After 20+ years i have finally found 'my' perfect sticks!! Great balance and weight - and I mean GREAT balance. They'll be too light for those of you who like to hit your drums with tree trunks, but the shape of the tip brings out a really nice full sound on snares and toms, much more so than other lighter sticks I've tried. And they really make my ride (Paiste Giant Beat) sing beautifully! Another excellent contribution to the world of drumming by one of the greats. Thank you Mr Copeland!
