I’m considering a move to a country with, let’s say, less reliable or sophisticated infrastructure. I’d be allowed only five suitcases (!) free on one flight if I wind up approved for the destination as my main residence (bureaucracy and fees are endemic there). Problem is said location no longer has any postal service post-2020 ( !) and only DHL serves it, or couriers, at exorbitant rates.
Now, my J bass and Rumble 40 Studio amp would go with me if I do (as foreign products can be far costlier to buy over there, and aren’t likely stocked, at least at reasonable prices due to tariffs and more “fees”). I guess they’d count as a suitcase each? I have a gig bag. Is that good enough for travel abroad? Or should I invest in a hardshell? As for amp-safe travels, any suggestions for safe and secure transport on smaller planes to less frequented places? Purveyors? Brands? Workarounds? (P.S. If I overlooked past posts on this hard shell transport query, my apologies.) Thanks.
