A better sidecar option is finally here! Introducing the Comrade "studio", a one of a kind 14u sidecar cabinet with the versatility to grow with the needs of your studio. NO assembly required, this unit ships assembled** with FREE shipping. This design is ALSO available in a media rack enclosure as a storage/entertainment cabinet.

Housed in a beautiful solid Spruce enclosure (stained, or natural options), the Comrade aims to maximize its use of space & organization by providing many configurable options. From a full 14u audio rack, to a hybrid setup splitting the use of audio racks & shelving (or even a version with no audio racks) this piece was designed with real world studio use in mind. The enclosures feature an angled upper 6u housing which allows for a more enjoyable ergonomic experience, and a vertical 8u section beneath . Additionally the sides of the cabinet include routed ƒ-holes which while aesthetically unique and pleasing, also allow for cross ventilation inside of the housing.


The top surface has a unique tool-less (patent pending) locking system machined into it, which allows multiple products to be used securely with the Comrade as pictured. All of Munstre's desktop audio racks (2u-8u) can be easily stacked on top and locked into position with 4 locking "keys" without worrying about knocking the upper units off. So if you have previously purchased a desktop rack, and are looking to expand and stack your units, this product is the perfect fit. Additionally there is an angled worktop surface available now,  and Munstre will soon expand the extension options further with storage shelves, a eurorack, and more.

If shelving is desired, the interior walls offer 10 potential shelf positions. These are positioned to work in conjunction with the rack rails, as well as alongside installed rack gear (in select positions) to get the best of both options. The shelves are held in place with 6 heavy duty pins, which will grab the shelf for a very sturdy and secure storage fit. 

The cross bar at the middle of the cabinet provides stability for the exterior walls, and includes a routed tray for storing those little objects that hang around your studio (guitar picks, cable adapters, pens & pencils etc.. ) while creating a separated space for the upper angled 6u rack positions from the bottom 8u vertical rack positions. This routed groove is also sized to seat a vinyl 12" record.

The interior walls have pre-routed locations to place cable management brackets, allowing the user to choose the best placement for each bracket (Left side/Right side/Upper/Lower). Mounting brackets are included, along with hook & loop style fasteners for quick and easy cable gathering to keep your rack setup as neat as possible. 

Finally, the base of the the Comrade includes 3" heavy duty locking casters, the locks are easily clicked in & out of the locked position and can hold up to 750lbs.
