Default tip chippage...

i have a big problem killing the tips of my sticks really quickly. nylon tips just shatter(sometimes within a few songs), and wood tips slowly chip away until there's basically no tip at all, and then they break...

any suggestions as to sticks that i won't have this problem with, or at least not as bad?

and i use really big sticks for a set drummer(L = 17", Dia. = .695"), so keep that in mind...

Sticks are supposed to be expendable. Just buy new ones.

breaking within a few songs = hitting them to hard

drums are loud, hit them slightly lighter and you might notice a big difference. a pair of wood drum sticks should last you 1-2 weeks with one hour a day practice.
