The Best Of New Music Gear Monday

Here we are at another Cyber Monday and I thought I'd do something different this year. Here are the top 10 most popular items in the mostly below $500 range that appeared on New Music Gear Monday in the last year. You'll find that they'll be pretty good gifts for either yourself or the musician or engineer that helped you so much on your recent projects.

Zoom H6 and accessoriesZoom H6 Hand-Held Digital Recorder - Everyone loves hand-held digital recorders but most are limiting in that they're only two or four channels. The Zoom H6 can record up to 6 channels, making it perfect for those quick field recordings where 4 tracks just isn't enough. Find out more and see a video about it here.









IsoAcoustics speaker standsIsoAcoustics Speaker Stands - Just about the quickest way to improve your playback system is to isolate the speakers from the desk or console they're sitting on. While you can do that with a piece of foam, the problem is correctly aiming the speakers, and that's where the IsoAcoustics speaker stands shine. Oh, and they provide a lot more isolation that foam isolaters as well. Find out more and see a video about them here.
