Re: Your stick preferences and why.
Vic Firth Maple SD2. It's fatter than a 2B; nice thick shoulder and short taper, but as light as a 5A. Great for my big hands. Nice balance too, I use it for pad work. It's my only stick, really. It has a nice small ball tip that plays down into a cone and it sounds sweet on cymbals from the first stroke through the end of its life. I've only broken it a few times, but it doesn't chip apart like hickory. It looks more and more ragged and suddenly breaks in half very cleanly. Usually I play the tips down to a nub before the stick breaks. I love this stick.
