    I would suggest nylon tip stick of your favorite size. I found that nylon tips reduce visible wear on the rubber pads. It is a smooth surface hitting the pad no "jaggies" from the stick hitting it. Get a nice throne(seat) and a smooth kick drum pedal with a plate on the bottom. Enjoy the kit I know you will.

      This is just a little bit of drum theology, I guess. When I went "E" I decided I wasn't going to approach the set as an accoustic player going electric. I tried to convince myself that I was just going to be playing a differant kind of instrument. Kind of like how the playing techniques of a stand-up bass player compare to an electric bass player. I figured that was the best way to get used to the PD-9 cymbals. So far it's working well. I don't know if any of this makes since. I hope it helps in some way. It's just my brain prep to going "E". And as always, we thank you for your support.
