If you’re already a guitar player, you probably know how much the music world is changing. The traditional ways of playing are being challenged by new technologies and gadgets. It can be hard to keep up on all the latest developments, but now there’s no need to feel overwhelmed! In this article, I’ll go over eight smart guitar gadgets that will enhance your guitar playing experience in ways you never thought possible. Whether it’s a pedal board or wireless tuner, these are the best new gadgets for your guitar!
Pickup enhancers are small devices that can be attached to the guitar, to improve the sound of the pickups. These little gadgets work by boosting low frequencies and giving more power to your pickups. They’re great for all types of guitars, whether they’re passive or active.
This is probably one of my favorite gadgets because it really helps me get a better sound out of my guitar. With a pickup enhancer on my Stratocaster, I can get almost any sound I want while playing live – from clean pop-rock tones through to heavy metal distortion tones with ease.
- It must be easy to use
- It must be reliable
- It should be easy to read
- It should be easy to carry and store
- And it should work with a wide variety of instruments
Guitar Accessory Packs
If you’re looking to get a lot of gear at a great price, guitar accessory packs are the way to go. They can also be a great way to start your guitar playing journey. The best part? You get everything you need in one handy box!
Guitar accessory packs are such a good deal because they allow beginners and experienced players alike to skip the expensive trial and error process that comes with finding out which guitar accessories work best for them. Instead of wasting money on things you don’t need, or sticking with something that isn’t working well for your personal style, these packs offer all the essentials at once so there’s no guesswork involved.
Specialty Amp Packs
If you’re just starting out, an amp pack is a great way to get your hands on a portable rig and experiment with different sound options without having to commit immediately. For example, the Fender Mustang 1 V2 11 Watt 1×8 Portable Guitar Combo Amp Pack includes a Mustang 1 V2 amp, gig bag, strap and picks which makes it perfect if you want to try out different sounds and brands without having to invest in all of them at once.
If you are an advanced player who has been playing for years but always wanted something more then this could be exactly what you need! Take the ESP LTD EC1000QMNTQS Electric Guitar Package for example: It comes complete with everything that beginning guitarists need including cables and even an instructional DVD so that anyone can learn how to play an electric guitar quickly and easily!
Guitar Storage Bags
When you’re not using your guitar, it needs to be protected. A guitar storage bag can protect against dust, dirt and moisture. It also keeps your guitar in tune so when you pick it up again, it will be in the same condition as when you put it away.
Many bags have a plastic layer that protects against scratches and nicks on your instrument’s finish. If there is no hard plastic inside, then the fabric of the bag is usually safe enough to not damage a high-end guitar but who knows? It could happen! If this is something that concerns you, then I highly recommend investing in one with an inner lining made from neoprene or some other type of rubberized material that prevents scratches from happening inside the case as well as outside (where most people will see them).
Besides protecting against these things though, another reason why having an extra storage space for your instruments makes sense is so they don’t get stolen! Not only do these types of cases provide more protection than just leaving them out on display somewhere where anyone could easily grab them off their stands but especially if there are children around who might want one too badly!
Guitar Water Bottles
Water bottles are a great way to stay hydrated while you’re on the road. They’re easy to carry, refill, clean, and store. Plus they come in a range of colors so you can choose one that best matches your style!
If you’re looking for an even more convenient way to stay hydrated during your guitar practice session or gig at home or on stage then check out our new line of Guitar Water Bottles. These bottles come with a rubber case that fits over the mouthpiece so it won’t slip through your fingers once wet from drinking water all day long – perfect for all ages including kids who love playing music just like their parents do (their parents might need one too).
Smart Guitars and Smart Guitar Pads
- Smart Guitar Pads
Smart guitar pads are a new technology that allows you to connect your guitar to your phone. The pad connects via Bluetooth and it has an app that lets you control the pitch of the strings on your guitar. This means that if you are playing a song on piano, violin or any other instrument in the same key as your guitar string, it will play without having to change chords. It also has drum machines built in so you can practice playing along with tracks using your own instrument instead of using headphones or speakers at home. Smart Guitar Pads are very easy to use; all users have to do is download an app from Google Play Store or Apple Store and then follow instructions for installation and setup of their device.*
- How does it work?
The smart guitar uses capacitive touch sensors placed over each fret of its neck-mounted surface panel (touchscreen). These sensors measure where fingers touch down onto these surfaces during gameplay sessions much like how we use smartphones today: by pressing our thumbs down against displays either side of them—but only one at time! In this way we can tell which notes have been played during improvisations/jamming sessions before recording them digitally afterward because there will always be multiple sounds coming out simultaneously when someone plays music live.”
Apps You Can Use
You’ll love the many ways apps can help you learn, play and record. You might use one to learn a new song or practice your scales, or even to record yourself playing so you can listen back to it later. There are some great apps out there, but these are the ones we think will make a difference in your guitar experience:
- Jammit – This app is great for learning songs from any genre of music. It’s easy-to-use interface allows you to jam along with any song in your library using any instrument sound imaginable! The app also includes features like metronome settings, an auto scrolling feature that keeps track of where you should be at all times during practice sessions so there’s no need for counting (very important), chord diagrams which show how each chord should look on screen when playing along with others before they’re heard – this helps keep fingers on strings instead of hitting incorrect notes by accident during practice sessions which would happen if chords weren’t visible until after hearing them first time around (or maybe twice).
- Guitar Pro 7 Lite Edition – This free version allows users who do not own acoustic guitars yet still want access top quality sounds while learning how best not only their mind but also body moves together when strumming strings properly before attempting anything remotely difficult like shredding solos off key (which happens sometimes!). Plus there is an option called “smart mode” where users get feedback instantly if something isn’t right every time without having any prior knowledge about how hard certain things should feel when pressed down hard enough without hurting yourself so much that it prevents fingers from performing well enough for sustained periods over long periods such as days/weeks/months…

- TUNERS – Tuners come in all shapes and sizes but they all do the same thing: keep your guitar tuned properly. There are digital tuners which tell you what note is being played as well as how far off from being in tune it is (most have a meter on them). There are also analog tuners which just show if it’s sharp or flat without giving an exact number in cents like most digital models do. I recommend having both types so that when one breaks down (which happens often) you have another one handy for backup!
- PICKS – Picks come in different materials such as nylon (the plastic ones), tortoise shell (the original plastic), celluloid (just like tortoise shell but made from other materials), metal such as brass or stainless steel which gives a brighter tone than tortoiseshell because they don’t dampen vibrations like wood does (you can even find picks with built-in magnets). Whatever type of material appeals to you just remember that most professionals prefer either nylon or plastic because they’re less expensive than tortoise shell while still giving good tone quality!
The world of musical gadgets is a constantly changing one, and the market for guitar-related technology is especially wide-open. There are hundreds of gadgets out there, and this list only scratches the surface of what’s available. But if you’re new to all this stuff, these gadgets should give you a good starting point on your journey toward better playing—and maybe even composing!
