Default Ed Thigpen Brushes

Hey,

Has anyone tried Ed Thigpen's signature brushes? It's the only wood handled retractable brushes that i've been able to find so does any1 here have good things to say about them?

Nice brush, has a nice grip, the wood is more for rim-shots than a handle though.

I use the Ed Thigpen Brushes because I like how the handle is a little larger than the average brush handle. I also use the Jeff Hamilton model from Regal Tip as well. Both have a larger handle, which for some reason just feels better to me. No real explanation as to why though.

No, the grip is a textured rubber. It doesn't feel like a stick.

We've been talking about how the handle is Wood. Unless you hold your brushes way past the fulcrum point, you should be holding onto the wood portion.

not really, the rubber (in my opinion) is the fulcrum point....almost every brush player (myself included) holds the brush very close to the top ie, very close to the brush bit)

i find it gives more control, especially in the swoosh!
