There aren’t many companies that can boast as comprehensive a library of plugins as Waves, and there are even fewer who offer discounts this colossal: the esteemed FX company is offering a whopping 50% off all its plugins in one of this year’s best Prime Day guitar deals.

For guitarists, that’s very, very good news indeed. That means you could get yourself a comprehensive modeling suite, such as Waves GT3 or PRS SuperModels for as little as $29, while FX staples such as the CLA-76 Compressor and Renaissance Axx can also be had for under $30.

To take advantage of this killer deal, load up your cart with your chosen plugins and use the code HALF to get the discount. Even better, spending $50 nets you one free plugin, $90 gets two, and $120 lands you three free – these free options will be emailed to you once you make your purchase.
