Re: My favorite sticks
I just 'discovered' Zildjian 5A heavy LAMINATED sticks. They are the BOMB! I usually don't like heavy sticks, got rid of my VF 5B's after only a couple of days, but these just feel GOOD. nice balance, good feel. The only downside I can see for some drummers is that they are very smooth from the lamination process, so grip tape or gorilla snot would probably be more necessary on these than on some others. I use grip tape anyway, so it wasn't a problem for me. After a couple of weeks practicing with them, (I only get a few hours a week to practice, but it's better than nothing!) hardly any marks from rim shots or hi hats. I really recommend them. A little pricier than most, but they could be your cup of tea.
