A gigging musicians best friend.
If you’ve ever had the (dis)pleasure of having to move a full drum kit from your jam room, to your bandmates’ sedan, then on to the venue (and the backstage labyrinth of loading bays, side doors and narrow hallways that lie between you and your natural habitat-the stage), then you’ve probably found yourself occasionally daydreaming about Roadies.

Nothing to be embarrassed about. Perfectly normal. Especially considering the backbreaking logistics and immense physical toll that comes with even the most perfunctory of pub gigs. It’s no surprise that for most gigging musicians (but especially for drummers, who undoubtedly have it the worst), the dream of having actual road crew-employees who specialise in the bump-in/bump procedure-is the kind of practical luxury that most would probably trade the Bass player for.
Suffice to say, bass players can now breathe a little easier thanks to the the awesome new Multi-cart by American cargo experts, Rock-n-Roller-a clever little product designed to alleviate some of the stresses of the itinerant drummer, touring muso, mobile DJ or any musical undertaking requiring load in/load out, and the dreaded carting of gear.
Rock-N-Roller are award winning designers of small scale porter solutions and transformable utility carts, with an eye clearly on the music and events industries. They are the leading innovator and manufacturer in the field, combining flexible design with road-ready efficiency and durability as well as a bunch of handy, muso-adjacent features that (quite literally) take the weight off your shoulders.
Portability and functionality are at the forefront of the Rock-n-Roller design brief and it shows, with eight different shapes you can create by folding and expanding different parts of the cart. Boasting an ant like ability to support up to 226kg from its diminutive 9kg frame, the Rock-n-Roller Multi-Cart is sure to impress in its ability of overdeliver in the strength department. Honestly, you’ll have a hard time getting your head around how such a lightweight, foldable unit is performing this kind of trickery. With ease, the Rock-n-Roller can carry a band’s worth of gear, including the full drum kit.
