Samson Expedition XP106w Rechargeable Portable PA – First Look

Samson Expedition XP106w Rechargeable Portable PA – First Look

In this video, I take my first look at the Samson Expedition XP106w battery powered portable PA system. As I move back in to playing live music, especially acoustic music, I needed a solution for amplifying my acoustic guitar and vocals, and the XP106 seems to fit the bill.

The device boasts a built-in 4 channel mixer, USB wireless microphone, Bluetooth connectivity and up to 20 hours of continuous use thanks to the built-in rechargeable battery.

Subscribe to the channel if you would like to see the XP106w in action, as I will be using it and testing in some real world test videos in the very near future.

Ego vs Self-Esteem in Music

Ego vs Self- Esteem – is there a place for ego in music and what is the relationship between the two?

In this video I talk about a concept which Warren Huart (Produce Like a Pro) mentioned in a recent video.

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with this assessment or am I way off?

JBL Endurance Run headphones – Review after one week

Just over a week ago I took a first look at the JBL Endurance Run headphones, and now I’m back to let you know what I think after using these headphones.

The verdict? These are some of the best value headphones I’ve come across, with great quality audio, excellent built-in mic (you can hear the audio quality in this video), and unique but comfortable ear pieces.

If you’re in the market for some affordable earbuds, these are definitely a great option.
