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
Anytime. You're welcome.
It looks like you discovered the same thing about the stick that I did... It doesn't seem that a stick that size would behave the way that it does.
It's actually a little bigger than the Ride Stick but it feels lighter than even the 5As I had been using. Plus that tip design...it's so easy to play light or as hard as you need. It has a nice fat cross stick sound too.
Glad you like it.
