I AM my roadie and with all of the variables in my business I need for everything that I use to be worry free and make the job easier; in and out and on to the next gig or rehearsal without hiccups. The V-Cart Solo helps navigate unpredictable Bay Area terrain with ease. I'm not into gimmicks - Jay and his team at Gruv Gear make products that WORK for the working musician.", "Gruv Gear Fret Wraps are not just for players with flashy technique. Not only do they help control excessive overtones but they help me to get a tight, focused sound whenever I'm going direct and free my hands for quick and sometimes unforgiving page turns in Musical Theater situations. Another example of Gruv Gear seeing and meeting a need.
