Gear For the Traveling Musician

Want to Be a Better Musician?

Every musician knows the key to mastering an instrument is countless hours of practice. But with all of our daily obligations pulling us away from our gear, it can be hard to dedicate the time it takes to really craft a solid sound. Stop letting life get in the way of you and your music, and turn any place into your practice space. Grab the gear you can take with you and pull it out whenever you have a spare minute. From travel guitars and basses to battery-powered amps, compact DJ controllers, and field recorders, this guide has everything you need to travel anywhere, without missing a beat.
Guitar and Bass
From scales to solos, perfecting your sound starts with getting your fingers on the frets as often as possible. Since your full-sized axe is too big to always be by your side, we put together a list of some of our favorite compact options. These guitars and basses offer a great sound at a fraction of the size, making it easy for you to throw one on your back and hit the road.

Battery-Powered Amps
What's an electric guitar without an amp? Get a better sense of how that new melody or lick will sound -- without lugging around cumbersome gear or searching for an outlet -- by plugging into one of these battery-powered amps. Dialing in that fresh tone you've been looking for has never been more convenient.
DJ Gear
Build beats, create samples, and try out new mixes on the fly with this portable DJ gear. Once you've got your tracks down, toss all this gear in your backpack and you're ready to go. For an effects unit that is equally useful for trying new techniques as it is for live use, the Korg Mini KAOSS Pad 2S offers unmatched versatility -- all while being able to fit into your pocket. Simply connect the Mini KP 2S to your phone via an 1/8-inch cable to work with your favorite tracks, or use the built-in microphone to create new samples in seconds.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
