Have you been using this lockdown period to make more music at home, or learn an instrument? If so, you're in good company with thousands of people around the world getting creative at home.

Now you're getting stuck in, maybe you've discovered you're missing something from your home studio rig – perhaps a more capable audio interface or some plugins to finish that track. Or maybe you've developed to the point where you feel you deserve a guitar upgrade, or you fancy learning the drums at home on an electronic drum set?

The good news is that music retailers have begun knocking big money of music gear and software across the board, enabling cabin fever-bound musicians to get more involved at home.
