Gift Ideas For Guitarists

Gift Ideas For Guitarists

So many options when it comes to buying guitar accessories as a gift for someone else.

Let us help you by offering you some suggestions that all guitarists need and love.

1. Capo

A capo is a helpful device that allows you to easily change the key of a song while using the standard “open position” chords that every guitarist knows. Both electric and acoustic guitarists use these.

A budget option is the Dunlop J14CD capo, suitable for either an electric or acoustic guitar.

Looking for something a little more upmarket?

The Dunlop JC83CD might be the way to go!

Looking for more control over string pitch and placement from a capo? The G7th Newport Capo offers a small, light and beautifully-formed, low-profile, flip lever guitar capo. The best thing about this? It allows the player to fine-tune the tension for buzz-free, tuneful capoing.

2. Strings

Strings don't last as long as many players (or parents) think they do. Fresh strings will make the guitar sound better, will tune more accurately, and feel better under the fingers.

D'Addario's EJ27 Classic Nylon guitar strings are great for beginners, students and professionals alike. Each set contains 3 clear nylon trebles and 3 silver-plated copper wound basses for the optimal balance of warm and projecting, long lasting tone.

Fender Fender 70L phosphor bronze acoustic guitar strings deliver rich, warm tone with complex harmonics and excellent highs.

Fender Super 250's electric guitar strings combine the high output and dynamic sound of steel with the smooth feel of nickel. These versatile ball-end string sets are ideal for any type of music, but particularly rock, blues and other styles with cutting, articulate tone.

Elixir® Strings Acoustic Phosphor Bronze with NANOWEB®Coating deliver distinctive phosphor bronze warmth and sparkle together with extended tone life.

Elixir® Electric Nickel Plated Steel Strings with NANOWEB®Coating deliver the presence, punch, and personality of traditional electric guitar strings but with extended tone life.

3. Boss RC-1 Looper.

A loop pedal is a great gift for any guitarist. It is great for practice, songwriting, or performances. 

The Boss RC-1 is simple to use, and can add lots of fun to playing. The guitarist records a part, such as a chord progression, and then play-along with what they have done, or add in another part (or more). 

4.Guitar Strap

An essential accessory for all guitarists.

5. Tuner

A guitar that is in tune is a beautiful thing. A tuner will help the player achieve this.

6. Pedal Power Supply

A dedicated power supply for pedals is always a great idea. 

The Mini Iso-Brick Power Supply supplies quiet, noise-free DC power to wide range of pedal types while taking up less space than a candy bar. Whether you need a space-saving solution for your downsized travel board or you just need to power a small, carefully curated selection of tried-and-true staples, this little box has what you need.
