Dirt Devil 12 Amp - Dirt Devil





The Album, The Gear, The Band

I recently purchased two new guitars and an amp. I've always wanted to perform as part of a group, but I've been able to get away with flying solo on the acoustic guitar. All 12 songs were written during a period spanning both my high school and college years--each one tied to a distinct time of developmental struggle or awakening. I don't consider it a polished or masterful piece of work, but at least an honest one that in many ways represents the hurdles I had to overcome in order to produce it. And--having produced the entire thing on my own from start to finish--I...  Throughout that time, I continued writing and exploring new sounds--and now I have another whole collection of songs I'm excited to work on.   Jumping into transition, I've quite literally "geared up" for what's to come. I'd attempted recording an album a few times since high school, but always managed to sabotage myself in one way or another. Our plan is to start gigging within the next few months after we've got a good batch of songs practiced and ready to go. ) The other is a brand new G&L ASAT Special semi-hollow electric, which I've named Gun and paired up with a lightly used Vox AC30cc2x amplifier. In September I released my first album  With Tongue & Teeth .   Completing the project ended up being a bit of a revitalizing experience for me. call it a time of "mental throat-clearing" if you will. I won't go into the nitty gritty of it, but in short I just wasn't ready to do it. Now that it's done, With Tongue & Teeth  feels to me like a time capsule of sorts. Thus, I'm happy to say I've started jamming with a stellar group of righteous musicians I met in college. It's only been about a month since we started getting together on the weekends, but so far the sounds we're making are super rad and I'm stoked about the direction things are headed. In a sense I feel I've caught up with myself and my music.

    I had a serious accident right after I ordered these, so it's partly my fault for not checking the product to make sure it was right when I received it. It's been too long to complain at this point, but I also didn't think it was fair to give a negative review without giving them a chance to respond. I didn't expect a return or exchange, just a simple response...maybe..."Gee, sorry, we'll double check the belts."Even though the package was clearly labeled as a size 12 Dirt Devil belt, they're WAY too small.

This review is from: Dirt Devil Type F1 HEPA Vacuum Filter, 3JC0280000 (Housewares) I don't understand why this product gets such high reviews. The part I received was not a Dirt Devil product but a knock off. I would have kept it but the part does not work. The inlet diameter of the filter that I received is bigger than the correct part. The first time I used it, it unseated from the inlet mount. Now I question if the filter material may also be a cheap knock off. Be forewarned, even though the item title say "by Dirt Devil", it most certainly is not. 0, June 16, 2012

    Terrific Performer and Outstanding Value

Now I live in a 2,500 sft home.For the past three years, this vacuum has served our family well. Pros:1. Inexpensive. $40 or less in most places.2.

    works fine after a year

    0 4/5 R. Wys "R. Wys" (MN, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagged Upright Vacuum, M085590RED (Kitchen) I was suprised to see that some of the other reviews portray this vacuum as useless. I bought mine from Target a year ago and it works wonderfully. Only complaints is that it's still pretty 'clunky' to carry around and that when you want to use the attachments it's hard to get the hose out. I've gone through a Shark brand vacuum that broke after 2 uses and an Orek XL that ate it's own cord but couldn't pick up Cheerios that my daughter spilled. I've had bad luck with vacuums but this one is doing just fine after 200+ uses.Feb. 2013: I just upgraded to a Bissel Trilogy Pet but my Dirt Devil still works wonderfully! Do not buy the canister version of this vacuum though! I've never had to replace the belt on it yet and I did replace the hose two months ago because my husband broke it where it attached to the base but it was a cheap fix. I still say this product is worth purchasing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 19, 2008

    Can suck the chrome off a trailer hitch but breaks

    UPDATE After about 5 Months the part of the hose that connects to the motor ( see my pic) has had a piece break off that locks on the little peg; and now the end of the hose has a vertical crack in it where the attachments would connect. My concern all along after assembling this was the durability factor.I have a rainbow canister that I have decided to retire do the intensive assembly required for its operation. You have to fill the tank with water then place it it's caddy, place the motor on top of tank and then attach the hose from the power head to the motor. Then do the reverse to empty the water from the tank.

    Still a great hand vac!

    I bought a Dirt Devil hand vac in the early 1980's because the carpet salesman where I bought my new carpet told me it would be far superior for use on stairs than the attachment that came with my upright (Rainbow) vacuum cleaner. He was right and I also loved that hand vac for cleaning my upholstered furniture. I bought a Dyson Animal vacuum cleaner last year and I wish I could say that the upholstery attachment sucks, but it doesn't, and it is hard to put on and take off of the hose. I like the Dyson for my carpets but am not at all impressed with their attachments. So, today I bought this Dirt Devil Classic and it is great! I read the reviews here and others were complaining about some of the other models. This hand vac has a belt and the belt can be replaced.

    I thought I liked it, but then...

    I started out liking this machine, despite being not so fond of our former Dirt Devil "screamer" with the ridiculous belt changing routine. The problems with this machine are: try cleaning the pleated filter (good luck!) and the exhaust blowing out the sides and then slightly downward blows around what you're trying to vacuum up. I am really surprised no one else has mentioned these two issues (except for one person who mentioned the filter). After just one use, I had to knock the pleated filter against the trash can to loosen and remove the dirt--no go. So what are the options? Leave the dirt in there to continually clog it, and then be forced to go buy a new one for $5.99? I honestly think this was the goal of Dirt Devil, just to make an extra buck. And if you're trying to vacuum up pet hair, and anything light weight, watch it blow around from the exhaust as you go chasing it with the vacuum (utterly futile). It's on the loud side too.

It is one of the best purchases I've ever made.PROS:* Picks up so much hidden dirt in our thick carpet, it scared us the first time we looked in the canister!* For how much power it has, it is actually very quiet - quieter than our old 10 amp vacuum.* Turns on a dime and gets into nooks and crannies really well - we don't have to use the hand tools on every single wall edge.* The attachment with moving brushes cleans stares amazingly well.* No filters or bags to buy - this is a huge plus as we could never find a replacement filter for our old vacuum.* The cord is very long and it retracts into the vacuum.

    Great vac - but not for wood floors.

    I bought this vac and owned it just a few days and returned it. It is an excellent design and has superior suction but is not good for wood floors as the brush roll has no shutoff. That means when you're using the attachments or vacuuming wood floors, the brush roll is on and spinning. If the vac is on, the brushroll is on. Silly, really. Why spin the brushes on hardwood? Sure I could adjust the height adjustment but it's still silly to risk damage to your wood floors. Even Hoover's manual says "For optimal cleaning performance on bare floors, brushroll should be turned off." (Suction only mode only available on select models).I rather pay more for a vacuum that has the ability to turn that off - and I did - I bought it's "brother" the hoover Windtunnel "PET" UH70210 which has 3 additional features.
