The one made by another company. Sorry to be such an ___ but it is my honest opinion here.

Their "Heavy Jazz" sticks. they're made from laminated birch. It has a great weight and feel and their tips hold up much better than most other sticks. I probably use them 90% of the time.

My guess is the Pipe Band sticks. They're 0.8 diameter maple.



The most durable sticks I've ever owned from any company has got to be the TruLine 2B Rebounds.

I use them when I have to sit in on another players kit that is "Tom Angles" worthy and the cymbals are in the "Shred the Sticks" position.

They hardly have shown any wear from errant rim bashing and cymbal edges and I've had them 4 years.

Interesting. I never knew anybody was making sticks out of birch. How do the shafts hold up to edges of hi hats and crashes? Do these have the same feel/weight as maple?

Actually the entire stick holds up very well. The balance feel just right in my hands and they're just a bit heavier than a standard 5A. To me it's a great stick for playing anything from jazz to rock and the slight extra weight in the shoulder area really rings home with blocks or bells. The laminated birch is probably one of the densest woods I've ever played.
