Set List - Instrumental Versus Tuesday

Anything goes on Versus Tuesday.

In this edition of Instrumental Versus Tuesday, I am considering sample Squier by Fender bass beginner packs and Fender acoustic beginner packs.  Both can be found on Amazon - my source as an Associate.

Fender is a long established brand of guitars (founded in 1946).  One example is the bass, both Stratocaster and Telecaster.  In this post, another example is the acoustic guitar.  Scroll through the Fender official website for the entire selections.

With that said and as an Amazon Associate, I recommend exploring the image and description links below if intrigued or follow the image and description links below if seriously interested.

- Squier by Fender Affinity Series -

$329.99

Squier by Fender Affinity Stratocaster Beginner Pack, Laurel Fingerboard, Candy Apple Red, with Gig Bag, Amp, Strap, Cable, Picks, and Fender Play

In this fourth and final edition of zZounds Beginner Instrumental Back In Stock, I am featuring Casio keyboards once sold out but now back in stack.  The keyboards back in stock are especially noted for beginners.

With that said, explore the sample links below if intrigued or follow the links below if seriously interested.

As always,

Play it!

- Casio CT-X700 Portable Electronic Keyboard -

$174 ... Payment Plan - $29 (6 Mo.)

- Casio LK-S250 Casiotone Portable Electronic Keyboard with Lighted Keys -

While Yamaha is an excellent brand for beginners and pros alike, I chose to feature Casio because the brand rarely comes up for attention on Zounds and due note on Set List.  There are other available Casio keyboards best for a wide range of skill set, so if you want to see more, leave a shout out in the Comments section at the end of this post!

Set List Reader's Choice

Due disclaimer - This post contains affiliate links and I may earn a small commission on any purchase made.

In this edition of Set List Reader's Choice, your top favorite is:

zZounds Beginner Instrumental Back In Stock

As a brief refresher, the featured post highlighted electronic drums and acoustic drums.  Roland electronic drums and Alesis electronic drums gained the most attention.

In this post, I thought I would offer a bonus Roland electronic kit as found on Amazon.

Roland TD-17KVX-S V-Compact Series Electronic Drum Kit

$1,899.99


I also thought I would offer a bonus Alesis special edition kit as found on Amazon.

Alesis Strike Pro Special Edition Drum Kit
$2,899


Roland and Alesis have come up on Set List many times and both offer valuable credit worth considering.  So which way would you lean - Roland v. Alesis, zZounds v. Amazon?
