Our All-Star lists of the top-rated guitars, amps, studio monitors, headphones, mic preamps and more

All-Star Gear: Our Customers' Favorites

Our Top Picks for Every Musician

If there's one thing that's universal to all musicians, it's the love of gear. When zZounds customers love their gear, they spread the word to fellow musicians, producers, and engineers with great ratings and reviews. In our All-Star lists, you'll find our customers' top-rated products, with actual quotes from happy owners. Look below to see what our customers love about their favorite guitars, mics, drum sets and more!

All-Star Electric Guitars

Whether they're being made to shred or sweetly sing the blues, electric guitars often steal the show. Each of the guitars on this All-Star list, by brands like Fender, Epiphone, ESP, Schecter and more, are certified performers.

All-Star Quote:
"Really nice sustain that illustrates how wrong-headed we used to be about needing a heavy guitar to get good sustain. Completely wrong."
-Chris in Penn Valley, PA on his Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline

All-Star Studio Monitors

Looking for accurate playback of your projects? Trust your mix to the studio monitors on our All-Star list. These speakers are touted by owners for their reliable, transparent sound!

All-Star Quote:
"The clarity is UNMATCHED! Also the ribbon tweeter is GREAT for long mix sessions. I'll add the Adam Sub8 and the very SLIGHT loss of bass response should be more than compensated. CLEANEST monitors I've heard for under $3,000 yet!"
- Robert in Mandan, ND on his Adam A7X monitors

All-Star Headphones

Whether you need a pair for studio mixing or just listening to your favorite music every day, our All-Star Headphones list is packed with solid recommendations.

All-Star Quote:
"These headphones have everything a critical listener needs who doesn't want to be fooled by his monitors or room."

All-Star Mic Preamps

Whether it's clean and transparent, or warm and full of character, the right microphone preamplifier can make a huge difference in your recordings. Check out our All-Star list to see which is right for you.

All-Star Quote:
"This is without a doubt an amazing piece of equipment. I've used it on everything from kick drum to snare, bass guitar to guitar, and most of all vocals. Amazing warmth and tone and such a great out-board piece to have to keep your tracks clean."
- Richard in Old Orchard Beach, ME on his Universal Audio LA-610 MkII mic preamp

All-Star Drums

A band is only as good as its drummer, and a drummer can only play their best on the right kit! Our All-Star list features your favorite drum kits of all shapes and sizes.

All-Star Quote:
"They look incredible, but more importantly, they sound even better. The tone of the toms was great once I got the top and bottom heads tuned the way I like them, and the bass drum is indescribably good. Such a magnificent, low 'THUMP!' to it with very little effort."
- Wade in Jefferson, GA on his Gretsch CM1E826 Catalina Maple kit

All-Star Guitar Effects Pedals

Every single effects pedal brings something different to a guitarist's sound, and with so many varieties available today, when one is considered a near universal favorite, it's a big deal. Check out some of our best-rated pedals!

All-Star Quote:
"Friggin' great distortion, subtle, to very harsh. Melvins to Molly Hatchet. Full on old school rat sound. And true bypass to boot. I love it."
- A happy owner of a ProCo Rat2 distortion pedal

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
