There are many Black Friday music deals swelling our inboxes, but we consider the deluge a challenge, wading through the dodgy and the dubious to bring you the very best bargains the web has to offer.

A good place to start is with the big guitar retailers, who've all kicked off sales that offer prices that are, in some cases, scarcely believable. So if you're looking for an upgrade, or if you're a beginner looking for a first instrument, they have you covered. (And if you are a beginner, check out the price reductions on Positive Grid practice amps (opens in new tab), which are a brilliant learning aid). 

Reverb (opens in new tab), Guitar Center (opens in new tab) and Sweetwater (opens in new tab) are offering big discounts, while Musician's Friend are offering 15% price reductions on purchases over $99 to anyone using the BLACKFRIDAY code on checkout (opens in new tab).

More details on their Black Friday deals below.

Reverb: Black Friday deals, but be quick (opens in new tab)
Online retailer Reverb's Black Friday sale ends November 28 at 10am CT, with up to 70% off nearly 90,000 items. They've also got some really nice vintage hi-fi if that's your thing: If someone buy this gorgeous McIntosh tube amp (opens in new tab), (currently over £1000 off), can we come round?

Amazon: Money off lots of things (opens in new tab)
It's almost a surprise that Amazon haven't lobbied for Black Friday to be a national holiday, thus enabling the entire population to stay at home all day, filling the retail giant's coffers with cash. But, let's face it: we shop there because they've made life cheaper, and it's no different this year.
