Very true about the nylon tips. The nylon really makes my cymbals sing with a lot less effort plus it never chips. I use to play wood tips but when I started playing a lot of low key dynamic stuff at weddings, private parties etc the nylon let me drop the volume real low while still making the cymbals sing just as good.
