    As reviewed by JONATHAN LOWE on 1/31/2013

    I have played multipal instruments for over 25 years. Got this to get a better knowledge of doing live sound to help out with my church worship team. So far it has been very helpful. Showed it to the other sound guys and they all ordered a copy for themselves.
