FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Gig Gear LLC and Media Integration Partner for Gig Gloves Distribution in Japan

Gig Gloves will be made available across the Japanese marketplace with distribution rights acquired by premier MI and Pro Audio distributor

Anaheim, CA – January 19, 2017 - Brooklyn, NY based manufacturer Gig Gear LLC and Tokyo based distributor Media Integration have announced that effective immediately, Media Integration will be the distributor of Gig Gloves for the nation of Japan. Prior to this announcement Gig Gloves were only available internationally via direct consumer purchase from Gig Gear’s website and a third party international carrier. Now, the entire line of Gig Gloves will be available to Media Integrations vast dealer network throughout Japan.

“Media Integration is thrilled to begin distributing Gig Gear’s innovative products. They solve problems that many professionals who work in SR, system installation and other related industries experience every day,” said Satoshi Yamaguchi, General Manager of Media Integration. “Gig Gear products might look very different from the current line of products Media Integration carries, but we think they suit our philosophy of introducing products that solve daily problems of pro audio professionals and help provide even better results from their work. We hope Japanese customers will enjoy the distinct advantages that Gig Gloves provide.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Gig Gear’s entire range of Gig Gloves represented by Media Integration in Japan,” said Daniel Shatzkes, founder and principal of Gig Gear LLC. “Our expansion into international markets took a huge leap forward in the second half of 2016 and with distribution in Japan now being handled by Media Integration it continues to establish our brand as an industry standard worldwide. We can’t wait to watch Media Integration represent the line and grow the dealer base and consumer market for Gig Gloves in Japan.”

Dealers and consumers in Japan should stay tuned to Media Integration’s website and social media channels to be updated on availability and stock. 


Gig Gear LLC, founded in the summer of 2014, was launched by Daniel Shatzkes with the intent of providing production professionals with novel and innovative products to make their jobs easier, safer, more efficient and more fun.
