Gift Ideas for the Recording Musician

Inexpensive items that anyone who records music can use By Dan Richards
Tis the season. Perhaps you're a recording musician who's been asked by family members and friends to give them a list of gifts. Maybe you're a friend or family member looking for a gift for a recording musician. Whether it's for the holidays or any time of year, here's a list of great inexpensive items that anyone who records music can use in their studio.

Feather Duster, because every studio gets dusty.

Fine- bristled paint brush for dusting gear in crevices.

Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner, so everything is in tune.

Soldering Iron, because every studio is full of cords that need maintenance and repair.

High Tech Rosin-Core Solder. The best kind for electronics soldering.

Cable Tester for various studio cables.

John Pearce acoustic guitar strings. Try Medium Phosphor Bronze Wound.

Mini Mag Flashlight, because every studio needs a flashlight.

Magazine subscriptions are always a hit. Some recommendations would be EQ Magazine, Mix Magazine and Sound on Sound.

Acoustic Guitar Humidifier, because the right humidity conditions can greatly lengthen the life of a guitar.

Fender Instrument Care Kit. Take care of the instrument, and the instrument takes care of you.

On Stage guitar stand. Great stands for studio and stage.

Music stand can be used for sheet music, lyrics, notes and as a headphone holder.

Music necktie. Even if it's for a joke, these can be fun.

Still looking for more ideas? There's an excellent Gift Suggestor at activeMusic.com that allows searches by main instrument and price categories.
