Trad. grip players check in ....

Traditional gripper checking in. Mostly trad grip 95% of the time. That's the way I was taught way back in the mid-1970's and what feels comfortable for me. I have my snare tilted forward about 1 or 2 degrees. I can get better rim shots that way. :)

I use Traditional Grip 99% of the time. It's good enough for Charlie and Buddy, and a few others I dare venture to guess.

I`m checking in, too.
the ratio would be 85/15 for me, i only use trad grip for grooving stuff or marching and i love changing mid-song from matched to trad. I tried to see if i can play anything with trad and it is really awkward playing the hi-hat with my left hand or doing long fills on the toms.
