Default Post your haul load Tetris pictures

Something light hearted for a change :)

Here's my ride fully loaded to the max for a stripped down gig (full on gigs - I tow a box trailer). Audi A6 estate (station wagon)

6 piece kit + rack + hardware + cymbals, all in rigid cases. Drum rug. 3K of PA tops + stands + monitors + flight cased desk + video gear + recording gear + associated cables + lighting + wife (not hard cased).

As a travelling dad coming back from a two-week roadtrip, I admire your remarkable work.

That looks like my trunk the evening before leaving while everything is optimally packed and stacked, before the early morning departure time when everyone asks for their video games, teddybear or handbag in the far-bottom cases, and the additional paddles and bodyboards suddenly need to be added.

I am jealous.

So do you have a diagram of how each piece goes in to make it quicker to load?

What wood type is the kit? Do you always got the same wood type?

Wish I had taken pictures, I used to fit 2 kicks, 4 rack toms, 1 floor tom, snare, rack, all other hardware, cymbals, and a 6x9 carpet into a 2002 Civic hatchback. There was barely any room for me, but dammit I could get the whole kit in there.

My Midtown kit load out would be a joke. It might all fit in my wife's purse.

Well, a diagram would be typical behaviour for me, but I've done this so many times (even though stripped down gigs represent say 1 in 10 gigs), it's almost a muscle memory thing. This is also my 3rd A6 in a row, so very used to what's possible.

Walnut - other wood species are far more difficult to load ;)

My wife's purse is easily double the capacity of my ride, & the primary reason for me owning a 2 ton box trailer ;)

I feel your pain - way more challenging than gig Tetris :)

You have a point - must fix that.

JK obviously. I may need to take the better half on a channel cruise.

Hmmm - inconsistent dynamic - always an unfathomable element - can change frequently within the same journey - variable cost level - prone to multiple triggering ;)

I miss gig tetris, I had a Mega Drive as a kid so I was always more of a columns guy anyway ;)

I bought an ex-police car last year which is an estate aka The Blues-Mobile and then in my infinite wisdom got the midtown, and got lightweight hardware as well. Feel like I cheated myself, loading in/out is too easy.

The best I ever saw was a bassist in a pub rock band I was in years back that a Reliant Robin (he only had a bike license), this thing was like the tardis, he got the PA plus his bass cab and bass in it. He's still got it and goes all over the country in it. We used to do loads of bike rallies and he won prizes for rocking up in this thing. I sat in it once and sh*t myself couldn't have driven it!

For anyone who's not from the UK, a Reliant Robin is a 3 wheeled death trap that you can drive on a car or bike license, the top speed depends on how strong the wind is, how good the sail rigging is and how fit the hamster in the wheel under the bonnet is.

5 piece drum set AND PA system.

Toyota Matrix.

The next week, I was able to get everything in there plus monitors and subs (I'm not lying). Needless to say it was absolutely bulging.

No pictures, but I used to regularly pack a 5 piece kit, monitor wedge, rug and a trolley in my Morris Minor. People were always amazed when they saw how much gear came out of one small car.

Back in the old days i was a master at the odd shaped, soft cased jazz tour tetris-in-a-station-wagon. Drumset, up right bass, 3 dudes and their bags. Had an instinct for it and for still allowing to be able to see out the rear view mirror.

Now with hard rectangular cases and a crapload of cabinets and amp heads on rock tours/shows, ive got absolutely zero mojo. Luckily our guitarist has a good eye for that...
