BROOKLYN, NY — February 24, 2020 – Gig Gear LLC — manufacturer of accessories designed for musicians, roadies, AV techs, film grips, and live event and entertainment production professionals — has named Pro Audio-Technik its exclusive distributor in Germany and Austria, effective immediately.
Headquartered in Gelnhausen, Germany, just outside of Frankfurt, Pro Audio-Technik offers distribution of top pro-audio and DJ equipment manufacturers across Germany and Austria.
This new distribution deal is an important step in the growth of Gig Gear’s footprint in Western Europe.
“As we continue to extend our reach into new markets, Gig Gear is looking for key distribution partners that have portfolios which complement our product range. Pro Audio-Technik is one of these key partners,” said Danny Shatzkes, founder of Gig Gear. “Pro Audio-Technik has a long history of successfully representing some of the top brands in the pro-audio game, and we are excited to welcome them to the Gig Gear family.”
“During our trip to NAMM 2020, we met with Gig Gear and immediately realized that their products make a perfect fit for our customer base,” said Lukas Neubauer, managing director of Pro Audio-Technik. “Everyone in our industry needs to carry equipment that keeps them safe and helps make their job easier. After seeing Gig Gloves first-hand, the ability to open the fingertips without removing the gloves to work with touchscreens is very useful. We think these will be an important addition to our market.”
Pro Audio-Technik will distribute the entire line of Gig Gear products which is comprised of its award-winning Gig Gloves — heavy-duty work gloves that protect the hands of users through strong nylon threading and TPR molding — as well as its Two Hand Touch iPad harness which makes remote mixing of a room easier than ever.
Founded in 2014, Gig Gear LLC was launched by Danny Shatzkes with the intent to provide music and audio professionals with novel and innovative products to make their jobs safer, easier, more efficient and more fun.
