Re: My favorite sticks
I gotta go with Wegadrummer on this one - Vic Firth Boleros. I first discovered them when I was doing orchestral work since that's more or less what they're made for, but I just started using them on drum set. Thick so they fil out my also-small hands but incredibly lightweight and a great focused tip. Now if only maple didn't break so damn easy.....
Also I use Vater Fusion wood tips as my workhorse sticks (love the bead tip), and I got a couple pairs of the Gadd and Dennis Chambers signature sticks I'll use on occasion.
