As a professional musician starting out in the industry, you must dedicate a lot to your live show. Live performances can make or break an artist, helping them get attention from some of the industry’s biggest players and the audience before them. Then again, if you do it wrong, a poorly planned out live performance can lose your next gig when you don’t deliver. These are the top 5 professional musician accessories to take with you for your next live show.
Whether you have a set list taped down in front of you or have something else you want to be able to read, a flexible light is used by everyone from soundmen to acoustic guitar players to provide sight in an otherwise dark room.
A height adjustable live show backdrop is a perfect addition to a live show, giving you the opportunity to hang lights, photos, images or something else. Simple in installation and setup, this can add a whole new dynamic to your live show and give your audience a sense of professionalism.
¼-inch guitar pedal patch cables
You can never have too many guitar pedal patch cables if you’re playing with a lot of guitar pedals. When one goes out, in the moment, it might be difficult to see where the problem is. That’s why you need some extras to plug in and get you going when you’re out on a gig.
Guitar tuning pedal
No one wants to play a live show with their instrument gently out of tune. That said, if you’ve ever done a live performance without a guitar tuning pedal, surely you’ve been caught before having to tune by ear. When you break a string or when you suspect you may be going slightly out of tune, a heavy-duty chromatic pedal tuner puts you back on the right track with your performance.
Tripod folding guitar stand
A folding guitar stand is easy to pack and is ideal to keep your acoustic, electric, or classical guitars on when it’s not in your hands. When you don’t have a folding guitar stand, you’re left attempting to prop up your instrument against the wall or having to put it in its case. This sort of behaviour can lead to out-of-tune instruments and permanent damage. Do your gig right, with a tripod folding guitar stand.
