Why Crowdfund?

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way for individuals or companies to raise money by asking many individuals to contribute funds. Most crowdfunding takes places on the internet through Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Contributions start for as little $1 and go up from there.

Indiegogo-LogoWhy is Rockready crowdfunding the Volo gig bag?

We want to bring our idea for the perfect gig bag to the market and connect with other guitar players that have a need for a better gig bag.

What do you gain by contributing?

You get a fantastic, one-time only price as low as $99 for a gig bag that will protect your guitar and serve you well for many years. After our crowdfunding concludes, the price of our gig bag rises to $159. So don’t miss out on this opportunity. If you haven’t checked out our campaign, click here to see it.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the internet levels the field and gives small companies, like us, the opportunity to bring our ideas to the market place. Now, with crowdfunding, our customers have a chance to participate in the process. Your contributions tell us if we’re on track – if we’re meeting a need of yours – and have developed an idea that will be a viable product.

LKR_ClrWe also look at Crowdfunding as a way to develop a community of people that share common interests : great gear with a social conscience. You may have already know that we’re giving 5% percent of the proceeds from our Crowdfunding to Little Kids Rock. When we reach our goal, Little Kids Rock can get 25 kids a music education for a whole year! This is part of our Rockready mission statement. Once the crowdfunding is complete we will continue to give back to the music community.

The Future

We’re planning more guitar accessories and will continue to use crowdfunding to gauge interest, raise money, and give our Rockready supporters the first opportunities to participate and get the best deals on new gear.

We look forward to your questions and comments. If you have any specific concerns post your comments here or email us.

Rockready Releases Volo gig bag for Guitarists

Rockready designed the Volo gig bag to be tour ready; it’s also the perfect solution for everyday gigs and rehearsals. The Volo gig bag protects your guitar and helps you organize all your gig and rehearsal items with intelligently designed form factor pockets.

Rockready-Volo-Mini-attachedThe Volo gig bag is rugged, durable, and comfortable. It comes equipped with a hard-wearing shell, impact resistant high-density padding, integrated ABS panels, and a neck support to protect against drops and falls. The design team added discreet and easy to reach pockets for your phone and keys and high quality locking zips. To make those long walks around town or to the gate more comfortable they added padded shoulder straps and a trekking style chest clip. And they know from experience that lots of your travels will be at night, so they’ve designed a very stylish reflective piping that adds assurance for night-time safety.



There’s also the Mini Volo bag which detaches easily from Volo with four hook and loop attachment points. The padded shoulder strap adjusts so you can carry it over either shoulder. It features a padded pocket to carry a tablet so you don’t need to worry about scratching the screen. It’s also roomy enough to fit a micro pedal board. Carry all your essentials to the stage or around town in the Mini.

“Rockready is the result of combining our passion for music, great gear, and our feeling that we can do something positive for the music community,” says Ed Matthiack, President of Rockready. Rockready is donating 5% of sales to organizations that benefit the music community. Rockready is working with Little Kids Rock, a great organization that has helped over 400,000 children in the US get a musical education. Rockready plans to have an artist board that will help guide the mission. “That’s been the plan from the start with Rockready, continues Ed Matthiack, “offering tour ready gear, outstanding value, and helping the music community.”

The Rockready Volo gig bag is available for guitar and bass.
