Re: What sticks do you use?


I tend to play in a small venue. I shed a lot.

I use Vic Firth SD4's. Light with a beaded tip.

When I used to play live with band amplification, I used to use Zidjian 5B's. Bullet tips. The weight gives me enough power. Plus they are reasonably priced. I should move on from the 5B's and have an identical stick with a sizeable beaded tip

Played around with Vater sticks too. Classy but expensive. I still have a set of nightsticks; which I dislike but bought to challenge myself to play a heavyweight stick.

Re: What sticks do you use?


I have used Vic Firth, until they broke. Now im using some rockband sticks until i get a new pair. Not sure which size or which kind of sticks I need, though. Any advice?

I still use Vic Firth Pitch-Paired American Classic #7A and Pro-Mark Millennium II New Generation 5A.

I practice and warm up with the 5A and play with the 7A.

The 5A are wood tip and the 7A are nylon tip.

Re: What sticks do you use?


Drumfreakk13; what type of music do you play?

If you play rock or metal, I would suggest 2Bs or something with a little more weight, just to guard against breakage.

If jazz or combo, I would go with a lighter stick like an 8D or 7A (also good for fusion, by the way).

You could also use 5Bs; they're a tad heavier, but still good for jazz...I also tend to use them for rock (well, I did, anyway) and reggae. Just a freakin comfortable stick.

Yeahh...I think that is a good start for Vic Firth dude.
Not sayin', just sayin'.

Re: What sticks do you use?


I'll admit I'm a heavy hitter and I cannot seem to play lightly... LOL I have used Vic Firth and Pro-mark 5Bs and 2Bs for a long time. They do not last long for me. Two weeks ago I broke 4 Vic Firth 5Bs in one 3 hour band practice... Tried a pair of Carbosticks and snapped the tips off within 3 songs. Anxiously awaiting the 3 pair of Silverfox 5BXTs I won on ebay to arrive.
