With most drummers honing their chops at home during this global lockdown, Gruv Gear presses forward with game-changing products in preparation for musicians to travel and tour again. The new VELOC One-Trip Drum Transport system allows drummers to carry a 5-piece kit in a single trip, a feat never before possible with any drum bag solution.
The fully-integrated VELOC consists of a lightweight aluminum cart with an ingenious magnetic mount rail onto which the cases attach and stack vertically, creating a shelf-like system with convenient front openings for each case. This means the cases can be left on the cart, allowing drummers to set up and break down much quicker than ever before.
Once loaded, the VELOC cart can be moved with minimal effort in its tilted mode, with weight supported by the 4 never-flat wheels and ergonomic handle. Drummers, roadies and drum techs can easily maneuver through tight doorways, narrow aisles, and busy parking lots using just one hand.
The high-quality, tour-ready hybrid cases are constructed with tough, robust fabrics fused with an ABS/polycarbonate shell. They are available in the most common sizes for snare, kick and toms, and feature comfortable handles and shoulder strap options. The patent-pending design lets players access drums from either top or front, making them the most versatile drum bags ever designed. Each VELOC case is equipped with Gruv Gear’s Global Recovery Tag powered by HomingPIN recognized at nearly 3000 airports worldwide, so any lost or misplaced bags can be easily reunited with their owners.
The VELOC range also includes cases for double pedals, hardware and cymbals, all mountable on the cart. The cymbal case has a similar construction as the other VELOC cases with a few ingenious extras: Using a pair of standard drum sticks, the revolutionary case can be propped upright, and with the release of one strap allows the cymbal pockets to fan out for unmatched accessibility and convenience. It also comes with a detachable telescoping handle, Gruv Gear’s proprietary “snap-on” wheels first introduced on the Kapsule travel guitar bag, and a built-in TSA lock, making it the ultimate travel-ready cymbal case.
VELOC drum bags are offered in the following sizes:
· 8×10 Rack Tom
· 10×12 Rack Tom
· 6×14 Snare
· 14×16 Floor Tom
· 18×22 Bass/Kick
· 22″ Cymbals
· 19×12 Double Pedal
· 19×36 Hardware Bag
The fully integrated approach of the VELOC Drum Transport System fills a gap in the market and is set to transform the lives (and aching backs) of drummers and their techs, everywhere!
