Do you have a musician in your life and want to get them something special for Valentine’s Day? If you don’t play an instrument yourself, it can be hard to know what to pick. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the best Valentine’s gifts for musicians.

1. Audio Technica ATH-M50X headphones

These professional headphones are a great pick for musicians who want to record music at home. The M50X is the headphone of choice in many top studios around the world. The closed-back design ensures that sound is isolated and that your backing track doesn’t bleed into the microphone. They also offer great comfort and a long, coiled cable which is perfect for studio environments.

2. Minuendo Lossless Earplugs

Protecting your hearing is important, so you’ll be doing your loved ones a huge favour by getting them these earplugs. One of the main features of Minuendo is variable noise isolation, which allows you to customize the level of noise these earplugs block out. You also get a large selection of ear tips to ensure a perfect fit. Minuendo isn’t just for musicians either – anyone who needs hearing protection can use them.

3. Playtron

Playtron and TouchMe MIDI controllers

The Playtron MIDI Controller offers a unique way to create your own custom MIDI controller. It has the ability to connect up to 16 objects with alligator clips. This allows you to use it with several mobile apps, online synthesizers, or your favourite DAW.

From fruits to plants, and even toys, the possibilities are endless. Connect the clips from objects capable of conducting electricity to Playtron, and assign a different MIDI note (C1 to D#2 by default) to each object. Then, you can start playing and creating your own unique sounds!

Why we love it

  • A unique way to make music and you could add a very interesting/interactive aspect to your performance
  • Very affordable price for the several versatile features
  • Combine with other MIDI controllers or instruments to create complex arrangements and performances. 
  • Very portable (can be connected to your computer, tablet, or smartphone via Bluetooth for a wireless setup)

Cons

  • Not best for very precise control

4. TouchMe

TouchMe allows you to connect to objects in the same way as Playtron. However, this is a sensory device as it is set to react differently to the touch. Meaning, when the area of touch and intensity changes, the sound changes too, causing the pitch to go higher or lower!

Why we love it

  • Overall great sequencer
  • Perfect amount of keys
  • Combine with other MIDI controllers or instruments to create complex arrangements and performances. 
  • Explore the theremin-like sound generation potential of the TouchMe device to create dynamic and expressive music. 
  • Interact with other people in a musical creative environment.
  • Very portable (can be connected to your computer, tablet, or smartphone via Bluetooth for a wireless setup)

Cons

  • Not best for very precise control

5. Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface

An audio interface is a must-have for most musicians who want to make high-quality recordings at home. The 2i2 is the most popular one on the market, mainly due to its excellent sound and build quality, as well as its affordable price. You can’t go wrong with this one.

6. Spark Guitar Amp

If your significant other is a guitarist, they will definitely appreciate this innovative product from the folks at Positive Grid. The Spark Guitar Amp is a revolutionary new practice amp that uses digital modelling to simulate classic guitar tones. It can be controlled with a companion app that gives you access to over 10,000 presets, and the Smart Jam feature can even analyze your playing and generate rhythm accompaniments. 

7. Vic Firth Drum Mute Prepack

If your partner is a drummer, you know how loud a drum set can be. The Vic Firth Drum Mute pads are made from pure rubber, and will significantly reduce the sound of your drums and cymbals. This makes late-night practice sessions much more bearable. Chances are, the neighbours will thank you too. 

8. Akai Professional MPK Mini MK3 MIDI controller

This mini controller from AKAI combines a portable form factor with studio-quality features. The keys are velocity-sensitive and you also get 8 beat pads for triggering drum samples. 

9. Mackie CR-3X Studio Monitors

These great budget speakers from Mackie are a perfect choice for musicians on a budget. Besides having a flat frequency response for mixing, they also come with Bluetooth connectivity. You can also upgrade them down the line by adding Mackie’s Bluetooth subwoofer. 

10. EditorsKeys Pro Tools keyboard

This keyboard is a huge timesaver for anyone who does a lot of audio editing and production on their computer. Every shortcut you could ever need is printed on the board, and that ensures you’ll never forget anything. The keyboard is also backlit, which makes it much easier to use in darker environments. For those who don’t use Pro Tools, this keyboard comes in a variety of other models to suit different DAWs. 

11. Soundbrenner Core 2

The Soundbrenner Core 2 is the world’s first watch for musicians. Featuring a smart vibrating metronome, contact tuner and decibel meter, it comes with all your favourite music tools in one convenient package. 

12. Personalized drumsticks

Spice up your partner’s drumming with these custom-engraved drumsticks. You can choose from an assortment of different colours and also engrave a heartfelt message at the end of the stick. As drummers do go through sticks fairly quickly, it might be a good idea to get an extra pair or two as well.

13. Custom vinyl record

Custom-made 10-inch Vinyl Record which is available in black, white and transparent. Simply send Vinylify 20 minutes of your partner’s music or your music. You can even custom-design your own cover & labels. We can’t think of the most thoughtful gift for loved ones.

14. Major scale musical wine glasses

If you are looking for a creative Valentine’s day gift for your partner, look no further. Play your favourite one-note romantic tune to your loved one using these Musical Wine Glasses.

15. Piano songbooks to duet on

There’s nothing better than the experience of singing together in front of the piano. For all pianists out there, this gift is for you. Give your valentines a special performance on Valentine’s day.

16. Personalized sound wave print
