It's day 2 of Amazon Prime Day 2024! We've already had 24-hours of savings, with another 24 to go. Will we see bigger, better deals today? We'll be keeping tabs on all the best Prime Day music deals and sharing them on this page, but you can rest assured that the majority of yesterday's best deals are still going strong with more to come today.

If you want to get straight to today's best bargains, for us some of the coolest discounts are happening with home studio gear, with Amazon knocking a sizeable $80 off our favourite affordable audio interface, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (4th Gen). Couple that with a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50X studio headphones - currently 18% off - and you're on your way to a very capable home recording setup.

Today we're on the hunt for even more discounted music gear, including laptops, keyboards and guitars. Stay tuned.

TOP TIP: If we've learned anything from covering Prime Day over the years, it's that it pays to not only look at Amazon, but also to other online stores who launch their own sales and aim to offer the best deals of the season. So, we've done exactly that for this page, and also have top picks from Sweetwater, Guitar Center and more.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 4th Gen: $249.99, $169.99

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 4th Gen: $249.99, $169.99
Currently ranked as our top audio interface for producers, podcasters, and other creators, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 4th Gen combines super clean preamps with a huge range of features to make it one of the best and easiest-to-use interfaces around. It’s only been relatively recently released, so this is amongst the best discounts we’ve seen on Focusrite’s powerful red box.

Apple MacBook Pro M2: Was $2,499, now $1,929.99

Apple MacBook Pro M2: Was $2,499, now $1,929.99
12-core CPU/19-core GPU/16GB unified memory/1TB SSD/14.2-inch Liquid Retina XDR display

For me, the MacBook Pro M2 is the perfect music-making machine. It’s got a huge amount of power under its hood for running countless plugins and VSTs, but retains a portability that allows you to mix on the go, or take it on mobile recording sessions. It’s cheaper than the new M3 model, which for me is overkill for music production, and has plenty of connectivity which means you don’t have to buy a pricey Thunderbolt hub to get the most out of it when integrating in a more permanent setup.

PreSonus Revelator: Was $149.99, now $85.24

PreSonus Revelator: Was $149.99, now $85.24

One of our favourite budget studio monitors, the Adam Audio T5V delivers crystal clear monitoring alongside an excellent range of connectivity. The distinctive gold ribbon tweeter gives you a wide sweet spot for listening, making them great for less-than-perfect home studio setups. With a nice $50 discount for Prime Day, they're just below $300 for a pair which is excellent value considering the quality of their sound.

Shure MV7: Was $311, now $249

Shure MV7: Was $311, now $249
Sitting at the top of our best podcasting microphones guide, the Shure MV7 is one of the best-sounding and most versatile podcast mics ever made. With dual XLR and USB functionality, built-in auto level, and the sound quality you’d expect from a company with the heritage of Shure, it’s the perfect way to level up the quality of your podcast.

These excellent monitoring headphones have now been trimmed slightly to just $119, perfect for upgrading your studio setup or just enjoying music with much higher fidelity than your average consumer headphones. If you want more convincing check out our review where we gave it four and a half stars out of five.

Roland JUNO-DS88: $1,199.99, $999.99

Roland JUNO-DS88: $1,199.99, $999.99
The JUNO-DS88 boasts a remarkable 88 weighted-action keys, making it the first of its kind in the storied history of the JUNO series. Roland's Ivory Feel-G keyboard with progressive hammer action perfectly complements the expressive new piano sounds, offering high-end touch and playability, all while keeping the instrument light and mobile.

American Ultra Jazzmaster: $2,299.99, $2,069.99

American Ultra Jazzmaster: $2,299.99, $2,069.99
Fender's American Ultra series is home to some seriously rad guitars and basses! The American Ultra Jazzmaster is all about that "Modern D" neck profile, a tapered neck heel, a 10"-14" compound-radius fingerboard, Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups, and excellent wiring options that will blow your mind with endless tonal possibilities - and you can now get 10% off over at Fender.com. 

PreSonus Atom: Was $149.99, now $94.99

PreSonus Atom: Was $149.99, now $94.99
Small but solid, the PreSonus Atom is a great little pad controller for drums or melodic elements in your mix. The Studio One integration is fantastic, but it works well with a variety of DAWs and you can customize the knobs to change whichever parameters you prefer. It's got a massive $55 discount in the Prime Day sale, taking the price below $100 which is an absolute steal.

D'Addario EXL110-3D: $17.99, $12.99

D'Addario EXL110-3D: $17.99, $12.99

Sennheiser HD 650: Was $499.95, now $349.95

Sennheiser HD 650: Was $499.95, now $349.95
If you want a premium pair of studio headphones, I’d go for the Sennheiser HD 650s. Even with a massive $150 discount, they’re not cheap, but the moment you strap these on you’ll know they’re worth every penny. The sense of space in the sound field is absolutely stunning, with superb detail that lets you pick out every nuance of a mix. The low-end detail is incredible, going down to a ridiculous 10Hz and although most humans can’t hear this low, it definitely helps these cans deliver an aggressive sound that’s perfect for balancing your kick and bass guitar.

Logitech Blue Yeti: Was $129.99, now $76.70

Logitech Blue Yeti: Was $129.99, now $76.70
Logitech’s Blue Yeti is amongst one of the most popular mics for content creators around, thanks to its excellent recording quality and multiple modes making it super easy to use. It’s got a hefty $53.29 discount in the Prime Day sale at the moment, taking its price well below the $100 mark. The four directional pattern modes of cardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional, and stereo make it super versatile, and at this price, it’s incredible value for money. If you need any further convincing, check out our Blue Yeti review, where it scored a full five stars out of five. 

Gruv Gear FretWraps: Was $39.99, now $29.74

Gruv Gear FretWraps: Was $39.99, now $29.74
If you're a lover of all things low end, fretwraps can be a proper game changer. Particularly effective when used with bass and extended-range guitars, these Gruv Gear FretWraps come in a pack of three and have a nice $10.25 off in the early Amazon Prime Day sale. The discounts are available on the small and large sizes, which fit a 4-string bass/6-string guitar and 6-string bass/8-string guitar respectively.

Fender Mustang Saddle Strap: $69.99, now $43.80

Fender Mustang Saddle Strap: $69.99, now $43.80
Every guitar player needs a good-quality guitar strap, even if you only play at home. The Fender Mustang Saddle Strap is made from premium, full-grain leather and with a huge 37% discount is excellent value for money in this Prime Day deal. There is money off all three colours, but the biggest discount is on the Butterscotch-coloured strap.

Mackie MC-450: Was 199.99, now $109.99

Mackie MC-450: Was 199.99, now $109.99
A nicely balanced pair of open-back studio headphones, the Mackie MC-450s have got a significant $85.99 discount making them great value for money. They’re relatively hefty and well-built enough to take on the road, and the three different cable choices are a really nice touch. The sound of these headphones is very neutral in the lows and mids, although they are voiced fairly bright. This means you may want to use headphone software to neutralise them even further but with the current discount, they’re still excellent value in our book.

D'Addario Circuit Breaker Cable: $55.20, now $33

D'Addario Circuit Breaker Cable: $55.20, now $33
It's difficult to damage your guitar amp by unplugging without muting your signal, but it sure is annoying for everyone else. If this sounds like you, then you need a D’Addario Circuit Breaker Cable, which ensures easy unplugging without any annoying noises thanks to a simple latching button that mutes the signal going through the cable. It’s got plenty of length at 20-foot long which will serve you well playing live, and with a hefty $22.20 discount in the Amazon Prime Day sale, it’s excellent value if you’re in the market for a fresh cable. 

Elgato Stream Deck +: Was $199.99, now $159.99

Elgato Stream Deck +: Was $199.99, now $159.99
Ever wondered how your favorite streams and podcasts make things look so effortlessly smooth? Well most of them are probably using a stream deck in one form or another. Endlessly customizable, the Elgato Stream Deck + allows you to streamline your content creation, allowing you to mix audio, cue camera changes, and make multiple changes with just a single button press. It’s got a tempting $40 discount in the Prime Day sale, and we love the LCD keys and touch strip that give you a great visual of what’s happening.

D'Addario XPND Pedalboard: $109.99, $93.69

D'Addario XPND Pedalboard: $109.99, $93.69

Casio Privia PX-S3100: Was $879, now $799.99

At the core of this Roland stage piano is a stellar sound engine that delivers magnificent tones to suit any situation - and right now you can save a whopping $200 at Guitar Center. 

Amazon device deals

With Prime Day being an Amazon invention, naturally it's the time to make big savings on Amazon's own products. So, if you're looking to upgrade your Echo speakers, boost home security with a Ring video doorbell, or detox from your phone with a Kindle, Amazon devices get plenty of discounts for Prime Day. We'd recommend waiting, until the event itself, but here's a rundown of the latest prices so you know if you're getting a genuine bargain when the time comes. 

Last year Amazon was also giving away smart speaker bundles that included free subscriptions to their Music Unlimited streaming service. Keep your eyes peeled for those.

Amazon Prime Day FAQs

When is Prime Day 2024?

Prime Day has traditionally always taken place in July and this year is no exception. Prime Day 2024 has officially been confirmed as taking place on Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17  July. 

We're expecting Amazon to deliver well in excess of 1 million deals over that 48-hour period.

For more information you can also check out Amazon's own Prime Day hub page.

Do you need an Amazon Prime membership to shop on Prime Day?

To take advantage of the Prime Day music deals on Amazon itself, the answer is yes. If you’ve never been a Prime member before, Amazon usually offers free trials (right there's a 30-day free trial up for grabs) and you can cancel your subscription at any time, so if you're feeling tactical, you could sign up now, pick up some bargains on Prime Day, then cancel your subscription within that 30-day window. Winner.

That said, if you’re a regular Amazon shopper you might want to keep hold of that subscription, as Prime members get faster delivery, exclusive deals, access to Prime Music, Prime Video and many more perks.

If you've already had a free trial, at the time of writing, a monthly Amazon Prime subscription costs $14.99/£7.99 (which you can cancel at any time) and a yearly option is $139/£79.

There's also a student plan that currently costs $7.49/£3.99 per month or $69/£39 per year.

What kind of Prime Day music deals does Amazon offer?

Amazon is certainly no slouch when it comes to music gear, but it's important to know that not every brand takes part in the Prime Day discounting. In our experience, if you're looking for money off the following brands - with a particular focus on beginner and budget gear - Prime Day on Amazon is usually a good time to shop.

  • Alesis
  • Apple (for MacBooks and iPads)
  • Audio-Technica
  • Blue Mics
  • D'Addario
  • Donner
  • Elixir
  • Fender
  • Positive Grid
  • PreSonus
  • Roland
  • Shure

We’d certainly recommend bookmarking this page and checking in regularly during the event – we’ll be sharing the best Prime Day music deals right on this page.

Will other stores be hosting Prime Day music deals?

Last year, in addition to big-name music brands rearing their heads on Amazon, there were competitive music gear discounts to be had from the likes of Fender Play, Musician’s Friend, Sweetwater and Guitar Center, plus Walmart and Best Buy covering everything from beginner acoustic guitars, to guitar wireless systems. These won't be official 'Prime Day deals', but they will be available at the same time as Amazon's own sale. 

We’re hoping to see more activity from the big music retailers in 2024 as the Prime Day competition heats up, plus more deals from software brands and companies who sell direct.

The main event might have been created by Amazon, but it's not exclusive to Amazon anymore. The buzz around Prime Day gets people in the mood for a bargain, and the big retailers know this, so will no doubt be cooking up their own music deals too.
