These sticks are perfect for any drummer looking for a durable set of rods. They have a built-in vibration reduction system and a replaceable polyurethane cover so you can play as long as you want without worrying about the bristles holding up. The built in vibration reduction system also drastically reduces hand fatigue. I would definitely recommend these sticks to any drummer. I believe Ahead are the worlds currently leading drum stick manufacturer.
Playing drums has often the problem that it is way to loud for all other people you are playing with. So I bought this Splitsticks for band rehearsals without ear protection or gigs in location where one has to play very quiet (church or background music). It was a good decision to buy them for such purposes.
Am using these on my practice kit with mesh heads and cymbal mutes and these are my preferred rods to use. They are heavier than wooden ones but on a kit with bouncier mesh heads this is useful, and stick definition is nice and quiet on the cymbals.
For acoustic playing my preference would say they are a bit too heavy feeling, but that's not why I bought them :)
