How It Works

You are here


The anti-slip properties of the special i-Skin compound are the result of meticulous testing. A little physics explains why a guitar on a GigPad is reliably stable:



When a guitar is placed on a GigPad, it’s bottom (the heaviest part of most guitars) and centre of gravity are ‘rock bottom’. Things with a low centre of gravity do not fall easily.


The weight of a guitar on a GigPad, combined with gravity, creates friction.


When a guitar is leaned at a sufficient distance (usually 10-14″) against a speaker cabinet or other vertical surface, torque is created at the point of contact


Like a ladder leaning against a vertical wall:  gravity, friction and torque combine to achieve lateral stability.
