Halloween Guitar Gear!

In the spirit of Halloween, we’ve decided to bring together a list of some of our favorite pieces of music gear that go great with the spookiest holiday of the year. Whether you’re looking for an ax any ghoul would be proud of, creepy accessories to accentuate your scary style or effects that go bump in the night, the products below are a perfect fit for a rock and roll Halloween.





Pretty Much Anything From B.C. Rich

With so many designs that fit perfectly with the spirit of Halloween, it’s hard to pick just a couple of B.C. Rich guitars to highlight. But if we had to, the Warlock series would most definitely be on the short list. Featuring a gruesomely aggressive look and wicked sound, these metal-centric axes are tailor-made for Halloween. We also should mention the Avenge SOB, a frightfully awesome electric designed to rock. Featuring a red edged Beast style headstock, black hardware, blood red bevels and beast wing inlays, this ax hits all the marks when it comes to grisly style. And at less than $300, it’s perfect for any monsters out there looking for an affordable ax with plenty of great features.

Schecter Synyster Gates SYN AC-GA SC and SYN-J Acoustic-Electric Guitars

If acoustics are more your thing, we got the perfect pair in mind in the form of the Synyster Gates SYN AC-GA SC and SYN-J from Schecter Guitar Research. Just like the man who bears their name, these acoustics come with a heavy dose of style and substance. These two acoustics are much more than just a couple of guitars painted black as they come with plenty of features that give it a dark edge perfect for Halloween, including gothic cross inlays, Deathbat trim and more. And while you don’t have plug in to scare up some licks, you definitely have the option as both guitars are equipped with acoustic pickups, an onboard preamp, and a built-in tuner.













Effects Pedals

While a guitar with a hellish design will certainly give you a great look for Halloween, effects pedals are what will deliver the sound. There are definitely a ton of options to choose from, but I recommend beginning with pedals made to deliver plenty of spooky ambiance such as a wickedly awesome reverb/delay. From ethereal echoes to alien like reverb that will make you swear you're about to be abducted, a great reverb/delay pedal is integral in getting a ghoulish sound. If you're looking for something a bit more on the strangely spooky side, consider adding a Flanger or Phaser pedal to the mix. These three type of effects can get you sounds so experimental that even Dr. Frankenstien would be jealous! And finally, nothing beats a good Wah-Wah pedal to make your guitar scream like banshee and finish it up with a good distortion or overdrive pedal for a sound that will even wake the dead! Below are a few of my personal recommendations:

All three Coffin Case models feature the same tough as nails multi-plywood construction and shock-resistant velvet pillow interior to ensure that your beast is tucked away safely inside.
