A quick glance at the date would suggest that this year's Black Friday record player deals should be over - but no! Even though midnight has come and gone, there are still loads of great deals to be found on record players. This sales weekend is one of the best times of year to shop for a new turntable - and our team of audio experts have spent years keeping our ear to the ground for the best deals. And even if you miss out this weekend, we'll also be highlighting a bunch of our favourite Cyber Monday record player deals too.

For example, if you're looking for a hot deal right off the bat, Amazon have cut the price of the fully automatic Audio-Technica AT-LP3BK by 20%, taking the price down from $249 to $199. If you're browsing from the UK and fancy something budget but awesome, there's an £70 off the nifty House Of Marley Stir It Up deck, also at Amazon.

And don't forget to check in with our Black Friday vinyl deals hub to stock up on fresh wax to test your new deck – there's always some great bargains to be had over there.

If you're not sure where to start, we'd recommend heading to our expert buyer's guides first, where we have tops picks on budget turntables, Bluetooth turntables and portable record players. If you're completely new to playing vinyl, we also have a guide to the best record player's for beginners to help get you up and running with confidence. 

On this page we've included an FAQ, some shopping tips and highlights from previous years to guide you in the right direction, too.

Black Friday record player deals FAQ

When is Black Friday?

This year Black Friday is set to take place on Friday November 24 – and is always held the day after Thanksgiving in the US. Once an America-only event, the rise in internet shopping habits in particular means that just about everyone gets involved these days. If you have something on your wishlist, the likelihood is you'll find it for less, somewhere, on Black Friday.

The Black Friday weekend is followed quickly by the Cyber Monday record player deals, this year landing on November 27 – a day of discounts that was traditionally given over to the more techy side of things. As with previous years, we expect to see record player price drops in the weeks leading up to the big sales event and for a while after, too.

What deals should I expect?

Black Friday record player deals are going to be everywhere around November 24 and we're expecting turntable deals galore from audio masters including Sony, Rega, Audio-Technica, House Of Marley, ION, Victrola and more. In our experience, these are the main brands who get stuck into Black Friday pricing.

Deals can drop at any time, day or night while some stock could be limited and only stick around for a matter of hours. Other turntable deals will extend through the weekend and into Cyber Monday. If you have a product in mind and you see it on sale, we suggest picking it up straight away to avoid disappointment.

This year, look out for price drops on turntables such as Rega's excellent Planar 3, plus the Technics SL-1500C and the Cambridge Audio Alva T. If we see something special, we’ll let you know right here.

How to spot the best deals

Here at Louder, we'll keep you up to date on the best Black Friday record player deals we spot, bringing you our favourite products at the best prices, right here on this page. 

But what should you be looking for as you shop? We recommend first finding the original RRP of the turntable you're looking for. Then you'll be able to see at a glance just how much of a deal you're actually getting.

Some record player deals will be cut by just a handful of dollars or pounds, while others could be reduced in price dramatically. Others might also come with added bells and whistles, such as bundled vinyl, or free speakers.

We expect to see the likes of Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Very, Best Buy, Walmart, World Wide Stereo and AV Online to all chop chunks of change from their turntable stock. Keep Louder bookmarked so you don't miss any of the action.

Are Black Friday deals worth it?

Our experience of covering deals turntable year-round tells us that Black Friday is unequivocally the best time of year to find genuinely good offers on the top record player brands and the widest range of offers. It's a very lucrative time for the big online retailers, so they save their best deals for this time of year.

We did see some great deals around Amazon's Prime Day Big Deal Days event earlier this year, but we're hoping this is a great sign of things to come in the big Black Friday bonanza.

We only cover deals that we know are decent and represent the best prices of the year, so if you're overwhelmed by options and don't know which offers are genuinely worth your hard-earned cash, if we've not covered it on Louder then it's probably not worth your time. 

Do bricks and mortar shops have Black Friday sales?

Absolutely! Online shopping is obviously way more convenient and a faster route to getting the offers you want, but you will certainly find great deals in physical stores too. Basically, everyone gets involved in Black Friday price cutting!

Buying in a physical store is particularly beneficial if you want to test a piece of gear before you buy - recommended when you're planning on spending a serious amount of cash. But you should be mindful that they may be limited to the stock they have in their store room - or may direct you online to purchase anyway. 

Whether you buy online or in-store, it's always worth checking the refund policy of the place you're shopping. This will give you extra peace of mind if you're making a big purchase, or something more impulsive that you may wish to return down the line.

Black Friday record player deals: How to prepare

With so many Black Friday record players deals coming down the pipe, to grab the top choice bargains, it really does pay to do a little prep work before you wade into the sales. Here's a handful of tips, base don our years of experience covering this event, to help you get the jump on the deals

1. Make notes: First off, make a note of the products you’re interested in and mark down their current price. This will let you see at a glance how much of a saving there is on a product you really want. Amazon’s list function really come into its own here as you can create individual folders to keep everything neat and tidy.

2. Decide your budget: It’s easy to be tempted to dive right into a great deal when you see it, but keep your budget in mind before flinging your chosen product into the basket. You don’t want to overpay for something you might find cheaper elsewhere. Here at Louder, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for awesome deals across the internet and posting them right here for you to see.

3. Sell older products in advance: If you’ve got your heart set on on upgrading a bit of kit such as a turntable or Bluetooth speaker, selling your older model before the Black Friday music deals kick in could net you a decent chunk of change to spend on that shiny new bit of tech when the sales get under way.

4. Sign up to retailers’ mailing lists: One of the quickest ways to get a heads up about what’s going on sale or when the savings are due to begin is to sign up to an online retailer's mailing list. Getting this info early could steer you in the right direction of a top deal on a product you really want quickly. Sure, constant emails after the event can get a bit annoying, but you can always unsubscribe at any time you want. And of course, don't forget to keep this page bookmarked and check back regularly, too.

How we choose which deals to cover

We’ve reviewed many music products here at Louder over the years, with our team of experts and enthusiasts covering everything from headphones, speakers and turntables, to earplugs, books and smartphones. 

That’s given us a broad overview of what’s going on across the musical landscape and allows us to compare and contrast products and pick out items that excite us and things we think you’ll like too. That means there's no room for tinny-sounding headphones or speakers that don’t cut the mustard.

Why trust us

Here at Louder, we’ve been covering big sales events including Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day for a number of years and have also created a wide range of buyer’s guides and product reviews. In those we dig deep into the essential specs of a product and also give hands-on information about how it performs, how easy it is to use and if it’s good value for money. 

We test headphones, speakers and record players in a real-world environment - our living rooms or out on the streets as we feel this gives a more genuine insight into how you’ll be using the product. If we’re recommending a pair of earplugs for musicians, we test those either in the studio or up on stage to give accurate information.

We also give pros and cons for products in our buyer’s guides, while all our reviews always feature a couple of alternative options to give you as much choice as possible when it comes to choosing something that's going to be right for you.

That means, when recommending which deals you should shop, we have the knowledge to point you towards products that we rate, at the best prices.
