The bag is made with reinforced heavty duty nylon stitching that is tough enough for the heaviest of road warriors. Internal padding protects your cymbals from bumps and falls.
- EXTERNAL HIHAT/SPLASH COMPARTMENT: To ensure you keep all of your cymbals safe inside the bag, a smaller 15-inch diameter front pocket is the perfect place for hihats, splashes, and small crash cymbals that would otherwise not fit right with larger cymbals in the main compartment.

1 - Hold all the sticks and small accessories I need to transport around with the rest of my gear, safely and efficiently.
2 - Hang on a floor tom within quick reach, in case I drop a stick or need to swap to brushes/rods/mallets/etc.
This bag fits the bill nicely. I didn't want something too huge, nor did I want to be stuck with something that only holds a few pair of sticks. The extra tiered pockets allow for a stick to be loosely pulled from the bag on the fly, while the larger compartments hold plenty of reinforcements. Construction is a 9/10, made from a heavy Cordura. Latches and fixtures are sturdy, velcro used is beefy, and the zipper is robust [albeit a bit stiff...it'll need some breaking in]. Hanging hooks and cord are thick and easy to adjust. A small tasteful Meinl logo doesn't betray its minimalist appearance. My only real gripe is due to the fantastic choice of materials, it's got some heft for something that your sticks ride in.
Overall, it's the most well thought out stick bag I've seen for under $60 [let alone $20]. I've handled many other comparable bags, and it blows them out of the water in terms of functionality, design, and sheer construction quality.
It was able to hold 2 pairs of marimba mallets, bass 5 mallets, 3 pairs of Marching sticks, 5 pairs of concert sticks, timp mallets, brushes, as well as all of the extra sticks I would pick up after my section of high school freshmen. There is a pocket on the inside for a pitch pipe, and smaller ones for pencils. The outside pocket was great for stick tape, a drum key, and girly essentials like Chapstick and hair ties.
The handle is well made, and the strap is even better! On days when you're taking home text books, a coffee mug, lunch box and a uniform, the strap came in handy because it just went over your shoulder and by your side.
I absolutely love this stick bag, it is SO well made and definitely worth the price. It was cheaper than my vic firth bag that fit less and broke after a year. I suggested it to my whole section. I used this bag all of senior year and it's coming to college this year. I am SO in love! This bag is great for beginners, or for pros. I love it.
-SIZE/CAPACITY. Plenty of room for many pairs. Tall enough for any sticks I'd use. Thick enough for mallets. Not too big for most gigs (like those deluxe jumbo bags, which seem like they’re less for moderate gigging and more for home studio organization imo).
-ORGANIZED. 4 different stick pockets (each holds at least 2 pairs) plus 3 pencil pockets and a small velcro pocket inside. Large velcro pocket outside. Pockets expand outward a good amount.
-CARRYING. Handles on top. Adjustable shoulder strap (18”-34”) can attach at 3 different places for different carrying styles (see pics).
-HANGS from lugs. Sling it from your floor tom for quick access during a gig. Hooks adjust between 8”-13.5” and attach about 2” below the top of the bag.
-MATERIAL. Feels like durable canvas. Some bags are lined with soft felt or something fuzzy and sticks with cracks or chips will sometimes get caught sliding in and out. Not with this one—same material inside and out. Nothing that would harm a drum is present on the side that will make contact with the drum you hang it from.
-FULL LENGTH DOUBLE ZIPPER. Main pouch zips up completely when folded so your sticks won’t fall out. Two pull tabs so you can open from top or bottom.
-PRICE. Reasonably affordable price for any stick bag, so, considering the good features, this is a great value.
-Shoulder strap buckles are plastic, unlike the metal ones pictured.
-Though the stick slots are roomy enough, I’m still developing a “feel” for them. I mean that if I switch sticks during a quick pause or while drumming, I can grab the new sticks just fine without looking, but I often miss the pocket when trying to insert the pair I want to stash away. It feels like I’ve stuck it in there, but I let go only to hear the sticks dropping to the ground. Haha, not a reason to avoid this product, just something I’ve got to get used to.
-Velcro pockets leave some room on the side where the Velcro doesn’t extend, so if you are being careless and toss your bag in the car sideways or something, a smaller item could find its way out of the pocket.
-I thought I might occasionally stuff this into a backpack to reduce how many handles/straps/bags I’m carrying, but it’s really more of a carry-on-its-own kinda thing. It’s a little beefier than expected (though totally appropriate for its function) and may be too tall to fit in some backpacks comfortably. It’s still very portable and easy to travel with.
-I think this bag is the best value for drummers needing to organize and travel with a moderate variety of sticks. Perfect for a studio sesh. You can def pack more in here than you’ll need for most gigs.
-Consider choosing a SMALLER bag if you just want to have a backup pair or two handy (check out Meinl’s Compact or Vic Firth's Essentials)
-Consider choosing a LARGER one if you need something to keep at home or in your studio to organize ALL the variety and duplicate pairs of sticks that you like keep a stock of. Or if you’re a beast of a session drummer or percussionist who needs to bring a ton of different sticks.
