Default Re: When Drumsticks Break

I've been using Vic Firth American Classic 2B's wood tip since 89' and as a rock drummer playing 5-6 nights a week on the road, i'd go through at least 2 sticks a night but if the stage was really dead with crappy monitors more like 5 or 6.. Lots of rim shots and ride bell Alot of them were splits and not completely broke in I've noticed here within the last year or so that the tips seem to be weaker and split at ease.Bummed so I switched to Pro Mark 747B Super Rock's. I like them so far they are a little longer but narrower and seem to be close to the VF 2B's in weight. I don't think they hold up as good as the VF's though.. I recently did some session work for an 11 song Rock album and went through 4 1/2 sticks but the tips were still ok. lol
I play Gretsch Drums, Remo Heads, Sabian Cymbals and Vic Firth AC 2b's wood tip
