i tried out a pair for the first time, and a stick broke the first day! it had to have been a bad stick.


playing traditional, i really rely on rimshots. lately, i've been hitting lighter and using dynamics a lot more. i play at a much reduced volume and my sticks last longer as a result. still loud, but instead of 90% volume maybe 50%
