Default Sanding painted sticks

Anyone try it? Not a huge fan of the paint but I do love the old Weckl model, thinking of trying it today.

the Weckl stick is pretty nice, but I think it might be worth it to find a similar stick that doesnt have paint. Unless you're good at sanding, you risk ruining the pair since sticks are paired based on pitch. Removing something from the stick (such as paint) could lead to that. It could also turn out non-cylindrical and have a rough feel since the paint (IIRC) doubles as a sealant.

I wouldn't want to sand a drum stick, mostly because of deforming them and changing their balance. If you don't like the paint, find some that are close to the Weckl sticks that you do like. I have a few pairs of the Weckl sticks including the Evolution model. I find that they feel similar to the Steve Gadd sticks which I also like, but again those are painted black.

There are more sicks out there than what you can shake a stick at.

I've got another go-to stick, 85A, just kind of wanted to give the red Weckl stick another kick at the can. Maybe I'll think of another way to add a little grip.
