Yep. Module only.
The TD15 has been retired now. Been looking for a newer replacement/back up for my td10 module and you'll do well to find decent level second had Roland module for this price.
Module only right? This is not the full drum kit...
Sorry Hot
My missus would kill me if I bought a drum machine, but I'd love one.

Just got mine out of the box. Comes in a pretty good case, just seems to be some canvas material with polystyrene padding on the inside but it'll hold up to a few bumps. The whole top of the case zips as well so you could probably fit some music or a small book in there. You get the case, violin, a bow, rosin and some straps so you can carry the case on your back. Unfortunately I snapped a string as I was learning that you have to push the pegs in as you turn them to tune it but I did manage to tune it using PitchLab Lite. Can't really comment on how well it holds its tune as i can't be sure i'm applying correct pressure on the pegs, but i did manage to get a reasonably pleasant sound out of the remaining strings after applying rosin to the bow. But all in all i'd say it's a lot of instrument for the money, definitely not a toy and at this price easily worth a try if you or your child aren't sure if you're going to enjoy it enough to really splash out on one.
Now, to pick up some new strings. And a mute. And a fret guide. And a book...

Got mine a few minutes ago. As you said above, its a lot of instrument for the money. I ordered extra rosin as i didnt know rosin came free with it.

You are correct :)
Did my research a bit after then. Opted to buy the next model up, an Ibanez GSR200 in walnut - cheapest could find around 189 from memory, but managed to use bespoke which got me it for £163 - and should also come to an awesome price of £134 so long as I get paid the 18% quidco cashback that has tracked on it :)

Nice deal!

Saying Pacifica isn't up to much shows your lack of knowledge, ability or experience.
As a guitar teacher I can guarantee anybody reading this thread that you will not find a better sub £200 guitar than a Pacifica for playability, sound quality, build quality all combined in a performance per pound analysis.
Looks are personal but the guitar is a genuine diamond. I don't own one as I use PRS electrics as have a mind that allows non Gibson/fenders to be tried and experienced.
My acoustic is a Taylor Ltd edition fall 2011 koa guitar
Amp is a Hughes and Kettner grandmeister 3

Boasting about what gear you've bought doesn't prove your experience as a good guitarist - only an unhealthy attitude. I think it would be more just to say: "buy whatever guitar you want, as long as it aspires you to play." My relationship with my Pacifica 012 hasn't been great as my personal feeling towards the guitar is that it's a little boring and a little ugly, which did damaged my interest when starting to play.

Stick to a solid body as a 1st guitar?
I don't think it matters if it is solid or hollow body, as long as you find it comfortable to play
At the end of the day it's up to the individual as how much they want to spend. If, as many they decide the guitar is not for them this perticular guitar will be hard to shift and definately sell for way less than new price. If they dont want to take advice then that's fine. Maybe we'll see them on Guitar Star but I doubt it? :D
I agree that it is the individuals choice and budget constraints that dictate that choice, but with the budget available the OP has made a good choice IMHO, and you will never struggle to sell a quality instument like an Epiphone for a decent price, and with a better quality guitar to start with, you will not be looking to upgrade it so soon when you do progress.
This does remind me of a story in Guitarist magazine. Some guy had saved up for many years to finally buy a beautiful 2 grand PRS superstrat. While admiring it when he finally got it home he thought to himself..."I wish I'd learned to play the guitar before I bought this!" :D
Axes down guys, nothing like bedrocker aficionados, read some reviews, watched some experts on YT and think they know it all.

As for this guitar, perfect for a beginner. You wont get a better guitar for under £100. Worth noting that you can pick up a good quality second hand LP for £150-£200 if you're a bit more serious.


I beg to differ:
http://www.chasedirect.co.uk/guitars/electric-guitars/shine-sil-510tb-electric-guitar-translucent-black


Each to their own regarding looks, but I have to say that following your link I did a fair bit of research on Shine guitars and can only find positive, if not delighted comments from some very experienced guitar players. Moreover, I was so intrigued that I ordered the guitar you linked, just for further research you understand ;) If it is anywhere close to the quality that owners suggest then it is an absolute steal.

BTW, not to take away from this Epiphone deal, the Shine SIL-510 appears to be far better quality and value, if you like the looks and is £5 cheaper delivered with a free bag if you go through their eBay site:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shine-SIL-510-Electric-Guitar-F-Hole-Strat-InTranslucent-Black-Red-Free-Bag-/390537606899?pt=UK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV&var=&hash=item99b1da37ee

Cheers




I hope no one thinks I am hijacking this thread but I just wanted to update and say that I have now received the Shine SIL-510 guitar (linked above) and I have to say that I am stunned at the quality for £99. Granted, they were 'apparently' £349 originally but even so I am very impressed. The guitar is 'new' old stock and was probably made circa. 2004 but was delivered in perfect condition with a free case (cheapo, but all the same). I cannot find anything but praise for this model on the net and I would support that view. This model was deleted from the catalogue a long time ago so when they are gone, they are gone.

Thanks to foxleybob for bringing this bargain to my attention; probably deserves a deal of its own ;)

Cheers

The pickups are decent on these. The tuners however are not and I guarantee you'd need to change them as it won't stay in tune.


Rubbish. I've been playing guitar for over 30 years and I've had cheap nasty guitars and top quality guitars. Cheap tuners make it harder to get a guitar in tune, they don't make it go out of tune. If a guitar won't stay in tune it is virtually never an issue with the tuners.


Utter tosh; been playing a bit longer (as if that matters) and while I agree with what you say about cheap being harder to tune, they can also slip and go out of tune.

That's not true. That's exactly what happens with cheap tuners, out of tune by the end of a song.

Hendrix compensated by having a bizarre picking technique

I see what you mean ...

http://a.abcnews.go.com/images/Entertainment/gty_jimi_hendrix_playing_tongue_guitar_bw_thg_121120_wblog.jpg
If you are on a budget, check out the Squier Classic Vibe series. REALLY nice for the money.
Mexican Strats are okay but when I replaced mine with a Strat Plus it was night and day really and it should have been as it was about 80% more expensive.
One enormous difference was the pickups as I felt I had 5 very useable and distinct sounds with the Plus which I didn’t get with my MIM.
With the Plus I could just plug it into my Fender Pro Jnr and get that beautiful Fender tone without any need for pedals.

That spoilt me for non premium guitars and have since had some good deals on eBay when collecting in person to confirm the quality.
A lovely G&L Legacy USA Deluxe for ~£500 and a Carvin DC135T Custom for ~£425.
Both lovely guitars with decent hard cases which when added to the cost of a MIM would make it around £425.
Voted this hot just not for me.
Nearly lost it and bid on a Custom Shop Masterbuilt Strat this week as it had no bids and had a starting price of £2k. It was a LTD edition Proto of the Hendrix Strat with a reverse headstock. Sanity prevailed for once. :)

Any deals on left-handed strats about?

Just took the words out of my mouth!

I've never really understood why lefties don't just learn to play right handed. When you first pick up a guitar you're equally rubbish with both hands. They don't have left handed pianos.

It never did Jimi Hendrix any harm being left handed with a re-strung right handed guitar. I understand lefties when they say it feels more natural to play with their left. I cannot play left handed at all. I can't even sign my signature left handed.

It's easy for people to say that Hendrix played his upside down. The fact remains that it's inconvenient to have volume knobs on the top. You often catch them whilst strumming rhythmic parts. Hendrix compensated by having a bizarre picking technique, at least from what I've seen of his footage.

Yeh I could well understand the volume/tone knobs and pick-up switch getting in the way.

But the point is, I dont want a PC - in my opinion the Imac is better and my reason for using HUKD is 'How cheaply can I get the product I have chosen'.

I think the Micra is a poor quality product, but at £500 cheaper than anywhere else it is still a hot deal.

Your experience with apple means you think a PC is the way forward thats great - but that is not a reason to vote an apple deal cold. Just like I have no reason to vote the Micra deal cold. If they are both cheaper than anywhere else, then they are both hot regardless of whether I like the product.

People buy apple for all sorts of reasons, it is a premium price though but like someone else said you get what you pay for.

Lots of people buy premium cars, others buy budget cars - although they do the same thing there are various reasons for paying the extra for a premium car. Is a lexus comparable directly to a Nissan micra? No.

The Lexus at £20000 (£1000 cheaper than anywhere else) is a hot deal, The Micra at £10000 (£500 cheaper than anywhere else) is also a hot deal. What you are saying is the lexus is a bad deal, because the micra will do the same thing at 10k less. The thing is I DONT WANT A MICRA, I wanted the lexus so I want to know if the lexus is a hot deal or not - not whether I can buy an inferior product for cheaper.

No the Lexus is faster, more comfortable and more stylish than the Micra, unlike the computers being compared which are the same speed, and do the job in the same way, i use an iMac at work and it's the most annoying gimmicky piece o' shizen i've ever used.

It drives better, it has better economy, superior styling and build quality, it is a more comfortable ride etc etc. Is it better 'value' well yes it is but it depends on what you want when you buy the car, do you want basics, or do you want premiums.


Taking it back to the Mac/PC argument, yes I can get a PC to do what my Imac does for about £300 - £500. But with the Imac It drives better, it has better economy, superior styling and build quality, it is a more comfortable ride etc etc. Is the PC better 'value' well yes it is but it depends on what you want when you buy the computer, do you want basics, or do you want premiums.

My point is that this website is about 'price' not necessarily quality. Too many people on here see 'product a' and think 'I don't like product a therefore it is a bad deal' rather than 'I dont like product a but the price seems good/bad'

Apologies for droning on, and hopefully my spelling improved ;)

People buy apple because they want to feel like they're up-to date not because the product is necessary. I mean why did that guy ask for an alternative with the exact specifications of iMac, he didn't think of the specs first but after he found the iMac
lol you still don't get it do you?

I dont know why I'm saying this again, but this site is about finding the best price for a given product, if that product is £1500 everywhere else but you found it for £1000 then it is a good deal.

The fact that you can achieve the same result by buying a different manufacturer of a similar product for £750 is not relevant as this site is about finding the best price rather than the best product. In any case whether 'product a' is better than 'product b' is potentially subjective and perhaps down to personal experience.

For example I own and Audi A4 and a Ford Fiesta, both roughly the same age, both diesels but the Audi cost my 20k, and the Ford only 10k. Yes, they both do the same job - I get from A to B in the same amount of time, but the Audi is a better car hands down.

It drives better, it has better economy, superior styling and build quality, it is a more comfortable ride etc etc. Is it better 'value' well yes it is but it depends on what you want when you buy the car, do you want basics, or do you want premiums. They are not comparable, they do similar things but the way in which they do those things is inherently different.

Taking it back to the Mac/PC argument, yes I can get a PC to do what my Imac does for about £300 - £500. But with the Imac It drives better, it has better economy, superior styling and build quality, it is a more comfortable ride etc etc. Is the PC better 'value' well yes it is but it depends on what you want when you buy the computer, do you want basics, or do you want premiums.

My point is that this website is about 'price' not necessarily quality. Too many people on here see 'product a' and think 'I don't like product a therefore it is a bad deal' rather than 'I dont like product a but the price seems good/bad'

Apologies for droning on, and hopefully my spelling improved ;)
