45 Gifts for Musicians

From Digital Wind Instruments to Native American Art-Inspired Synths

— December 7, 2019 — Art & Design
When it comes to choosing gifts for musicians, there are many avenues one can take. If you have the means for spending a little bit more, there are many functional, aesthetically pleasing and creativity-sparking instruments on the market. For the Prince fan, for instance, the singer's estate made the iconic Cloud guitar available to consumers on prince.com. It retailed for $1,750 USD and although it is surely pricey, a gift like this will, no doubt, make the receiver ecstatic.

For shoppers who want to give their friends or family a unique musical experience, the Roland Aerophone GO will be able to deliver. This is a digital wind instrument that is not only interesting and experimentation-forward but is also incredibly convenient as its format allows it to be enjoyed on-the-go.
