May 31, 2012Music Background:
Over 40 years as a Sound Supervisor/Audio Director, mostly live and on location.
Lightweight Lifesaver With A UniqueThe one "stand alone" unit of my nine Line 6 XD-V receivers permanently occupies its highly protective "wash and wear" (or, more accurately, "sponge down and wear") GM-1WEVA.
It's become part of a "grab and go" kit, as this bag accommodates the receiver's "companion" THH12 handheld, along with a mic clip, "foamy" urethane windgag, "Koala" ("furry") windsock, USB adapter cable and a short XL connecting cable.
The XD-V's are the deepest half-rack receivers I've encountered, so mine uses the bag's full length, with its antennae deploying perfectly from behind the sturdy zipper that secures the rear one of Gator's two unique end caps.
I'd be surprised if there was a half-rack system that could NOT be easily deployed while housed in this rugged little beauty, given that most shorter receivers (such as Audio-Technica, Sennheiser and Shure) either have front panel antennae, (that would extend forward of the front end cap's zipper, ...the opposite of my Line 6) ...or rear-mounted antennae for which Gator have provided a pair of zippered access slots at TWO different depths from the front.
This means there's a total of FOUR "fold out" spots for chassis-mounted whip antennae.
The Party Trick ?
When folded back (as far as they'll go) under the receiver, the end caps form a surprisingly stable "stand" riser that's perfect for operational elevation above a table or rack.
I have no hesitation in unequivocally recommending this ergonomic and roadworthy mini-masterpiece.
