The Darkest of Fridays
You need gear. More over, you need your gear cheap. If you're in the market now for musical gear, well, you're in luck: November is the month of savings. Today is Black Friday and a lot of people will be hitting the stores early for impressive deals, mostly on electronic items. You might choose to be included in this, which is fine, but I'd advise against it if you're going for musical equipment. Unless you have a great music store near to where you live which is offering Black Friday sales, you won't really find what you're looking for. Instead, Cyber Monday is your best bet. And here's why...
Cyber Monday is the Monday after Black Friday, just after Thanksgiving in America. Cyber Monday is pretty much what it sounds like: Black Friday, only internet sales and on a Monday. This works well for buying music gear because there are some really great music websites that sell well below the MSRP, and, as they're online, more often than not, offer Cyber Monday deals.
With Cyber Monday, it's important to note that you'll rarely find exactly what you're searching for at a specific site. Instead, I'll recommend you search general websites such as amazon.com or even cybermonday.com. These sites are collectives of many individuals and companies alike offering Cyber Monday discounts.
CyberMonday.com in particular offers an interesting service. If you look up a specific good you're searching for, they give you websites which are offering sales on that item, or similar items.
This is really all I have to write on this, as anything further should be discovered for yourself. I highly recommend checking this out before and during Cyber Monday, especially if you're in the market for new gear.
