This Instructable is about how to make a travel kit for your guitar or in my case, the much loved and needed BASS!! I Just got home a few days ago from a tour through the northeast playing bass for a Christian youth band and choir. This was one of the most demanding things I have ever done, and had to go without error. Luckily, I had put together the nicest survival kit for my bass and heres how to do the same for your stringed instrument.

Step 1: Getting your materials
First off, you need something to put this all in. I personally used the bass case that i have, but others may prefer an empty first aid kit or a back pack, but this is up to you.
With that out of the way, this is what you will need:
Extra 1/4 in. cable
EXTRA SET OF STRINGS
Sharpie and pen
9 volt batteries
Cleaner for your guitar
Other then the neccessities, you can add what ever you would like. Some extra cash is allways handy, as well an extra strap.
Step 2: For the drummer:
You may still need some of the things I had mentioned, but don't worry about the strings or 1/4 in. cable. Instead, keep a few extra drum sticks and possibly even some drum heads, as well as a hex key set. A drum pad is nice for practicing and is relatively quite.
