    You need 2 wooden pegs as handles to not cut your hands

    I have a small rucksack slung over the corner of a door in which I keep about 8/10 packs of strings, spare guitar straps, a couple of spare cables and assorted other guitar-related ephemera. Nowhere else to stash stuff at the moment.

    I use a small plastic fishing tackle box. A friend gave it to me as he won it at a grand opening draw and has many metal ones.
    The places for lures hold my capos, slides, winder, tuner and handfuls of picks. The bottom part holds strings.
    Oh yeah, I also have a pitch pipe and tuning fork that I never use.

    Clever. Can we see pics? That might be an idea others will want to use.

    Unless you want the head popping off and blood everywhere, I strongly suggest using a low-E string. Much less messy.

    Please don’t ask me how I know... ;) :D

    I really like this idea. I don’t have a container to hold all of my stock (12-packs, 5-packs, 3-packs & singles). Basically, they’re in a cardboard box.

    I do have a guitar string tin that D’Addario made, it was a sampler kind of thing I bought 2-3 years ago, with several sets of strings to sample and some picks, with the tin as a bonus. I always keep that in my gig bag.

    Before that, and I kept an extra set in each guitar case. Come to think of it, those extra string sets are probably still in some of my guitar cases.

    I use slat wall wire racks that I got from a music store that was changing their displays.

    They come in two sizes, one for guitar, banjo, and uke sized string packs, and a larger one for bass strings.

    One rack holds about 50 sets of strings.

    If we’re going to be efficient, a coated low E string works best because it gets the job done and DNA can’t get left behind in the windings........ I’ve been told.

    I tend to keep mine actually on my guitars. When they get old and cruddy I keep them in the bin.
