Are Steve Gadd's Autographed Series Drumsticks good?

Buy em and try em out for yourself! I found they had a nice feel, but I HATE HATE HATE painted sticks - c'mon what is the point? Nothin' worse than groovin' hard then feeling your sticks slowly slip away. Urgh.

Foursticks is right. Great stick, good balance and barrel tips are nice , but I too find the paint makes for a slippery stick. At least one of the Weckl models is also a painted stick.

If you're really interested in the Gadd stick though , you ought to give it a try. The paint obviously doesn't bother Steve.

i love the gadd stick and also hate the paint -- it does make for slippery sticks... i use wax and they still seem to slip after a practice. I like the barrel tips, but the wood chip WAY too quick -- and they are dead on the ride when they get even the smallest chip in the tip. If you like nylon and dont mind the paint, they are probably the best balanced, best length stick out there (for me anyway). I got VERY used to the length, which is great, but not many sticks are that short.

Fork's has a house brand stick called the Studio One which is a loit like the Gadd stick. You can also have CustomDrumsticks.com make some or any stick you want.

I've used and liked the Gadd sticks, but switched over to the Weckl's, which as far as I can tell, are identical in every way other than length.

The longer sticks (Weckl's) just feel better to me.
