Probably one of the most obvious threads i could make.

What stick do you play with?

Not only the make of the stick, but the size as well.

Me: Zildjian Nylon 5A Black dip.
  and sometimes Flix rock Brushes

i use currently vic firth 2B's.  i used to use 7A's cuz my hands are kinda small, but i broke them after like a week and i'd go through a couple pairs a month.  so i finally broke down and bought a pair of the larges they had in stock at my local music store.  i found an old pair of my 7A's and tried playing them and they felt so weird.  i also feel like i get a thicker sound out of bigger sticks.

Im thinking of keeping my 5A dips, but not having them nylon. That last 3 weeks, the nylon tip has split and no matter what strengh of glue i put on it, it keeps coming off.

Personally I hate the "nylon tip sticks" because of that "coming off" factor...  :-/

Well i havent got a clue about the make of my sticks:P, but they are 5A size though. These sticks were just some cheap ones i bought at my local studios for 3 pounds :/. But does it really matter what type of sticks you have? Ive been wondering for awhile and the only sticks ive ever played with are 5A's.
 Also, where do you get Joey jordison sticks Tongue?

The type of sticks do matter. They matter on the sound you get from the drums, and the weight and size change how your hand strength develops.

Heavier sticks will tend to make a bigger noise, and your limited to how fast you can move them (if you dont have very strong hands), and the lighter sticks make not as pronounced sounds, but they are much more agile so you can move them quicker.

Really its up to preference and what feels comfortable, and the style of music you want to play.

Joey's sticks are AHEAD joey signature sticks. If you go in a drum shop and mention metal sticks, they should know your talking about ahead. Personally, ive never liked the metal sticks, but its up to you.

Smelly_Granny, you are the man!  Sometimes i will be be asked to or even suggest using wooden dowel brushes dependent on the type of song, venue and volume requirements.  I too like 5A's as a general use stick. Practice with Jo-Jo's or 2B's.

Well i finally decided my sticks were dead.

The nylon wouldnt stop falling off one of them, the rubber dip had split in a couple of places on the other, and one had a huge crack in the taper.

So i got myself a new pair and this time they arnt nylon. Exactly the same as my last but wood tipped. Im quite suprised how big the tips are compared to the nylons, so im intereseted to here what they sound like. Im just carving in them now. I like to carve wacky patterns in my sticks.

oh and:

I play with a pair of Vic Firth SD1 General sticks.  It's just your standard oval tip sticks....a bit thicker than 2B.  Oh yeah....and they have a wooden tip.  Perfectly balanced sticks...I love them!!  None better than good ol' Vic Firth.... Grin

That happens...
I mean sometimes you get what I call a defective stick!
Personally I change sticks every 5 - 7 sessions, and not because they break, but because they wear out and become too flexible compared to a new pair, but sometimes I do get a stick that will break (sometimes even in half) in the middle of the first session... Ok, I am a heavy hitter, but I am using 2s Japan Oak!!! Shocked

I wish i had the money to do that. I am low on money now, and i still havnt bought any Crimbo presents for anyone. Also, ive got to have money because im going on a few trips this Christmas.

Im desperatly trying to stick this together with glue! Compleatly covering it with PVA should work. If you get it right, the joint can be stronger than the wood itself. Im not sure ive got it right, but im trying my best so i dont have to get out anouther £7 for a new set of sticks. I desperatly need money!  Angry

Oh, and along with the set of sticks, i bought a bigdog practice pad. The things that you just put on your lap to do rudiments (sp?) on. Maybe i shouldnt have got that. Damn it.

lol, good for metal? The sticks you use are jazz. I guess if you were an extremly hard hitter and playing weak drum heads, then i guess you could use them for metal. Otherwise, many stick companies, do a rock/metal range. But i use 5A, and thats really where you can start. 5A or any bigger than that really.

I use Bobby Rocks for practicing at work, desk or drum pad because of their weight and size.  Otherwise I am the biggest stick slut.  When I was younger and stronger it was V.F. American Classic Rock.  Still love them but hickory makes them very inconsistent in weight and many are crooked and break easy.  Now I have been using Promark 747 Rock japanese oak otherwise they break like toothpicks.  I always prefer nylon tips, when they fall off and if I can find it, super glue fixes it.  I also agree w/pasha sticks do wear out they loose bounce and feel.  I have a couple nylon pair that I've had for years.  They are too hard to find otherwise I'd stay with em.
