2. Snark SN-8 Super-Tight All-Instrument Tuner
Next on our list of great gifts to get a musician is the Snark SN-8 Super-Tight All-Instrument Tuner. This is a gift that any musician out there needs to have. The Snark SN-8 has super tight tuning, no matter what you play. This makes for a reliable tuner since you know its not going to fall off in the middle of tuning your instrument! Oh, and not only can the Snark SN-8 stay put, but it can also rotate 360 degrees! So for all the lefties out there, this is the tuner you cant pass up!
Another great feature about the Snark SN-8 is its easy to read screen. No matter if you're playing at an outdoor event during the day, or playing in a club at night, the Snark SN-8's vibrant color display and large letters let you tune with ease.
3. Truetone 1 Spot Power Supply
The Truetone 1 SPOT Power Supply is a 9V DC adapter that only takes up to 1 Spot on a power outlet (Hence the name, 1 SPOT). If you know someone who plays a guitar, this is a great gift to get them. The 1 SPOT lets you run power to an entire pedalboard without using up tons of outlets. This is important considering you don't want to waste space with a bunch of adapters. It also solves an annoying problem that guitarists and bassists have fought with for many years. The 1 SPOT can be paired with optional multi-plug cable(s) for powering more than one pedal - power up to twenty pedals (1700mA max!) with the 1 SPOT!
4. D'Addario Planet Waves Microfiber Polishing Cloth
No matter what instrument someone plays, it's important to keep that instrument clean. The D'Addario Planet Waves Microfiber Polishing Cloth is an extremely useful cleaning cloth. It's made up of 80% polyester and 20% nylon. Microfiber is preferred for its very lightweight, extreme absorbency, and its rapid drying properties. You can use this polishing cloth on basically any material, which makes its useful for any instrument. It’s perfect for removing dust and leaving a nice shine to your instrument.
5. D'Addario Planet Waves Classic Instrument Cable Straight-Straight 20'
The Planet Waves Classic Series Instrument Cable is a great-sounding cable that is known for its durability. Just like everything on this list, the Planet Waves Instrument Cable is a great gift for your favorite musician. It's known for pure signal transparency and of course a long lasting life. You wont have to worry about having to make a trip to a music store every other month because your cable broke. Nickel-plated plugs and oxygen-free copper ensure that Classic Series Instrument Cables remains highly conductive. The Planet Waves Instrument Cable also has dense shielding and molded strain reliefs, which helps keep handling noise at a minimum and extend the life span of each cable. Not to mention that its also 20 feet long! This gives you plenty of room to rock out at your next event!
