Re: Vic Firth Nova sticks?
I have bought two bricks of 5a wooden tips and so far they are great. I am a medium hitter and play anything from metal to jazz and a pair of these sticks usually last me about two months. I usually just have to retire them because of the tips chipping off, I think I've only actually broken like 2 sticks. But anyway great buy for 40 bucks, I just can't see myself going back to paying 8 dollars a pair for sticks after using these. The weight of the pairs do vary somewhat throughout the brick but thats the same with bricks of any sticks. It works out great because I use the lighter sticks for jazz or instances where i need to play quiet and the heavier ones for everything else.
