I have been gigging a good part of 40 years now and one thing I learned is to have a backup of everything. Can't say I have had a ton of catastrophic failures, but I'm ready when they do happen. I was just going through my stuff and cataloging it for insurance purposes and started thinking about the people I know, who don't use a backup of anything other than strings and cables. I also run sound and do DJ work and I have to make sure I am covered in case something bad happens. When I do guitar gigs I bring 3 with me. A hardtail with P-90's, a FR loaded with HB's, and a Fat Strat. My pedal rig is basically my backup because I can easily go direct with it but I still bring a small extra amp modeler with me. Honestly not bragging. It took me years to get to this point. What I am wondering though is how people gig without backups? I'd be sweating bullets all night just waiting for Murphy's Law to come n get me. Do you bring backups to gigs? if so what is your backup solutions? I love discussing this stuff.
