Re: Vic Firth Nova sticks?
A pair of brushes is like $20. There is no shortage of hickory trees I am aware of, sticks should be about $5, brushes about $10. Cheap sticks should be anywhere less than $5, since you pay for the pitch pairing and nice finish of ProMark, Vic Firth, Regal Tip, Vater. Drumheads are worse though (its over $100 for me to replace the heads on one of my kits). Drumming is expensive! They should raise the price on guitar picks too!
