Geez. I've been pretty darn stupid over the years. I sure never thought of it! Great idea!

And use Nichiban. And even then, over time it will leave a mark/pull matterial from the bag.

Protection Racket have nice label holders build in. The AAA especially. You can even add a printed picture of said drum in that larger spot.

(serious) In the automobile business (in the old days. I'm reminded).. If you sold over 5 cars per year? You had to register with the state as a dealer..

Bob, Fred, Tom, Sally. Might be less tempting than '1923 Black Beauty'.

I like the photo idea as well... I just have typed luggage tags on my dozen or so snares as they are all in same bags.

I use luggage tags with a picture of the drum set. I then write the size of the drum in the case. Easy to identify without opening the case.

Damn that is slick! I guess I'm a real slacker though. I just use the silver and gold Sharpie (paint pens) directly on my bags. If I ever have to change it, I just black it out with a black sharpie and remark the case. That way I never have to worry about the tape peeling (or falling) off. You can see a few of them here.
