Creature Comforts

You spend a lot of time behind your console, and Hog is there to make it as comfortable as possible. Mount your external monitors or other accessories on arms to keep the desk clear. The controllable front work lights make it easy to read the script or setlist during the gig. Secure and charge your devices right in the front drawer. Your desk lights can even change from white to blue — and never misplace them again when you store them in the wrist rest.
