Cyber Monday Music Deals
Deal: Amazon Echo for $140 (here)
The online shopping giant’s signature Bluetooth speaker is marked down by the company itself, and for those who have been looking to give the product a try, this is the time. The Echo, which usually retails for $180, is down to $140, and the more compact Echo Dot is just $40, though it doesn’t come with the same functionality.
One of the biggest and most respected brands in the electronic music festival space is offering a 3-day pass to the upcoming event for just $199, which is truly a shockingly low price for such a pass. The upcoming party, which as of yet doesn’t have a date or any headliners named, is sure to sell out with or without this deal, but for just $49 down, entry to one of the coolest parties of the year can be yours.
Beats By Dre
Deal: The black Beats Pill+ for $170 (here)
Beats Pill+, the latest addition to the ever-growing Pill line from headphone and speaker maker Beats, is discounted today to encourage people to snap up the new option from one of the biggest names in the field. The speaker typically retails for about $230, but today on Amazon, the black-colored option is just $170, saving you a solid $60—now you just need to decide if this is the one for you.
Deal: Up to 50% off various software packages (here)
The company, which is one of the biggest when it comes to creating software and hardware used by DJs the world over, is offering incredible discounts on most of its products on its website. There are samplers, backing instruments that have been pre-recorded ranging from acoustic guitar to various woodwind instruments, as well as more technical offerings that are sure to please those that have been creating for years. These packs might not make great gifts for everybody, but they’re fantastic deals for EDM producers everywhere.
Deal: Reference On-Ear headphones for $50 (here)
Klipsch is not known as being one of the cheaper names in the headphone space, but if you look around and shop on the right day (which might be today), deals can be found. On NewEgg, the brand’s on-ear offerings from the Reference line are available at the almost unbelievable price of just $50, which is shocking considering they typically sell for about $200.
Deal: 20% Ableton producing products (here)
The availability of music production software has turned everybody with a laptop into a potential EDM hitmaker, but there is still plenty of software to buy, and most of that doesn’t come cheap. Ableton has earned the sterling reputation it has these days as one of the best in the field, and many a talented producer has used the company’s software to craft megahits…but again, that means it isn’t often available at discounted prices. Today, Sweetwater has almost every Ableton-branded product on sale for 20% the regular price, with items ranging from $80 to $640, meaning there is hopefully something for everybody who wants to be the next Calvin Harris or David Guetta.
