We've made it easy to start something new with our convenient bundles of equipment. Removing the uncertainty of knowing what you need to buy, these great-value packages provide the essential equipment to get started.

Discover our instrument packages, studio gear, podcasting bundles, DJ controller bundles, and more.

Guitar Packs

Starting from just £49.99, our guitar packs provide the essential gear you need to start playing one of the most popular instruments of all time - the guitar. If you’re a younger player, you’ll find smaller instruments that are perfect for smaller hands.

Electric Guitar Packs

Acoustic guitar packages are available with either nylon- or steel-strung guitars. Many packs come with useful accessories including cases, tuners, picks, stands, and more. Electro-acoustic guitar packs include an amp as well, so you’ll be ready to get gigging once you’ve learnt the basics.

Bass Guitar Packs

Drum Packs

Drum kit packs offer great value for money. Drum kits come with many different parts, so our packages remove the uncertainty of knowing what to buy.

If you’re worried about noise at home, or you have limited space, see our range of tabletop and electronic drum kits for a low-volume solution that can be enjoyed with a pair of headphones.

Tabletop Drum Kits

Limited space at home? Designed to sit on a table or desk, these electronic drum pads take up barely any room yet offer the real experience of playing drums. Put on a set of headphones to practise quietly and explore a wide range of drum sounds at home.

Look out for the tabletop drum kits which include pedals if you want the ultimate compact drumkit experience.

Electronic Drum Kit Packs

SHOP NOW | Electronic Drum Kit Packs

Electronic drum kits take up less room than an acoustic kit, and they are quieter to use at home. Plug in an amplifier or headphones and you can explore a wide range of drum sounds, both natural and electronic.

Electronic drum kit packs include everything you need to play at home, including sticks, stool, and headphones or an amplifier. Some kits have rubber pads for a great drum feel, while others incorporate mesh heads to respond even more like an acoustic kit.

Piano and Keyboard Packs

The piano and keyboard are wonderful instruments to learn. Not only are they incredibly versatile and found in almost any genre, they open the door to learning about music theory, composition, and music production.

Keyboard Packages

SHOP NOW | Keyboard Packs

Keyboards are an affordable instrument to start at home. They may look like pianos, but they include a huge range of extra instrument sounds.

Many keyboards offer built-in lessons or musical accompaniments to play along to. Our packages come with a keyboard, headphones, and many bundles also have a stand and stool to sit comfortably.

Digital Piano Packages

SHOP NOW | Digital Piano Packs

Digital pianos generally include fewer sounds than a digital keyboard, but they replicate the feel of an acoustic piano more closely. If you’re serious about learning classical, popular, and jazz piano, this is a great starting point.

Studio and Production Packs

Studio and Production is a wide umbrella of activities: recording instruments or your voice, song writing, producing music with a computer, podcasting, DJing, streaming online… the list goes on!

Fortunately, our convenient bundles make it easy to get started.

Podcasting Bundles

SHOP NOW | Podcast Bundles

Podcasting bundles include the essential gear you need to start your own show. Simply plug the equipment into a computer, and you’ll be good to go! Some packages even work standalone, meaning you’ll be ready to record, straight out the box.
