    usually try to carry a harmonica when I know I have some down time - been wanting/trying to learn for the past year (dosen't help that I'm tone deaf & got a bad case of anti-rhythm...).

    Visited my in-laws on Independence Day and brought my ukes. I played while my wife barbequed (she doesn't like me to mess with it when she's doing it).

    When we went back inside we didn't really have the oppurtunity for me to play. At the end of the day as we were leaving my mother-in-law asked me why I hadn't played for them. I think she acutally wanted me to play. That really made me feel good.

    I have been chased out of rooms before.

    Does an emergency whistle count? With my hands I can do a mourning dove, owl, and a few other sounds.

    Well I got a s/h DS Lite and found DS-10 at a decent price, and I'm having great fun with it so far. I've not found the M01 at a decent price though. I think it's currently £169 new and £89 s/h on Amazon shipped from Japan :uhhuh:

    Ouch, those prices are somewhat scary...

    I think the DS10 cost me something like £30, which at that point was imported from Japan as it hadn't received a domestic release (which then happened later), £170 for a sister version seems nuts (though presumably just supply and demand...).

    I may have mentioned this earlier, but recently have been playing with a few smartphone apps as an alternative - caustic is a great free option with fairly huge potential, and I think I spent a few pounds on the download of Nanoloop - originally a sequencer built as a cartridge for the original gameboy (plus a few updates on the gameboy advance) and more recently ported as an app for mobiles. Chiptunes on the road (if I can ever figure out the bugger)...

    I'm going to Tanzania for a month for work. I'm thinking of bringing one of my ukuleles, or at the very least an harmonica.

    Yes, I think the M01 must be collectable. My DS-10 was about £25 shipped. I'll be trying out Caustic later, cheers. :D

    This guy's inspiring! (skip first couple of minutes)

    I'm traveling to Tanzania next month on KLM. What's the best way to bring my Lanaki soprano ukulele?

    I'll probably throw my blues harmonica in the bag as well. Might as well. It doesn't take up any real space. I don't play it well at all, but it wouldn't hurt to bring it.

    Best way is on the plane with you if possible, it can get hurt if it goes under the plane. If that's not possible then this.

    Drummer here.

    Lugging around my 5 piece Tama set is a challenge (even when I'm driving to a paid gig), but I always have a pair of stick's with me (Vic Firth 5A).

    Well I made it really easy on myself, I FORGOT IT AT HOME!!!!

    I was running late and I remembered only about a half mile from home, but I didn't have time to go back. I lamented that the whole trip.
