NUX Mighty Plug

Guitarists are fans of loud amplifiers and music in general, but this is not the case with all neighbors. 😆 I started silent practicing with plugging the headphones to my Fender Mustang and this worked well, of course, but I always had to seat close to the amplifier which was not that practical. By searching the Internet I found out about different Vox headphones amplifiers which offer just one kind of sound so if you want to have for example clean, blues and metal sounds, you need to buy three different devices.

Fender Mustang GTX100

Although my son had Fender Mustang I, I wanted more trendy amplifier with wi-fi and bluetooth features being able to download the effects and so on. After some research, I found out that there are two options, either Boss Katana or some newer Fender Mustang model. First I looked at the Fender GT series and later found out that there is even newer line, GTX. After reading some reviews and comparisons, I decided to get Mustang GTX50, but then I realized that more powerful model GTX100 comes with the GTX-7 foot switch and that the price difference is not that big.

Fender Play Subscription

As a beginner in playing guitar for the second time in my life, I searched for help online and found Fender Play service. I subscribed on the 1st of April and after 5 months of using it, I can really say that this is a great help for beginners, but once you reach medium level or you are close to it, it’s not that worth anymore. It is useful to learn some music theory although you can find much more details for free on YouTube.

Fender Made in Japan Modern Stratocaster HH

As I child, I dreamed of having real Stratocaster and the time has finally come. I looked online at many Strats but one special caught my eye. I didn’t want a vintage guitar, I develop modern software so I wanted a modern guitar as well. I respect the quality of stuff, so getting something made in Japan sounded really good. The decision was made and I ordered it. My dream came true on 17.

Midlife Guitar

I played guitar as a child, even performed at my primary school’s festival. So why did I actually stop playing guitar? At a time, guitars were really expensive and my parents bought me a beginners acoustic guitar which was quite bad even though it was still relatively expensive. The action was too high and this started being worse during the time. I figured out I could fix this a little bit by inserting a folded paper between the neck and the body which helped but it was still not good.
