Amazon Prime Day 2019 is over! Here's what went down

Amazon Prime Day 2019

With Amazon Prime Day 2019 already shrinking in the rear view mirror, we wanted to take the opportunity to look back at what an epic event it was for music makers.

For 48-hours between 15 and 16 July 2019, Amazon offered deal-savvy Amazon Prime members huge discounts on around 1 million products. There was plenty of action for musicians, with deals ranging from guitars, microphones and keyboards, to Echo devices, action cameras and iPads.

It wasn't just Amazon that was getting in on the action either. Other major retailers including Walmart, Guitar Center and Musician's Friend had plenty to offer musicians too.

Some of the best deals were aimed at guitarists, including a massive 30% discount applied to 106 D'Angelico electrics, acoustics and basses. We also loved the crazy 47% price drop on Fender's ace PM-TE travel acoustic guitar.

Tablets were particularly popular this year too, with hundreds of you snapping up an iPad or iPad Pro for music making.

Over 175 million items were sold during the event with Prime Members saving over $1 billion dollars between them. With Amazon Prime Day 2020 set to be even bigger, stay tuned to this page for all the latest news and the best deals as they happen.

Did you manage to bag yourself a bargain this year? If not, here's a rundown of what you missed...
