Gifts for Musicians
We understand that every musician has a different taste. We've taken that into careful consideration and have tried to accumulate as many categories as possible, in order to offer the largest range of gifts for musicians.
Korg Volca Kick/Bass Percussion Synthesizer (VOLCAKICK) ($133): The Volca range do provide much more features and functionality than what is needed for just an introduction - but they are still a great way to start. This product arrived on time in perfect condition.The volca kick is a compact and portable arrangement of a powerful kick synth. Just like the other synthesizer models in the volca series, it is made to be intuitively and immediately playable.
Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 Portable Waterproof & Shockproof Bluetooth Speaker ($137): This speaker has excellent sound quality, long battery life, it is LOUD without losing quality. I already had a Klipsch Gig Bluetooth speaker that I received as a gift. Being a pioneer in loudspeaker technology and design, the sound was decent for the size.
This Is Your Brain on Music: Very easy to read, not highbrow but well researched. A must for any music lover.Far less scholarly than Oliver Sack' "Musicophilia," this is a fun read for waiting rooms, the beach, or bus trips, to carry around in your purse or pack. Delightful descriptions of music and peoples' relationship to music One doesn't need to be any manner of expert to read and enjoy it. Also, it's repeatably dip-able, just any place. Quite enjoyable and very clear.
Handcrafted Guitar Amp Wall Mounted Key Holder with 4 Keychains by Droplight Ind. ($50): What an awesome gift! Great workmanship, quality materials, great design.This vintage-looking guitar amp key holder looks great in any room, but it's perfectly suited for placing near the door in the entryway. Put yours out of site until you get home and then hang your keys right there on their guitar.
VOX AP2AC amPlug 2 AC30 Guitar/Bass Headphone Amplifier ($43): Good quality brand at a reasonable price. Three small dials for volume, tone and gain with an FX switch to provide a nice range of sounds. Battery operated, easy to use and perfect for "quiet" practice. Overall just what I was looking for in a plug-in headphone amp.
Moleskine Art Music Notebook ($20): it's perfect for sketching out songs and keeping practice notes. it has 11 staves on the right and a blank page on the right. the staves are the perfect distance apart and the blank pages are great for notes and lyrics. the little ruler keeps all my bar lines straight and uniform and it fits conveniently in the pocket in the back.
Vibes High Fidelity Earplugs ($24): Thin is good - but invisible is great. No one wants to see that you're wearing ear plugs, especially if you are a musician or at a concert. You want to hear all the nuances of music and speech, but still protect your ears from the damaging effects of loud sounds. Up until now, this has meant sacrificing comfort and wearability.
TC Electronics Ditto Looper Effects Pedal with ac power adapter: The ditto is a good, simple looper.Ditto Looper designed from the ground up with guitarists in mind. Hey, we play too, so it's what made sense to us. We made sure Ditto Looper takes up minimal space on your board while still having the essential 'make your guitar-heart jump' features such as True Bypass and Analog-Dry-Through, making sure your tone stays uncolored.
Bundle-3 Items ($100): It's one of those gadgets that while you probably don't need it provides so many elements here and there in a song. If you ever wanted to sustain that one note forever this is the gadget that does that. It takes a bit of getting used to and to find out where to place it on your particular guitar for optimum results as it is different between my Strat and my SG but all that came surprisingly fast with a little work.
