Default Re: When Drumsticks Break

I use Vic Firth Steve Gadd sig's. I also still roll them and bounce them off my head to check for tonality match. I guess it just carried over from the marching days. Works for me, though. I've got a little over a year going on my current pair of Gadds, although, 30 min once a week @ church with one or two outdoor festivals thrown in doesn't exactly count as hard use.

That'll change tonight after I pick up my new Pearls and take them home. Bet I'll still get at least a few months out of a pair, though. IMHO, if you're breaking sticks very often, you have either the wrong stick or the wrong technique.
