Sam Ash Cyber Monday: The best deals

Best Cyber Monday deals from around the web

When is Cyber Monday 2020, and when does the Sam Ash Cyber Monday sale start?

The Monday directly after Black Friday 2020 is called Cyber Monday, and it’s home to even further deals and discounts. The Sam Ash Cyber Monday sale is a continuation of the retailer’s Black Friday deals, with some exclusive Cyber Monday discounts thrown in to tempt last-minute shoppers.

Cyber Monday was originally created to celebrate online retailers and to encourage people to shop online a little more. The tables have turned in recent years, and especially this year, with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we’re expecting more people than ever to do their holiday shopping online. 

The Sam Ash Cyber Monday sale is expected to begin on the 28 November, kicking off a three-day deals marathon offering what we hope includes some generous discounts on a range of music gear. Most retailers running music instrument sales save a few really jaw-dropping deals for Cyber Monday itself, so don’t assume that you’ve see the absolute best - you may be surprised. 

Sam Ash Cyber Monday 2020: What to expect

If last year’s deals are anything to go by, we’ll be in for a real treat this year too. Taylor, one of the world’s best acoustic guitar brands, was among the best Sam Ash Cyber Monday deals last year. Sam Ash slashed nearly $200 off the price of the Taylor 214ce-DLX Deluxe Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric, and put a beginner-friendly Carlo Robelli acoustic on sale for just $99.

Boss and Line 6 guitar amps and guitar effects pedals were on sale during last year’s Sam Ash Cyber Monday sale, plus a nifty $20 saving on the Dunlop Cry Baby Wah Wah, arguably one of the best wah pedals the world has seen. Other brands in the sale included Korg, Blue Microphones, IK Multimedia, maker of the best synthesizers for home use, plus plenty others. 

Because last year’s event was so ripe for deals, we’re expecting 2020’s Sam Ash Cyber Monday sale to be brimming with discounts too. We expect this to cover similar categories to last year, with perhaps more of a focus on home recording due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as more of us are playing and recording at home.

Sam Ash Cyber Monday sale: How to prepare

The golden rule to shopping any Cyber Monday sale is to make a list beforehand of what gear you want to buy, what your budget is, and what the RRP of that product is. Why do we mention the RRP bit? Well, if you don’t know how much a product used to cost, how do you know if you’re getting a good Cyber Monday deal or not? 

Sam Ash, like other well-known musical instrument retailers, have a clear pricing policy so you can see how much the retailer used to sell a product for compared to how much it’s selling for on Cyber Monday. This is great, but you should still do your own research on price history. 

Don’t have much of a clue about the best brands or models in the product area you’re looking at? We can help here too, as we have hundreds of expert product guides (called buyer’s guides) across pretty much every type of musical instrument and accessory. Feel free to use them for your research - they can even show you today’s best prices for each featured product, which again helps with your price research. Here are some of our top buyer’s guides, as well as a link to where you’ll find all of them:

What happened last year?

Last year’s Sam Ash Cyber Monday deals covered a wide range of musical instruments and home recording gear, from the best MIDI keyboards and guitar wireless systems, to the best drum kits and audio interfaces. There were plenty of savings to be had whether you were a beginner or a seasoned musician, and whether you’re recording music at home or in a pro studio. 

Particular highlights included a stunning Fender Player Stratocaster which dropped down to $549.95, Martin LXK2 Little Martin that dropped under $296 and for the drummers, Roland's tasty TD-25KV-S electronic drum set had its price slashed by an incredible $500!
