I use SILVERFOX drum sticks...They are the most durable sticks I've ever used.

I was a die-hard ProMark and Vater user for 25 years...but when I tried these sticks, I couldn't believe how long they lasted.

Most drummers...(unless you were in a marching band) have never heard of them.

Neil Peart's by Pro-Mark - I love 'em. Even if they didn't have a perfect weight, length and feel I'd STILL use them forever because they are the longest lasting sticks I've ever used. Only on my second set and I started using them 6-7 months ago.

This coming from someone who was going through 2 sticks a month. One stick in 6+ months playing and the stick I replaced it with last month still looks new means I didn't just get lucky w/the first two.

I've never got on with the feel of Pro-mark sticks. I use VF 5A's and 7A's. Does me lovely.
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!

I've gone up and down in size, almost always Vic Firth. Quite honestly if you give me some regular 5A's I'm set.
