Vic Firth Jazz Rakes
Unknown Yarn Mallets
Vic Firth Swizzle Sticks
Vater Manhattan 7As (I wish I could find the VF equivalent)
Lens Wipes (For my glasses)

I don't keep any drum keys in my bag, cause I keep them on my key chain which stays on me at all times. I strongly recommend that you other guys keep a drum key on your key chain or otherwise in plain view. When girls ask about them and you explain it's a drum key and you're a drummer.. it's MUCH better than any pickup line.

Re: What's in Your Bag?
Great post...interesting to see how much OR how little others have in their bags. Also, always good to get different ideas on gear.

My bag: Zildjian Stick Bag

2 pr Vic Firth American Classic 5a
2 pr Vic Firth American Custom SD1 General
2 pr Regal Tip Jazz
1 pr Vic Firth American Custom T1 General Timpani Mallets
1 pr Vic Firth HB Brushes - retractable
1 pr Regal Tip non-retractable brushes
1 pr Pro Mark Cool Rods
1 pr Pro Mark Hot Rods
1 pr Pearl Claves
Rhythm Tech egg shakers
Drum Keys
Small Roll Gaffer tape
Multi tool
Ear plugs

I usually carry a canvas "briefcase" type bag on gigs as well which contains spare cymbal felts, snare wires, booklight, drum dial, any music charts/set lists, shaker, bottled water, my digital camera.

Probably too much stuff, but I am too old and set in my ways to change now!

Happy New Year!
