The Source Canada: Jay Turser Electric Guitar Only $110 (Was $160)

The Source Canada: Jay Turser Electric Guitar Only $110 (Was $160)

If you have a music lover on your gift list, check out this deal at the Source, with up to 40% off musical instruments and accessories. While I price compared most of the deals here, many of them were the same price elsewhere, except this Jay Turser electric guitar, which is now only $109.99, was $159.99.

For the developing musician, this electric guitar has a double cutaway body, white pick guard, rosewood fingerboard, and maple neck. It looks classic and has great sound. There is a volume control and two tone controllers, as well as a five-way pickup selector and chrome die cast tuners.

I found a few reviews for this guitar online including this one:

This guitar is awesome in ways and bad in others. For the price this guitar kicks ass. Its best sound quality is in clean electric, the notes are bright and clear. Distortion is where this guitar lags behind. Chords are sometimes hard to make out, and the pickups hum really bad. You can get rid of this hum by selecting 2 pickups at once, but then the sound quality is lower…This guitar is well put together. It’s durable, fairly light weight and balanced really nice. When you get a strap on it it rests perfectly flat against you. The pickups were fairly well adjusted (their pretty cheap so they are probably at their full potential).

Depending on what you need, this makes an affordable guitar that is durable, has good sound quality, and may make a great gift idea.

Roots Canada: Free Collection Of Holiday Music

Posted by on December 8, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Roots Canada: Free Collection Of Holiday Music

Roots Canada is offering a free holiday music bundle on iTunes. I really appreciate these free music bundles as a way to get to know new artists.

I am not a huge fan of free music, but there are some classic names in this collection I just had to have. You will get the following songs:

  • Jingle Bells by Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters
  • Christmas Time With You (feat. Andre Miguel Mayo) by David Ian
  • Christmas for You and Me by Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Ella Fitzgerald
  • Christmas Kiss by Meaghan Smith
  • A Snowglobe Christmas by Pink Martini

If for no other reason, getting this collection for Ella Fitzgerald’s voice is totally worth it. However, my personal favourite is Bing Crosby *fangirl scream*! I just adore the man and this is a lovely classic rendition of Jingle Bells. I haven’t listened to the other songs… yet!

All Star Learning Canada: Baby Grand Piano $160 & Free Shipping

Posted by on November 19, 2013 at 5:00 PM

All Star Learning Canada: Baby Grand Piano $160 & Free Shipping

If you want to get your music-inclined child an amazing gift, check out this Schoenhut Baby Grand Piano, now on for $159.99, was $184.99. Also, you’d think a large item like this might cost quite a bit in shipping, but it ships for free!

Made for age 3-7, this piano is gorgeous with curved legs and comes in white, black or pink. It is durable as well, as we know toddlers and young children can be rough of their stuff. This piano is the perfect way to introduce your child to music before switching to a larger model.

I priced compared this model of piano and couldn’t find it for less than $200 and Amazon even has it for $239. There are over 100 reviews on Amazon and it is given an overall 4.5 stars, which is pretty great! One reviewer said:

This little grand piano is beautiful and will make a very nice gift for your budding Mozart. I don’t think toddlers will care that it’s so sturdy, shiny, and pretty; they’ll just want to bang away at the keys. The sound is like every other cheap toy piano – loud, high, and tinny, but it’s for fun and who knows where it can lead?

SiriusXM Internet Radio: 12 Months For $48

Posted by on November 6, 2013 at 11:00 PM

SiriusXM Internet Radio: 12 Months For $48

Get a full year of SiriusXM Internet radio for only $48!

First thing to know is that this is Internet radio not satellite radio. So this won’t work with your car’s satellite radio system but rather with your computer, smartphone or tablet. It’s basically the same service except it’s delivered over the internet as opposed to a satellite.

Normally the service is $95.88 but you save $47.88. It’s yours for $48! Pretty sweet deal.

Now, last time I wrote up a deal for SiriusXM, someone mentioned that they are pretty slimy with trying to keep you using their service. Well, I signed up for a free trial just to try it out. I knew I wasn’t going to use it because I don’t really like music all that much and I am always listening to podcasts and audiobooks in the car. So even though the service is great, I cancelled before my free trial was up. Then I got billed by SiriusXM. I was looking towards a fight to get my money back but when I called them up the lady who helped me refunded my money immediately and I saw the transaction come through my bank three days later! Other than the initial issues it was a great experience.

Pringles: 3 Free MP3s With Pringles Purchase

Pringles: 3 Free MP3s With Pringles Purchase

Pringles is offering Canadians a nice extra gift when you purchase a can of Pringles. Just mail in your original receipt complete with your song order form and you will receive download codes for three free songs (of your choice) from the Pringles’ digital store.

I would not purchase a can of Pringles just to get the songs as the cost of the Pringles and the cost of the stamp sort of defeats the purpose. However, if you buy Pringles anyway (my husband loves them) this is a great freebie for Canadians. Evidently the US version of this offer only gives out two songs.

Peter from My Bulging Wallet sent this deal to us and he said “I’ve used Pringles’ digital store to download some songs. It has a pretty broad selection.” That is always my concern. Since I buy all my music legit, I value free mp3 offers but worry about the selection of websites offering deals like this. Good to hear they have a decent selection. Thanks Peter!

Music Notes Freebie: October Free Downloads

I’ve told you about Music Notes free downloads before, but now they have some great Halloween tunes for October to download for free!

It looks like every month means more new downloads of sheet music at Music Notes. This month, the song is “Have You Seen The Ghost of John?”. You can get the sheet music for many types of instruments for this song like guitar, piano, viola and much more.

On top of having this month’s free download, they have even more free sheet music, plus so much you can buy for cheap! They have a giant list of Halloween songs for download and I think my favourite would be the Monster Mash!

The Source: Up to $25 Off Coby MP3 Players

The Source: Up to $25 Off Coby MP3 Players

Pick up a Coby Touchscreen MP3 player on sale at The Source Canada. Save $15 or $25 depending on which size you choose.

The Coby MP800 1.44″ touchscreen video MP3 player is on sale from $39.99 down to $24.99. This device has 4GB of integrated flash memory and is a compact MP3 player for people on the go.

The COBY MP823 2″ touchscreen video MP3 player was $59.99 and is now on sale for $34.99. It has 8GB of integrated flash memory for those with larger music collections.

The devices both feature:

  • Colour TFT LCD screen
  • Plays music, video, photos and text
  • Integrated FM radio
  • ID3 and LRC support for song and lyric information display
  • USB 2.0 hi-speed for fast file transfers
  • Integrated rechargeable battery

I price compared the bigger model with Future Shop Canada. They have it for $49.95, so The Source is significantly cheaper. Shipping is $4.99 but you can get it delivered to your local store for free.

I wrote about this sale because not everyone can afford an iPod and not everyone wants or even likes the iPod. This MP3 player is an affordable alternative that fits into almost any budget.

MusicNotes has been blogged before on Bargainmoose, with great deals on downloadable music sheets. However, did you know they offer free downloadable music sheets as well?

Each month, Music Notes offers a different freebie. This month the freebie is Down By The Bay, as originally recorded by Raffi. You can get the piano, vocal or chords music sheets for this tune. They also have other instruments and sheet music for Down By The Bay. This song is a fun one for little ones and you can customize your lyrics, too.

iTunes Canada: Greatest Hit Albums Only $6.99

iTunes Canada has a nice deal on greatest hit albums. These albums are on sale for only $6.99 each for this weekend only.

Select from these ten albums:

I have to go old-fashioned on this one: I am mostly interested in the greatest hits of Fleetwood Mac and Journey, both fabulous bands of their time. I have heard really good things about Radiohead though, and might check their greatest hits out as a good way to get introduced to a new-to-me band.

  • Expiry: Unknown

We are living in an awesome time. The internet is producing companies like Amazon’s Create Space and Kindle Direct Publishing so that you can publish and sell your books online and in stores. FreshBooks lets you do billing easily, quickly and on your own. AWS lets you spin up servers, storage and more on a whim. And SpinnUp lets you publish your music on your own.

SpinnUp lets you publish your music to all the major digital music distributors. Right now the stores they publish to are:

  • Spotify
  • iTunes
  • Google Play
  • Amazon
  • Rhapsody
  • WiMP

All you have to do is upload a high quality (WAV or FLAC) file of your song and SpinnUp does the rest. You get to keep the rights to your music, you get all the royalties, but they do all the hard work pushing the track out to all the stores. I know from doing the book publishing thing that it is infuriatingly difficult to get your book on all the major platforms. Amazon wants something different than Kobo who has a requirement that doesn’t work with iBooks whose Naziesque rules don’t make any sense at all. And this is just eBooks. I can’t imagine the foolishness you’d need to go through for music.

This coupon lets you publish one track for free!

July 11 Free Cymbal Set With Drum Purchase

Posted by on July 11, 2013 at 2:30 PM Free Cymbal Set With Drum Purchase

Get a free set of Zildjian cymbals with a CB percussion five-piece kit at

Looking to add some music to your life and want to make some big noise? Drums are the obvious choice. I’ve always had an affinity for drums, and of course, drummers. Unfortunately, I am so not musically inclined. I’m so bad that when I tried to play the drums in grade 8 music, I was banished to the bells. You know, the one you ding once or twice in an entire song. But, if you are a song murderer like me, get yourself these drums, learn a killer Van Halen song and prove them all wrong! This also makes a great gift for grandparents to give their grandkids.

The drum set is $299, was $364.99, with a suggested retail price of $599.95. The cymbals retail for $102.99, but have a suggested retail price of $210. Doing my own research, the cymbal price is around $100 at other stores and the drums sell for quite a bit more than the $299, so this is a wicked deal.

These drums are for the beginning drummer and comes in your choice of black, bronze, indigo, wine, platinum and steel. You’ll get a 22″ x 15″ bass, 12″ x 9″ deep and 13″ x 10″ deep toms with heavy duty mounts, 16″ x 16″ floor tom, and a 5-1/2″ x 14″ 6 lug matching wood snare.

Simply add the percussion set and the cymbals to your cart and the cymbals will show as no charge.

Shipping is free!

There are ten albums to choose from:

I am a big classic rock fan, so I am familiar with and a big fan of AC/DC, Queen, and the Eagles. I have to say that the last album from David Bowie (aka the one above) was a huge disappointment.

I can also highly recommend the Muse album above as I own it and love it.

My only other experience with the list above is the song Red Hands by Walk Off the Earth, which I own and enjoy as well. I will be considering picking up the rest of the album in this sale.
