Re: Durable stick sugestions. Please help.
Maybe you can try this. The next time you go to pick a pair of sticks, first look at the body of the stick and check the different forms of the wood, figure how it was manufactured, if there's any imperfection. Those irregular forms will start to separate from the stick in no time, sometimes soon, sometimes later but definitely they are the starting point. So check that out and choose the stick with less striations. Also you may try a B (5B, 2B?) and review your Moeller, remember you don't attack the cymbal, you just hit it and go back, you don't want to go beyond that. Good Luck!
