Re: Looking for that Drum Stick


I've had good results using Vic Firth American Jazz series. The AJ5's when I need to play at my quietest and AJ4's when I need a little more volume. Both sticks are nice and long but because they have small diameter shafts(.490" & .520"), you can play quiet without feeling restricted and make fast moves to cymbals without carrying a lot of inertia. And that makes for more controlled cymbal hits without being late with your timing. Now the down side is, I do have to replace them more than the heavier sticks I have. But I really feel it's worth it. I only play at church and the building is pretty small, so control is important. Yet, I can play quiet enough so that there is still plenty of room for dynamics.
Hope this helps.

Re: Looking for that Drum Stick


there are rubber tips for sticks that might do the job or attach brushes to cut down 7a light stick then just flip stick for solo:

Try sticks made of maple rather than hickory. Also use the thinnest sticks you can find. You might get a good result from timbale sticks.
