A musician’s partner is his instrument along with the different devices needed to make quality music. Playing in a bar or even in a concert is always an opportunity. This is why musicians painstakingly carry their instruments and devices to places where they are going to play.
Small shows and large concerts have one thing in common, and that is the fact that there will always be people watching. Where there are people and music, things could go wild and exciting. However, at the end of the show, things can get confusing. Things might be switched around and worst, things as important as the musician’s instruments may get lost.
This is the same problem for those who provide sound system services. With all the confusion on stage and backstage, devices and instruments could really get lost. Things might have been picked up by mistake or worst, it could have been stolen.
As a musician, losing your instrument is like losing an arm. The reason is not only because musical instruments are expensive, but you also have grown accustomed to playing such instrument.
For those engaged in providing sound system services for concerts and other events, and for musicians as well, losing your devices or instrument is synonymous to losing your livelihood.
GPS For Musicians
Losing your instruments during and after your show is now a thing of the past. This is because technology helped save the day for musicians with a tracking device while wearing one of the gear to have and find your instrument. Unlike for other GPS devices, this device is specifically designed to be integrated with musical instruments.
The GPS devices are made to be easily mounted on different types of instruments. It could be a large instrument like a piano and keyboard. It can also be mounted on instruments such as a guitar, violin and other types of instruments. The device can also be mounted on DJ mixing consoles, speakers and other controls.
These devices are designed to be camouflaged to prevent people from unmounting it. Battery life usually lasts for about three months, depending on battery usage. The device will be using more battery if it is configured to report back on an hourly basis. Especially when the instrument has already gone missing and such timely reporting is required. Otherwise, the battery will last longer especially when the reporting is done only in 24 hours intervals.
To easily navigate the GPS device, it will usually have an accompanying mobile app. This way you can track all your instruments on your mobile phone. The best part about having the mobile app is that some tracking devices have Geofencing capability. Which means you can set a specific area to where your instruments should only be in. If the instruments are moved without your knowledge you will be alerted by the mobile app. A really cool feature to prevent thieves from going far when they steal your instruments.
With the help of technology, you will be able to prevent people from stealing your instruments and your livelihood. A little investment for you but with a lifetime of benefit, because you do not have to worry about all your instruments and devices getting lost in the midst of an awesome concert.
