When do the Cyber Monday music deals start?

For 2022, the Cyber Monday music deals will officially arrive on Monday November 28, just a few days after the Black Friday music deals have ended. 

Deals are launched at all sorts of random times – sometimes in the middle of the night – so savvy shoppers will need to keep a close eye on their favourite retailers to ensure they grab the bargains they're after. Some Cyber Monday music deals may stick for a few days after Cyber Monday, while others may only be live for a matter of hours, or could be stock-limited. So, if you're looking for a bargain, you need to be ready to pull the trigger.

What Cyber Monday music deals should I expect?

We’ll be keeping a close eye on the big music retailers throughout October and November. Based on last year's evidence, the Guitar Center Cyber Monday sales, Sweetwater Cyber Monday sales and Musician's Friend Cyber Monday sales will be the places for acoustic and electric guitars, amps, home recording gear and electronic drum sets.

When it comes to laptops for music production, this time of year is a great opportunity to pick up a Cyber Monday laptop deal for the home studio. Last year we spotted discounts on the newly-launched M1 MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs - mostly via Amazon - plus significant money off Dell laptops and older model MacBooks. Keep an eye on our MacBook Pro M1 deals page for the latest big ticket discounts. We're confident this year will be the ideal time to grab a top deal on your next laptop. 

If you're a sucker for software, we're excited to see what the likes of Waves Audio and Plugin Boutique deliver across the event. Last year, some of the biggest offers included crazy discounts on the biggest names in software. You'll want to keep a close eye on our Cyber Monday plugin deals page for the very best offers this year. 

For drummers itching to pick up one of the best electronic drum sets around, we’re looking forward to seeing price-slashing on some of the year's most popular models, including the new Roland TD-07 range and potentially Yamaha's new DTX series drums. Yamaha doesn't often do e-kit discounts through, so this may be wishful thinking. The Alesis Nitro Mesh e-kit has been a big winner when it comes to Cyber Monday drum deals, with the beginner electronic drum set seeing discounts of up to $50, plus bundle packages available over the last couple of years.

The Amazon and Walmart Cyber Monday sales will be massive as always, too. Here you'll be able to pick up everything from cheap wireless headphones and Amazon Echo devices, to top music gear – we’ll be bringing you the best deals we can find across these events.

We've been covering the Cyber Monday music deals for years now, so you can rest assured our teams will be hunting down the best offers before anyone else and sharing them with you first.

Cyber Monday music deals: Discounts and coupons

The Cyber Monday music 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.

How to prepare for the Cyber Monday music sales

If you really want to win big when the Cyber Monday music deals start flowing, our biggest tip would be to get your research done early, so you know exactly what you're looking for once it's time to strike. 

The good news is that we can help you with that...

Cyber Monday music deals: what happened last year?

Last year's Cyber Monday music deals were off the chain, but we're hoping to see even bigger offers this year. In terms of last year's highlights, laptops and iPads - and in particular MacBook Pros - were available with silly discounts. 

For guitarists, the biggest hitters last year were $100 off the stunning Fender Player Strat in Surf Pearl at Guitar Center, while the shred-ready Schecter C-1 Platinum FR-Sustaniac was a mighty $170 off at Musician's Friend.

The Casio Privia PX-770 is one of our favourite digital pianos for beginners, so seeing it discounted by $50 at Sweetwater was one of the standouts last year. In fact there were plenty of great Cyber Monday keyboard and piano deals to check out. 

For drummers, particularly new players, the best offer was $200 off the price of an Alesis Nitro Mesh kit bundle at Amazon, that included headphones and sticks.

Here's a few more offers from last year to give you a flavour of what you can expect from the 2022 Cyber Monday music deals.
