Re: Which drum sticks? Nylon or wood tip for V drum mesh heads.
I have used wood tip 5A's on my mesh head e-kit for about 4 years. No splinters, no damage to heads or any other part of the kit. The sticks have very little sign of damage despite my playing the kit pretty much every day of those 4 years.
I do keep the same two pairs with the e-kit rather than mixing sticks across kits. That was originally just because the kits are in different places, but I guess it has avoided any wear on the sticks.
The mesh heads are really pretty durable. I would just suggest you use the same sticks as you normally use, and keep one or two pairs dedicated to the e-kit.
