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!
