Is There A Website Where I Can Purchase Instruments Used By Famous Artists/bands

What are good online stores to buy musical instruments?

I usually prefer Bajaoo.They have a wide range of musical instruments and accessories.I was searching for a budget electric guitar and found one on Bajaoo. I knew about this website for a long time, but I never ordered anything. I used to just compare the prices and specifications of the instruments on the website.This time the deal was too good to be missed and so I ordered the guitar.I was a little concerned about the packaging, so I was really happy when I found out that they offered an extra protective packaging and also transit insurance for an additional ₹200.After placing the order, I received my Guitar within 5 days and it was very nicely packed. The Extra protective packaging that I opted for was too good..!!Recently, I ordered a violin for one of my friends, and as usual, it arrived on time in perfect condition.

Do bands play their instruments when recording in a studio?

Depends entirely on the band. In a typical rock band, the individual members of the band will play their instruments. Not necessarily at the same time, however. It's common to lay down the drums first -- the first instrument is going to be the timing basis for the whole piece. Then bass over that, then guitars, keys, whatever else you want, and finally, vocals. Not always, not every bad. In some of U2's stuff, Edge is playing against a precisely timed echo of himself, and so his lead guitar is the basis for timing, and Larry and Adam would play to that track. Some "bands" are really one or two people who have a "touring band" to fill in the missing pieces. On the original Foo Fighters album, Dave Grohl played every instrument. Once the full band was assembled, they played on subsequent albums. On the other hand, most of the tracks on Nine Inch Nails albums are entirely the work of Trent Reznor. The touring band is just for touring. If you're talking jazz, it's not uncommon for a jazz record to be recorded "live in the studio", meaning that every player is playing together at the same time. This is also common for "smaller" projects -- I've recorded rock bands this way, primarily for expediency.  It's not always the best way to do it, you do have some limitations (my mobile recording system is only 16-track), but it can work. Some bands also hire "session" musicians to play various parts on an album. Particularly people known mostly as singers may work with a producer and a group of session players. That's not a bad thing, either, as session players are usually very excellent musicians. They have to be... this week it's a rock album, next week jazz, next week a kid's album, etc...

Where do singers buy their instrumental music?

Most singers and rappers get a producer to do this for them. A lot of producers have access to music other people don’t, either because of who they know, or from having already paid. Or they just produce their own instrumentals from scratch, either by recording real instruments or using software instruments (which can sound extremely professional these days).You can also buy old records and sample them. If the music is old enough (published at least 95 years ago, or the author has been deceased for 50–70 years), you’re legally in the right to use it however you want.There are also plenty of sites online with cool instrumentals you can buy for commercial use (which is what I think you are looking for), like Buy Rap Beats and Instrumentals, Rap Beats For Sale Online | Pro Rap Beats, and RawHeatz Beats. Each of which I just found by simply googling “professional instrumentals.”Another option is sampling a great sounding recording, though legally you have to get permission and pay royalties. Nobody will do much about it, though, unless they feel a reason to (like you’re making too much money, or gaining to much recognition from your track without properly crediting/compensating them). I’ve personally had my music stolen quite a lot, but I don’t believe anybody has made a lot of money off of anything that I didn’t authorize. I usually find it flattering.

What apps can identify a song based on my humming or singing a part of the song?

MidomiAds by GoogleMidomi is a neat well-designed website and a unique search engine that’s powered by your voice. Thevoice search takes up just a corner because Midomi also has a large community of music lovers behind it. Midomi’s ultimate goal is to build the most comprehensive database of searchable music, part of it with user contributions.ShazamShazam is a song identifier app (and also works like a tagging app) you can carry along in your smartphone. Shazam is supported on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Android, Blackberry, Nokia, and Windows Phone 7. With Shazam you can simply hold your phone up to the song to identify the track, buy it, check out the videos, and share it with friends. Unlike Midomi however, you have to play the track for Shazam to identify it with a tag – humming won’t cut it.MusipediaMusipedia is a melody search engine. As the site explains (to search a tune) – probably of the three, Musipedia gives you the best search combo to find a song if you can’t place it by name. You can use the available online tools like the Flash or Java based piano; you can draw notes with your mouse; whistle a tune into the mic; search by tapping the rhythm with the keyboard; use the Parson’s code; or simply use old-fashioned text search.The collection of tunes, melodies, and musical themes is freely editable by anyone. The site welcomes contributions to build-up the database.Hope it was helpful :)

How to convince your parents to get you a high quality acoustic guitar that is $300?

I want to learn how to play guitar. My parents say that I need to buy a guitar to learn how to play it. So I found a very high quality, top-rated, new acoustic guitar for $300 (Epiphone Dove) After doing the research, I found that this is quite an average price for a great quality beginner to professional level guitar. I know that my parents definitely have enough money to buy this guitar and that it wouldn't be a big spending or dent in available money whatsoever (please, you will have to trust me and agree with me on this, I'm pretty sure I know my parents better than you), but they refuse to buy this one. Instead, they are forcing me to choose from old, used acoustic guitars as low as $50! They absolutely refuse any of my research on the average price of acoustic guitars and how well-rated the guitar I was looking at was. I keep telling them that a guitar from $50-$80 will not be good enough quality for anyone to play. I have also told them that this will probably be the only guitar I ever buy, since it is such a "high price" and that it lasts very long and maintains quality as described in several reviews, and why bother wasting $50 on a junk guitar that I can't even return? They still refuse to negotiate. So what else could I possibly do to convince them that this guitar is perfect for me and actually a reasonable price for a much higher quality than the price, WHICH IN FACT is $200 than the actual list price of $400...and I don't even know when that special offer is going to end! Please help me find a way to convince them of buying this guitar! Thank you for any and all answers in advance!

What are the advantages and disadvantages of being a tattoo artist?

Advantages: One of the few ways to earn a living being a real artist. Make own hours. After you get good, no boss. Can earn a serious income. You can get seriously famous.

Disadvantages: You need to be seriously tattooed yourself or no one will take you serious. Machines always give you trouble. Annoying clients. Having to tattoo $1000 saddles on $10 horses.(In other words, you are putting serious work on losers who don't appreciate it)

Bottom-line, I never met a serious tattoo artist that wanted to do anything else.
