The sweat-free, back-saving solution for roadie-less musicians and DJs!
The Multi-Cart Rock N Roller R2 Micro Equipment Transporter 8-in-1 cart makes load-in at every gig a breeze! Load-ins and load-outs are undoubtedly the worst part of a gig. Either you're sweating before you play or dreading the number of trips you'll have to make after the gig through narrow corridors, cellars, and staircases, or the length of several football fields.
Instantly transforming into any of 8 configurations, The Rock N Roller R2 Micro Cart equipment transporter is a great back saver for guitarists, bassists, and horn players who don't need a large cart to safely move their gear. The R2 micro cart also doubles as an amp stand for stage or rehearsal. Rock N Roller makes the multi-cart with rugged steel construction, a durable finish, and stair-climber bars for convenience.
The Rock N Roller R2 Micro equipment cart uses specially designed 6" x 1-1/2" rear wheels that are extremely strong yet lightweight. Polyurethane tread bonded to a polymer hub rolls smooth & quiet. Unique modern design lets you stand out from the crowd.
The Multi-Cart R2 carries up to 350 lb. on a 2-rail frame that extends from 26-1/2" to 39" in length with 25"/20" (front/rear) foldable sides. It rolls on 6" x 1-1/2" rear wheels and 4" x 1" front swivel casters (w/o brakes). Weighing just 17 lb., the R2 carries huge loads but folds small to fit in airline overheads or large suitcases.

Yes, I have one. I got it from Musician's Friend. Like always, the shipping was fast.The cart? It's good enough, once you put it together and so long as you roll slow... The long lower shelf, multi-configuration and fold-up features are useful.Problems with this cart:When using in four-wheel flat-bed mode, you really need a board to keep stuff from falling through the gap between the struts, or slipping off entirely. I use a piece of plywood cut-to-size as a flat-bed and covered that board with a rug to prevent slippage. I had to make cut-outs in that board so the cart would still fold-up, and fastened the board with machine screws. Without those modifications, the flat-bed configuration is troublesome. Speakers and amps can easily fall off, especially when you go over barriers like curbs, entry-way weather strips or carpet edges. The wheels on the back are big enough, but the front wheels are small and catch easily. Roll over a stone in the parking lot with those tiny front wheels... the cart will screech to a halt, the load shifts and BANG!, ...your expensive gear smacks the cement.When you get this, there is some assembly required. The wheels must be attached with lock-nuts. That's good, BUT you must grip the free-spinning nut on the other side with a LARGE wrench while tightening the nut. Most people have a large wrench in their tool box. I was on the road when I got this and had no tools, so I had to go buy a special tool just to assemble it.That raised the price ( and thereby lowered the value.)What really got me was when I saw BETTER carts in my local home-store for LESS money. You can buy a welded steel dolly with LARGE flat-proof wheels now for $20 bucks. You can get a folding flat-bed cart with larger smooth-rolling wheels for 28 bucks. And those folding chinese carts with the extendable handles (which are really pretty good) only cost $22. At that same home-center I saw a deluxe 1000-pound capacity hand cart with professional wheels, a tilt-back tripod brace, padded rails, and winch-straps for just 11 dollars more than this thing costs.This cart is not bad; it's just WAY over-priced, a nuisance to assemble and requires modification to use safely. You can buy pre-assembled carts that are better for MUCH less locally. Musician's Friend has always given me good deals and service, which is why I didn't return this thing. By the time I paid shipping back, It would have been a wash. Musician's Friend is a MUSIC store, not a hardware store. Save the shipping cost and the hassle. Go look at your home-center for a cart. Menard's, Lowes and Home Depot...... ALL have BETTER carts for LESS cash.
I love this thing I now have two of them! Beats packing cases in one by one. These convert easily into any moving tool you could imagine. I have moved up and downstairs with little problem. Folded up they are ultra small, which is always a bonus. Minor modification I can "train" the two carts if needed to make two simple trips to pack in or pack out, all my gear! Highly recommend this item! *TIP* Also, you can easily and inexpensively, add steel casters.
I bought a Micro Cart when they first came out, many years ago, and mine is still going strong! I schlep my own gear every weekend, and nothing has ever broken on my cart. I also use it for my food delivery job every day, and it's perfect for the job. I also use it around the house, and it's always worked great for moving heavy Salt bags and furniture.
As good as the other Rock N Roller carts are, this one is a real disappointment. The wheels rub against the frame, making the cart very difficult to roll. A longer or relocated axle is needed. Don't waste your money on this cart, buy one of the larger ones.
This is the most incredible, ingenious cart I have ever used! It instantly changes shape and length to carry huge amounts of equipment but folds small. This has made my working life as a pro musician so much better. It's also really rugged and has withstood a ton of abuse. I have been using it for about 6 months and everybody in the band loves it too. The drummer has an R10 which is where I got the idea in the first place.
This 4-wheeled cart carries 350 pounds, and is about the size of a 4-space rack bag when it's collapsed for travel.Have Bass, Will Travel - either one or two 1x15 cabinets, depending on the gig. I drive my own car and move my own equipment. Sometimes it's a LONG way to the stage or orchestra pit! I wanted some kind of cart, but everything I saw in hardware stores was too big. The things that weren't too big, were too light-duty to haul serious gear on. (Designed for luggage, usually.)The pictures don't adequately convey how little space this takes up when it's collapsed for travel. I wish I'd known about it sooner!
This product is a beaut. I use it to cart around a Marshall 1/2 stack and have found it a breeze to use. Exeptional value for money
I bought one these carts and before 30 days had passed, the front wheel broke off. It came off while it was loaded and caused a lot of damage to some of my equipment. I took it back, and was going to get another one. But the only ones they had were on display, or should I say damaged. They all had front wheel damage. This product is truly not for use for a working musician.
I have had no probs with this cart. I've been using it for regular gigs for about 1.5 years now. The design is very functional. It's a real back saver to!!All of the other musicians that play at the places I do use these carts, as well. The price seems a little high, but it will still pay for itself over time.
