About 30 pair of barely matched 5B to 2B $2 bargain bucket sticks. After working for Regal Tip, I learned to pick out the good ones out of the seconds box. Paying $10 and up for a pair of nicely matched pair of name brand sticks seems like a rock stars dream to me.
Two mapex clutches
a clave block
Rhythm Tech Hat Trick
4x pairs of Taylor Hawkins signature sticks
Vic Firth Extreme 5B's
Pro Mark Natural 5A's (don't like them)
Cymbal nuts and felts.
My pro plugs

Yeah :) Not alot

Nice stuff dude, just a query - What is the silver box thing? (in the top image, not the metronome at the bottom) It looks like it has four input/output points and I was wondering what it is and what it is used for? thanks!
Hey Dan,

It's a headphone signal splitter, so you can put the signal in one end and split the headphones into four seperate outputs. I use it to boost the signal coming from my Sampler so I can play along to it a bit easier.
