EurekaSound Introduces RackLegs

RackLegs connects to the rear rack rails of any standard 2U rack case.

Pittsburgh, PA (July 22, 2014) -- EurekaSound LLC is proud to announce the release of RackLegs, the perfect way for a musician to place rackmount effects at their feet. RackLegs, which connect to the rear rack rails of any standard 2U rack case with thumbscrews, are made from 3/16" steel providing unmoving support & stability. Painted flat black with rubber end caps for floor grip, RackLegs angle a rack case for optimal viewing while on stage.

"Musicians love the power and portability of rackmount effects, but until now have had no way to view them well on stage" said Matt Matessa, co-founder of EurekaSound. "No more will musicians have to keep their effects off stage, or worse yet, precariously balanced on their amplifiers. And it's a perfect solution for all of our EurekaPROM-enabled FCB1010 users."

And for the musician who doesn't need a ruggedized travel case, EurekaSound also offers RackArms, a less expensive alternative to a case. RackArms in conjunction with RackLegs puts rackmount effects at an optimal viewing angle for half the price.

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
