Guitar Kit Accessories

The Donner DST-1S Electric Guitar Kit comes with a gig bag (not shown), a 10-foot cable, guitar strap, capo, extra guitar strings, a digital clip-on tuner, and four guitar picks.

My favorite accessory in the pack is definitely the 3W MINI Electric Guitar Amplifier. I did a full review of this amp here: Donner Mini Guitar Amp Review.

In short, the three-watt mini amplifier is a great little amp for practicing at home or on the go. It’s portable and has a rechargeable battery via a USB cable .it also includes an auxiliary in for when you want to add some backing track music or use it as a speaker for your phone, tablet, laptop, or another device.

30 Days Unconditional Money Back Guarantee

Donner Offers a 30 Days Unconditional Money Back Guarantee Backed and Customer Support, so you can rest assured to buy their products. The Donner DST-1S Electric Guitar Kit comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.


Overall of this is a great bang for the buck beginner guitar package right in time for the holidays. Also great for a guitar mod project. 

The accessories package makes it a great bang for the buck. The mini amp, clip-on tuner, and capo are my favorite products of the pack.

The gig bag and the strap are what you’d expect from a guitar in this price range, they are nothing to write home about but will get the job done.

Out of the box, the term system is a little tight for my liking.
