You're welcome vegassuper.

They are pretty sweet and helped with a elbow problem I was having in my right arm over the last year which has pretty much gone away since switching to the very naturally balanced feel in my hands Hornets.

The Hornets look like they would be very comfortable in your hands. Are they comfortable using any grip or more geared toward a particular grip style. Thanks

I use both traditional and matched and switch back and forth between the two grips as the music goes along pretty quick at times and the Hornets "feel" just as equally balanced and good to go either way vegassuper.

have you ever used the eddie shaughnessy model drumstick? i am wondering whether the hornets have a tip like that. because its a nice feeling stick, but it feels like i am hitting the cymbal with a hammer head, not a bit forgiving. and the hornets look interesting

Never used the ES model stick but i'm SOLD on the balanced feel and stick click sound coming from either the 5A or 7A Raw model Hornets made of high grade American hickory Bosphorus. The tip has just the right shape for a clear ride "click" or sharp note on the drums {I posted a pic in a earlier post of the stick in question}. No fatique experienced like i've come acoss with sticks of a more traditional design weight distribution wise.

In all my recent acoustic jazz performance clips I have posted in the playing section i'm using the Hornets Raw 7A's for reference regarding their sound on both cymbals or drums.

The Hornets just feel "right" in my hands either on cymbals or the drums.........

Worth a shot...

I didn't know what to think of them quite honestly when first introduced to them visually speaking mostly but once I tried them out I knew they were really onto something with their unique design.

No. The Hornets Raw models are ALL American high grade hickory from tip to butt end.

Steamer, thanks for the info on the Hornets I ordered a pair of 5A and 7A raw. I will post some feedback when I get to try them out. Thanks again.

Received these yesterday and spent a couple of hours practicing with the 7A's this morning. My initial impression is good. They feel very good in my hands. I play mostly traditional grip but I switch to matched if playing something involving a lot of tom work. These sticks are comfortable with either grip. The design pretty much determines for you where to hold them and they are well balanced when held there. They only make them with a ball tip but since that is what I prefer it works out just fine. The rubber o-rings on the butt end are mainly for vibration reduction but they work well as mallets on the cymbals. For reference I have been using Vic Firth Peter Erskine sticks with a ball tip. The tip on the Hornets is a larger diameter so I get a little more sound with them which could be good or bad I guess. I try to play with a very relaxed loose grip and sometimes get annoyed with traditional sticks sliding up or down in my hands. The contours on the Hornet sticks seem to eliminate that issue. Overall I am very pleased with them. If I am still pleased with them a few weeks from now I will feel better about spending the extra money.

Thanks to Steamer for pointing me in this direction.
