cool thread!

i have something like...

10 pair of weckyl's signatures, the maroon ones
a pair of ludwig brushes
some really heavy duty zildjian yarn mallets
a pair of Erskine's sigs for jazz
hot rods
a couple pairs of buddy rich sigs for warming up (they're heavier and more shoulder heavy than the weckyls)
some noname 2bs to give to the singer to bash away on a cowbell if he feels like it
a pocket knife
a couple keys (one on the keychain too, whoever said it gets chicks is right...)
bottle opener
cigarette lighter
business cards (personal and band's)


About 4 pairs of the bigger bulk sticks from guitar center, look like 5bs.
1 pair Reagle Tip Clayton Camoren Brushes.
1 pair ahead 5b sticks.
Egg shaker.
Extra drumkey (always one on the keychain).
A few extra felts.
Hohner Hotmetal harmonica in key of C.
Hohner Hotmetal harmonica in key of D.

I don't know what's my problem but I'm completly hooked on the 747N from Promark, I've been playing with those for more than a decade. Does somebody suffers from the same?

yeah i've been playing weckyl's maroon sticks for like 8 years, maybe longer. Every time I try anything else it feels weird.

I don't use my stick back for the sticks I actually use. :D
I just have some random sticks in the back, mostly just random models I don't use or tried at one time and sticks without a pair.

The sticks I use (Promark 5A Oaks w/ nylon tips) are sitting on the floor beside my kit.

Since it would probably take a thousand words to describe it, here's a picture instead:

Obviously this is for percussion gigs along with drumming, and I usually empty out a lot of the stuff for drum set gigs.
