I've come to expect excellent service from Sweetwater. It feels like I'm family (good family!) and I feel as if we're not just client/customer, but friends. Sweetwater is my only source for the best in recording hardware/ software/ accessories. In comparison shopping, they are the very best, plus industry-leading customer service. Why I would I go elsewhere?
The Gator Cases Story
Although Gator Cases offers products for AV, IT, and other technology markets, they began in the pro audio and music instrument field, where their cases have protected professional music gear since their debut in 2000. Located in Columbia City, Indiana, Gator has expanded their product offerings in recent years with the addition of the Gator Frameworks stand series, several waterproof cases, and new case designs such as the Journeyman series and the Pro-Go series.Guitar Cases
Gator Cases got their start with a series of molded plastic guitar cases, and they've stood as a leader in guitar protection ever since. Today, Gator offers an extremely wide range of protection for your guitar or bass. On the grab-and-go side, Gator's gig bags are extremely popular. In addition to their lightweight Economy line, Gator offers 4G gig bags with extra padding, and their semi-rigid Pro-Go series provides many of the advantages of a hardshell case, without the bulk or weight.
Lightweight Gator Polyfoam cases bridge the gap between gig bag and hardshell case perfectly, but if you're looking for full hardshell protection, you can't go wrong with the molded guitar cases that put Gator on the map. They also offer two kinds of wood cases, including their acclaimed Journeyman line. For top-level protection, you can also choose from ATA guitar cases, which are made from military-grade polyethylene or plywood and feature TSA-approved locks. And when nothing but the best protection will do, there's the Titan series, which features NK-7 resin, Powerclaw latches, and UltraGuard waterproof seals.Other Instrument Cases
A full line of keyboard cases utilizes many of the same innovations that make Gator guitar cases so popular. There are lightweight gig bags, Pro-Go semi-rigid bags, lightweight Polyfoam keyboard cases, and full ATA polyethylene and plywood cases to choose from, all of which offer the same level of protection, whether the instrument is a guitar or a keyboard. On top of that, Gator has offered special protection for drums and percussion instruments since 2008, when they brought another Fort Wayne company, Protechtor Percussion, into the fold. Whether you choose their standard gig bags to make transporting your kit easy or their elite hard cases for maximum protection, you'll find the carrying convenience and protection you need.DJ Cases
While Gator makes some of the finest DJ gear cases out there, they also apply the same build concepts and technologies to their recording gear cases and portable equipment racks. If you're a DJ, then you'll find top-level protection for your DJ controller, mixer, turntables, or any other gear you take from gig to gig.Equipment Bags and Rack Cases
You don't have to be a DJ to make the most of the bright orange lining of Gator's G-Club bags, which provide a high-contrast background to make finding gear easy in dimly lit environments. There are hardshell options ranging from molded ATA cases to waterproof polymer and road-ready plywood options for all your gear. Gator also offers a full range of 19" equipment racks, from lightweight nylon soft cases to touring racks with shock-resistant internal suspension. Gator's lightweight Standard series and roto-molded Pro series racks are among the most popular choices in the world for mobile sound production.Frameworks Stands
Launched in early 2013, Gator Frameworks introduced a new line of stands and support hardware for studio and live production. You can easily recognize a Gator Frameworks stand by its robust design, with features such as thick steel tubing, tough handles, and adjustment mechanisms that provide simple yet extremely stable operation. These products include microphone stands, guitar stands, speaker stands, and many other accessories such as mobile device and tablet holders, portable piano benches, and more.
