VinylBox are the new kids on the blog - we've heard of vinyl record subscription services before, but none just like this. With each box, you'll receive 2 or 3 surprise albums, 2 exclusive art cards, and a VinylBox sleeve note.

To celebrate Black Friday, they are currently running 30% off all subscriptions. Run, don't walk!

Prices from £32.00 per month.

6. 'Sound Advice' book by Rhian Jones and Lucy Heyman

I can personally confirm that this is one of *the* most useful books on the music industry ever written. The authors take a holistic approach to wellness for music creatives, whilst also giving helpful tips on professional development.

Hot tip: Check out the authors' Twitter accounts for discount codes!

Prices from £10.00.

7. Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator Synthesizer

These bad boys are proving very popular this festive season, so you'll want to get your hands on these pocket-sized sound modules sooner rather than later. Great fun for anyone who loves fiddling with knobs 👀

Prices from £49.

8. Yamaha Studio Recording Bundle

If you're Billy Big Bucks (or just feeling extremely generous), this studio recording bundle with Yamaha HS5 active studio monitors could be your guy. Including the montitor pair, headphones, a condenser microphone, a mic stand, pop shield, XLR cables, and an interface, I'd argue this studio kit is well worth the price tag.

Prices from £460.
