    So, before the actual question, a bit of background info for those who don't know. Scrim Banners are the banners you sometimes see bands place in front of their amps on stage, to create an image on either side. Do I know if this is the proper term? Nope. We've been calling them Stage Scrims cause they sit with us on stage, and the material is called 'Scrim' I believe.

    Basically, I chucked all my effects pedals out of my chain, straight bass. I kept the tuning pedal because I saw it being my only viable option to keep in tune, but I would like a rack tuner instead, so I don't have to carry around one pedal and two extra cables to get it in the chain.

    Anyone feel my pain? What did you do?

    When I re-did my rack rig from the 90's last year, I kept my rack tuner. However, the main reason is that I am getting old and cannot really see those pedal tuners. I can read my rack tuner which is the old LED style without glasses even in low light conditions.
    However, in your case, it sounds like your band is set on these scrim screens in front of your rig. If that's the case, I don't see how you're going to make a rack tuner work with that if the scrim screen is as tall or taller than your rig.
