Spring sales are in full flow and not content to miss out on the action, Thomann has launched some tantalizing deals on select products from AKG, JBL, and DSM & Humboldt. Stock is incredibly limited and once they’re gone, they’re gone for good, so you’ll need to move quickly to get your hands on some quality music gear at bargain prices.
There are some brilliant discounts on a couple of pairs of AKG headphones with the AKG-701 seeing a reduction from the regular price of £157 down to just £122. If you need a workhorse to throw around in the studio, then make sure to check out the AKG K-182 studio headphones which have a discount of £28 off the regular asking price of £105, bringing them down to just £77.
Also seeing a reduction is the AKG Lyra USB microphone, which we reviewed at 4.5 stars out of 5 thanks to its useful multi-pattern feature and excellent recording quality. It’s got a massive 35% reduction, taking it down from £119 to just £77.
If you’re after a wireless solution to your music listening, then the JBL 104-BT speakers in white have a massive £82 discount versus the same product in black. Meanwhile, the guitar player’s out there will be pleased to see a discount on the much-lauded DSM & Humboldt Simplifier Amp/Cab Simulator, with realistic tube amp tone and feel now reduced from £263 to £239.
