Must Have Accessories For Any Electric Guitar
by FRANK GLOVER
When you buy an electric guitar, you know that there are accessories that you can get that will make your playing easier or sound nicer. Just having the guitar itself is not enough.
Below we will discuss what some of the essentials are that you should purchase to go along with your electric guitar and why you might want to have these things.
The first thing to get is an electric tuner. You might have the skill to tune by ear which is great. No one should just rely on using a tuner and never learn how to tune without one.
The problem is that if you are playing at places there are times where it is so loud that you can’t tune by ear because you can’t hear the guitar. You have to have an electric tuner.
Get strap locks for your guitar. Strap locks are a way of attaching the strap to the guitar through a system that ensures that it will not fall. It will bolt onto the guitar through ball bearings holding it no matter how much it moves or how much weight is hanging from the guitar. This is a great way to protect your guitar from being damaged.
Get a practice amp with a headphone jack. Not all times you can play with your large amplifier. Having a headphone jack is even better because you can plug in headphones and practice while not disturbing others.
A multi effects peddle is something you might consider buying. This will let you play many different effects at the same time. The advantage of this is that you will sound nicer when you play and it can make playing your guitar more fun.
Buy a hard shell case for your guitar especially if you take it around with you a lot. This is needed because it will protect your guitar and hold much of your gear inside of it like a peddle, picks, your strap, and your tuner. It is nice to have everything all in one place that is protected.
