  • Tip type with PD-7/PD-9?

    I think I know the answer to this one, but to be on the safe side...does it matter if I use nylon or wood tips on my PD-7/PD-9's? I only found 2 posts on this, and neither had the definitive "it doesn't matter" I was looking for. TIA,

    I'd say it doesn't matter. (On mesh heads, I would recommend nylon.) But, my first choice of sticks for electric drums would be electric sticks!

      I always use nylon tip sticks on both acoustics and electrics, for both greater tip longevity and for better cymbal articulation. I haven't found where nylon tips have actually harmed any playing surface, and since wood tips are usually more fragile than the nylon, I'd say that either should be fine. Personal preference thing, for the most part, especially with the all-rubber pads like you mention.

        Nylon tips leave white spots on the black rubber. But if that's a problem ...

        Some nylon tips are too sharp. But splintered wood tips are dangerous too.

        So ...

          So what you're saying is that the best bet is to just smack the things with your hands?

            well, yes, but you should use a quality hand lotion first
