What Fits in the D'Addario Backline GTP?

Mic, power, and instrument cables

The Backline's lower outer compartment features six modular partitions to keep all your cables neat and accessible. No more digging through a suitcase to find that TRS cable or IEC.

String changes and setup tools

The 8-inch x 11-inch accessory compartment gives you three 5-inch pockets for packs of guitar strings, a full-width pouch for bass strings and essentials, and several slim upright pockets that are perfect for screwdrivers, hex keys, clippers, capos — even a Sharpie or two for the merch table.

Pedals, DIs, and power strips

The Backline's 5.5-inch x 13-inch head pack handily fits 3–5 of your favorite effect and tuner stomps. Lifting the shelf reveals another modular-partition storage area that's great for DI boxes, power strips, and more.

Amp and vocal microphones

Whether you're a coffee shop singer/songwriter or you've got an extra-special amp mic you just can't gig without, the Backline GTP has you covered for mic storage. On the interior side of the 8-inch x 11-inch upper compartment you'll find three 3.5-inch sleeves for keeping your stage mics safe and secure. You also get a full-width inner pouch for keeping a wireless handheld or a couple of in-line mic pres safe on hand.

Mic and tripod stands

That's right — the Backline even has storage for your mic stands and camera tripods. Heavy-duty side buckles allow you to lock in and cinch up your favorite stage stands for secure on-the-go pack-ins.

Liquid refreshment

Two "saddlebag" 7.5-inch x 12.5-inch outer pouches make the perfect holsters for water and pop bottles. Bonus: a bottle opener on the left strap means you can crack open a cold one on your walk out to the car.

Laptops and tablets — all of them

Let's say you run backing tracks from your laptop and virtual instruments from your iPad. Maybe you've even got a dedicated tablet for communicating with a wireless mixer. The Backline GTP still lets you load in on the same trip. A 12-inch x 20-inch security pocket, which faces inward as you wear it for theft prevention, features a custom sleeve for a large laptop (up to 15 inches) and two accessory sleeves to hold common sizes of tablets. Not only does the inward-facing sleeve keep your gear secure, but it keeps it stable as well, distributing weight close to the body for greater stability and ergonomics.

Why We Dig It

At Sweetwater, the vast majority of us are gigging musicians ourselves. We rigorously test and vet every product that comes through our doors. D'Addario's Backline Gear Transport Pack passed our daily stress tests with flying colors.

  • Weighs next to nothing — Wearing an unloaded Backline GTP almost feels like you're wearing nothing at all.
  • Ergonomic and adjustable — The Backline has been designed to keep gear close to the body for a comfortable carry-in. The strap adjustments particularly impressed us; cinching up, you can really sense the quality of materials and craftsmanship with which this pack was made.
  • Vented back cushions — Cushions that cradle your back contained within a breathable vent mesh material reduce fatigue and keep you comfy in transit.
  • Water-resistant compartments —You don't have to worry about inclement weather ruining your day. The Backline GTP features waterproof zippers to help keep moisture out of your exterior gear pockets.
  • Holds just about all you need — At the end of the day, a backpack is only as useful as the gear it can haul. If you're a gigging guitarist, bass player, or acoustic singer/songwriter, the Backline GTP can dramatically reduce your haul-in, setup, and pack-out times by keeping all your essentials exactly where you need them.
