This means the budding Jimi Hendrix can play as loudly as they like without everyone around listening to their musical efforts. The Mustang Micro also supports Bluetooth streaming, so you can play along with audio from your mobile or computer, plus you can record your sessions using the USB-C output. $119.99

The scenery outside passes by like a film in fast motion. The seats (comfortable on most global trains, even in second class) feel like super-plush movie theater lounge chairs. Each train car, like a narrow living room, boasts its own mood depending on fellow travelers and the ministrations of attentive staff.
