Default Re: What are the must haves for gigging?

Thanks for the good advice everyone! Like Harry said, I'm sure I'll eventually figure out what I feel comfortable having for myself, I will probably take my extra snare just in case but honestly can't see replacing a head during a gig...don't think I'm that competent at this point. If I did, it sure wouldn't sound like crap anyways because I'd never get it tuned to sound well enough. However there were some basic things I never thought of such as the drum key (duh!).

Next week we practice at one of other girls houses so I can start getting a sense of what tearing down the kit and putting it back up will be like. I have a rug I plan on using on which I will mark placement of the drums with tape before then so I hope that will help somewhat. At least I have a couple of months to get it all together!

Talk about feeling like a noob all over again! Lol
