As many of you might know, I tour professionally by trade. I work for a band full time as a guitar tech | bass tech and really enjoy what I do. Coming up through the touring world I always had questions and always tried to ask larger bands tech's their opnions on things. It is a big part of how I learned more and continue to grow as a tech.
For example, I was just out on a tour where the band I'm with was supporting Green Day. Everyday I'd ask their tech's at least one to two questions about why they do their craft a certain way. From stringing guitars, to tunings, to how a rig is set up. Most techs are pretty nice, as long as you respect their space.
So I'd like to open this post up to more of a Q/A type thing. If you're in a band, or just starting out touring, or maybe just a gear nut. Please dont hesistate to ask questions about rigs, or guitar, amps, pedals, cases, etc. I'd like to help others like other techs have helped me.
I do ask that we try to keep the conversation to more tech based stuff rather then "What is it like to tour, what is your favorite thing about touring, do you get to hang out with this person?"
Any questions about Tech stuff please ask below!
