What in the world do you get a kid who loves to play the guitar for the holidays? Well, the Rock Dojo has got you covered with 5 gift ideas you’re little guitar star is sure to LOVE!
1. Electric Guitar Starter Kit
Well, you got your kid an acoustic guitar. It’s not for fault. How were you supposed to know playing an acoustic guitar is about as much fun as holding a domesticated gecko while playing the electric guitar is like riding on the back of a raging T-Rex?
It’s not too late to make it right by purchasing the proverbial T-Rex of guitar madness with a Fender Mini Start with amp, tuner, cable, picks, and guitar strap.
2. The Roland Micro Cube GX
The Roland MICRO CUBE GX is the premium practice amp for kids. Featuring 8 guitar amp models, the JC Clean offers pristine clean guitar tones while the Brit Combo and Classic Stack guitar amp models snarl and roar!
3. Guitar for Kids: Rock Dojo The Complete Belt System
Featuring 11-studies for guitar, 5 Must Know Musical Concepts, and step-by-step composition guides, Guitar for Kids: Rock Dojo The Complete Belt System is certain to help your kid rock this holiday season!
4. Clip-On Guitar Tuner
Before your kid can rock the guitar, he/she will need to tune it first! The KLIQ UberTuner is perfect for kids because it’s easy to use, durable, and the super bright display makes tuning the guitar a cinch!
5. String Cleaner and Guitar Strings
At first glance, new guitar strings and a system for cleaning guitar strings aren’t the most exciting gift ideas, but a set of new strings elevates the experience of playing the guitar to a whole new stratosphere of fun! At the same time, an old set of clammy strings makes practice time a drag!
