Every tech/engineer should have a plethora of tools available to them at all times. Engineering is more than just pushing buttons and pushing faders. You need to learn all facets of your gear, and how to service and maintain it all. Bad stuff can happen at the worst moment possible when running sound. Are you ready for it? Here is an exhaustive list of supplies that every sound man/woman should have in their arsenal for such occurrences:
1. Cables - All Kinds!
2. Connectors, Adapters, Mics, and Direct Boxes
3. Testers, Meters, Analyzers
4. Various Hand Tools
5. Wire Management
6. Solvents and Lubricants
7. Manuals To All of Your Gear & Other Reference Materials
Well that's all I can think of for the moment. If any of you have anything I forgot, please feel free to comment! Much Love!
