When is Black Friday in 2023?
Black Friday 2023 is on Friday, November 24th, where we'd expect deals to continue throughout the weekend, also known as Cyber Weekend, and culminating with Cyber Monday on November 27th.
However, it's worth noting that the excitement won't be limited to just those four days. In recent years it tends to start earlier, with a lot of Black Friday guitar deals surfacing well before the day-of. We usually start checking retailers more regularly at the beginning of November.
Should I buy guitar gear online during Black Friday?
If you're apprehensive about purchasing a guitar or other gear on Black Friday without the opportunity to try it beforehand, you can always fall back on a return. Guitar Center, Musician’s Friend, and Sweetwater all have hassle-free return policies.
Any retailer worth their salt, especially when it comes to musical instruments, will have a generous return policy.
This means you can buy a guitar pedal (or whatever piece of gear), try it out in the comfort and privacy of your own home, and then if it doesn't meet your expectations, you can return it without any hassle.
It's always a good practice to review the specific return policy of your chosen retailer before making a purchase. However, in most cases, these retailers provide a window of 30 to 45 days for returns, as long as the item is in its original condition.
Black Friday Shopping Tips
Here are some pointers we'd recommend keeping in mind for getting the most out of Black Friday, whether you're buying guitar pedals or some other piece of gear.
- Plan ahead with a wishlist: Knowing what you're looking for in advance simplifies the search process. It saves you from sifting through deals you're not interested in and helps you avoid impulse purchases. Intentionality when shopping is always a good thing.
- Think about what you actually need: Take a close look at your favorite brands and identify what you genuinely need and will use.
- Consider your goals as musician: Think about your musical aspirations for the coming year. Do you want to perform more, learn a new instrument, or record your own songs? Black Friday could be the perfect time to invest in gear that supports these goals.
- Evaluate your current gear: Assess whether you have enough space in your collection for new gear. Consider selling or trading unused equipment to make room and generate funds for new additions. Reverb is a great place for selling gear.
