Holiday shopping for guitar and bass players can be a bit of a tricky prospect for non-musicians. To help make things easier for you, we’ve rounded up the top 6 gifts for guitarists under $25.
Ernie Ball 10′ Instrument Cable – $19.99
Many guitar and bass players play through an amplifier, which means they’re always in need of quality cables. Ernie Ball Instrument Cables feature a high-end design made with superior components that are built to last. Instrument Cables transmit a clean transparent signal that is superbly quiet while accurately and faithfully delivering all the frequencies your instrument produces. These cables feature a dual-shielded, dual-conductor design and custom shell casing resulting in a tangle-resistant cable with clear sound, low handling noise, and roadworthy durability. 99.99% oxygen-free copper to resist corrosion. Flexible, tangle resistant construction. Voiced for a natural, transparent sound with balanced frequency response. Durable shell casing for lasting performance. Available in a variety of color, length and plug angle configurations.
Tone Packs – $19.99
Stringed instruments require strings, which just so happens to be our specialty. The question is: which strings are the right strings? Ernie Ball Tone Packs were developed to give players the opportunity to play a variety of our most popular alloys in the string gauge they prefer. Our Acoustic Tone Packs are available in both Light and Medium Light gauges, and include a pack of Earthwood 80/20 Bronze alloy strings, a pack of Earthwood Phosphor Bronze alloy strings, and a pack of Aluminum Bronze alloy strings.
Ernie Ball T-Shirts – $19.99
There’s no better way to show the world that you’re a guitar or bass-slinging rock star than with one of our Ernie Ball t-shirts. These shirts have a super soft, vintage feel and are available in a variety of styles, colors and sizes. What’s more Rock and Roll than a classic, vintage style t-shirt, especially one that features the most well-known guitar strings on the planet?
PowerPeg String Winder – $23.99
The most time-consuming aspect of changing guitar and bass strings is the time it takes to wind and unwind the strings. The Ernie Ball PowerPeg is the first of its kind self-contained motorized pegwinder that allows you to restring your instrument up to 70% faster than traditional manual pegwinders. The PowerPeg is powered by 4 AA batteries (not included), and features a proprietary universal peg head that fits virtually all bass, acoustic, and electric guitar tuning machines.
*Also available: PowerPeg Pro
Ernie Ball Hats – $19.99
The Rock and Roll lifestyle frequently includes playing five shows in two days while packed into the back of a van with your bandmates, usually without a shower. A good hat is a lifesaver in this situation. Show your Ernie Ball pride with these Ernie Ball logo caps. Available in a variety of colors in both traditional and trucker styles, with adjustable snap back closure.
Guitar picks are a sure-fire win in terms of getting a guitar or bass player something they can really use. Ernie Ball picks come in a wide variety of styles, sizes, colors and materials.
