I really needed to get a review in for the Walkabout
and I will add some sound clips when I figure out how to work my garage band. I finally have a little time to write a review.
The Walkabout came with everything needed to make my flutes sound beyond belief! The unit is compact and travels well in my flute bag and in a backpack.
It charges quickly through your computer. The other option is to get a wall outlet or through an adapter in your car. My new cell phone has a USB outlet that I use in the wall and in the car.
The assembly is quick; it is turned on when you plug the speakerís in. Each speaker has an on-switch. There are ten settings for sound effects and they are switched by push-button on the front face and have a digital readout to let you know which one you are playing. They are A0 thru A9. There is a volume adjustment on the top face.
The small microphone has an on/off switch. The clip on the microphone is perfect for rim blown flutes. On some NAFs I have a leather tie that attach to the fetish, this helps bring the microphone right to the side of the airstream.
I find that I really use the Walkabout on my Anasazi and rim blown the most. The canyon echoes really add a southing sound to this style of flutes. The A-7 to A-9 is some of my favorite settings when playing the rim blown. On A-5 the volume really explodes with a nice echo.
When I play the NAF I prefer the A1-A5 settings. I do play the deeper scales on the A5-A9 settings. The sound is awesome and loud.
You can really get lost playing your flute thru the Walkabout. I have played it in nice size room and outside. I have also played it behind a mike with others playing and it is picked up thru the other sound system.
I defiantly recommend the Walkabout if you are looking for a small portable self-contained sound system.
I see that they are vendors at Zion
in May, stop by and try the system out!
I will have mine at Musial Echoes
that anyone is welcome to try out.
