Guitar Expert: Bert

Bert's Gear Shopping Advice:
Finding the perfect piece of gear starts by thinking about who or what you want to sound like. Everybody remembers their first concert, and everyone can picture a screaming guitar at a stadium or a low-key acoustic jam at an open-mic night. Knowing the similarities to get your tone there and doing your homework is a great step in the right direction to pick a winner.

Guitar Expert: Justin

Justin's Gear Shopping Advice:
It's important to keep in mind what styles you will be playing, and then make your assessment on what gear will help accomplish those sounds. I always go for versatility in my setups. My perfect sound for one night can be something completely different than the next, so I always make sure I can be prepared for any setting. I love the sound of a semi-hollow electric guitar through a good clean (but also easily overdriven) tube amp. To me, the feel of a guitar with nice resonance is unbeatable.

Guitar Expert: Martin

Martin's Gear Shopping Advice:
If I'm looking into getting a new piece of gear, first I list out my priorities of what I'm looking for in that gear. I want an amp that can do this, or a bass that has that tone, etc. Then, I am big on comparing gear side by side in tabs. I weigh my options for what's best for me, and what my budget is. I use videos and user reviews on forums a lot as testimony to how the gear I'm interested in sounds, and will hold up over time.

Guitar Expert: Dan

Dan's Gear Shopping Advice:
When it comes to picking gear, I look at the artists that I look up to, and see what they use to achieve their sound. From there, I try to add my own take on it with extra sounds and gear that define me. Depending on the style of music you are going to play, you'll want to adjust your tone and do your homework as to what you would need to best suit you.

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.
