Gruv Gear Releases the Kapsule Duo

A fusion of hard- and soft-shell case designs that can hold two instruments.

Orange County, CA (July 13, 2020) -- Gruv Gear’s new and innovative Kapsule Duo travel case is the follow-up to its wildly successful Kapsule, but this time gives guitarists and bassists a perfect solution to carry TWO instruments in a well-protected, humidity-controlled, easy-to-use wheeled case. It sets the standard for check-in friendly, lightweight electric guitar and bass cases that traveling musicians have been craving, and preps the serious player for touring again after the global pandemic eases.

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. 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. The Kapsule Duo features a deeper protective shell than the original Kapsule, wherein each instrument is isolated with a generously padded divider.

The case features a unique Iso Chamber which suspends and isolates the instrument’s headstock, keeping it safe from impact damage during transport. It also includes multiple storage pockets for amps, pedals, cables, strings or even clothes for up to a 5-day trip, making it the perfect all-in-one musician’s luggage. The included two-way humidity control packs provided by Boveda absorbs or releases moisture as required, to create and maintain the optimal humidity for the instruments within. Gruv Gear offers an optional Power Package featuring the Oktane wireless power bank and cables to keep phones and tablets charged on the go.

Carrying and moving two electric guitars or basses is simple and easy with the Kapsule Duo. The wide shoulder straps make the case easy to carry, and can now be tucked in before checking in. Gruv Gear’s unique snap-on wheels attach in seconds, and combined with the improved stability of the top handle ensures smooth and effortless walking through international airports, local streets and subways, and getting to gigs at downtown clubs and venues.

For added peace of mind, the Kapsule Duo is fitted with an industry-standard TSA lock and Gruv Gear’s built-in lost-and-found Global Recovery Tag feature, recognized in nearly 3,000 airports worldwide. Musicians can add the optional voice-controlled Bluetooth Tracker to help locate their case backstage or in a crowded airport baggage claim area. A free downloadable app for Apple or Android is included.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
