I have been using my Pro-Mark stick bag now since 2002. ItS leather, it holds up well when I take it gigging, has the storage space that I need, & looks cool, too. I love the embroidered “Pro-Mark” logo going down the side of the bag. But I must admit that out of almost every drummer that I’ve ever met, taught, & even my heros & the drummers that I read about monthly in “DRUM!” (& the other drumming periodicals I get), I carry very little in my stick bag in comparison! The Vic Firth “What’s In (various endoesers) Stick Bag?” ad campaign a few years back really shocked me as to how much drummers carry around! I guess that I like to keep it simple-actually OVERLY simple might be a better way to articulate it! I only carry 4 pairs of sticks @ a time-2 pair of Pro-Mark’s Mike Portnoy 420s for slower, softer playing, & 2 pair of Neil Peart 747 Oaks for the more heavy-handed stuff, 1 pair of Pro-Mark steel brushes (kept in their tube), 1 pair of P-M mallets(medium-soft rubber) for when my gong is set up & for cymbal swells, 1 DW tuning key (I keep a 2nd around my neck on a DW lanyard), & 1 bottle of Sabian’s cymbal cleaner w/ a small towelette to wipe them w/. That’s all that I’ve ever needed in my 21 years of playing. Many fellow drummers, even my students have commented on how little I keep in my bag. I cannot think of anything else that I (speaking only for myself) would need. The ONLY addition that I’m considering (& have considered in the last 2 decades) is a pair of rutes, but I have yet to even purchase a pair! Thanks everyone & keep posting!
