    (Besides the bass, of course).

    Let's see...

    - (1) Monster Cable
    - (1) wide leather padded strap
    - (1) Wipedown cloth
    - (1) Pre-treated (with string cleaner) cloth
    - (2) 1/4-to-1/4 cables (one very short, the other longer depending on whether my SansAmp goes on the floor or the top of my amp)
    - A couple of expired backstage passes
    - A show or two's worth of old setlists
    - (1) SansAmp BDDI
    - (1) Leatherman multipurpose tool
    - (1) set of used bass strings (spares, though I've never broken a string in 28 years)
    - (1) 9-volt battery
    - (1) heavy guage speaker cable
    - (2) power cords for amp (primary and backup)

    That's about everything I'm carrying these days. No wonder that case is so dang heavy...
  2. Probably too much stuff, but I carry double cables (speaker, instrument, mic), 2 mics, tuner, strings, a small repair kit. Also carry a couple of rhythm noisemakers; a 'shaker' can, and an insturment I picked up in the Dominican Republic that looks like a cheese grater that you play with a drumstick. I've got it in a gym bag.
    Sanamp BDDI (from a fellow TB'er) is on the way! Should arrive today or tomorrow.
    First time I've ever put anything between me and the amp.

    My friend, you are a true team player. Or a control freak with tendencies toward enabling... take your pick. :D

    If you are talking about my bass cases, nothing. If you are refering to the "case" I take to shows with my other junk in it, everything! I take extra batteries, Advil, earplugs, cables, straps, towels, polish, contact cleaner, tuners, allen wrenches, other tools, several pads and pens, tons of strings (both bass and guitar...and I don't play guitar), sugarless gum, extra mics (a 57 AND a58)...if you can think of it (for a gig) I've got it!

    I meant the bass case... but any will do, I guess.

    My bass case holds enough that I've been able to get by without lugging an extra bag or box for cables, cords, etc. And I travel light (no pedals other than the SansAmp). But it does make for a heavy-ass case, especially with the 78 P inside. It's always fun to see guitarists pick that thing up.
