Default Jazz Drummers - a few questions?

For my GCSE in Product Design, I have decided to make a drumstick which functions as a brush and a drumstick. It would have different ends you could screw in for drumming or using brushes. (eg. you could screw in a brush end for light jazz and screw in a drumstick end for heavier drumming.)
PLEASE would you answer a few questions so I can complete my research?

1 -Do you use Drumsticks?
2 -Do you use Brushes?
3 -Do you find that switching between Brushes and Sticks is an issue?
4 -Would you buy a product with interchangeable Brush ends and Drumstick ends?
5 -Are you a professional or an amateur?
6 -What price would you buy it for? (0-10) (10-20) (20-30)
7 -Any additional comments?

Thankyou so much,
Franbo100rocks

Good project! Are you aware that a combo stick with a bead at one end and bush at the other is jaded by several manufactures? Denis

Thanks for your reply - Yes, I have seen the other products on the market, but I hope my design will improve on them as they are made of metal and would feel strange to play with I imagine. The other products I've seen aren't screw in, so you have to play holding a brush end when you want to use sticks.
Would you mind quickly answering my questions so I have some data to use for the project?

Cheers, Franbo100rocks

1 -Do you use Drumsticks? Yes
2 -Do you use Brushes? Yes
3 -Do you find that switching between Brushes and Sticks is an issue? No
4 -Would you buy a product with interchangeable Brush ends and Drumstick ends? No.
5 -Are you a professional or an amateur? Amateur
6 -What price would you buy it for? (0-10) (10-20) (20-30) None since I don't have the need.
7 -Any additional comments? I can't tell the band to stop and wait until I change out the ends to continue the rest of the song or solo I'm comping behind since many times I use both within the same song.

Why not produce a quality stick that has an adjustable brush side, too? The brush/stick combos on the market are mostly useless as they do not allow for wire adjustment on the brush side.
