Most-Loved Electric Guitar: Fender '72 Telecaster Thinline

Our Customers Say...
"I fell in love with this guitar the moment my eyes crossed it at another store. Always wanted it...you can get a beautiful Tele sound from the pickups, and also a heavier sound, due to the double humbuckers. So, not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but it sounds great as well, with many tone options...I would recommend this guitar to anyone that's thinking about buying it." - Kasey Frazier in Killeen, TX

"It's a wonderful guitar that has a fat tone because of the humbuckers and a slight jazz feel to the timbre because of the semi-hollow body. If you're looking for a Fender but want versatility in sound, this is what you're looking for...I LOVE THIS GUITAR. Look no further. This has everything you want. Country, blues, rock, jazz... you can even get a dang sweet metal crunch out of it. What more could you want???"

"I opened up the box and there it was, just gleaming in its natural finish. I picked it up and immediately noticed how light it was, but when I started playing it, what I noticed was not only could you make it sound like a traditional Telecaster, but could adjust the tone to play any type of music your heart desires." -- Ray Smith in Buckeye, AZ

Most-Loved Acoustic-Electric Guitar: Martin DRS1 Road Series

Our Customers Say...
"Love this guitar! The sound quality is outstanding right out of the box. A quick tune and I was playing better than I have in years...I was blown away with this guitar. This is a guitar I will hold onto for the rest of my life." - Greg Garschagen in Wales Township, MI

"This guitar is clear and deep sounding...A very expressive guitar with a sweet and very Martin-like sound....It is very hard for me to stop playing this guitar...I love the simplistic beauty of this guitar -- no bling, just beautiful wood grain!...It would take a great and very expensive guitar to make me give this one up!"

"You will be amazed with this guitar! Just rings, absolutely beautiful Martin sound...Plays like butter. Excellent action, smooth, no fret buzz, perfect alignment...This is a keeper for life as far as I am concerned."

Most-Loved Amp: Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus

Our Customers Say...
"It does two things well: stay clean at high volumes and contains the most sought-after chorus effect by guitarists...If you know what it does, and you can find it at a good price, then this machine is uber sexy. I've always loved the way it looked...I'm NEVER going to sell this."

"I get ultra-clean tone that cuts through the air in a club...The chorus effect is amazing...When I think of the abuse and travel that little amp has seen, I know this is a quality product. I am looking forward to many more great-sounding years with the JC-120."

"This is by far the best sounding solid-state amp I've ever played. There are few solid-state amps out there that are worth playing around with, but this amp is worth owning for life."

Most-Loved Drums: Gretsch CM1E826 Catalina Maple Shell Kit

Our Customers Say...
"A work of art! I've always wanted an old-school kit and finally decided on these bad boys. They are simply a thing of beauty! The sound of the 7-ply maple shells really stands out...quite versatile and easy to tune. No shortcuts taken with this kit, it's very well made with much detail and the hardware is top- notch. I'm totally ecstatic with my choice and would highly recommend this product to anyone!" -- Bob B in Warwick, RI

"WOW! This drum set is awesome, from the detail put into it and the finish, all the way to the sound it puts out. I will be using this set for as long as it will let me."

"These drums sound AMAZING. I still have the stock heads on (except for the bass drum) and they still sound great! (Thanks Remo!) Warm tone, nice attack, LOUD...Every time I see this drum set it is visually stunning. The Silver Sparkle finish stands out beautifully. The chrome hardware complements the finish beautifully. This is the best drum set I have ever owned."

Most-Loved Bass: Schecter Stiletto Custom

Our Customers Say...
"If you are looking for a bass, you do not have to look any further than this beauty right here...I play gospel to Motown and anything in between. With this bass you can dial up any tone you are looking for. She is now my go-to without any question or hesitation." -- Sedrick C in Chicago, IL

"I love this bass and find myself picking it up sometimes over my guitars. That's a first." -- Joe Smith in Litchfield Park, AZ

"Literally flawless. I pulled this baby out of the box and fell straight in love from the first ultra twangy acoustic note...Everything from chunky 90's post-punk to soft jazz to slap bass in tha face to dad rock to death metal to orchestral, just turn a few knobs and this baby knocks it out of the park." -- Taran O.

"This is one of the most versatile instruments I have had the opportunity to play. The moment I picked up a Schecter Stiletto Custom I fell in love with it...This is a great instrument for gigs as it is light, sturdy and the playability seems to be much better than most...I will certainly be playing this instrument until it falls apart!"

Most-Loved Keyboard: Novation Bass Station II

Our Customers Say...
"The sound is absolutely exceptional and spans the gamut of being very clean to absolute chaos...at this price, you really can't go wrong. I can't imagine anyone that loves analog synths NOT being happy with this thing." -- Benjamin F in Las Cruces, NM

"I bought the Bass Station II so that I could start learning about synthesizers and oscillators. I love the ease of creating and storing my own patches. With all the dials and sliders at my fingertips, it was easy for me to learn what parts of the sound I was actually controlling." -- Nicholas Burke in McLeansboro, IL

"The Bass Station II sounds excellent, just like a high-quality analog monosynth should... Just running the arpeggiator or the onboard sequencer while doing some manual filter sweeps is practically capable of inducing a state of hypnosis." -- Fred K in Chicago, IL

Most-Loved Microphone: Shure Beta 87A

Our Customers Say...
"Amazing clarity! I made the mistake of letting our band's other vocalist try it and she liked it so much she didn't want to go back to her regular mic."

"I have never owned a better feeling, better sounding microphone than the Shure Beta 87A. This signal is clearer and truer than any I have ever owned."

"Sounds sweet and natural, but cuts through the mix. The more I use it, the more I like it. I always bring it to gigs, and during soundcheck I often hear 'Make my mike sound like his'...I will never use another mic unless I finally have to replace this one with another Beta 87."

Most-Loved Headphones: Sennheiser HD25

Our Customers Say...
"I upgraded to the Sennheiser HD25 after becoming serious about DJing...These small cans pack A LOT of punch. The quality is here. The bass, the feel, the overall sound, and the isolation from outside noise. I love these cans for the price." -- Matthew Mckinney in Hephzibah, GA

"A product for a lifetime...and the best DJ monitoring headphones!...Every single part is user replaceable...My dream come true."

"For closed headphones, these are the best cans around. They sound great, They are well constructed, won't fall apart, and wear well to different head (and hair) types. Even if the cord breaks at any point in the path, you can replace it."

Most-Loved Monitors: PreSonus Eris E4.5

Our Customers Say...
"Love these monitors! Purchased these to accompany my PreSonus StudioLive AR16 USB. I love the sound and response I get out of these monitors. They fill my home studio with a great sound." -- Nick R in Lafe, AR

"I was shocked at how loud and clear these speakers are for a small package. Don't let the size fool you... I plugged them into my laptop, and I couldn't believe it when I turned them all the way up to 10 with no sound distortion. They sounded ridiculous! I am in love with them." -- Michael Morrison in Waterville, ME

"AWESOME! These speakers have more than the power I need, are state of the art, AND I can hear all the low end I need CLEARLY and with plenty of headroom/power/volume. Affordable and perfect for my home studio setup, the perfect match for my AudioBox and Studio One Professional!" -- Julian Leal in Chicago, IL

Most Loved DJ Turntable: Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB

Our Customers Say...
"I got my first real pair of tables in 2000, which was a great used pair of Technics 1200's...I never thought in a million years that a new turntable could steal my heart away until I purchased a new pair of AT-LP 1240's. That's a bold statement! But try them yourself and you too will be convinced! I love my new tables!" -- Reginald Miller in Louiusville, KY

"Best turntable I've played on...It also looks great! When I'm playing in the club, people always walk up to make requests and I catch them looking at them...these are the ones to get!"

"This turntable is the REAL DEAL! The quality and build of this turntable is on par with the Technics 1200, but more modernized and additional torque. I purchased this with the Pioneer S9 mixer and I'm in heaven." -- J. Barnes in Atlanta, GA
