Anyways, I'm not sure how big the discounts are during black friday. I'm wondering how much cash I should bring with me. I plan on picking up
1.) Tube amp in the $400 area.
2.) Cheap pedal for distortion over drive
3.) Possibly pickups for my mim strat, depending on big the deals are

Does anyone remember how cheap they got stuff last year e.x
"MiM strats are usually $500, I got mine for $299."

I'm def looking to upgrade a fair bit if the savings are great.

Yeah, Black friday is the friday after thanksgiving, and it's marked as the beginning of the X-mas shopping season.

That being said, if you play D-Addario, They sell their 25 set box of strings (I've seen 10/52's and 9/48's. Dunno if they get any higher than those) for around 70 Bucks usually, so you'd be able to pick up that for a pretty sweet deal.

Usually.

I hated when U.S.A got that Guitar Center 70% off deal a while back though.

And I hate Long And Maquade, which basically is Canada's main music store IMO.

EDIT: Just remembered that you guys have Thanksgiving a month after us. I was going to say "Isn't Thanksgiving over?"

Go for the Peavey 6505 112 combo if you play anything with distortion, but since you have a strat I'm going to guess you are more into Alt/Blues/Rock?
Blues Jr. or Peavey Classic would be your best bet.
So if you want to get an amp plus pedal, I would say $700-800 to get good gear. By all means, try to find the best deals, but don't expect to pay much less than about $600 on good gear.

I got my $600 C1+ for $400, but it wasn't Black Friday, lol. But I got an Ibanez and about 4 cables for like $250 a few years back, normal was $350.
