Default Re: Pitch-matched sticks - How critical is it?

As Bermuda and DrumEatDrum already said, it is pretty important in orchestral snare work to have sticks that match in pitch, since a large enough variation is audible in the sound of the drum when playing.

As for lifespan issues, I played the same "carefully selected" pair of SD1s for seven or eight years before changing to a pair of Tom Gager snare sticks that I'm still using today.
