The combination of the lenght of the stick, and the thickness, combined with the lighter weight of Maple, makes these sticks perform just like I want them to. I find them easy to play, and easy to play fast.
Maple tend to bring forward a lighter stroke to the cymbals, and this of course affects the sound of the cymbals. These sticks has a tip large enough to make the ride cymbal sing, loud and clear.
Beautiful and well balanced, high playability, and fast sticks, with a pleasant feel and control. The rimshots of a medium tuned snare sure has a remarkable punch to them, and the cymbals sound beautyful when played with these sticks.
Because of this these sticks is my all time favourite
