Musical Instruments & Karaoke

Develop your child's appreciation for music from an early age by giving him toys and instruments. Even small toddlers can bang on a colorful xylophone or a pint-size keyboard. When your child is a bit older, give him a basic set of inexpensive percussion, string, and wind instruments so he can experiment to find his favorite before you splurge on the real deal and lessons.

Seagull's modified dreadnought body shape harnesses unwanted boominess and gives you a full-range tone that's great for all styles of music.

Long known as a great value in the guitar world, the Seagull S6 Original acoustic is an affordable guitar with great features!Seagull S6 Original Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:Seagull's quest for tone gives you a better playing and sounding guitarInnovative neck construction and mounting delivers killer playability and toneHandcrafted in Canada for more than a quarter of a centurySeagull's quest for tone gives you a better playing and sounding guitarRobert Godin, owner of Seagull Guitars, has never been satisfied with good enough. His tireless search for the better guitar has created quite a few innovations that go into every guitar model that Seagull makes. Every S6 Original's top is pressure tested for rigidity and stiffness to ensure maximum harmonic vibration. The unique compound-curved top adds structural integrity to the guitar and allows for thinner bracing. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Seagull S6 Original will give you years of great performance.Innovative neck construction and mounting delivers killer playability and toneThe attention and care given to each Seagull shows in their looks, playability, and tone. Seagull has also taken extra care to ensure that the S6 Original's neck helps create an amazing guitar experience. An acoustic guitar's neck is more than just a fretboard used for playing, it also creates the guitar's tone. Seagull's Integrated Set Neck gives your guitar the sound you want and the stability you need in a performing guitar. This system provides stable and consistent action that also reduces warping and twisting. Thanks to this integrated system, the S6 Original's neck pitch is perfectly set. If it's too far forward the instrument will sound muddy, or if it's too far back the guitar will sound tinny. Seagull's design assures optimized sound and playability with these and other innovations found in the entire Seagull line.Handcrafted in Canada for more than a quarter of a centuryFor over 25 years, Seagull guitars have been handcrafted in the small village of La Patrie in eastern Quebec. About half of the population works creating these exquisite guitars. All of the guitars in the Seagull line are made in Canada from the S6 Original models to the Maritime models to the top-of-the-line Artist series guitar.

Seymour Duncan
$189.00

Guitar Accessories - To achieve the ideal high-gain tone, you're going to need a set of high-output pickups, like Seymour Duncan's... Nazgul/Sentient 7-string Set. Here in Sweetwater's guitar shop, we've done countless pickup upgrades, and we've seldom seen a passive humbucker that can compete with the Seymour Duncan Nazgul. With its large ceramic magnet, this humbucker delivers brutal low end so you can drop tune without bottoming out, yet the midrange stays super punchy so you won't risk flabbing out or losing attack when you stack on distortion and drive. The Sentient neck pickup complements the Nazgul perfectly, adding harmonic complexity on top of traditional PAF voicing, putting it somewhere between Duncan's '59 and Jazz model. Together, this Nazgul/Sentient set is the perfect way to kick your favorite axe into high gear.

Live Sound Microphones - Earthworks Flex Series microphones offer the same great sound and open easy to use cardioid pickup as the...ir acclaimed SR69 and SR71 mics but with a range of quiet, flexible neck lengths. These allow real time and real world adjustment of microphone positioning. Earthworks Flex mics are intended for podium use, hanging choir mics and for reaching into hard to reach places such as drums and hammer dulcimers.Their on-axis sound quality is natural and uniform all the way out to 90 degrees and yet arrivals from off-axis are rejected smoothly with very little coloration. This is a strong plus for church, civic and corporate podium vocal applications because an orator moving about in front of the mic will be picked up more evenly than with most microphones.The sound quality of the Flex mics is every bit as good as Earthworks' other cardioids for applications ranging from acoustic guitar to choirs. Earthworks Flex mics will also cleanly handle very loud sources like drums and guitar amps.The Flex Series Microphones are flat from 50Hz to 20kHz within +/-2dB at 6 inches. This level of accuracy is unusual in flexible microphones. Earthworks Flex mics facilitate intelligibility and communication through time accurate response. Earthworks mics are optimized for fast clean impulse response. This results in uncolored sound because the relationships between frequency and time are less smeared than with normal mics. They sound true to life and are very user friendly. FM 360Don't let its diminutive size fool you - the FM360 is the Napoleon of the Flex Series, powerfully equipped to totally dominate in situations which require a very low profile in order to get it right in tight places. The FM360 will effortlessly handle applications ranging from tall podiums for short people to piano, drums and guitar amplifiers. Condenser Microphones read more
