Rather than post pic's of drums, I thought I'd show you what a cheapskate I've been lately. Here are a few shots of some of the saddest sticks I've ever seen. I have since bought new sticks.
In my defence, sticks cost about $20.00 a pair where I live. Of course I have loads of sticks in my bag but that's not at the teaching studio. I just kept forgetting to bring new pairs in.
