Considering that it's the same mouthpiece you used in elementary school, mouthpieces models for beginning instrumentalists are sometimes selected on the smaller side (smaller mouth + smaller mouthpiece = better chance of success!) There are several reasons why you should invest in a larger mouthpiece, and below are a few: Horn mouthpieces are cheap - not ...

Remove the battery. I think it is set to some other base pitch for a transposing instrument, like an E-flat clarinet, so while it is probably calibrated correctly, it is not displaying the same note names as on the piano. I don't think A=440 or A=450 or some other tuning is the issue. You want to get it back into "guitar" mode. Usually the easiest way to ...

Disclaimer up front: I work for the company that makes these devices, but also use the software they run myself regularly. Have a look at the MusicOne or MusicOne CV. You do lose a degree of portability over a tablet in going for a larger screen size. The problem of rendering speed is overcome by importing the PDF files or scanning the originals into a ...

Your cabinet is designed to accept the very quiet signal from a guitar pickup. Instead you are sending it the line-level signal from your pedal. Your cabinet is designed to add colour to a clean signal. Instead you are sending it a signal that already has all the colour and tone you want. Assuming you definitely want to use your pedal, the ideal would be ...

Yes this is due to low quality stands and often the weight of the keyboard but also the resonance effect. When you hit the keys at the left or right end in a certain rhythm you increase the wobbling. What you can do is attach the mount to a wall with some cheap brackets or just build your own frame from wood which is based on triangles. You won't have any ...

Various A/B pedals are available. I use Behringers, which can switch either inputs or outputs.This may suit if you're swapping guitars, or for a more permanent set-up, buy a small mixer. Again, I use Behringer: their Xenyx series provides minimum 2 inputs, with eq., so you will be able to dial tone for each guitar separately. However, for about the same ...

For what it's worth, here's what I've learned so far, in using scanned music scores in PDF form on an iPad. Some PDF files containing high-resolution scans of the score take a long time to display. The degree of lag is a function of how the PDF file was made. In some scores it seems like the page starts off blurry and comes into focus. It's difficult to ...

There are several music-score-oriented PDF display apps for iPad that are highly-rated. I'm not making any endorsement and I have no direct experience with them. The advantage of these systems is that they are designed to enable you to assemble "set lists" of scores that can be placed in a specific order so you don't have to hunt around for different scores ...

One commercial solution is musicreader.net, as well as the device "Freehand MusicPad Pro" (the producing company is no longer operational, however). ePaper is too slow, you need a TFT of 10 inch or more, especially since scanned scores do not reflow. Especially the multi-voice scores wont stay readable easily. Exercise marks are difficult: do you expect to ...

Your stand is probably of lower quality. Vibration caused by lower notes and forceful playing contribute to moving the stand, and it also gets worse with time by loosening the joints, screws and bolts (natural effect). Another thing that can contribute to such problem is the levelling of the floor over which your stand lies. Joints between tiles, poorly ...

From looking into the L85 stand image on the web (two parallel vertical boards), the most probable reason is that your floor may not be perfectly flat. Check if one of the corners of the stand is not hanging in the air rather than standing on the floor. If you observe a gap there, put something under that corner to close it.
