Solo Jamming Solutions

For most of us there is simply nothing like being in a band; playing and creating music with your mates and fellow musicians. It’s what keeps us committed, practicing and focused; and what ultimately fuels our creativity and musical development.

The current lockdown has made getting together with fellow musicians for a jam session or live performance difficult, even impossible. This might have left you feeling somewhat uninspired, running low on motivation and that all-important creativity. 

Fortunately today we have solutions that our heroes and great artists of the past lacked – a vast array of tools & inspiration-igniting equipment that breaks down the cocoon of isolation and removes the boredom of one-person jamming. Whether it’s individually recreating a band experience in your own home, or connecting and collaborating with other artists online from within lockdown, there is a solution to fit your unique needs and circumstances.

We offer a wide selection of affordable, quality gear to solve your solo jamming constraints; backed by our awesome team of knowledgeable, experienced staff dedicated to helping you to amplify your talent.
