Aimee's Gear

Here are some Amazon links to all of the products and equipment you see Aimee using in her videos.

Being a jazz piano player and a singer, I have searched a long time for a good gig set up. I finally found one with this stage monitor. My keyboard is a Korg SV1. I'm so happy with my new sound and wanted to share. For a keyboard player, I can't find a better amp. Especially to make it sound like a piano. For a vocalist, this monitor is much better than any amp and get just as much power as most PA systems. Easy and portable, crisp and clear. Lightweight. Wonderful.
