Choosing the right drumstick is all about feel. A stick's diameter, length, weight, type of wood, taper, tip and finish all determine the way it feels in your hand. There's a stick for every player and every style of music. To play your best, choose the stick that feels the best. After finding a size that feels good, you can confidently experiement with other models.
The diameter of a stick in your hand is the primary element in its feel. Length and weight are also important. Shorter and lighter sticks produce a more delicate sound and may require more effort to play louder. Longer and heavier sticks produce greater intensity and allow you to play louder with less effort.
Small sticks have a diameter from 11mm. Lighter in weight, they are fast and responsive, subtle and expressive. Ideal for lighter play or smaller hands. Artists who play "S" sticks include Mike Portnoy, Peter Criss and Bill Bruford.
Weight, density, texture, resonance and flexibility all vary from one type of wood to another. For the best playing experience Weight, density, texture, resonance and flexibility all vary from one type of wood to another. For the best playing experience possible, choose sticks made from wood that feels right in your hands and projects the sound you want. Shira Kashi™ Oak is dense and heavy; these sticks are exceptionally durable and usually last longer than other types of wood.
The size of the tip's point of contact with the instrument determines tone and articulation. The differences can be very subtle. Wood tips generally produce a warmer sound, and nylon tips often produce a brighter, more articulate sound and are more durable. Experiment until you find the sound that you like. Oval tips produce a dark, warm tone; suited for multiple applications.
The main effects of a stick's finish are on its grip and feel. Lacquer is the choice of most drummers. Lacquered sticks are smooth to the touch. This comfortable finish helps to reduce chafing and blisters.

They last fairly well compared to other sticks that I have used. The wood tends to compress instead of chip so you end up with dents rather than splintering and peeling sticks, which I vastly prefer. Apart from making less mess around your kit they also keep their weight and balance all the way up to the point that they break, unlike sticks that peel.
When you play loud these sticks feel sturdy and when you groove and play complex patterns the balance makes you feel in control and on top of the rhythm.
I was given a pair many years back which were already worn and battered, however to my surprise they lasted over 2 years in my possession which is fantastic compared to my 2 day Vic Firth sticks! Once they eventually broke I immediately bought another pair, and after long uses there are hardly any marks or chipping into the stick!
Furthermore if you are looking for a strong, highly durable, light, 5A drum stick these won't let you down! Also you will save a lot of money because you won't need to regularly buy new sticks.
Oh, and to all the people who say that they break after ten minutes, they are either faulty or you are using them wrong!
I get a terrific crack out of them, really loud and they last weeks. Try to hit the drums in the middle and don't hit the cymbals on the edges, you'll not only break the sticks, you'll break the cymbals too!
