To kick off the holidays, the retailer is dishing out tasty 15% discounts one everything from electric guitars and keyboards for beginners, to budget studio headphones and loads more.

Use the Musician’s Friend discount code ‘HOLIDAY’ at the checkout for 15% off this awesome beginner e-kit with a killer red paint job. With all-mesh heads, some top-quality sounds and an aux input to rock out to your favorite tunes, you won’t ever want to put your sticks down. Oh, and did we mention it’s a special edition?

With 8” mesh heads on all the drums, and three 10” cymbal pads, it’s nicely compact. Not only will that improve your playing accuracy, but it also means that storage isn’t an issue. The snare drum pad and crash cymbal both feature a dual-zone setup, allowing for greater creativity and control over your playing. The mesh heads are designed to faithfully recreate the feeling of playing an acoustic drum set, so that way the techniques and styles that you learn can be easily transferred.

The 4-post aluminium rack offers strength and durability, but it’s still lightweight enough to take to jam sessions without putting your back out. The drum pads and pedals have put on a little weight for the mesh edition of this e-kit, but that means you can really dig in and play like nobody’s listening.

 The Nitro Mesh has USB and MIDI inputs and outputs, for when you want to do some quick recording or trigger some new sounds from a laptop. It’s also got an aux input for when you want to rock out to your favorite songs, and a headphone output for those early morning bursts of creativity.

This absolute beauty of a deal is part of the Holiday Kickoff sale at Musician’s Friend - which is offering up to 15% off over 18,000 items until November 15th - so it won’t be this cheap for much longer.
