Less is more. Unless you’re talking about gear. We all try to pare down our rig as much as possible for touring, but sometimes you just need… more. More cables. Effects. A hard drive. Maybe even a spare t-shirt or two. That’s why we’ve created The Tick™ 2.0 – to accommodate those extras. The beauty of it? Aside from the fact you won’t be overstuffing your guitar cases, you won’t have to bring extra carry-on. The Tick is designed to become one with your MONO case, counting as one piece of luggage too. Easy.
With its integrated design, the Tick doesn’t get in the way of accessing your guitar or bass – so you won’t need to remove it from the case. If you do want to remove it, it’ll detach in seconds. And once your guitar’s out, the Tick becomes your workstation. Unzip the front panel of the Tick and your cables, strings and tools are right there for pre-show tune-ups.
The Tick™ attaches quickly and securely to any Tick-ready MONO guitar case, and detaches just as easily. It’s as simple as opening the military strength straps at the top and the back of the Tick, and feeding them through your case’s powder-coated steel D-rings. This creates a 3 point connection, for extra secure attachment. All M80 guitar and bass cases are now shipped Tick-ready (some older cases may not be – please contact support if you have questions about the Tick-compatibility of your MONO case).
BUILT TO LAST
We build our cases to military specs, using only materials with extreme resistance to abrasion and the elements. Steel-riveted handles, high-density padding and a water-resistant shell ensures a safe journey through harsh conditions.
By now you’d have guessed that the Tick is made with a focus on quality, so we use YKK zips for extra reliability. They’ve also been engineered with a thread hole for locks – to help keep your gear nice and safe. And our material is animal free.
DIMENSIONS & FITTING
The Tick™ is sized to fit small pedalboards, including the Nano by Pedaltrain™. But really, you can fit any combination of things – whether it’s pedals, personal items, or your cables and headphones (secured by the cable strap). There’s also a mesh pocket inside for those bits and pieces you want to keep safe and visible. And of course, there’s dedicated space for those all-important tools that can help you avert disaster. These measurements represent the inner capacity of the Tick. If you are unsure about the fit for a particular pedal, amp, etc, it’s best to make sure it doesn’t exceed any of the maximum dimensions shown here.
