Pepper Sells What?! Ten Great Gifts You Didn’t Know We Had


To give you a leg up this year, we have compiled a list of ten great accessories that you may not even know we have. Take a look and check some items off your gift list!


EarbudsEar Plugs

We’re not trying to say anything specific here, we just know that sometimes you need to protect your ears. That said, these can make great presents for music parents. If you have students, why not share this idea with them?





Your music room looks great, honestly. But don’t you think it could look even better? Pepper has an excellent selection of posters for any ensemble or classroom. Need to announce a concert? Customize your posters and spread the word!



Sousa padSousaphone Pad

I would like to assume everyone knows why one of these is necessary, but if you have doubts, consider placing six or seven textbooks on your shoulder and walking around for an hour. Was that fun? If it was, we would like you to take up the Sousaphone. If not, grab a pad for the Sousa players you know.



pBones and pTrumpetsphorn

Whether they’re clumsy or just colorful, a pHorn is a great gift for the young musician in your life. The pHorn sounds remarkably like a standard brass instrument, and when one of your trombone players inevitably drops his instrument down the stairs at a football game, you won’t have to spend your time getting dents out of brass.






Picture this for a moment: your musicians, be they your students or your children, playing together in perfect harmony… as far as you know, because you can’t hear a thing! JamHub lets up to five people plug in and play together at once. They can hear one another, but you don’t hear a peep. Sounds good, right?



Piano Lampspiano lamp

Tired of straining to read your music in the dark of the auditorium? You could turn the lights on and ruin the ambiance, or you could get a piano lamp. Never thought of that, did you?

…You did? Well, then you’ve come to the right place!





ligaturesLigatures and Caps

Looking for an exciting gift to light up the face of the clarinet player in your life? Consider, instead, these vital accessories. It’s like giving a pack of sturdy socks. No one asks for them, but it’s not like they won’t use them, so how can they be upset about it, right?







Do you know a teenage girl with 15 sundresses, horn-rimmed glasses and perfectly straightened bangs? She may not be aware of it yet, but she wants a ukulele. Just trust us on this one – we do market research.





stand cup holderManhasset Stand with Trumpet Mute Holder

If you have trumpeters, you’re going to want a mute. That’s not a knock on trumpeters, muted trumpets sound awesome. Word of caution to community band directors, though, these holders also work for cups, so just be aware of what your trumpet section is drinking during performances.





Gift Cardsgift-cards-new

If you can’t seem to decide on what fantastic item to purchase for your musically inclined friend, you might consider throwing in the towel and going with a gift card. Honestly, you can never go wrong letting someone choose their own gift. Plus, you avoid the embarrassment of purchasing a book of baritone vocal solos for your soprano. Why take the risk?
