This week’s Free Shirt Wednesday post is brought to you buy Rock Cr8. I was pretty excited to get this shirt in the mail the other day. Scott Johnson, owner/operator of Rock Cr8 has been an EffectsBay friend for a long time now, and he definitely has a great product to offer the gear heads out there.
Early on in my guitar playing days, I use to lug around a milk crate – wadded up my cables and throw my pedals in there. It usually was over flowing and over all was a mess. I “upgraded” to some brief cases, which did improve things, but I’m still lugging a lot of pieces. With the Rock Cr8, Scott has remedied a few things here. The Rock Cr8 does a few things. First off it’s a larger container, that is Tolexed (39 styles of Tolex available) with casters. You can get a lot of misc stuff in there (additional cables, pedals, straps, picks, etc). It has a built in pedal board that is removable from the Cr8. Due to the size, it would work great for a amp stand. There is also a light within the Cr8 for seeing during low light.
Here are the specifications of the Rock Cr8:
Standard dimensions:Â 26.5″ Length, 13″ Depth, 15″ Height.Â Custom sizes available
Hinges:Â 18″ Nickel Piano Hinge or Detachable chrome butterfly hinges
Handles:Â Fender or Vox style handles standard, many others available.
Fender Style removable Casters and sockets.Feet:Â 4 (fender style) Chrome Glides, (4 extra with detachable hinges)
Corners:Â 6 Chrome Corner protectors
Tolex, your choice of many options, some require upcharges.
Original Velcro brand loop 1000, with industrial strength #119 adhesive, on pedalboard, and inside RockCr8
40+ Stainless Steel Screws
Durable frame (combination of MDF and Poplar in the door and hinge areas.)

Now, if you want to be featured on Free Shirt Wednesday.. itâ€™s really quite simple. Send me a shirt, if itâ€™s music related (ie: guitar builder, band, pedal builder, guitar shop, recording studio, etc) Iâ€™ll dedicate a blog post about your biz, band, etc. Iâ€™ll take a photo with my aging, slightly pudgy mug and post it. Great simple, cheap form of advertising. Still interested? Then check this page for more info
