1. SquierÂ® SE-100 Electric Pack: Includes SquierÂ® StratocasterÂ® guitar, gig bag, SquierÂ® SP-10 practice amp with switchable distortion, electronic tuner, strap, cable, guitar picks, and a FenderÂ® instruction book. The hot holiday gift.
2. Yamaha DGX203 Keyboard: The introduction of some remarkable novelties in YamahaÂs new DGX series will increase the fun in playing, creating and enjoying music of players throughout the world. In this regard as an example, the Floppy Disk Drives in the former models DGX-300 and DGX-500 have been replaced by Smart Media slots and all new models feature USB-interfaces. Despite the fact that this marvelous new DGX-series feature more high-tech novelties, the DGX-keyboards are still the ideal +61 key keyboards with a budget price tag!
3. Johnson JG-610 Player Series: Our most popular guitar. This dreadnaught is well built and affordably priced to give you the best value for a beginner guitar. Special attention is given to the neck angle to ensure that every guitar is intonated & playable. This guitar comes with Martin strings so it sounds great right out of the box. It is available in full, 3/4 and 1/2 sizes, and comes with a two year warranty. The best choice for the beginning guitar strummer on your list.
4. Numark DXMO6 Digital 2 Channel Mixer: The DXM06 features 12 on-board digital effects (Flanger, Echo, Tape Echo, 2x Copy, Phaser, and Filter for CH1/Ch2, plus Vocoder, Echo, Tape Echo, Reverb, Limiter+Distortion, and Telephone for Mic/Aux), all routable to Ch1,Ch2,Mic/Aux or Master. The effects control interface uses a Beat Sync Tap Button, wet/dry fader, and rotary parameter control, plus kill buttons for instant, intuitive control.
5. Behringer B1 Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Mic: Designed for home-studio owners and musicians. The 1" capsule captures sound with incredible realism and sensitivity. Its wide frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz is enhanced by a pronounced presence boost, making EQing unnecessary in many cases. The cardioid polar pattern, switchable high-pass filter, -10dB pad, 148dB SPL, and low inherent noise make it perfect for close miking. Requires 48V phantom power. Includes carrying case, shockmount, and windscreen.
6. Numark DJ IN A BOX V.5: Have you always wanted to spin the wheels of steel?

7. Taylor Liberty Tree Guitar: The Liberty Tree Guitar is Taylor's homage to the resilient spirit of freedom that inspired our nation's birth. This special series is made from the last survivor of 13 Liberty Trees, around which the early-American Colonists gathered to spread their ideals of independence and strategize the American Revolution. The Liberty Tree endured as a nurturing symbol of our nation's growth until sustaining fatal injuries from Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Never before has Bob Taylor undertaken a guitar endeavor with such reverence. Pledge your allegiance to beautiful sound.
