I played nothing by Vic Firth SD4 Combos for 25 years. When I moved back to St. Paul, began to try other sticks...and other sticks...other sticks. I like the Vater Sweet Rides, the VF AJ-3 Jazz sticks, Keith Carlock's VF, and Dennis Chamber's Zildjian model. But I always end up playing my VF Combos, because it's what I'm used to. Nevertheless, I find myself switching sticks on gigs. I should've just stayed with what I had. Do any of you suffer from his compulsivity?
