Spiffy Kits

Spiffy Kits

"Have you cleaned your instrument lately? What better time than during the holidays! Regular routine cleaning prolongs an instrument's lifespan by preventing dirt buildup, mold, or other damages that could affect its performance and appearance. We have tailor made kits for your instrument that not only helps save time but also ensures that your instrument stays in top-notch condition for years to come!"

Key Leaves Spit Sponge

Spit Sponge™ Woodwind Pad Dryer

"If you’ve ever had sticky keys on your woodwind instrument, chances are you have your own spit to blame. I know. Gross. Some folks use talc covered papers to remove the spit from their pads after playing, but I love these spit sponges. They do the same job, work for most woodwind instruments, and they’re reusable so you don’t have to throw away a bunch of little papers. You can just wash these, and keep your pads in the non-stick zone."

On-Stage Table/Stand Mic Clamp

Pearl Roadshow Drum Sets

"These sets deliver a big sound in a compact package. Everything you need to get playing and super durable. These are great for high schoolers and gigging musicians who want a kit that's built to last. For an additional $50 we will set up the drum set so Santa doesn’t need to worry about it."

Boss DS-1 Distortion Pedal

Boss DS-1 Distortion Pedal

"Since the dawn of time (1982), I’ve been in a love affair with this orange box. Once I discovered that this pedal made my meager skills actually sound good, it soon became a constant companion, riding along to every early live show I played. This Boss DS-1 made my clean little amp RAGE like a fire. It was only later, I discovered how awesome it sounds with the gain down, and the volume up. This is the perfect first pedal, and the perfect next pedal. It fits perfectly under a tree, too!"

- Syd
