15th Anniversary: Gigging Week

Published on 05 August 2019

We're celebrating our 15th Anniversary with Gigging Week at guitarguitar!

There's nothing quite like live music. Whether you prefer a sweaty, underground venue, your local pub, or a huge stadium gig, there's something undeniably special about seeing artists perform in front of you. We all have those gigs that capture a moment in time and continue to inspire and blow us away. However, if you're a gigging musician yourself, then you'll already know that these performances don't come easy. With countless hours of practice going into live shows, along with the hassle of transporting your gear, getting set up, sound-checking and facing everything that venues (and indeed audiences) may care to throw at you, gigging can be as stressful as it is rewarding. So, we knew that it was time to give all of you hardworking gigging musicians the credit that you're well overdue, read on to find out what you can get involved with this week...

It's gigging week at guitarguitar and we're giving you loads of chances to kit out your full band in our latest competition!

Finding a stage-worthy set up that you can rely on is half the battle, so we've got an awesome selection of gear lined up for this week's giveaway. First up in our selection of goodies are a phenomenal set of CP12 monitors from QSC. Providing an extremely high-quality PA setup which is easy to transport, we see these powerful speakers as the perfect option for bands. Let's face it, there's nothing worse than relying on a venue's sub-par speakers and the CP12s have such a crisp, punchy sound that those worries will become a thing of the past!

Next up we have an awesome Blackstar HT Club 40 MKII amp, which is the perfect companion to any gigging guitarist. Plenty loud and capable of some seriously mega tones, this is a great choice for rockers in search of a trusty amp to accompany them on their journey to superstardom. We've got you drummers covered too with a TourTech TT-16S kit that's extremely versatile and much, MUCH easier to pack into a van than your acoustic kit! That's not all, you can also get your hands on a set of Shure's acclaimed PSM200 in-ear monitors. We see these as the future of gigging with more and more bands making the switch to IEM. If you've been wondering what all of the fuss is about then this is the perfect opportunity for you to find out!

On top of a phenomenal range of gear in our competition, guitarists can also take advantage of a buy one get one free offer on Elixir strings (electric .010-.046 or .009-.042) and a whopping range of bargains in our Ex-Demo amp sale. We're even hosting one to one Q&A sessions in all of our stores where you can pick the brains of our expert staff about every aspect of live performance! So, don't put it off any further, head down to your local store and get involved.

That's not enough for you? Okay... Guess we'll throw a Gibson sale into the mix as well! We've just slashed the price on a whole selection of models and let's be honest, when it comes to looking badass on stage, you can't really beat a Les Paul or SG! Check out the selection now.

As with all of our 15th Anniversary giveaways, all you have to do to be in with the chance to win is stop by your local store this week (05/08/19 - 11/08/19) and fill out an entry ticket.
