Re: What are the must haves for gigging?
I always have something extra in my wallet. So far it's only come in use a couple of times...
I cannot stress the importance of having duct tape in your bag. It holds together the British Army, it can hold anything long enough to get a set out. Although you have a wonderful new Yamaha kit to take out and Yamaha hardware is rock solid, the one gig you don't take the tape will be the gig where you forget something. In my case, it's usually cymbal arm sleeves that go missing during transport.
Anything to Declare, Mr. Wilde?
