The KC-15 Open Frame Synth Cart

This week we're taking a closer look at the KC-15, our open frame synth cart.

Per our product list, the KC-15 is described as:

39" H x 68" W x 24" D, 1.5" Square Steel Tubing, Texture Black Powder Coat, 33” Keyboard Shelf Height, Shock-Absorbing Black Polyethylene Keyboard Shelf, Open Frame Design with Full Length Lower Shelf, 8" Flat-Free Swivel Locking Casters (4)

Ok... but like... what does that mean?!

First of all, the KC-15 looks like this:

Arguably, it's our most versatile cart. While it was designed as a cut-and-dry open synth cart made for ... wait for it ... a synth, it's actually been utilized in countless ways by our customers.

The KC-15 has a foamed 57" x 18" keyboard shelf that sits 33 inches from the ground. Additionally, the cart is constructed out of 1.5 inch square tubing.

That sounds boring and unimportant until you realize that it means you can clamp accessory trays and gadgets to literally anywhere.

Need a pair of cymbals on your left for a big front ensemble crash in the closing tune? We've got you covered.

Planning on running a sampler or multi-pad? The KC-15's got the hook-up with a length-running accessory rail. (Check out our tray tables!) The handles on both sides of the cart are 1.5" round tubing, just FYI.

The bottom shelf can be used for a variety of things, but might we suggest a monitor?

While the KC-15 is one of our simpler carts, it's also a marvelously adaptable cart. Did we leave anything out? Are you ready to place an order right now?! (If so head on over to our DEALERS page!)

Introducing the Product Press Room

Here at Pageantry Innovations we're all about finding solutions to problems. When we notice something isn't quite right, we immediately devise a plan to fix it. Recently we noticed we have a pretty big problem.

We make a useful, sturdy, quality product but unless you buy something or visit a trade show, it's hard for us to demonstrate and educate you about our carts and racks.

Solution? The Product Press Room.

The Product Press Room is a weekly post aimed at anyone and everyone buying, selling, or looking into our carts & racks. Here we will detail the ins and outs of each cart, as well as how to set-up and utilize your carts. Additionally, from time to time we will share firsthand information on new products or features available from Pageantry Innovations. It really is our own global press room and we're giving you a valuable pass.

We hope you will find this series informational as well as interesting- it will essentially become the guidebook to all things Pageantry Innovations.

Join us next week as we dive headfirst into our standard cart designs! Additionally, we will release a monthly video with tips, tricks, and advice on maximizing the use of your Pageantry Innovations gear!

See you next week!
