Re: One or two favorite sticks?
Pro-Mark Shira Kashi Oak 5A w/ nylon tip. That is my go-to stick for everything, however I keep a pair of Hot Rods in the stick bag as well for quieter gigs/jams. I also keep a well-used couple pairs of Pro-Mark Rock Knockers in both hickory and oak around; just some more options.
