New Gear Review: VT-EXT Vertical Rack Strip By Furman

Panamax®/Furman® Vertex VT-EXT vertical rack strip is the perfect addition to your guitar rig rack or studio outboard rack. It takes up nearly no space making it perfect for tight, 8-space racks because it is made to mount vertically inside and right next to the rear panel AC sockets on your gear. The unit's vertical orientation allows the use of various length component power cords to save space and eliminate cord clutter.

It has eight outlets total with three that are far enough apart to accommodate those pesky wall-wart power supplies. The Vertex VT-EXT features mounting clips with plastic insulating spacers that help to prevent ground loops. The VT-EXT Vertical Rack Strip is designed for use with a Panamax/Furman power management unit such as the F1500 or the M1500. Together they provide clean, safe power and extend that system's advanced protection and filtration technologies to all your equipment.

Panamax®/Furman® Vertex VT-EXT vertical rack strip sells for $64.95 MSRP and also features a detachable 10-foot power cord that can easily be swapped out for a shorter cord if desired. Check out:
