When will the Cyber Monday guitar deals land?
The Cyber Monday guitar deals 2021 will officially arrive on Monday November 29th, just a few days after the Black Friday guitar deals have come to a close.
As Cyber Monday is a worldwide event, deals are launched at all sorts of times. Quite often a killer deal will go live in the middle of the night, so shoppers will need to keep their eyes peeled when it comes to the bargains and products that they're after. Some Cyber Monday deals will only be live for a matter of hours, and some will linger for a few days, but we'd suggest jumping on a great deal when you see it. You won't want to miss out.
What Cyber Monday guitar deals should I expect?
We'll be keeping an eye on the biggest music retailers throughout October and November for the best Cyber Monday guitar deals. Based on last years deals, the Sweetwater Cyber Monday and Guitar Center Cyber Monday sales were the ones to watch - responsible for some ridiculous deals on electric and acoustic guitars, amplifiers and more.
If you're someone who likes to record their guitar tracks at home, then Cyber Monday is always a good time to pick up a brand new laptop for music production. Last year we saw discounts on the newly-launched M1 MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs - mostly via Amazon - plus significant money off Dell laptops and older model MacBooks. The M1 MacBook Pro has its very own MacBook Pro M1 deals page where you'll be able to find the best deals and discounts. We're pretty confident that 2021 will see another big sale on music-making laptops, so this could well be your year.
Last year's Cyber Monday guitar deals saw big sales on Fender Player Stratocasters - something which we very much expect to happen again this time around. We also expect to see great deals on guitar amps and software, such as Positive Grid's Spark 40, BIAS FX and AMP 2 software.
Between us, we've done our fair share of Cyber Mondays - so you can rest assured knowing that we'll be hunting down the best deals for you, before anyone else.
Cyber Monday guitar deals: Discounts and coupons
The Cyber Monday guitar deals aren't all about individual product discounts. Some retailers prefer to offer discounts overall on a range of product categories. Usually this comes in the form of a code that you enter at checkout to redeem your discount.
To give you an example, last year Sweetwater was offering up to 80% off a range of guitars, drums, recording gear, software, headphones and so much more from the big brands in their Cyber Week sale. Elsewhere, Guitar Center and Musician's Friend were both offering 15% off select products.
This is a great way to shop and can end up saving you more when you have multiple items you're looking to purchase.
