Gig Bag Essentials For Double Bassists

Essential Accessories for Gigging Bassists

In this video lesson I’m going to open up my gig bag, bass and bow cases to show you what I need to make it through the gig. Anything can happen on stage and you need to be prepared to deal with issues, so being prepared by carrying the right equipment is essential. There are a lot of little things I take with me that can have a big impact, especially if I don’t have them!

Check out this video for my full list of bass accessories and please join the conversation to share your gig bag essentials in the comments section below.

In this lesson I cover the accessories you need, but in case you are interested here’s a run down of my current bass rig:

Upright Bass: German trade bass.
Double Bass Strings: Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Weich.
Double Bass Pickup: Fishman Full Circle.
