I am just wondering how many Basses does everbody Bring to a Gig or Rehersal ?
I only have one bass... . But when I get my five stringer in a month or so, I'll bring both to practice and gigs
Usually 2. 1 fretted, 1 fretless. Sometimes, I'll bring a second fretted.
Just one. There's really no point in bringing the DC, the Status does everything i want to do better. I'll probably bring the DC to gigs after I defret it though.
I never brought more than one.
But I've never really played anything but originals, and I never broke a string on a gig - I broke my last string more than 5 years ago.
1 bass for rehearsals, 2 basses to gigs- I always take a backup- usually the Hohner B2A cricket bat headless- it takes up hardly any space in the car.
My MTD Kingston and Yamaha BX-1. It's all I have for now.
I take my fretted and fretless with me to most rehearsals and gigs. I usually end up using both.
I bring 3 basses to gigs. A four string, A five string, And an eight string.
i bring two to gigs and one to practice.my warrior 5 and my geddy lee jazz.
and remember as always rock till ya drop !!!!
I only play one, but *always* bring a backup.
The only severe failure I've had was a broken nut (okay, laugh it up... ). But a backup is good to have even for minor failures, such as a broken string.
I've only had a handful of bass failures of any type, but none kept me down for long. A backup brings peace of mind. Ya never know when something bad might happen.
Oh... all I play is 5-string fretted, so I only bring one bass to rehearsal
It depends on the gig, I bring only one if it is only a one set (15song) gig but if I'm playing all night I bring two.
Two basses, each a different tuning. When I get a third bass this summer, it'll be three (two mains and a multi purpose backup),
edit- both gigs and practice.
two: 1 four string and one 6 string
All I play is 5ers, and I only bring one of them to rehearsal (either the Peavey or the Modulus, depends on my mood that day )
For gigs, I bring both. I usually play the Modulus for 2 sets and the Peavey for one (don't like to make it feel left out, ya know )
One for rehearsal, two for gigs. I just like having choices.
One for rehearsal, unless I'm trying to get used to a new bass or a new brand / gauge of strings.
Usually two for a gig. The second is purely back up.
2 for gigs.
I usually bring my steinberger as a backup. It's small enough that it's never in the way, sounds cool and of course looks nifty too.
My primary bass is always my Jazz V Deluxe, or my 75 reissue Jazz.
Two... the only 'critical' failures that I have had at gigs were times when I only brought a single bass. I believe in being prepared. I also carry an extra set of drumsticks. Last night was the second time that this little habit saved the gig!!
