Live Sound Checklist

Here’s a little list I started to keep so that I don’t forget important stuff when I head out to do a sound gig. Some of the items aren’t very specific but are just there to trigger my thought process. I typically think about the complete signal chain from start to finish. It goes a little something like this:

  • Microphone
  • Microphone Cables
  • Microphone Stands & Clips
  • DI Boxes
  • Multi Channel Snake
  • Mixing Console
  • Masking Tape or Board Tape & Sharpie
  • Main Output Cables
  • Power Amplifier unless using powered monitors.
  • Speaker Cables
  • Speakers
  • Main Speaker Stands
  • Aux Output to Monitors (Balanced 1/4″ to XLR adapter)
  • Gaffers (preferred) or Duct Tape.
  • Instrument Cables
  • Guitar Tech Box (strings, picks, soldering iron, xtra straps, tuners, batteries, nail clippers, wire cutters, string winder)
