Default Rods (dowel sticks)

For those of you who sometimes use rods,I guess that is what there called,for light playing,Stop paying $25.00 a pair.Here's what I do,go to hardware,Lowes ect. and buy 1/2in plastic PVC pipe,it is almost a 5A grip,cut pieces about 8in long or custom fit your own length.Next get a pack of shrimp skewers 12 will fit nicely,slide them in and tape at bottom,I use electrical tape,and once in the middle.There you have them for about $1.50 a pair.The best thing is when rods wear out you can undo tape ,put new ones in.If you want bigger dowels, get them at Wal-Mart,I think about 4 will fit in pipe.Hope I have saved someone some money since they wear out quickly.They are light and sound wonderful on cymbals.
