Christmas is done, that turkey is history (well, almost), and music retailers and manufacturers are yet again making eyes at your apparently-insatiable wallet.
They'll all be vying for your attention and hard-earned dollar with eye-catching after Christmas and January music gear deals.

While we will be bringing you deals galore, there are some things we are unable to control. Such a busy time of online consumerism will attract some shifty folk; people who will be trying their best in doing you out of your money. So be sure that your anti-malware software is up to date, as phishers, fraudsters and scammers will be looking to target the most vulnerable.
Do your homework, too, as some manufacturers may inflate their prices just before the holiday season, just to make some deals look more attractive than others. Websites like CamelCamelCamel can show you historical price changes so you can determine if a deal is real.
Of course, it’s not all about music equipment as there will be an even more phenomenal number of deals to be had on all tech and home products. To help you with that, check out our sister site TechRadar for the latest discounts on that 4K HDR OLED TV you’ve always wanted. Not to mention iPhone X deals, now that Apple has announced the new Xs, Xs Max and XR phones.
