2020 Guide to Reverb Black Friday, Holiday Deals, and Gift Ideas

While it's possible to find Black Friday guitar deals at big-box retailers, your choices will still be limited. The selection of speakers, microphones, acoustic guitars, synthesizers, and other audio equipment may be 10% to 50% off for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but it's still the same inventory of new gear that's been on the shelves all year.

Reverb Black Friday sales are different. Independent dealers on Reverb can and will set their own sale prices—slashing prices on their unique inventory of vintage amplifiers, synths, guitars, boutique pedals, and recording gear. And our site-wide sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday will put hundreds of thousands of deals on the table. (Check our Deals & Steals page to keep track of Early Black Friday deals as they begin and get a head start on your gift-buying this year.)

If you want brand-new gear, you can find brand-new. If you buy used, you'll save in more ways than one. And if you've been eyeing a vintage gem, 'tis the season. With Reverb's market of independent sellers, makers, and mom-and-pop operations, you can find gifts for yourself and for others you simply can't find on any other music gear site.

Now, how do you navigate this cornucopia of musical instrument savings?

Want to find must-have home-recording gear, sure-to-please gifts, and the year's most-popular effects, synths, amps, and more? We built this brand-new Reverb Holiday Buying Guide, featuring staff-selected gear for all different types of music makers. Not a musician yourself? You can have confidence that anything you see on this page will make someone very happy this season.

Say your partner has a budding interest in synthesizers, but you don't know Arturia from Elektron. Through our Holiday Buying Guide, you can find the perfect synth—or, for that matter, the perfect podcasting mic, studio headphones, snare drums, and plenty more.

The gift-shopping scenarios on all of our horizons are varied—and there's nothing worse than planning a thoughtful gift only to learn later you've made the wrong purchase. We're here to help you through all manner of gift-giving needs.


While Black Friday guitar sales will soon enough bleed into Cyber Monday synth deals, don't forget about Small Business Saturday. As the virtual home to thousands of small businesses and independent makers, we'll be showcasing their wares Saturday, November 28. Be on the lookout here.
