|The Kaces brand was a big dream rolling around in Alan Poster's head when he acquired Ace Products back in 1981. What started as a strap company has now grown into a major supplier of gig bags, cases and accessories for musicians and DJs the world over.
Alan’s journey began as a guitar salesman back in the 70s, where he watched working musicians and roadies struggle with archaic plywood travel cases that were heavy, bulky and in constant need of repair. He knew there had to be a better way so he started looking into the new “space-age” poly materials that were lighter and stronger. He also worked with new emerging manufacturers who were on the leading edge of technology for the times.
To satisfy those musicians who still insisted on wood cases, Alan also explored new ways to make the old ply designs lighter yet stronger by applying what he learned from these factories that were making cases for the camera, sports and military industries.
The end result was the introduction of a high-quality yet very affordable line of fabric, polyfoam and hardshell wood cases… great products for the beginner, the student and the working musician… easy to carry yet tough enough to withstand the rigors of the road.
Today, Kaces offers over 200 models for band, orchestra, percussion, guitar, keyboard, DJ and pro-audio applications. They are also expanding into a new “Strukture” line of cables, music stands, mic stands, keyboard stands and other accessories for the working musician.
