  • A video explaining the different sizes and types of sticks

    I made this for new drummers or people who haven't experimented with sticks.

    I own almost every shape and size of stick available and there is a lot of people who don't ever change. It makes a huge difference in your playing.

    Thanks for that! Thinking I might try a maple stick for edrums as its lighter. Currently I have a
    some pairs of vic firth classic metal. Big old heavy sticks. Prob damage the new cymbals in a hurry hehe.

      That is a good idea.... I have used everything on my TD-11 and its a tank, but the maple is a good choice. That way you don't have to use super thin sticks and they are still lighter... I find hard heavy sticks on the rubber pads feel terrible, (although my doubles sound amazing haha) and on the mesh I hold back because I worry about damage.

      ONE of these days I hope to get a TD-30, or a TD-50 and will be more cautious. I honestly don't know how my TD-11 still keeps on trucking

                Don't need branded sticks. Snake oil and pose.

                  I gave up on Vic Firth 5A, tips break too easily. Vater Los Angeles were recommended to me and I can happily say the tips haven't chipped yet after several gigs. I believe it's all about the moisture content.

                    Occasionally I use AHEAD 5B ROCK sticks which are probably the heaviest conventional stick you will get. These have an aluminium rod as its core and all the other plastic parts are supposed to be replaceable. That's if you can break the glued joints of coarse. I use these on my Roland and Diamond mesh head drums with no problem.

                          I'm currently with Vater Sugar Maple 5B, nylon tips, for e-drum set and very happy. They are thick enough for comfortable play, yet very light but have a nice weight distribution. Nylon tips are quite handy for mesh heads.
                          TD-11 + TD-4 with a few pads and cymbals.
