Talking What sticks do you use?


Ok so everyone reply to this thread...
What sticks do you use?

I'm currently using the Zildjian 5A DIP.. the ones with the black rubber grip on them.. gets sort of irritating at times though

Pro mark 727's with the pro mark wrap or the Ahead lars drum stick but I broke them again.

Ih I am going to use a wooded one it has to be the 727 it just feels great to play with and dosnt feel to heavy like Im trying to play thru the head.

I'm also a big fan of Vater sticks... I've tried the Los Angeles 5A's but found that they're too short and don't give enough reach around the drums.. they also don't generate very much power.. but if you're playing light stuff like jazz and have long arms I'm sure they'd be great..

Currently I'm using the Vater Extreme 5A. They're a little longer than regular 5A's at 16.5 inches which I really like about these sticks. The tips are also thicker so they're able to produce a fatter sound on the drums and cymbals. It's great for rock and general purpose..

yeah i dont know why but i bought them at GC and they felt great when i was using them so i guess i just stuck with them but i also tried the van halen stick by regal tip and i like those they were 5a in size and 17" long just like a marching stick but they are sig sticks so there alittle bit more than the the vaters that and the guys at gc hook me up with 4 pairs of the los angeles 5a for 20 bucks so it works out. oh also the Steve Gadd sticks are great as well

Zildjian Travis Barker Artist Series..
I bought them because I love Travis but they're still amazing sticks..
extra length to move around the kit and light enough to do some crazy speed stuff.. the feel is also great and its not too thick or thin

I like the ahead sticks as well. I've tried the Joey Jordison signature sticks and was pretty satified. They let you go pretty fast and do all alot of rolls cuz theyre light. The only thing is that theyre kind of short so they dont give the best reach. It also got a tear drop tip which offers good sound and rebound off the drums.. overall a great pair of sticks! i think theyre the same as the 7a

somthing that I did for years when I got my ahead sticks.
I couldnt get a good sounding rim shot out of them and on a wooded stick I count get the sounds I wanted off the ride like you do with a nylon tip so I had a wooden one in my left and a ahead in my right.

Of course some reading this is going to ask why didnt you just buy nylon tip sticks in the first place so Ill tell you.

I have yet to ever wear down or brake a nylon tip stick because I always seem to knock the tip off some how and send it flying accros the room.

I hate them and I refuse to buy them.
I have spent to much on them already and had to many probloms with them.
