Traveling with all this gear is tricky. Call the airline you’re traveling on beforehand to make sure you know the baggage rules. Always arrive at the airport 3 hours ahead for international flights as you have to clear customs with all your musical equipment. It’s also a good idea to have photocopies of any receipts you may have for your gear to show where you purchased everything. Have your e-ticket, passport and LOE (if applicable) handy at all times. Try every packing trick you know to make it easier.
