2016 Holiday Gift Guide: Guitar Crate

Stephs Cheers and Jeers was provided the samples mentioned in this post in return for an unbiased review.


Guitar Crate was started by Pete and TJ with the intention of providing guitarists with gear they actually want. Each crate features a selection of useful and valuable tools that any guitarist can use from brands such as D’addario, Ernie Ball, Seymore Duncan, Dunlop and more.

Guitar Crate recently sent me one of their crates to test out and I gotta say I was really excited with them being my first gear review.

The box contained:


  • Jim Dunlop Prime Tone Sculpted 1.3 mm picks
  • Dunlop Heavy Gel Picks
  • Dunlop Nickle Wound 10’s
  • D’Addario Mini Clip On Tuner
  • D’Addario String Changing Stand

I was impressed with the items I received, my only complaint is the gauge of the strings,even though I am a Dunlop String user, the gauge of these strings are not what I typically use for my band, however when you subscribe to the box you are normally able to pick the gauge of the strings you want. The string changing stand was a great addition because I don’t currently own one and they definitely come in handy. Overall I gotta say this is a great subscription box for guitar players and I would highly recommend it to anyone regardless of their experience level.

Guitar Crate has two subscriptions to choose from, the first is basic which gets you a set of strings, some picks and something extra for $9.99 a month, the second is plus which gets you two sets of strings, picks, and a set of items themed around different styles of guitar playing for $29.99 a month.
