Protecting Your Music Gear In Desert

Nov 21, 2007
If you are a musician, then you must be passionate about your music gear. Your passion can even make you take your gear along with you to the deserts. But have you given a thought that whenever you play outside, your gear will be damaged to some extent? If you tend to play outside, then you must follow some basic precautions. And protecting the music gears will be easy, if you follow them.

First, let us take a look at how your music gear can get damaged.

If you want to play in a desert, then the damage will be maximum. No wonder that doing a desert show is tremendous fun and romantic too. The sand dunes, the clear blue sky, a whole lot of empty spaces around are pretty much fascinating for a musician. And the sounds will be better there because the external noise is far less there than in a city or even in an auditorium.

But reality is stranger than romanticism. The desert dust will damage your gears dangerously. Your external cables will turn to brown or grayish brown.

The dust of the desert is so dangerous that even if you use a steel case for your gears, it will still affect them. What you can do to prevent this problem is that you can just use some clear and standard packing tape. And then just seal the seam of your case with those tapes. But before tying the tape, just wipe out all the dusts from the seam of your case.

You can apply other tactics also for protecting the music gears. You can just use two cases for your gears. That means wrap your gears with a case and then put it in the steel case. If you do this then the dust will not be able to pass the second case and in that way it cannot harm the gear inside. For the inside case you can use any material. Large pillowcase, plastic garbage bags, etc. can be used. But just make sure that the gear fits properly in the case.

If you are doing a show in desert, then stay alert of the sand storms. It can mess up your gears. Just make a tent, where you can keep them. This can be a good way of preventing the music gears.

Before the sunrise the gears become very cold. The sun here gives birth to a warm wind that can create a condensation after coming in touch with the cold gears. The condensation can create moisture that can turn the thin layer of dust into thin layer of mud.

But problems do not only arise in deserts. Even if you play in a city, the gear damage problems are not completely eliminated. The pollution of the city can damage the music gear. Preventing the music gears is not that much tough. Just take good care of your gears. Do not just leave them anywhere. Keep it in a safe place. Keep them out of the reach of children.

Another very important way of protecting the music gears is insuring them. Proper insurance can fund you to get you gear repaired in case of damage.
