    Being a relatively recent 'thing' over here I think guitar shops are a bit better prepared this year than on previous years. I know that at least one major guitar store have some genuinely great guitar deals coming for Black Friday.
    Wicked I can’t wait.

    Amazon had plenty of Digitech Polara reverb pedals last year for £80.

    I picked one up thanks to seeing a heads-up on here. They also had a limited number of the Obscura delay pedals for £80, but they were first offered to Prime customers and none were left after they went on general sale.
    There were some left as they ran the promo 3 or 4 times. I got both, but don't have prime. The year before I got a les paul junior foe £280, now that was a bargain.

  • I think it can be a good time if you are open minded.

    By this I mean you have a bit of spare cash and are looking for something "nice". You can just lok at the offers until something grabs your attention.

    The down side ide is if you are after a specific item you can be swayed to get something that is not exactly what you wanted, but is cheap.

  • FYI Amazon have a few ongoing deals with some Digitech pedals such as the Ventura Vibe which I've backordered purely for a decent rotary setting.

    Amazon are just price-matching Thomann on the Ventura Vibe.

    Even the scammers are jumping on the BF bandwagon.  Saw an ad on FB for studio gear going cheap for Black Friday. Same lot as Ibanezmall with registered address as per Dawsons in Warrington.

  • I've only been back playing guitar since the start of this year, so have never seen what 'Black Friday' is like with music gear retailers.

    In previous years have the major gear retailers (GG, PMT, Andertons) taken part in the Black Friday frenzy that other retail sectors do? And if so, is there ever much decent stuff available or is it mostly just trying to shift a bunch of naff, unwanted stock that they couldn't sell anywhere near RRP?

    Still mulling over options for buying a new amp, but wondering whether I should hold out for a couple of weeks and see if I can grab a bargain...  s
    Ive been working on Reverb's all week and its looking very good......

    The main issue for MI retailers is that margins on most gear are pretty slim as it is, especially when compared with other industries, eg fashion, so Black Friday is not particularly welcome many smaller retailers, especially as they have to compete on price with the usual suspects online.

    It seems to be that people are holding off buying gear at the moment in hope of getting some Black Friday bargains, maybe not even a guitar, but other consumer items.

    As ever these "innovations" very much favour the larger operations at the expense of smaller retailers.

    This year the sales have been a bit limp really, no amazing bargains.

    Ironically some of the best bargains I saw were in Coda's sale, I was very tempted by the Flying V's in Wine Red, sadly they all sold before I could make my mind up!

  • I don't like the sales, it's a joke for when you buy any other time of the year.

    Well there is also an underlying silliness to the sales.

    For example, the Xbox One X costs £450, a big pile of cash for a games console that also plays those new Blu Rays for people who stand next to their TVs to watch them.

    On Black Friday....£430!  As if that £20 would influence your buying decision!

  • my best black friday bargain was picking up an 'as new' katana for 207 using the 20% warehouse deals. I can give it a try now see what the hype is. I'm using a helix for my guitar right now and may try using it to power it instead of my speaker. Plus it'll serve as back up if the helix ever plays up!
