  • OnSong - iPad songbook app
    OnSong - iPad songbook
    "I looked at a half-dozen or so free and low-cost iPad songbook apps and decided OnSong best fits my needs. It reads standard format files, You can edit songs in the app, highlight lines in different colors, and most importantly transpose to any key with the flip of a switch."

  • Fred Kelly Freedom picks
    Fred Kelly Slick picks
    Fred Kelly Speed picks
    "I like the Freedom picks because they stay on my fingers for both forward and backwards plucking, and I like the sound of the Delrin: very little initial clack when you hit the strings. The Slick picks are good for strumming in a group setting, where you want to get a lot of sound from the bass. The Speed picks are not as loud as the slick picks, so I use them when playing solo to play accompaniment chords while playing melody. It let's the melody stand out more."

  • Cooperstands
    "Cooperstands fold up into a nice small package that fits easily in the pocket of a gig bag, are well made and quite reasonably priced."
    Ken Ellis
  • "The Cooperstand for example, I have other instrument stands, one is an RKS Gig stand, which is cheaper, lightweight, folds down quite well, but not as firm as a Cooperstand which folds down more, and looks so good with a quality wood instrument! It holds the autoharp firmly either upright or on its side. I have another which holds the harp and a funny angle, (no name on it) and an older guitar one by K and M which is more bulky, heavier and will not fit into a side pocket."

  • Boss TU12 tuner
    Boss TU-12 tuner
    "I like the tuner because it is more accurate than the cheap ones. Also I like the analog dial. It seems to me to be more sensitive than the LED displays, so I think I can dial in the notes better."

  • "The Olympus digital recorder - I have not had any others apart from a Minidisk some years back, but the Olympus is small, very powerful, can be set for different spaces, the battery is charged up in a USB port and lasts for ages, and a huge number of recordings! I can set it for mp3 or wav, cut out hiss noises, split tracks, download to the laptop and I still have not discovered all the features!! Jan Brodie recommended it to me and I use it all the time, especially if I think of a new tune in the early hours!"
