Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals 2021: Effects pedal deals

TC Electronic Ditto Jam X2 Looper: $199, now $159 (opens in new tab)
The Ditto Jam may look unassuming, but it’s actually one of the smartest looper pedals on the market, especially if you’re looping as part of a band. It features built-in microphones that detect the tempo of your rhythm section, automatically adjusting your loop to stay in time with the rest of the band. As anyone who has attempted live looping with a drummer can attest, this feature is worth its weight in gold. Otherwise, the X2 sticks to the straightforward Ditto format, with separate record/overdub and play/stop footswitches for easy operation.

Singular Sound Aeros Loop Studio: $699, now $599 (opens in new tab)
One of the most advanced looper pedals you can get your hands on, the Aeros is so packed with features, it blurs the line between looper and DAW. Chief among its feature set is a 4.3” touchscreen, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, expression pedal support and SD card compatibility. Perhaps most impressive is the ability to create a ridonkulous 36 loops per song – with unlimited overdubs per loop – making this a solo loop performer’s dream, particularly with $100 off at Guitar Center.

MXR M303 Clone Looper: was $149, now $129 (opens in new tab)
MXR’s entry to the looper pedal market is one for the connoisseurs. It reproduces loops at a super-high sample rate of 88.2kHz, and features analog dry-through, so it won’t mess with your tone. Up to six minutes of recording time is onboard, with unlimited overdubs, but the pièce de résistance is the half-speed and reverse effects, accessed by pushing the volume knob. It’s a nicely sized addition to any ’board, particularly at this reduced price. Still on the fence? Have a read of our MXR Clone Looper review (opens in new tab).

Keeley ECCOS Delay and Looper: was $249, now $211 (opens in new tab)
The ECCOS is a smart space-saving option for tightly packed pedalboards, teaming a delay pedal and looper in one twin-footswitched company pedal. Of course, this being a Keeley pedal, there’s more to it than that: the delay offers tonesome tape-style echoes, while the looper delivers reverse and half-speed functions, as well as a ‘play-once’ trigger. With loops that gradually degrade over time like an old-school reel to reel, this is one for the vintage enthusiasts, and it's all the more tempting with 15% knocked off the price at Guitar Center.

Line 6 Helix: free Helix Native & Cubase Elements (opens in new tab)
The Helix is Line 6’s flagship guitar processor, packing a dizzying array of ultra-accurate amp and effects models, all navigated via an intuitive interface that makes dialing in its tonal delights a breeze. For Cyber Monday, you can also equip yourself with the Helix Native plugin, which injects the unit’s gold-standard tones into your DAW, as well as a whole DAW, Cubase Elements, with your purchase. It’s the perfect way to get into recording – and it’s included free!

Line 6 Helix LT: free Helix Native & Cubase Elements (opens in new tab)
The LT sacrifices a few of the full-fat Helix’s lesser-used features – aux and mic inputs, external amp switching and scribble strips – but for the vast majority of players, it delivers all the tones and flexibility you could possibly desire, and at $999, it’s $500 cheaper, too. Add in a free Helix Native plugin and Cubase Elements DAW, and it’s a no-brainer.

Line 6 HX Stomp XL: free bag worth $79 (opens in new tab)
If you like the idea of the HX Stomp, but your insatiable lust for footswitches has you craving a higher shoe-to-click ratio, the XL is ya boi. Eight footswitches in a space-sensitive enclosure, complete with the same awe-inspiring feature set as its lil’ brother, supersizes the HX Stomp format in every sense. But don’t worry: all that functionality will still fit in its chic HX Messenger Bag, normally $79, but included gratis for a limited time only.

Line 6 POD Go: free bag worth $69 (opens in new tab)
The POD Go is the cheapest entry point to Line 6’s cutting-edge HX family of tones, so you get all the amp-modeling goodness, based on real tube tone, as well as Line 6’s sterling effects legacy, all in a gig-ready floor unit complete with expression pedal. It’s enough to provide your entire rig in one box, but how are you going to transport it? Guitar Center’s got you covered with this sweet Line 6 shoulder bag, which is foam-padded, custom-designed to fit the POD Go like a glove, and included for absolutely nothing. Kerching!

Line 6 POD Go Wireless: free bag worth $69 (opens in new tab)
Cables are so last century. You know who agrees? Line 6. So much so that the company crammed wireless tech into the latest version of its Helix tone-packing POD Go, giving you up to 100 feet of wireless freedom for those arena stages you’re working towards. A Relay G10 transmitter is included, so you’re good to go from the off, and all the regular POD Go’s killer feature set is onboard, too – now with a free bag!

JHS PackRat Distortion: $249, now $211.65 (opens in new tab)
It's no secret how JHS frontman, Josh Scott feels about the RAT. It comes as no surprise then, that he would lovingly recreate all the most important iterations of this beloved distortion and place them all in one box. This pedal was only released weeks ago and you can bag $37.35 off right now!

Guitar Center Cyber Monday: FAQ

Cyber Monday is the name given to the Monday after Black Friday and Cyber Weekend. Many online retailers (such as Guitar Center) will be continuing their outstanding Black Friday deals, and sometimes adding a few more special offers into the mix. If you want a brand new piece of guitar gear, then Cyber Monday is a great time to grab it. 

This year, Cyber Monday will be on Monday 29 November. If last year's Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals are anything to go by, we are likely to see some brilliant deals. 

Guitar Center Cyber Monday: What to expect

In the past, Guitar Center has offered big money off Fender Player Strats in Surf Pearl, Shell Pink and a very Gilmour-esque black-on-black, bringing their prices down  from $699 to $599. The gorgeous compact Vox AC10 was available for a whisper under $500 after a $100 discount, too.

Acoustic guitarists were looked after handsomely with the fantastic Gretsch G5027CE having $100 slashed from it's retail price. The Fender California Newporter in Teal Satin was another absolute steal, at only $329.99. 

For those who only communicate with sweep-picking and chugs, the Jackson Pro Soloist SLQ2 in Northern Lights came in at $799, after having $200 knocked off its asking price. The Schecter C-1 Platinum also saw big discounts last year. 

We're expecting this year's Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals to be equally as excellent, with savings on everything from the best metal guitarselectric guitar stringspedalboards and more Fender Stratocasters and Telecasters.

Guitar Center Cyber Monday: How to prepare

Our biggest bit of advice when it comes to Cyber Monday preparation is to DO YOUR RESEARCH! Read up on all the products you need (and all the things you want) and make sure you know them inside out. Make a note of the RRP too - that way you'll know for sure if you're getting a good deal. 

We've got a massive collection of expert buyer's guides and product reviews to make your research a lot easier - so it's worth taking a look at the relevant guides and getting to grips with the products you're into.

Should I buy from Guitar Center online during Cyber Monday?

If you're concerned about buying a guitar or any other gear from Guitar Center this Cyber Monday without having tried it out first, there's no need to be. Guitar Center's return policy (opens in new tab) is one of the best around, allowing you to return most gear within a window of 45 days. This means you can afford to purchase a guitar or anything else, play it at home, and make up your mind within a few weeks. 

It's worth checking the specifics, as some vintage, custom ordered and music tech gear is subject to different rules however. 

What else can I buy during Cyber Monday 2021?

Well, you can buy pretty much anything this Cyber Monday. You'll find deals on loads of awesome tech like Google Home, iPads, MacBook Pros, Ring doorbells and more - and even random stuff like potato chips, cologne, shower heads... the list goes on.
