Rucksack-able

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just in 2 mins at the moment - as usual.

I'm considering doing a few gigs using the train, rather than driving.

I've come up with a good solution for amp and bass and cables, but that leaves me with cab.

Now, ideally I'd be looking for a rucksack/bag so I could carry my cab on my back.

My current cab is a 4x10, but it's very compact and light (20kg).

So, are there any rucksacks out there capable of fitting in a cab?

If not, I'll probably be looking at a compact 2x10 or 1x15.

Either way, whatever cab I take itd have to go on my back. Bass case in one hand, train fare in the other!

A friend of mine plays in all over London and takes his markbass 2x10 on a small lightweight sack barrow with his amp strapped on top with a cover,    Just an idea 🙂

The PA cab isn't a bad idea at all. I remember bow you can get bags for them with straps on. Plus I could get away with a lightweight passive cab too.

Or Barefaced One10 in a cajon bag.

Exactly this. Gig bag with the Genz-Benz head and all leads in the pocket, Barefaced One10, all music charst on an iPad with its specific stand = gig ready bassist. I did a jazz trio gig at Xmas using exactly that set-up.

A powered PA cab could  mean no amp  to worry about. Just a preamp of some kind and a couple of leads and you're good to go.

I've got 2 small amps, so it means I've got backup. That's one of the reasons I dont use a powered pa cab as my normal rig.

I use a gig bag (for the bass) on my back, cab and amp bag (always two amps) on a foldable sack truck.  It works well on public transport. EDIT The cab and amp bag are secured on the truck with nylon straps - very safe.

For the cab I take either a Barefaced one10 or Barefaced Super Midget if more volume is required.

I can't imagine taking any 4 x 10 cab on public transport. 😕

Frank.
