We’ve done the research for you – 2017 is going to be the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Ever!
Here are 3 Reasons Why…
- Music Retailers are panicking – traditional stores will fight harder to get your business now more than ever.
- Amazon, Amazon, Amazon! – Just yesterday the word is that Amazon has introduced YET ANOTHER layer of discounts for ukuleles.
- Consumers have changed – we expect ukulele discounts all year round now – the urgency has gone so Black Friday deals have to get BETTER to get us to buy.

2017 Guitar Center Black Friday / Cyber Monday Ukulele Sales
Who are they?
Guitar Center is pretty large. They claim to be the world’s largest retailer of guitars, amplifiers, drums, keyboards, recording, live sound, DJ, and lighting equipment, however so do Musician’s Friend. I say we schedule an MMA style cage fight between their CEOs – winner takes all! They have around 260 stores in the U.S. and have been doing their thing for around 53 years now. We really, really love their marketing strapline “All we sell is the greatest feeling on earth”. To be honest, we wish we would have thought of it…
Guitar Center is having some sales on ukuleles, mostly on Rogue and Mitchell brand products or so it would seem.
We’ll have to wait a little longer to find out exactly what they are planning for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Check out this link to see all the ukuleles listed, they may add more or change the sales for Cyber Monday.

We’ve based the above assertions on the following articles, research, and indicators:
- The Music Trades reports that the retail value of the US market was flat once again in 2016, being just marginally ahead of 2015. Its positive note was the huge variety of products available these days, and that there has never been a better time to be a consumer of music products. The US economy is stubbornly sluggish. Find the article here.
- Only 35% of consumers who plan to shop during Thanksgiving week will do so on Black Friday, down from 51% last year and 59% in 2015, according to PwC. www.pwc.com
- The Washington Post. “Retailers have conditioned the consumer to believe everything’s on sale every day, which means the deals on Black Friday are not significantly different from any other time.”
