The thinest sticks that I have found are Vater Manhattan 7A.
They are 12mm dia.
What is the diameter of the sticks that you have?

The original Vic Firth Peter Erskine signature stick is very thin and quick with a small round bead, they may be just right for what you are looking for,

Some other offerings you may want to check out are :
Bop Works -Gene Krupa and Mel Lewis models.

Regal Tip ping cymbal sticks

ProMark Elvin Jones model.

Vic Firth or Regal Tip 7a should be thin enough for anything but also check out Vic Firth Jazz series for more variety

Actually you want the Bopworks Birdland model :). My favorite stick for jazz.

The very thinnest, lightest sticks I have ever played with are Vic Firth SD5 Echos - a maple stick with a fairly thick grip area, but a really long taper to a whisper-thin shoulder and pinhead-size tip. In maple, so about as light as a feather. Also more fragile than a soap bubble in a papermill.
