I guess I'll add my list... I used to have a nice leather stickbag with a lot more in it, but it got swiped so now I got this cheap Road Runner bag I got from GC.

Anyway here's the rundown

3 Pairs Vic Firth 8Ds
1-2 Pairs Various 5A, I think right now I have one ProMark and one Vater
1 Pair ProMark Hot Rods
1 Pair Vic Firth Steve Gadd Signature Brushes
1 Unknown brand cheap drum key

I'll usually have some quarters in there just in case I need to go to the soda machine or something.
