Gruv Gear Announces Kapsule Duo Bass Case
Gruv Gear has added to their Kapsule line of travel cases with the Kapsule Duo. The design, which fuses aspects of hard and soft cases, can carry two basses in a humidity-controlled case.
“The Kapsule Duo is an impeccable fusion of both hard and soft cases, allowing musicians to carry it backpack style, traditional suitcase, or roll it using the included snap-on wheels,” a press release explains. “It’s cleverly constructed using a tough ABS/polycarbonate shell combined with a thick layer of lightweight expanded polystyrene for excellent shock absorption. The interior is further lined with foam and a soft fabric lining throughout, keeping your guitars safe and secure while traveling for concerts and shows.”
Central to the Kapsule design is an Iso chamber that suspends the bass’s headstock. It also features several pockets for carrying accessories or even clothes for the tour. A Boveda two-way humidity control pack absorbs or releases moisture to keep the interior at the right level. Finally, Gruv Gear fits the Kapsule Duo with a TSA Lock and their own Global Recovery Tag, which is used at nearly 3,000 airports to help track your bass. Options for the case include an Oktane wireless power bank or a voice-controlled Bluetooth Tracker.
The Gruv Gear Kapsule Duo will be shipping this month with a street price of $499.99.
