My drum sack.

A load of drum stuff, and 3 condoms, always use the drum stuff, but never any need for the condoms, DOH !!!

I hope my drumming is better than my looks, if not my sack will be made redundent in more ways than one.

DOH !

ehh. a lot. so much, I added a a small tackle box full of parts...

1. 8 pair vic firth 5BN
2. 5 pair vic firth 85A
3. Vic Firth Cymbal Mallets
4. Vic Firth Brushes
5. 30 Evans Min-Emads (got a sweet deal at Guitar Center - a penny a piece)
6. 2 Pearl drum keys
7. 1 Ahead key clip drum key ( I clip this to my cup holder on my hi hat stand while I play)
8. Drumhead tape (it's easier and quicker to tape them than to change them)
9. 1 Cabela's Brand diamond edge hook sharpener (cymbal cracks, file it down to get rid of the sizzle)
10. vast array of tension rods for all of my drums
11. Lug nuts (I crank my snare and snap them often - I always bring a backup snare but if I have time before a show, I change the nuts)
12. spare cables for my triggers/SPD-S (or guitarist because they never have them)
13. Metronome
14. Pitch Pipe (helps for those backstage run-through's with the vocalists)
15. washers and screws
16. Cymbal Felts
17. Wing nuts for cymbal stands
18. Last Show's Set list (to refer to when we don't know what to play)
19. 9V batteries (for guitarists)
20. Anything the girlfriend wants to keep safe (i.e. wallet, I.D., money, makeup, tampons)

Wasn't going to do this innitally, but here goes.

Depends on which bag. I have three. 1 for practice set(s), one for orchestral work and one for gig set.

Gig bag:

2 pr Regal 5B Maple (dont like the hickory)

2 pr Mainline 7A (got a deal on them and they sound good on ride)

1pr Vic Firth Conquistador timbali sticks (for latin)

1 pr store brand 5B store brand hickory w/ Nylon tips (for what little rock I do)

1 pr Regal Jeff Hamilton brushes 596R (like the weight)

1 pr some old stick w/felt buts for cym rolls

a couple of soft lead pincles to make notes on music

I usually hang the bag on my FT for easy access during a gig, but I have a wire stick holder on the BD and I usually have my brushes with my extra music (won't fit in the stick holder)

What's in your orchestral bag??
Lots of mallets I guess?

Bram
No, primarily tympani sticks and a couple pair if concert snare drum sticks (1 pr W.H Reamer). I suck at mallets, so they wont let me near them. Besides, we have some pretty good mallet players.

Here is one of my stick bags. (I have several for different situations) This seemed an interesting choice. I have samba instruments including mallets and even a pair of rainbow barquetta sticks, timbale sticks, a bodhran beater and various other sticks.

Its my Cindy Blackman bag. I have many others bags full of various sticks blah blah blah.

Zildjian 2b dipped sticks (hickory or maple... i can't remember)
pro-mark 5a (shirakashi oak, best wood for sticks IMHO)
Regal Tip colapsable brushes
2 spare hi hat clutches
spare hi hat stand parts (pedal, the rod it mounts on, spring)
a double kick pedal (in case i break a bass head, or can't fit both of my kicks in a room)
spare beaters
spare guitar picks
a cymbal stacker (great for my splash in small rooms)
2 drum keys (a third on my key chain juuuuuust in case ;] )
Slingerland "Buddy Rich" practice pad
skullcandy "inked" headpones (cheap for the quality, 20 bucks, and help block sound)
and one of those pine tree shaped car fresheners in the "vanillaroma" flavor. i also keep one hanging from my kit at all times (cause several hours of practice will make a room smell "manly")
