Re: Anyone use huge stick sizes?
I've used the Vic Firth SDC (Danny Carey) for quite a while. I'm finding that the Vater Shedder model is working better for me in my current situation, which is slower tempo, extremely high volume. The Vaters are pretty dense, almost Oak like, so the rimshot sound is appreciably better on the Shedders than the SDCs. I feel like the large ball tips are a step down from the Vic Firths in terms of the ride ping that I like though. If Vater made an acorn style tip on a Shedder sized stick, I'd probably go full time on them.
