Default Re: Do you retire your sticks?

I usually trash my sticks when they start to splinter and make a different sound, because i don't think it's good for my drumheads when i keep on playing with splintered sticks

I must admit i am a bit of a shopper holic when it comes to sticks i like to change every now and then going from heavy to light just to see how my stick control is doing but, i normally wait untill there are splits or the stick becomes to rough

I save the worn ones and I use them to light my fireplace in the winter. They add a nice flavor to my BBQ also. Waste Not, Want Not!

When they start to feel rubbery or start to splinter from rim shots they get tossed.

I would be afraid the clear finish might be a bit toxic for the barbecue.

If one of my sticks breaks, I hang it on the wall above my drum set. It's awesome artwork. Just hang it up with clear tape.
