Re: What to do with old drum sticks?
I had an idea a while back...
I wanted to take all my broken sticks and cut off the broken end with a saw so they were all the same length then use a wood rasp to smooth off the cut ends. Next with a drill press put 2 holes on opposite sides of the stick so I count strap them all together with a metal rod or a long threaded bolt. Then mount this guy on the side of my floor tom and I'd have a giant guiro.
If anyone steals this idea please post a pic...
Classy grip all day.
