One thing I don't understand is that even though the Big Band stick is slightly larger than the Ride Stick, it feels so much lighter. I think that goes a long way towards making it easier to play with.
used the Big Band sticks for the first time at a rehearsal on friday and first gig last night.....and I have to say ....I love them !!!!
it wasn't love at first sight
they were on my doorstep when I got home late from lessons on thurs. night and my first impressions were....the bead is too big.... they were a bit on the light side and didn't give me quite the action that the little extra weight of the Ride stick gave me
after using them on the kit at a rehearsal then at a jazz gig that consisted of mostly up tunes I fell in love .
they really really stay on top and seem to respond really well to my slightest most delicate finger moves ...which surprised me because I didn't expect that bead to respond so delicately
thank you for the recommendation
