Christmas Gift Ideas From Sound & Vision, Elgin

Christmas can be tricky to know what to buy sometimes, especially for friends and family who play a musical instrument. So to help you out a bit, we talked to the owner of Sound & Vision, Vic Flett, to talk about some gift ideas which are in-stock right now.

Gifts Under £10

  • Jewellery from £10.00

  • Clip on tuners from £9.99 - recommended for music students

Clip-On Tuners are really popular right now, and there's a good reason for it. You just clip them onto the headstock of your Guitar/Bass/Ukulele and it feels the note when you play a string. They are accurate and really useful for tuning in a busy environment (band practice, gig). If you don't have a tuner already, we would highly recommend getting one. There's really nothing worse than an instrument that is out of tune.

We love these Snark Clip-On Tuners. Our students might recognise these from our lessons. They're accurate and really responsive.

  • Mugs from £6.40

  • String sets from £7.99 (acoustic), £5.99 (electric), £7.99 (classical) - recommended for Guitar/Bass/Ukulele students

Treat your stringed instrument to a set of new strings this Christmas! Just make sure you find out what type of strings you need to buy first. Ask your tutor, or ask the staff in Sound & Vision for some advice.

  • Guitar straps from £5.99

  • Glasses from £5.99

  • Plectrums from 50p recommended for guitar/bass students

  • Selection of stationery items from 50p

Gifts Under £40

  • Hoodies from £39.99

  • Metronomes from £18.99 recommended for music students

A Metronome is a musicians best friend! Trust us, don't be afraid of playing along with a metronome. There are so many benefits to practicing with a metronome - you can improve your timing and learn to play faster (or slower!) Just ask the staff to show you the different options.

  • Music stands from £16.99 recommended for music students

  • T shirts £16.99

  • LED music stand lights from £12.99
