Musician's Friend Black Friday deals: FAQ

Black Friday is the name given to the day after Thanksgiving in America, and this is the day when thousands of retailers all launch their pre-Christmas deals across a ton of products. Online retailers and those with bricks and mortar stores get involved, giving you plenty of choice when it comes to your Black Friday shopping. 

Black Friday 2021 starts on Friday 26 November and goes right through until Monday 29 November where we'll see the Musician's Friend Cyber Monday deals start to drop. However, the Musician’s Friend Black Friday deals, as with sales from other retailers, are likely to start going live well before then. So while we still expect the juiciest deals to land around the 26th, there will be early offers to shop in the run-up to that bumper sales weekend.

Musician's Friend Black Friday deals: Will there be stock issues?

If you've been following the news over the past few weeks, you'll undoubtedly know about the issues surrounding stock. With shortages worldwide, it seems getting your hands on that special piece of music gear is going to be harder than ever this year. 

Now, it will certainly vary from retailer to retailer and even depend on where you are in the world. Still, our advice would be, if you see a great deal on a piece of gear you've been looking for, then grab it straight away - you don't want to miss out. 

As there is a potential for delivery delays, we'd also recommend ordering as early as you can to avoid the risk of the item not arriving on time as we get closer to Christmas. We know from experience that the Black Friday bargains will start dropping far earlier than the day itself, so keep an eye out and order as soon as you see the item you are looking for.

Musician’s Friend Black Friday deals: how to prepare

The golden rule when hunting for Black Friday music deals is to know what you're looking for. Whether you're a guitarist, bassist, drummer, producer or DJ, think about what you need to improve your music-making life and then start researching it. 

This will save you a lot of time when the Musician's Friend Black Friday deals start rolling in, as you'll quickly be able to decide what's relevant to you and what you can happily ignore without a feeling of FOMO. Also, ensure you're aware of a product’s RRP and recent prices. That way you'll know how good the deal really is when you see it reduced on Black Friday. After all, some supposed 'savings' aren't everything that they seem.
