2. Guitar picks

Firstly, every guitarist knows the trouble of misplacing a pick. Ensure you have an array of picks, each with different thicknesses, within your kit of guitar accessories. They’re your unsung heroes, helping you achieve the perfect tone and feel.

3. Stomp Bluetooth foot pedal

Meet Stomp, the top-rated Bluetooth foot pedal essential for all musicians including guitarists. With its rugged, durable metal enclosure, this hands-free page-turner and app controller improves both practice and gigs. Navigate through chord charts or control your metronome with its 6 customizable buttons.

Offering multiple power options, it runs for 150+ hours on a single 9V battery and even includes a USB port for device charging. With a 50+ foot range and universal compatibility, Stomp ensures seamless, reliable operation every time.

4. Minuendo lossless earplugs

Minuendo lossless earplugs are an indispensable addition to any guitarist’s accessories. They are the world’s first-ever variable passive Hi-Fi earplugs, designed specifically for musicians. The patented membrane technology and micrometre precision craftsmanship ensure there is no loss in frequency, eliminating the muffled sound commonly associated with foam earplugs.

With stepless adjustments, you can easily adjust the earplugs from -7dB to -25dB, allowing you to find your personal sweet spot. The magnetic locking system and an extensive range of ear tip options ensure that you will never lose your earplugs, and you will always have a comfortable, leak-free fit. Ideal for use in concerts, practice sessions, and everyday life.

Broken strings can bring your performance to a halt. Carry extra sets of strings in your gig bag containing guitar accessories, so you can quickly replace them and keep the music flowing.

9. Allen wrenches

Guitars sometimes need adjustments. Allen wrenches are very important for adjusting the setup of your guitar, making sure it plays at its best.

10. Jack-to-jack cable 

An electric guitar that you can’t plug into an amplifier is basically a heavy wooden fashion accessory. And cables are surprisingly easy things to forget when taking your kit out on the road.

Even if you’re playing a gig or going to a studio where someone else will give you the amplifier, don’t assume they’ll also provide you with a way of plugging in! So, always keep a good and handy jack-to-jack cable to avoid any hiccups during your performance.
