Hi guys. I will soon be shifting to another city for period of 6 months or more. Planning to carry my gear with me. I however have some doubts. Would be glad if someone coud throw some light on it: 1) I’ll be carrying my electric guitar in well-padded soft case. Will I be allowed to carry it as an in-flight hand baggage? I have my doubts considering it’s size. Plus, I’ll be carrying a laptop bag with me too as hand baggage. I wonder if they’ll allow both. 2) I have zero idea on whether it is even safe to carry my tube amp along with me on a flight. I cannot afford a hard case for the amp, so that is out of question. I have the box in which it came, with thermocol padding etal. Please give your suggestions on what can be done for safe transit of the amp. 3) Does it matter which flight I book with regards to ease and convenience in transporting above two mentioned gears without much fuss? It will be about a couple of weeks before I move, so there is ample time in case any special arrangement needs to be made. Any and all help is highly appreciated.
