Re: Anyone use huge stick sizes?
I started out using DC-10 sticks. I didn't know any better. Then I gradually got thinner diameter sticks over the years. I liked the 747 sticks when I played punk music and I pretty much stuck with those sticks for years and years. Now, I'm all over the place. In my quieter band I'll use wood tip 55A's, but when we gig I use nylon Vater Fusion and thick Hot Rods and wood tip Aaron Spears signatures. In the studio band, I've been using the Aaron Spears signatures and the 5B nylon sticks lately for a little more volume. It depends on the song and how I feel at the moment. I just can't seem to nail myself down to one brand or style, but I know I don't like anything bigger than a 5B anymore.
