I wanted to post some tips on the drum key issue, then thought better of it.Are they really drummers? We all have like 50 but only know where 2 of them are. I swear the left sock monster that lives in my dryer is stealing my drumkeys also. Maybe that's how he locks his left sock box.
I'm done now.
But I keep two keys in my stick bag, and two keys in my cymbal bag. One lives on the DW hi hat stand, and one lives on the bass drum pedal. But this crowd may not even be at the "I need a stick and cymbal bag" point yet.
