These sticks are well made and look the part, however they are made of wood and do eventually wear down and break however was able to get 6-8 gigs from one set and few rehearsals in between as well. Comfortable to hold and did the job - worth the money!
These drumsticks are thin and light (7A) which make them very good to play softer music. The Quality is normal TAMA quality. Highly recommended for drummers who like thin drumsticks. The awesome paintwork adds a little bit "dangerous" on your playing!
