EurekaSound have come up with a useful device for musicians to place rackmount effects at their feet, instead of offstage, or precariously on an amp. The product is called RackLegs ($40) and connects to the rear rack rails of a standard 2U rack case. The legs are made from sturdy but light 5mm steel, attach with thumbscrews, and angle the rack case by a few degrees for easy viewing. They are painted black for a low profile and have rubber end caps for greater floor grip.
If you want the same functionality at home, and don’t need a solid flight case, EurekaSound also make RackArms. These are a less expensive alternative to a case and still allow you to connect the RackLegs for a better viewing angle. You can buy RackArms and RackLegs together for $80, before taxes. International shipping costs an addtional $20 on any orders.
