Default Re: Why do i keep breaking sticks

Amen. And you know what it is? I have made a habit to watch various drummers I stumble across who mention that they break sticks and cymbals alot, be it on the road or in various studios. In almost every case, the drummers had no technique at all as far as glancing the heads and cymbals in a circular motion, every hit on every surface is a direct, straight down bash----and then the wrist comes flying back, because by going up and down in a linear fashion, they can't get their wrists "out of the way" of the rebound. This technique, or lack thereof, is in my opinion why some drummers can't make a pair of sticks last more than a day or two.
