Rockready Releases Volo Gig Bags

Volo bags have a hard wearing shell, high-density padding, and many other features perfect for gig life.

New York, NY (July 10, 2015) -- The Volo gig bag is rugged, durable, and comfortable. Rockready designed the Volo gig bag to be tour ready and the perfect solution for everyday gigs and rehearsals.

The Volo gig bag protects your guitar and helps you organize all your gig and rehearsal items. It comes equipped with a hard-wearing shell, impact resistant high-density padding, integrated ABS panels, and a neck support to protect against drops and falls. The design team added discreet and easy to reach pockets for your phone and keys and high quality locking zippers. To make those long walks around town or at the airport more comfortable they’ve added padded shoulder straps and a trekking style chest clip. And the team knew from experience that lots of your travels would be at night, so they’ve designed a very stylish reflective piping that adds assurance for night-time safety.

There’s also the Volo Mini bag which detaches easily from the Volo with four hook and loop attachment points. The padded shoulder strap adjusts so you can carry it over either shoulder. It features a padded pocket to carry a tablet so you don’t need to worry about scratching the screen. It’s also roomy enough to fit a micro pedal board. You can carry all your essentials to the stage or around town in the Mini.

The Rockready Volo gig bag is available for guitar and bass. Rockready plans a full range of guitar accessories and effect pedals designed to meet the needs of working musicians.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

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.
