When do the Musician’s Friend Black Friday deals start?

Black Friday takes place the day after Thanksgiving, and is the last Friday in November when what seems as though every retailer on the planet launches their Black Friday sales and pre-Christmas gifting discounts. Online retailers as well as physical stores get involved, though it’s anticipated that more holiday shopping will take place online this year because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

This year Black Friday starts on Friday 27 November and lasts until Monday 30 November, known as Cyber Monday (see below). While the Musician’s Friend Black Friday deals will most probably start going live before the 27th, we expect the biggest and best discounts to go live close to that last Friday in November, on the big day itself, and across that Cyber weekend.

When do the Musician’s Friend Cyber Monday deals start?

Cyber Monday 2020 takes place on Monday 30 November, directly following on from Black Friday 2020, which takes place on Friday 27 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 history behind the name. 

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 30 November, and may even continue a few of the biggest, most unmissable Musician’s Friend Black Friday deals. 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 Black Friday 2020: What to expect

If last year’s sale is any marker, we can expect some pretty juicy savings among the incoming crop of Musician’s Friend Black Friday deals. In the past the musical instrument retailer has offered a $200 saving on the D’Angelico Premier Gramercy acoustic guitar for beginners, bringing the price of the budget acoustic down from $499 to just $299. 

We’ve also seen truly huge discounts on top-name guitar amps, including an unbelievable deal on Supro's 25-watt 1622RT Tremo-Verb - Musician’s Friend lowered the price from $1,299 down to a jaw-dropping $649.

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 Black Friday 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.
