Christmas Buying Guide

Christmas might be the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be a huge pain - especially when your loved ones are musicians, and you don't know anything about musical instruments! Worse still if someone in your family wants to start playing an instrument you know nothing about!

Don't worry, we've all been there, and Logans are here to help! Below are our top picks for gifts for guitarists, pianists & string players, including the best instrument packs to get an absolute beginner started. 

I Want to Buy an Instrument for a Beginner - How Do I Know What To Get?

Great question, I'm glad I asked it! We always recommend you seek expert advice before taking the plunge and buying your first instrument - emphasis on the word expert. An instrument tutor is a good, reliable source of advice that should be taken seriously. Brian next door who played guitar twenty years ago and once had piano he really liked probably isn't. 

Logans is a shop full of passionate, experienced musicians who see, play and repair thousands of instruments each and every year. We know everyone is different, but we also know quality and value when we see them! Without further ado, here are our top Christmas gift picks for musicians below.
