I'm interested in seeing how you guys cart around your rigs, and how you have it arranged on stage. Having a two unit rack flat on the floor feels a little awkward to me. Also, I'm particularly interested in you guys that use dollies or something similar. I'd like to get to a "one trip from the car" setup.

We all carry/transport parts of our PA system, so I use one of these to cart it from the car:



And if you look at my sig, it's just a pedalboard, so, obviously, it's on the floor in front of me.

When bringing my small 1x12 cabinet I use this to move everything but guitars and a couple of stands:



Speaker cabinet, head, pedal board, rack with wireless and Furman, gig bag:

That foldable hand truck is all I've been using for several years now...

My rig these days is very portable and compact: Kemper KPA, CLR active wedge, FCB1010, Tripp Lite line conditioner, two guitars.

MJ Slaughter and Scott Peterson both seem to use the same "gig bag"-- what is it? (it's the smaller bag they both have sitting atop their stacked gear).

My stage set-up:



The KPA, CLR, GR-20, VoiceLive Play, guitar stands, cables and other miscellaneous gear all fit onto one of these ghetto handcarts:



The 2 guitars go in a double Reunion Blues gigbag. One trip from the taxi, but I do have to break down and reload the hand cart to get everything in and out of the trunk.

Amp in one hand, Pedaltrain in the other, guitar in a gig bag on my back.

One trip..no muss no fuss.

That is a Taylor Gig Bag. Best price I found was at Sam Ash. Great bag if you want several compartments and flexibility. I've got mine packed tight with backup guitar, mic, speaker, power and wireless transmitter cables. Talk box, box with wireless transmitter/batteries, 2 mics, slides, pics, capo, strings, shaker, pills (vitamin B and Advil), nail clippers, tools, alcohol wipes, spare vacuum tubes, backup wall wart for GT-100, tuner, business cards, flashlight. I still have some room but not a lot.

I might be reading this wrong, you have a backup guitar in there?

btw, I've got the PRS version of that bag (exactly the same except for the logo on the front), it's awesome.

LOL. Access makes the bag in question for more than a few private label manufacturers. That's my 3rd one in about 15 years now. Had a PRS one, and an Access version. Now rocking the Taylor version. Same bag; great storage.

I've had the Peavey version for about 10 years. Ditto.
(But I blacked out the logo with a sharpie)

Y'all are giving me ideas.
I roll a 4x12 in with the head on top.
Second trip with the bag of stuff, 2 guitar cases and my pedalboard next.

My main rig (if PA/monitors are provided):
AxeFX II in Gator 2U bag, Guitar/cables/son of snark in "Tour Grade" gig bag, FCB1010 in keyboard bag that has external pockets for more cables, etc... = 1 trip
I add the CLR Neo if I need backline or don't trust the house monitoring = 1 trip but pretty weighed down.

Small rig replace the AxeFX II in Gator 2U with the Zoom G3X = 1 trip, if that LOL.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Even my PA rig is built around quick load in/out, just add 2 EVZXL's that have great handle placement (I can carry both in one trip!) and I have a bag that holds the stands/cables/etc... that I can put on my back.

PT-2 HC in one hand, 11R housed in a 3U Gator rack bag in the other, and either the Tele or the Strat in the John Mayer Incase gig bag on my back. One trip, no wheels (makes navigating curbs/stairs much easier).
