Re: When Drumsticks Break
I do not remember the last time I broke a drumstick. Since my wife retired, our finaces are less than they used to be, so I went to nylon-tipped sticks but really did not like them. Then I found Pulse drumsticks at Musician's Friend. Vater rejects all sticks with any sort of difference of grain, color, etc. The Pulse sticks are Vater rejects. I bought six pairs of 5A's for $20, and so far so good. I am on the second pair, and the first pair lasted the same as any other wood-tipped stick I have ever used. So now I can use wood-tipped sticks again. Whahooo!
