Default Re: BREAKING STICKS

I'm against carbo sicks for this simple reason. When you strike a drum, most of the energy goes into the drum head or cymbal. Some of it doesnt. Especially when doing rimshots alot of tthe enery doesnt make it to the drum.
With wood sticks its absorbed by the wood, resulting in wood (small) vibration, chipping, and sound(good).
With carbon the energy is not so much absorbed by the stick. If it is it comes back as vibrations (bad). If it doesnt, it goes into your drum's rims and shell (bad).

Somethings gotta give. Something is getting damaged by all that extra energy not being absorbed by your wooden sticks. Id rather it be a $5 pair of sticks than a $500 snare.[/
