Re: When Drumsticks Break
I actually have the very first pair of sticks I ever owned. It is a pair of Ludwig 7A Nylon Tip. Since they were only used on a snare drum for a couple of years, they did not get beaten up by cymbals. By the time my parents bought more drums, along with cymbals, I had different sticks.
By the way, the sticks are 45 years old.
