Given the popularity of IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube, Positive Grid BIAS and Fender Play, we’re increasingly turning to the iPad for our modeling and recording needs - and if you’re looking for an upgrade, these huge discounts on Apple’s flagship tablet could be the best Black Friday guitar deal of all.

Right now, you can snap up the 32GB WiFi version of the latest 10.2” model for just $249, down from $329 - it’s unlikely you’ll see a lower price than this throughout the Black Friday period.

If you need even more space for your apps and recordings, the 128GB version has received a whopping $100 discount, bringing it down to $329 from its original price of $429.
