Re: Why do i keep breaking sticks
If you're breaking heads, you're hitting too hard. I know because used to bash too. I broke sticks, a few heads and a few too many cymbals. I destroyed the no-name brand cymbals that came with my kit and broke two AA crashes too.
Learn the Moeller stuff. Get that shocking force out of the equation so you're not hurting your kit and your body.
Since learning the Moeller grip / philosophy, my wrists don't hurt nearly as much. I play better and have way more fun. I also almost never break sticks any more, even with hard rimshots on die-cast rims. And my heads lose their tone before they have any of the divots in them.
