Gigster, styled like a traveling suitcase, was designed with the coffee shop, indie band in mind. This 2.6-octave (A#3 to F6) vibraphonette offers 1 1/4 x 1/2-inch high-polished aluminum bars and resonators, a solid hardwood soundboard and resonating chamber for maximum resonance, high polished aluminum and steel fixtures, and a variable speed universal 85~264VAC motor for vibrato effect with an attractive blue anodized dial and push button LED on/off latch switch. Metal bumper feet allow the case to be stored in several positions. Nickel-plated draw latches and slide hinges secure the lid. The adjustable pedal and black nickel finish tapered legs with tilting swivel feet store in lid and easily assemble within minutes. Simply remove the legs and pedal from storage lid and turn to thread. Wheels on the side and bottom along with a stylish pull-out handle make transport swift and easy.
A custom K & K pick-up system and mini mixer is available as an optional upgrade add-on, as is a custom zipper slip cover to protect your case during transport.
Gigster is offered in two finishes: a beautiful Baltic birch natural wood finish weighing 110 pounds, or a vintage grigio blue tolex finish in a lightweight case weighing 75 lbs. Gigster dimensions are 39.5-inches long, 30.5-inches wide, and 9.1875-inches in depth. Each instrument is handcrafted and individually built in the USA.
