Say Hello to the Boombotix Artists Series

 SketOne, Uberpup, and DGPH put a graphic assault on the Boombot speaker

Boombots

This winter we are excited to be launching a new incarnation of Boombots: the Artist Series. By teaming up with a group of designers from around the globe, the Artist Series has given a brand new look to ultraportable speakers. UberPup (London) incorporated graphic mayhem to her piece to exemplify her propensity towards mass chaos. DGPH (Argentina) rolled out an entire set of post-modern abstract work in three amazing palettes. Sket One (Los Angeles) delivered a pad print design called Mr. Grimey that completely put a new face on wireless audio. For a product that originated from urban vinyl toy design, the Artist Series salutes the design roots of the product.

The Artist Series Boombots come in Bluetooth enabled versions (UberPup and Sket One designs) and wired models.  Housed in ruggedized ABS shells and featuring an integrated clip, Boombots allow your music to be taken with you, anytime, anywhere.  Boombots include medical-grade rechargeable batteries, dynamic frequency response, and a no-matter-what one-year warranty.  The Bluetooth models retail for $79.99 and wired models for $54.99.  The Artist Series is available through boombotix.com and select retailers.

A portion of all sales will go towards the hungry artists.  Help us feed them.

A look into the Boombotix past…

It seems like so long ago, but it was only in the Summer of 2008 when Dennis Quijano released his first vinyl toy, the Skully, under the brand Urban Warfair. Soon thereafter, the founder and eventual CEO of Boombotix, Lief Storer (an avid vinyl toy collector at the time) came across the piece and purchased a few. Months later, after successfully blowing out his ACL while skiing at Northstar, Lief was confined to his cubicle and kept the Skully there to ward off evil spells. As VinylPulse magazine quoted about the toy, “The large blank eye-socket area makes the figure interesting DIY wise,” and that led to the inception of something much, much more than a toy.

Custom SB1s for ASR

portable speaker

On August 13th-15th, Team SkullyBoom will be making our way down to the ASR tradeshow.  This is really our first “big” tradeshow, so we’re super excited to showcase the SB1 in front of some national media.

CEO, Lief Storer commented, “It’s important for everyone in the surf/skate/snow industry to see not only our roots in action sports, but also our background in the world of urban art.”

For the show, we’ve prepared several custom SB1s just to show off the platforms highly customizable nature.  If you are interested in getting your SB1 showcased, the company has made room for three artists submissions, but you better hurry because the show is coming up fast.  Send pictures of your custom SB1 to info@skullyboom.com for consideration.
