All the time on TB and in Harmony Central reviews I see this maxim repeated: NEVER gig without a backup! Obviously I understand the point of this, and agree with it in theory. But it's simply not within my means to have a backup for everything. I can only afford one bass that will do what I need, I can only afford one preamp and poweramp, etc. Also, even if I could afford a double of everything, it would be absolutely ridiculous to bring an extra rack, extra cabs, and so forth just in case the first of something went out. So my question is this: do you guys really have a backup for everything? Do you own and schlep 2 of everything you own? Is it common for gigging bands to do this?
