Re: Stick for small Jazz Combo
I use Vic Firth AJ6. It is similar to the Peter Erskine ride stick but a bit lighter. I absolutly love the the way the the stick tapers dramatically from shaft to tip, giving you a beefy section of of stick for ride accents, while the tip is a very small acorn shape that provides excellent stick definition. the balance is also beautifully distributed to allow for light and quick playing. I used to switch between the AJ6 and a variety of heavier sticks for louder playing but I find myself using the AJ6 for everything now and have no complaints about ts durability...these sticks can take some punishment as well.
