A Guide to the Gear of 80s Metal

'80s Metal Buying Guide

The '80s may be well behind us, but that decade is alive and well in the guitar world. We've curated a list of some gear that will fit your rig and send you straight to "Paradise City." Plug your preferred shred machine into a screaming half stack and you'll have "Nothin' But A Good Time."

This buying guide includes some tried-and-true classics and some newer takes on the gear that gave hair metal its signature sound. Stand out on stage with a laser green axe outfitted with a Floyd Rose, plug into a half stack the size of a small car, and rock your audience like a hurricane!

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.
