Black Friday For Musicians

We all love a deal and Black Friday is the day for it, so I decided to put together my own BF list especially for musicians. Here are some cool items that make great gifts for any musician or engineer (and the prices are great as well).

Social Media Promotion For Musicians cover image


Social Media Promotion For Musicians - If you don't have the online presence or response you think you should, then this book's for you. Covers Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, Pinterest, bookmarking sites like Digg and Delicious, your website, blog and mailing list. Take 20% off  on the print version today only by using code 2HJQXWBT (the Kindle version is already discounted).





Blocklite LED flashlight image



Blocklite - This goes under the category of "Why didn't I think of that?". Blocklite is a simple LED add-on to any 9 volt battery that turns it into a flashlight that's perfect for checking all those dark spaces during a session or show. Cheap too at only $3.54 each.







Monoprice 8323 Headphones - Tired of spending big money on replacing trashed headphones? At $32 you won't find a cheaper and better sounding replacement.







Mixing Engineer's Handbook 3rd Edition - Are your mixes not sounding the way you think they should? The latest version of the Mixing Engineer's Handbook (written especially for the home or small studio) to the rescue. New interviews and a new "advanced" chapter make it a must have for any musician who records.







Etymonic Research ER20 Earplugs - The best earplugs on the planet, they reduce the volume but don't change the frequency response. I don't know what I'd do without them. You'll use them more than you ever thought. Only $12 a pair.








lynda.com online training tutorialsLynda.com - Have you ever wanted to learn a piece of software, but hated the "how-to" videos you found on YouTube with bad audio and lighting and people that barely know what they're doing? Try Lynda.com, with more than 1500 courses with super high production values by experts and in small digestible bites. Check out my courses, and get 7 days free of unlimited access to lynda.com.


Tascam Vocal and Instrument Trainer/Recorder - This is a unit that I wish I had when I was starting out. It allows you to slow down an MP3 or a recording so you can figure out exactly what's being played. At 44 bucks it can't be beat. There's a dedicated Guitar Trainer as well.





Recording Engineer's Handbook 3rd Edition - Not sure how to mic a tabla, marimba or fiddle? Here's the book that will show you not only one, but multiple ways how as well as the principles behind getting a great recording every time. Invaluable to the recording musician.










Pyle Pro PCT 40 Cable Checker - The average studio or sound system today has so many different types of cables that troubleshooting can sometimes be difficult. Enter the PCT40 cable checker, about the most comprehensive unit that you'll find, testing all the audio connection flavors as well as USB, Ethernet and Speakon. A steal at $35.








Snark SN-1 Guitar Tuner - We've all gotten used to using software guitar tuners, but when you want to tune as fast as possible, this is the best tuner I've found. It clips right onto the guitar so you don't even have to plug it in. At $7.99 each, it's unbeatable.
