Let me start out by saying , yes you can use anything to hold your stuff , this is just a lot more organized .
when i either go to band practice or just in house drum practicing , i like things to be comfortable , and keeping my pockets empty , gives me a more enjoyable playing session , This drum butler does just that . it holds my keys , change , drum keys and water bottle to keep me hydrated , it looks great . i feel well worth the money . and it goes where i go , easy on / easy off ... i just recently put a veneer wrap around it and clear coated it to match my kit and it looks custom made . well worth the investment and i know where everything is when i leave ... hope this helps .
