Default Re: Your stick preferences and why.

Vic Firth 8D.
In the past I always used 5Bs but I found that as I relaxed more, and used less arm movement, the 5Bs felt dead and rigid.

To me the 8Ds feel light and almost whippy. I feel the heads and cymbals more, and my wrists don't get tired after a long session. An added bonus is they are slightly quieter, as I am a hard hitter so in this volume sensitive era I can still play hard.
