These are more like it for the Zildjian K-Custom Ride. Oak is apparently essential to bring out the full overtones. The only criticism is that I was hoping for a narrower shoulder and longer taper. Not quite as good as the Joey Jordison PW515W oak also from Pro Mark. Well I'm still experimenting with the limited availability of oak sticks. As the stick guide also states: Drumsticks are a very personal choice.
