    so i just scored this badass tote bag at walmart. it's supposed to be for ladies to hold all their makeup and undies and stuff, but it's HEAVY black canvas and has tons of pockets so i bought it.

    so far it holds:

    12 DR Lo-rider G Strings
    8 D's
    8 A's
    4 E's
    3 B's

    Screwdrivers
    Warwick Wax
    String cutter
    Allen wrenches (the warwick ones, hopefully i'll find the little swiss army allen wrench dealy i just bought a week ago sometime soon)
    spare cord
    cloth
    earplugs
    picks (only seldomly used, dont hate me ;) )
    batteries
    string winder

    i know i should get some spare fuses for my amp
    what about a spare tube or two (it's just a 12AX7A right now, do those go often?)
    spare speakon connectors?

    I use a lap top case.

    Strings
    Leads
    Screwdrivers
    Sellotape
    WD40
    ECC83's if I am using a valve amp
     
  10. carry guitar gear too, i.e. strings. i would probably actually bring MY guitar, so if somebody breaks a string they can just switch.

    One of the little butane powered soldering pens is very useful.
