Home Recording & Studio Gear: Cyber Monday Deals (2023)

Home Recording & Studio Gear: Holiday Deals (2023)

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are gone, but the shopping season is only getting started!

Christmas is just around the corner, so we must think about what gifts we want to give to our loved ones.

This time of the year, many Christmas sales are happening at Amazon, Sweetwater and Guitar Center.

Whether you’re looking to build your home recording studio or improve your existing setup, the holiday season is a great chance to level up your music game and save some money!

Update 9 a.m. December 11: Some of the Cyber Monday deals are gone but some are still available, so make sure to check out the list below!

Christmas is Coming:

Amazon Deals

Amazon Cyber Monday

Based on the previous years, Amazon don’t keep the Black Friday sale for long and switch their focus to Cyber Monday as soon as Friday ends. Most of their Cyber Monday deals are the same, so there’s definitely a lot of overlapping going on.

Some interesting deals are available in Amazon’s Musical Instruments department, including microphones, studio monitors, and audio interfaces.

Sweetwater Deals

Sweetwater Black Friday

Yesterday Sweetwater announced their Cyber Monday sale, which they traditionally call Cyber Week.

Many of their Black Friday deals are still available, so take advantage while it lasts, especially considering that last year most of the deals weren’t even real discounts and simply included small gifts (e.g., accessories, subscriptions, etc.) due to supply shortages.

Guitar Center Deals

Guitar Center Black Friday

Guitar Center, one of the biggest and most reputable audio gear retailers in the US (along with Sweetwater), still has most of its Black Friday deals available over the weekend.

Today Guitar Center started their Cyber Monday sale for two days till November 29, so act fast while the deals are still available!

Gear4Music & Thomann (UK, Europe & Canada) Deals

Gear4music Thomann Cyber Monday

I don’t remember Thomann ever having any special deals around Black Friday, but this time is different! Just before Black Friday, they will launch their Cyberweek sale, which offers up to 60% discounts.

Also, keep in mind that Thomann’s prices are already some of the lowest out there.

Gear4Music, which is another major music retailer based in the UK, also have a few interesting deals available on their Black Friday Sale page, though just as in Thomann’s case, don’t expect a ton of deals here.

Traditionally, European retailers have lower prices compared to the US, and they don’t run as many sales.

Amazon UK and Amazon Canada have several pages of Musical Instrument deals but I haven’t yet found many audio gear options on sale.
