Gruv Gear, Orange County California-based designer and manufacturer of innovative music products and accessories, announces a distribution deal with Heartbeat Distributors Ltd., broadening its reach to the musician and DJ market in Canada.
Heartbeat Distributors, who primarily distributes a line of percussion products, now includes Gruv Gear's acclaimed line of utility carts and handtrucks that brings a fresh option for local dealers serving drummers, percussionists, guitarists, keyboard players, bass players, and other musicians. They also plan to carry Gruv Gear's unique accessories that are designed to help make musicians' lives easier through thoughtful design, solid construction, better ergonomics, and unmatched ease of use.
The two companies met several months ago at the 2011 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show in Anaheim, California. "Noel Walker (Founder of Heartbeat) and I sat down a couple times to discuss the opportunity," says Jay Baldemor, President of Gruv Gear. "He expressed their need for a high-quality utility cart product for their target market of drummers and percussionists, who typically carry more gear than other musicians. With over 15 years of experience in the Material Handling industry, Noel was impressed with the quality, construction, and versatility of the V-Cart Solo, Gruv Gear's flagship handtruck/trolley that transforms from a 2-wheel dolly to a 4-wheel flatbed cart to a 4-wheel tilted cart that can be loaded all the way up to 500 lbs. Useful add-on accessories such as the XL Frame Extension, Carpeted Puzzle Deck and Stage Wedge make the V-Cart Solo even more configurable to adapt to various gear loads and situations. And with the recent introduction of the MUVER 6 longbed six-wheeler "u-boat" flat cart, DJs and musicians in Canada will have the privilege of enjoying the benefits of Gruv Gear products already owned and used by world-class musicians in the USA and Europe.
