Performing Songwriter Tech Editor Checks Out New SKB Products

February 15, 2007

From Performing Songwriter:



"The most trusted name in gear protection has earned their reputation again in 2007, announcing new products that raise the bar for design ingenuity and comfort. For drummers, the rolling Roto-X 24in Cymbal Vault features a heavy-duty pull-out handle and protective pads for storing up to 7 cymbals. Roto-molded keyboard cases are also providing great protection at lower weights, for 61, 76, and 88 note keyboards. The same roto-handle design from the cymbal vaults is employed in the new Powered Mixer soft cases. These rolling lightweight cases are sized for the already rugged class of powered mixers popularized by Peavey, Mackie, Kustom, and the like. Soft material makes them lighter and less expensive, and the roto handle and wheels make them incredibly portable. SKB's most ahead-of-the-curve strides this year are represented by the new hardshell guitar cases displayed last month at NAMM. The latches are recognized by the TSA, which means you can trust your guitar to stay safely locked within and still have it inspected by security. From the latches to the full-length neck support to the soft, cushioned handle, these guitar cases will pamper you until you need one for every guitar you own! SKB's biggest revelation for live sound this year is the GigRig - a rolling rackmount system that employs several design innovations perfect for bands or engineers on the move. The lid of the GigRig lifts off and then fits under the rest of the rack, acting as a pedestal to raise the rest of the rack up to working height. Improved depth allows you to leave top or rear-mounted XLRs plugged in to larger mixers like the Yamaha 01V96 or the Mackie Onyx. The GigRig is also expandable - you can buy more rackspace!"
