Musician's Friend Cyber Monday deals 2021: FAQ

Cyber Monday 2021 takes place on Monday 29 November, directly following on from Musician's Friend Black Friday, which takes place on Friday 26 November. Cyber Monday was originally launched as a way to encourage a whole day of online (cyber) shopping. That seems ridiculous now, considering how many of us regularly shop online, but that’s the origin of this mega sales event. 

Cyber Monday bookends a big weekend of holiday shopping, officially kick-started by Black Friday and coming in ahead of any last-minute pre-Christmas deals retailers offer. 

The Musician’s Friend Cyber Monday sale will run straight through 29 November, with a few of the deals lasting a little longer. We’re expecting a bumper crop of savings this year, and we’ll be rounding them up right here as and when the deals go live.

Musician's Friend Cyber Monday deals 2021: What to expect

If last year’s sale is anything to go by, we can expect some pretty juicy savings among the incoming crop of Musician’s Friend Cyber Monday deals. In the past the musical instrument retailer has offered a $120 saving on the Martin Special X1-DE, bringing the price of this stunning acoustic down from $599 to just $479. 

Last year we also saw a truly huge discount on the shred-tasic Schecter C-1, which saw $170 knocked off the retail price. 

The retailer also offers a clear and concise returns policy, so you can return items risk-free if doesn't quite suit - make sure you read the terms and conditions first. Last year's Musician’s Friend Cyber Monday deals covered a range of top guitar and bass brands, such as Gretsch, Yamaha, and Fender, with up to 15% discounts on orders over $99 with a Musician’s Friend coupon.

We fully expect this year's sale to bring more of the same, with excellent savings on everything from the best metal guitars and guitar wireless systems, through to the best electric guitar strings and even the latest pedalboards.
