I have a small size bag i carry my pedal, stick bag and small towel in. Its a two handled bag which they fit nicely in. I was going through it to check on some sticks and the pedal was having trouble going back in smoothly and realized I was carrying around a bunch of extra stuff for no reason. Why am I hauling around 3 extra hi-hat clutches, and 3 extra beaters (one looks like an old Speed King beater) more felts ( i keep a couple in my cymbal bag) 2 bungees ( I was looking for these, supposed to be with my cart) 2 things of bug spray and memory lock ? Needless to say this stuff is not going back in the bag. Has anyone else notice extra, misc. pieces slowly making their way into you hardware/gig bags?
