Tools For Bass Guitarists: What You Need

If you’re a bassist, you probably already know that you’re going to be carrying a much bigger case than anyone else, you’re probably going to have the heaviest and largest instrument that can actually be held on stage, and you’re a much  more integral part of the band than you probably get credit for.  You probably already know that you’re going to need more tools and gadgets than a regular guitarist, but what kind of things should you always have on hand?  What, in short, is the shortlist of tools you need?

I’m glad you asked.  I just found a pretty insightful little post that aims to tell you just that, what You need in your tool kit as a bass guitarist.  The tools are easy to come by, easy to find and you should have no trouble outfitting your bass case with them in no time at all.  Here, according to the article, are the most important items for your bass kit:

# “A philips (cross-head) screw driver.
# An allen key or two (hex key).
# A good set of wire cutters.
# A flat-head screw driver (if you have an older bass).”

What is great is, there are actually full guitar kits, like this one by GIGmate that give you all the tools you need in one fell swoop.  Not too shabby, not too shabby at all!  Toss in a few extra sets of strings, a cleaning cloth and extra straps and picks and you should be always prepared for whatever hurdles a live gig can throw at you!
