Christmas is quickly approaching, and what could make a better gift than a guitar accessory? I’ve included some popular items below based on feedback that I’ve received from this site. Hopefully it will help you find that special gift.
Electric Guitar Beginner Starter Pack ($99)
This is a great gift idea for children who are interested in taking up electric guitar. It includes everything you need to get going straight away. A mini amp with overdrive, pick and strap are part of the package.
Folding Hand Truck ($40)
Transporting heavy equipment has to be the least favorable part of playing music. Many guitar players are faced with the issue of carrying heavy tube-based amplifiers. This folding hand truck from Welcom will streamline the carrying process, and can handle PA speakers too.
Stage Ninja Mic Clamp ($35)
The Stage Ninja eliminates the need for a boom stand, and simply allows you to clip your mic to the rim of your amp. It includes industrial steel clamps that have a lifetime warranty.
GigMate Tool Kit ($30)
This tool kit contains all the necessary accessories that are essential for maintaining a guitar. Any guitarist will need one of the included tools somewhere down the line, which results in this being a great gift idea.
iRig Guitar Interface ($40)
This device allows you to plug your guitar into your mobile device, and access a variety of vintage and modern amplifiers via IK Multimedia's Amplitube app. This essentially allows you to play, practice and record from any location.
EBow with Free Tuner ($100)
The electronic bow creates a magnetic field which vibrates a guitar string and creates unlimited sustain. It's been used by a number of bands including Metallica, Radiohead and Pearl Jam.
Rocker Wig Deluxe ($20)
This rocker wig will instantly make you look like Slash from Guns N' Roses. It can work great as a costume idea, or for live gigs.
Pyle-Pro Professional Microphone ($12)
This is a clone of the Shure SM57, which is widely used for guitar amplifiers. It can achieve remarkably similar sound quality for a tenth of the price.
DIY Pick Maker ($20)
The Pick Punch allows you to create your own picks out of a wide variety of materials, such as plastic lids and expired credit cards. Every guitar player eventually finds themselves without a pick, and the Pick Punch makes this a problem of the past.
