Reviews of vocal effects and equipment used by singers are the main subject of this section. Reviews written by us are based on equipment that our contributors use on a regular basis and news releases by product manufacturers. Various articles and opinions will be added here as and when we get time, you are also welcome to send us a review for inclusion here by using the contact form.

We don't have much time or the personnel to check and review all equipment supplied by specific manufactures, plus there are plenty of places on the internet and in magazines who are product specific who supply this service.  Thanks to Hitsquad Shareware Music Machine, we are able to supply some interesting reviews which are listed below.
