Re: Promark vs Vater vs Vic Firth
I'm moody with sticks. I really like Vater Sugar Maple 5As, but picked up a few pair of the ProMark Peart 747 oak models which are really nice and durable. I'm back with my Ahead 7As right now. Less impact on my hands and they feel good right now.
For some reason, I break Vic Firth and Zildjian sticks within literally minutes. Nothing else breaks on me until it is well worn down and throwing splinters all over the place. Weird.
