Gifts for vocalists can be even trickier than those for other musicians – here are some great suggestions…

Musicians are tricky to buy gifts for. However, there are always accessories, or other bits and pieces connected to their instrument that can make choosing a gift a bit easier.

If you’re buying for a singer, this can seem even trickier still. I mean, what can you buy for a vocalist? Well, you’d be surprised…

Here are some suggestions that would make great gifts for vocalists…

Shure Beta 58A Microphone

Gifts for Vocalists

The SM58 is one of the most popular microphones ever made. Robust, great-sounding, and reliable it has everything you might need from a live vocal microphone.

The Beta 58a takes all of the classic elements of this famous mic and raises the bar with lower handling noise, better frequency response and better dynamic response, too. Put simply, it’s just as tough and robust, but it sounds better.

Boss VE-20 Vocal Performer

The Boss VE-20 is a twin compact FX pedal, much like the brand’s famous guitar FX pedals. Here, however, the VE-20 provides a feature set geared towards the vocalist.

There’s a high-quality mic input with phantom power (so that it can be used with condenser mics), and a set of great effects tuned towards the performing vocalist. Common effects such as reverbs, chorus and the like are present, along with more experimental effects like distortions, strobe and more.

Crucially, these can all be operated with a foot-press at the microphone.
