Don’t let price tags make you cringe! You don’t have to go overboard in dollar signs to find a great gift for the musicians in your life. With tons of celebrations around the bend, here are are some great gift ideas to help you check off your holiday list:
Any recording musician will love the Go Mic! Its custom, compact design allows them to take it just about anywhere, clip it right onto their laptop, or stand it alone on a flat desk. Compatible with both Mac and PC, the Go Mic features switchable cardioid and omni polar patterns, as well as a 20Hz-18kHz frequency response, 1/8″ headphone output, and 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution for the ultimate in portability, versatility, and audio quality.
Virtually anything can be done on a phone in today’s digital era, and there are tons of music and recording apps to prove it, but phone placement can sometimes get a little tricky. Solve the problem with the stealth of a ninja using the Stage Ninja FON-9-CB. This Scorpion Series clamp securely holds all smartphones up to 3.6″ wide and acts as a convenient stand on any flat surface – so no more dropping the phone right before you hit that last note. Its segmented gooseneck also enables 360 degrees of free rotation for simple positioning.
Pops may be positively captivating when you prepare a bowl of Rice Krispies, but they’re one of the worst sounds you can hear in vocals. Thankfully, the MD2/PS05 has a dual-layer 4.5″ nylon mesh to rid recording of p-pops. A weighted die-cast metal base provides stable positioning, while a durable 7.25″ gooseneck gives your musician a wide range of flexible options. It also features a ball joint mount for full-circle filter rotation and a C-clamp mount to fit most microphone stand shafts.
It’s already a great feeling to be able to play an instrument, but being able to build your own instrument adds a whole new level of fun to the experience. Kids and adults alike will have a blast adding their own personal touch to this drum. Let them assembly it individually at their own pace, or make it into a memorable team effort. The pack includes all necessary parts from wood panels and battens to a snare, rubber feet, and screws. Once they complete their project, they’ll have a real Meinl cajon to play for years to come!
