Christmas Gifts For Musicians


in Resources

Christmas will be here quicker than you think and that means it’s a good idea to get a jump on your shopping now. Gift shopping can be pretty easy if you’re working off an exact list but if you’re making your choices from scratch it can become a pretty intimidating proposition.

If you have a musician in the family, the act of gift giving can become particularly unnerving. Musicians are known for their pickiness, especially when it comes to their music and music equipment. Luckily, there are a few gifts out there sure to please even the most discerning of musicians. Here are just a few gifts perfect for the musician on your list, no matter their instrument of choice.

A Digital Recorder Can Be a Musicians Best Friend

It’s always handy to have a recording device nearby if you’re a musician. You never know when inspiration for lyrics, a guitar part or even a band name is going to strike. With the 200m H1 Handy Recorder you’ll never miss a recordable moment. One AA battery offers 10 hours of crystal-clear high fidelity recording. And, at a size small enough to fit in your pocket, this recorder can quite literally be taken anywhere.

Nothing Beats Headphones

Headphones are the music lover’s passport to the tunes they love, so making sure the musician you care about has a great pair should be a top priority. Sennheiser HD 201 headphones offer superior sound quality at a fraction of the cost of other more expensive models.

These headphones utilize a seal ear-cup design to eliminate ambient noise and prevent bleed into an adjacently placed microphone if being used in a studio setting. Their lightweight design makes them imminently wearable but they’re still durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of frequent use.

Give The Gift Of Sound With A Great Set Of Speakers

Once the musician on your Christmas list has a good set of headphones the next thing they need is a good set of speakers. Samson’s MediaOne 4a Active Studio Monitors are a great option for the musician, recording enthusiast or simple music lover.

They’re sound quality is noticeably fuller, richer and more powerful than your typical computer speakers and their reasonable price makes them an attractive Christmas gift option. Their compact size allows them to be placed almost anywhere but don’t let that get you thinking that they don’t pack a punch.  These speakers are anchored by a power amplifier that delivers 40 watts of sound and partnered with a high quality woofer and tweeter for a very taut low end and a natural sounding high frequency response.
