Why Songstuff Music Product Reviews?

Sales and marketing information and technical specifications are very important, but informed opinion counts. It can make a massive difference to what you buy. For opinions to matter they have to be honest. They need to be clear. You need to respect the opinions and motives of the people doing the reviews.

We aim to be open and honest in our reviews. At the same time we also try to be as detailed as we can, testing in realistic ways to get the most relevant results. Whatever our perspective, we try to do our best to give clear easy to understand opinions.

Balance In Music Product Reviews

We try to provide you a balanced view about the products we look at. Sometimes those products are products that we have bought ourselves, other times the products are review copies provided by the companies just for review purposes, and sometimes we use the trial copy, where the full features have been unlocked for a trial period. No matter the way we encounter the product, we try to give a balanced, honest, unbiased opinion of the product.

Considerations For Product Reviews

When buying, we realise that there are so many things to consider. So, we try to include those key considerations, to provide a fuller review to help you in making a decision about what gear to buy next.

Example Considerations

In our product reviews we aim to include a number of useful perspectives and observations, including:

  • Features
  • Compatibility
  • Ease Of Use
  • Price
  • Look and Style
  • Results
  • Ratings

and, of course…

  • Informed Opinions

By including these perspectives we try to keep some consistency, no matter who is performing the review.
