What lives in your gig bag?
Besides my bass, strap, tuner and cable I like to keep gum and a book. It's nice to have fresh breath at a gig, as well as something to pass the time in the event that I'm sitting around waiting during sound check...
Anything 'extra' that you like to take along in your gig bag?
Just a bass. But a carry a separate gear box with more crap in it than I will ever need. I even carry extra guitar strings and picks and I don't use them. It weighs about 50 pounds.
Strings, string winder and wire cutters. That's pretty much it if I'm in town.
Fly dates? Laptop, iPod, headphones usually.
A family of possums...I call the big one "Bitey"
Two or more of everything I could ever need is outside in the trailer, so I usually just bring what I need inside. I have no gig bag, but an extra cable and some strings and what all reside in the compartment of my case.
Four cables, two straps, 2 sets of in ear monitors, tuner, pegwinder/ clippers, extra strings, ipad, tools, mints.
I'm not exactly sure. There are mice in the practice space and I'm always expecting to find one of them when I go looking for that phillips head screwdriver or whatever.
you ever try to wash a gig bag?
A rag, pencils. a couple of picks and a clip on tuner for back up
My GK MB200, 2 guitar cords and a tuner.
Extra strings, earplugs, usually an extra battery or two, something to right on and with, a few tools, Iburofen, and sometimes I find old set lists in there....
I keep a tuner, extra set of strings, a speed winder, Alan wrench, small screw driver, cable, strap, picks, soft felt cloth, pen.
I probably should add ear plugs and ibuprofen. I like that idea.
quite a bit now that I think about it. I got tired of being on the gig and wishing I had something, and bringing a huge toolbox would just be an extra something in my hand:
FEA Compressor + power adapter (I use it on every gig and most practices)
3 Cables (between 12' - 20'): 2 for the pedal and a backup
2 patch cables
Tiny music notepad
8 pack of Duracell 9V's that I got cheap the other day
tiny case of picks
hex wrench set
StewMac action gauge and 12" radius gauge
Clip-on tuner for the quick fixes
iphone Peterson adapter for the iStrobosoft app for precise tuning
Multi head Screwdriver
Sometimes a pack of strings
A pencil once I don't forget it at the gig
Wow didn't realise it was THAT much...used to have a Earwig headphone amp in there too but that stopped working recently. Did I mention the Sadowsky Portabag is awesome? :D
In my gig bag, two cables, a tuner, Comfort Strap and two basses (it's a double bag).
In my Bagalini, a whole buncha crap....drum machine, another tuner, Ipod with charger, extra batteries, phone charger, usb cable, whatever book I'm reading. Jeez, it really is a purse!:eek:
Partially eaten granola bar
Somebody's car keys (not mine)
Some beer caps
Empty 40 cal bullet shells
Music stand light
Adapter cords and plug adapters
Guitar cord & strap
Cleaning cloth for bass
Spare power cord
Spare speaker cord
Set of strings
Music, extra paper, pen
Tool pouch (hex keys, screwdriver, ruler, needle-nose pliers)
Seem like a lot, but it's really not.
NOTE: The only thing I haven't needed or used at a gig is the extra strings.
Some good ideas... I've heard of guys carrying stuff in case guitar players need extra strings, or a drum key since drummers are always needing them.
Spare new strings
Spare old strings
Spare instrument lead
Spare speaker cord, plus 1/4" to Speakon adaptor
Spare power cord
Spare XLR lead
I also bring a backup bass with its own set of spare strings.
So...basically everything, including the right gear to cover me if my amp blows or if I have to use a crappy amp belonging to someone else. If I think of anything else, I'll edit this post.
all of the above as well as xtra big clothes pegs to secure music to stand on windy outdoor gigs.oh and a power board.
