Now that the holiday season is fast approaching, it is time again to think and plan what gifts to buy this Christmas for the kids. I am thinking of buying headphones, hmmm oh no maybe earphones? Geez, I am having a hard time, I caught up myself with headphones vs earphones, which one to choose. Anyway I have 2 or 3 weeks left, I know that everyone would be so happy if given some gifts. What do you think headphones or earphones? I guess I have to ask my daughter about it. On the other hand I may have to buy another headphone for my computer.
Just today I bought some new clothes for Faith and two piece for my eldest. Tomorrow Mj and I will go to the beach to attend a Christmas party for our team in swimming. Mj is so glad that we will come to the Christmas party, I mean at first I decided to just send the gifts because of work but since one of the parents will go back home in the afternoon so changed my mind, we will just go back home together with them. I am sure Mj is so excited it has been a while that she didn’t see her friends from the training, though I am not sure if she still want to be trained.
In a band, it is important for every instrument and every voice to be heard. Bass guitars need an amplifier to be heard given the low tones it resonates. Amps come in different sizes, designs and with additional functions. It is important to select the one that complements your bass guitar and provides the functions required to achieve the full bass sound that you require.
The bass guitar is meant to act as a background instrument to keep rhythm and add to the acoustic and electric guitar sound. It is not designed to be a stand-alone instrument, except where the bass rhythm is specifically written to be the focus.
For practices, a smaller output bass guitar amplifier is sufficient. Something between 18 and 36 amps is ideal. When it comes to performing at venues, a larger and louder option is ideal. For performances, consider amplifiers that are 40 amps and higher for maximum output.
Volume and Effect Knobs
Amplifiers come with built-in effects knobs and volume adjustments. Make sure you study the setup of the amplifier prior to purchasing it to make sure it has the effects you require for the type of music your band plays. It is also best to ensure that the knobs are labeled and easy to distinguish from one another to avoid confusion while playing a show.
You have to know what weight is comfortable for you to lift and carry. Amplifiers have thousands of parts inside of them. The cases are built to be sturdy to protect the sound elements and technical pieces inside. This adds to the overall weight of the amplifier. Amplifiers have handles for easy transport. Make sure that the dimensions of the amplifier will fit into the vehicle or equipment space allotted and that you can carry it without assistance.
Amplifiers help make music more exciting. As the bass guitarist keeps rhythm with the drummer, and the electric guitars “sing” the melodies, a band comes together in unity. It is important for every instrument to be heard individually, but it is even more important that those instruments blend together in perfect harmonies and rhythms. Always make the proper adjustments to the volume and effect knobs to blend seamlessly with the rest of the band.
Before you buy something unnecessary, try to check if you have a shoe bag that you can put in your bathroom door. This is to hold make up, toiletries, make up, and etc.
This is also for you to save money, see how much is the holder now, probably more than $500.00.
This would apply also when you plan shopping. Think it a million of times, if you really need to have something new or not. I know there are times that we also need to shop, at least it is one way for us to compensate ourselves from working so hard. Personally, I can also find it de-stressing, but as what I was saying, take it slow and budget your money.
