Well, day two of Amazon’s October Prime event is in full swing and there are still plenty of deals to be had. The online retail giant’s site is awash with great deals on beginner electric guitars, popular practice amps, budget guitar pedals as well as a whole host of recording gear.
That said, the deals aren’t just reserved for Prime members, as all the major music retailers have their own sales running at the moment. So if you’re looking for a discount on a big-name brand, then you may want to look off Amazon and set your sights on the likes of Musician’s Friend, Guitar Center or Sweetwater.
Now, I’ve been covering this type of sales event for years, so I know a good deal when I see it. I’ve spent the last few days trawling through countless pages of offers and here are the deals I’m considering this Prime Day.
Of course, if you aren't quite ready to splash the cash just yet, the Black Friday guitar deals will be launching at the end of next month. So be sure to keep an eye on Guitar World for the very best deals over the entire Cyber Weekend.

D'Addario NYXL Strings: 24% off at Amazon
These premium strings from D'Addario have long been my go to. For me, the don't just sound better, but they stay in tune better and are practically unbreakable. So when there's a discount of 24% on Amazon, I'll be stocking up.

Fender Vintera '70s Tele:

IK Multimedia AmpliTube 5 SE:
$149.99, now $59.99
If you’re looking to start recording but feel you’re lacking in sounds, virtual gear is usually the way to go, giving you countless amps and effects at your fingertips, minus the outlay of loads of physical gear. We loved the full fat version of AmpliTube 5 when we reviewed it – awarding it 5 stars – but this stripped back Special Edition is a great place to start if your budget won’t stretch.
