10 best gifts for musicians in 2022

Oct 13, 2022 | 3 min read

It’s been a crazy year for our musicians – if you are looking for gift ideas to cheer them up we’ve got you. Here are our 10 best gifts for musicians to keep up their creative energies.

1. Soundbrenner Core

The Soundbrenner Core is the first smartwatch for musicians. With a sleek interface, the Core features a silent, vibrating metronome (so nobody has to listen to that infuriating click again), a magnetic contact tuner, a decibel meter, and alarm that warns you when things get too loud, as well as smart notifications for calls and texts. It’s the ultimate tool for musicians – all on your wrist.

2. STOMP Bluetooth Page Turner Pedal

As tablets become more popular for reading sheet music, consider amping up that convenience with a STOMP Bluetooth page turner. With this foot-switch, keep your hands free to play your instrument, instead of stressing out about the 0.5 seconds you have to turn the page. You can also program this pedal to control your DAW or trigger backing tracks. A perfect gift for any gigging musician.

3. Minuendo Lossless Earplugs

These are our favorite for a reason. The emphasis on precise material use and minimal design keeps the product light and comfortable for all-day wear. Minuendo uses a membrane technology that mimics nature which behaves like a second eardrum. To add, users are protected while still being able to hear natural high-fidelity sound. Its rotating volume slider manual adjustment is between 7 – 25dB.

4. Evans SoundOff Drum Mutes

Living with or next to a drummer is…loud. But thankfully, you can get a set of mutes for acoustic drum kits from Evans. You still get the feel of an acoustic drum kit, so there’s no need to worry about comprising on your practice – it’s just at a volume that’s more pleasant for neighbors.

5. Auralex Studiofoam® Wedgies™

With home recordings on the rise this year, acoustic treatment for our rooms has become a bigger priority. These sound-dampening foam panels from Auralex are a great gift for musicians that might be a little too noisy and come in a pack of 24, which make it easy to spot-treat your home studios. These Wedgies are 2″ inch thick and have a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.75, which means they absorb 75% of sound. Auralex also has 3″ and 4″ panels with higher NRCs for greater reduction of echo and reverb.

6. Akai Professional MPK Mini MKII

For any creative spirit out there, this compact keyboard and pad controller from Akai comes bundled with professional production software and virtual instruments for immediate music creation. Featuring eight assignable Q-Link knobs for mixing and plug-ins, a four-way thumbstick, eight velocity-sensitive MPC-style pads, a built-in arpeggiator and more, this ultra-compact instrument certainly packs a punch.

Although, we would highly recommend you to take care of the USB port and be aware of where you place and store it.

7. Smartphone Studio Microphone

Know someone who’s starting to record their own music in 2022? Compatible with any device, the Smartphone Studio Mic is everything you need to record music from your home. Get studio quality recording (up to 24-bit/9kHz), compatibility with iOS, Android, macOS and Windows, and built-in gain control and direct monitoring. It’s also completely powered by your device, so no charging required at all!

8. TASCAM DR-05X Stereo Handheld Recorder

For more acoustically-minded instrumentalists who can’t be bothered with a grand recording setup (hint: classical musicians), the TASCAM DR-05X is a choice gift. With built-in dual omnidirectional condenser microphones for stereo recording, you can expect great audio quality with this portable recorder. This also serves as an audio interface with your Mac or PC so you can record directly into your computer for tasks on your DAW or podcasting.

9. A premium digital audio workstation

Whether you want to fix up your recordings or produce your own music, a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) is an essential tool for the modern musician. A DAW is an electronic device or application software used for recording, editing and producing audio files, and while there are free ones out there, a premium DAW will be able to offer a much greater range of capabilities. There are many DAWs out there to suit different purposes, so check out our guide to find a best fit. It’s one of the best gifts for musicians looking to level up their creativity.

10. Shure SE215

For a pair of in-ear monitoring earphones that won’t break the bank, look to the Shure SE215-CL. Shure has a reputation for delivering high-quality sound, and this entry-level IEM is no exception. With their award-winning sound and long-lasting comfort, these earphones block up to 37 dB of outside noise and are designed to withstand the rigors of onstage performance. These earphones come in wireless and wired versions with detachable cables and multiple color options.
