Everyday Carry: Strummer

Feb 14, 2018

Category: Everyday Carry

Every serious guitar player has a setup of gear that they cannot go a single day without – be it a comprehensive pedal board, a bare-bones tube amp setup, or even just a spare pick in their pocket. And while we’d never suggest that a show-ready effects setup or amplifier counts as everyday carry, there are plenty of smaller bits of gear (like picks) that certainly do. For those passionate about plucking a 6-string, we’ve put together this week’s pocket dump with some essential EDC gear we believe any genuine shredder would be lucky to have – and a couple of bonuses, as well. So whether you’re in a rock band playing sold-out arena shows around the world or you’re just a solo show and like to hit up an open mic now and again, this everyday carry is for you.

Gerber Dime Multi-Tool

Though it’s small enough to fit on your keychain, the Gerber Dime multi-tool packs a big punch – offering 10 built-in functions that range from pliers, to wire-cutters, to a knife blade, to a bottle opener, and much more. You could do a whole lot worse if you need to tighten your cable inputs or clip a set of new strings.

Purchase: $14

WP + Standard The Picker’s Wallet

A minimalist wallet offering an I.D. window, a cash pouch, and three credit card slots, WP + Standard’s Picker’s Wallet also offers one very handy bonus for guitar players. Built into its full-grain leather construction, there’s a dedicated pick slot – so you can keep your favorite pick handy at all times, without having to fish around at the bottom of your pockets for it.

Purchase: $35

Knops Adjustable Volume Ear Plugs

Whether you’re a performing musician or a frequent concert-goer, the Knops should be a part of your EDC at all times. These handy ear plugs will not only help save your hearing from long-term damage, but they will allow you to adjust exactly how loud the world around you is – and they can be adjusted on-the-fly to suit.

Purchase: $49+

BOSS TU-12EX Chromatic Tuner

The successor to the legendary TU-12, this chromatic tuner is an absolute must for any musician who wasn’t blessed with perfect pitch. The battery-powered device will ensure your instrument is perfectly in-tune, no matter where your travels take you. It even has a built-in microphone for tuning acoustic instruments.

Purchase: $99

Civilware Pointer Folding Knife

As simple as it is beautiful and functional, Civilware’s Pointer friction folder is an EDC blade for those who want a rugged and capable cutting tool without any fuss or extraneous bits and pieces. With no lock of which to speak, this blade relies on an extended tang at the base of its AEB-L to stay open during use – which is paired to a grippy G10 and titanium handle.

Purchase: $125
