Sweetwater Cyber Monday deals: FAQ

Does Sweetwater do Cyber Monday sales?

Sweetwater's Cyber Monday sale is one of the biggest shopping events of the year for musicians, delivering epic discounts on instruments, software and so much more.

Cyber Monday 2023 at Sweetwater will take place on Monday 27 November, but we expect the offers to start much earlier than that and to carry on through into December.

If past years are anything to go by we'd put good money on some deals landing in October, giving shoppers early access to Cyber Monday levels of discount, without the stress of making purchases so close to Christmas. Shopping early also means people can plan their budgets better.

If you want discounts on musical instruments, the Sweetwater Cyber Monday sale is where you should be looking - we’ll be rounding up all the best deals here.

What deals should I expect?

Last year’s Cyber Monday sale at Sweetwater was a real bumper affair, with a huge array of offers on all types of musical instruments and accessories, from guitar amps and Black Friday plugin deals to electric guitar strings and home recording gear.

So we’re expecting this year’s Sweetwater Cyber Monday sale to bring more of the same, and cater to every type of musician. Sweetwater has been running all sorts of sales throughout 2023, which leads us to believe it’s gearing up for a very exciting run of offers in the lead-up to Christmas.

Based on what we have seen in previous years, you can expect to see big discounts on major and more boutique brands popping up among the best Sweetwater Cyber Monday deals. Last year saw massive discounts like up to $210 off Shure Microphones, $400 off Roland V-Drums, and a healthy $50 off Focusrite interfaces. If you're into guitars there were plenty of discounts on six-string instruments too, including a huge $500 off the Schecter Corsair.

Is Sweetwater good to buy from?

Sweetwater has been garnering a reputation for some of the best customer service throughout the whole music retailer industry. Not only is their customer service top-notch notch but they also have a massive product selection, so chances are if you're after a particular piece of music gear, they'll have it.

We value our reputation so we would never recommend a retailer that isn't brilliant, so we can wholeheartedly recommend Sweetwater as an excellent place to buy music gear from.

How to prepare for this year's Sweetwater Cyber Monday deals

1. Create a wishlist early - There can be a lot of deals flying around on Cyber Monday, so it's important to zone in on the things you really want. Making a wishlist is a great way to keep your focus when the sales start happening.

2. Work out what you actually need - Consider your current gear collection and outline where the gaps are. Are you missing a delay pedal from your pedalboard? Perhaps you need more connectivity on your audio interface. Whichever it is, having a plan ahead of time will prevent you from pulling the trigger too early and regretting your decision.

3. Consider your music-making goals - Is your band going to be playing lots of gigs in the new year? Perhaps you're finally going to record that solo album you've been putting off for years. Think about what you want the new year to do for your music-making career, and buy gear that will help you hit those goals.

4. Make some room - Have you got enough room for that 4x12 cabinet? Having a pre-sale clearout is not only a great way to save space in your practice room or your home studio but can also free up funds for more gear!
