For this to work on Roland products, type the code in and then when an info box pops up, use the chat function to talk to a rep and they will apply in manually. I was able to get a Roland TD-17KV V-Drums Electronic Drum Set for $1,020 + tax. Also qualifies for their rewards program which will net you another $80 in credit 45 days after purchase.
This may not be a killer deal, but I've been on the hunt for a Roland V-Drum set for a while and this is by far the lowest I've found brand new.
Musician's Friend is selling the Fender Player Jaguar Electric Guitar for $499.99 (31% off, normally price is $725). Limited Edition. Free shipping.
These are made in Mexico (MIM) and are excellent instruments, many players state that quality, sound and playability of these Mexican Jags are comparable to American made Jaguars (which retail for $1,000 and up).
I was looking for inexpensive classical guitar and found this higher end Lucero classical guitar for $160, 50% off at Musician's Friend, shipping is free.
This is classical version, the one with nylon strings, normally played without a pick. You get a lot of features typically not found in classical guitars:
- Truss rod for neck adjustment,
- Cutaway design for access to high frets,
- Electronic Fishman build-in tuner,
- Premium Fishman Clasica III preamp - guitar can be plugged into amp or computer.
It also comes with solid spruce top.
Lots of premium features, you typically pay a lot more than $160 for this selection of features.

These are great prices for Mogami instrument, speaker, and other cables at Musiciansfriend.com. Great quality stuff, outstanding warranty, and their finished cables often use Amphenol plugs which are legit.

Musician's Friend has a Gibson Firebird Studio as the Stupid Deal of the Day. It seems to be selling quickly as it started with a Pelham Blue model and then went to red before this white one appeared. (Update: price on white has gone up, Fireburst finish now at $699.) Made in USA model. Not sure what year (2016 or 2017?).
This has full size 496T/496R ceramic humbuckers, not mini humbuckers like a standard Firebird.
I have no personal experience with these, but after reading reviews, I think $40 is good for the sound quality. Largest complaint was the durability of the plastic. For $40, I bought these personally. It was worth the chance of getting some comfortable headphones with deep bass and crisp highs.
Fender Player Limited Edition Stratocaster and Telecaster Electric Guitars $550 + free shipping
Store: Musician's Friend. Same as recent Adorama front page deal.
Made in Mexico, not Asia. This is high quality guitar and from newest Player series (released in 2018). Some say these new Mexican Player Strats rival American made guitars, their quality is unbelievable!
Fender Player Strat MIM $549.99, free shipping, in variety of colors and pick-up configurations - red, black, green (surf pearl):
Embrace your inner tweaker with this compact, and versatile 15-watt all-tube combo.
The 15W Egnater Tweaker 112 ultra-compact all-tube combo amp offers versatility with unique and sophisticated tone. The Egnater 112 combo serves up seemingly endless tonal variations via its onboard Tweaker selector switches. Powered by a pair of 6V6 power tubes, the Egnater Tweaker is a perfect tube amp for gigging.
The Egnater combo's gain, EQ, and master sections each have a Tweaker switch providing a wide range of tones from the ultra smooth and satisfying to fully over-saturated lead tones.
Hidden inside the Egnater Tweaker tube amp is a vast array of tones not usually found in such a compact combo amp. Each of the 5 front-mounted toggle switches changes the amp's character. The Tight and Bright switches shape the low and high end from soft and smooth to punchy and aggressive. The Gain switch goes from sparkly clean to an all-out high-gain assault. The Egnater guitar amp's EQ switch selects tones from pristine American to classic Brit and even the illusive VX AC sound. Use the Classic/Modern voicing switch to choose either soft and smooth or hard and edgy power-tube tone. Even the most radical tone tweaker is sure to find the sounds they seek in the Egnater Tweaker 112 combo amp.
