Durable Sticks
PJFord, 28.12.2019
I use these for practicing - I think they're great, they feel and sound like real sticks. They have a great rimshot. When the plastic gets worn on the outside, you can just replace it. If you don't want to use plastic tips, you can simply buy wooden tips. When Im using my wooden sticks for practice I worry about breaking and having to buy more in a hurry before the next gig and when youre short on funds the extra tenner could be dinner.

I have also used these at gigs but I do prefer standard sticks because of the feel and the sound on the cymbals.

Also, these sticks are very durable but not indestructible - but I have had 2 pairs in the last 4 years. Ive only changed the plastic twice on each (6EUR a pair to change) which is fantastic.

very good looking sticks, feel like lars when using them lol.
they are a little heavy, not great rebound, weird feel. the good thing about these is that they never break, i have bad technique and the pe sleve is still not chipping, they last for a very long time. they also have very sharp attack on cymbals, especially if you hit the bell with the aluminium handle. they might be expensive but if anything breaks you can replace the parts. innovative sticks for sure.
