Published Oct 01, 2020If you're looking to keep up with the latest in equipment, or are in search of a new addition to your arsenal of instruments, Can Play Music is your source for music gear news and information.
Launched by Erikson Music, Can Play Music is a central hub through which musicians across the country can connect with Canada's largest distributor of musical instruments. Whether the product is a part of their workflow or still on the wish list, the site features videos, promos, instant rebates, giveaways and more.
Erikson is the exclusive Canadian distributor of KORG, Pearl, Marshall, Seymour Duncan, Nord, Washburn, Schecter, Nord, Vox, Digitech, Gator Cases, Hagstrom, Arturia, Quiklok, Oscar Schmidt and many more of the industry's biggest brands. While that roster covers an impressive amount of musical ground, Can Play Music's responsive design and filtering options create a smooth, simplistic search for users to find what they're looking for.
The site allows users to filter a primary tailored feed of Facebook and Instagram posts by brand, and should more specificity be required, it also allows users to category, taking their pick of instruments including guitar, drums, bass and keys, in addition to options for recording, accessories and support.
While Can Play Music and Erikson will have an exciting giveaway in Exclaim!'s annual Reader's Poll later this year, the site is currently giving players a chance to win an Arturia MicroFreak synthesizer. The hybrid hardware synth packs in a pile of sonic possibilities, created through included wavetable and digital oscillators, analog filters, a modulation matrix, and even a highly expressive touch plate.
Until October 14, users can submit a photo of their current keyboard, live or studio setup for a chance to win. Further contest entry details, rules and regulations can be found here.
