Grizman Leathers Custome Leather Straps

Manufacturer:
Grizman Leathers

Model:
Custome Leather Strap

Comments:
To put this quite simply, I can not give enough praise for the quality and caring that went into my custom leather strap. I asked for a very simple and straight foward design for my Grizman Leathers Strap. What I got exceeded my expectations. Steve Walter (Griz) felt that the design would suffer with what I had in mind. Still keeping with my request he added an extra flare that made it complete and perfect. I received my strap already set to the same length as my original strap.

Line6 TonePort UX2

Manufacturer:
Line6

Model:
UX2

Comments:
Getting started with computer-based recording confuses a lot of people. And one of the tricker aspects, when you're new to it, is the most basic: how do you get the sound of your bass into your computer? There are many answers to that question. One of the most popular approaches is to use a USB 2.0 or FireWire-based audio interface. Line6's TonePort UX2 takes the USB approach and provides all the functionality that most solo recording projects could want.
the front of the TonePort UX2
Ins & Outs
On the front, going from left to right, you have two XLR mic inputs, a phantom power switch, two 1/4" guitar/bass inputs, a pair of assignable VU meters, and a 1/4" stereo headphone jack. On the top, you have knobs for mic gain (one for each XLR input), headphone volume, and output (for external monitors, if you have any plugged into the back of it).

Need a Rack Bag?

Manufacturer:
GigSkinz

Model:
GSRB3U 19"

Comments:
Well, I needed a new rack and since I am building up one I thought I would pick me up something inexpensive for now.
I looked around before heading to my local shop and decided I would get a gig bag style rack.
Once at the shop I see they have a GigSkinz 3U rack bag. Nice looking bag. Not yer typical black bag but a shiny silver surface designed to reflect light and keep the temperature down in the bag.
The bag its self is made of some type of carbon weave that is used a lot in motocross and snowboarding and is very durable. The zippers are strong and well stitched in. There is a pocket on the outside for cables and other misc. gear. A shoulder strap and two handles for carrying.
