    I've received so much inspiration, guidance and help from the community here and have been wanting to document and share all the various forms and levels of EDC I have developed in the hope that my contributions may help or inspire others as I have been during my time here. I very rarely get any time free but managed to find a day today so here is the first major instalment!

    I had put hyperlinks to reviews or manufactures websites for many of the items but the post wouldn’t work, so if you’d like access to those links just click on the photos and you’ll be able to see them on Flickr.

    My Gig/work Bag:

    I’m a touring musician and also teach music production across Australia, so I’m travelling constantly – This kit is constantly evolving and has already had some recent changes, but here is what it looked like just after my recent mission to perform in the United States:

    26. Tom Bihn Smart Alec Backpack – I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect backpack for over 15 years, this was pretty pricey once I kitted it out with the Vertical Brain Cell, a bunch of pouches and stuff sacks plus shipping to Australia – but goddam is it a sweet pack – really comfy to wear - fully loaded the whole kit weighs in at about 15kg and the straps don’t even feel like they’re under strain – and when unpacking it feels like Mary Poppin’s bag – where the hell does it all go?

    I play bass, and even though I generally do not use picks, it is always a good idea to have some picks for either when you get a blister on one of your picking fingers, or one of your guitar players forgets to bring some! :)
