voice, but I don’t think he realizes how good he is. Oh – he also has a neat house and a makeshift recording studio in his basement with a lot of awesome audio equipment and hi-tech effects pedals.

Twelve noon: I have just had lunch (a four-inch BLT sandwich), and before I drive all the way to Tony’s house, I first check in at the library to look up something on the Internet. Andrew had E-mailed me something he saw at the Guitar Center website; it was a combo amp that might work well with my guitar. I find out that if I use coupon codes I can slash down the price from $150 to $100 – a good deal, considering that it’s one of the most popular brands for musicians and audiophiles, Crate. Anyway, I also chat online briefly with my girlfriend Jenny, who I hope will show up to watch us tonight.

One-thirty: We’re feeling it. Tony is in his element, Andrew is showing off some new musical stylings, Richard at the keyboards is striking complicated but breathtakingly pretty chords, and I am plucking and twanging away like Johnny Lang who has drunk too much caffeine. I love making music, and it makes it even all the more worthwhile with a group of friends who are so dedicated to the craft – and who don’t worry too much about talent fees.

Five in the afternoon, and we are all headed to The House of Blues. I like the place not only because they serve some tasty barbecue, but also because they have an addictive pinball machine right by the cocktail bar and the owner lets performers like us play for free. But Jenny’s not yet here, I’m afraid. “Still in Starbucks, having coffee with girlfriends," her text message reads. Well, that or she’s compulsively scouring the Internet again for Victoria’s Secret coupon codes.

Nine-thirty: Our one-hour set is almost over. For the first time we perform “Teasingly Hazel Eyes" – a song I wrote as a tribute to Jenny. Yes, she did show up, and she clapped louder than the rest of them. As I get off the stage with Tony, Richard, Andrew, and my beloved guitar, I immediately walk up towards my girl and give her a kiss.
