It depends. With a nylon tip It's about 3-4 months of intensive playing until the stick breaks. With a wood tip It's about 3-4 weeks. Wood tips chip away too fast when I play, so I tend to use nylon tips.
depends im either lucky or not. ive got some drums sticks have had for at least a year now. but then im not a heavy hitter. also have been unlucky bought a pair of sticks and broke them in less than a week. so prob just bad wood in one pair.
one thing i do hate is breaking one stick. aand then having about 4 5 sticks that are odd. lol. anyone else get that?
btw best sticks ive played is 5a extremes Nylon. vic firth.
eh, anywhere from a week to 3 or 4 months. sometimes it just matters if the stick has a flaw or how heavy im playing. i am an extremely heavy hitter, and i used to break like 2 sticks a week. but then a started playing promark 5bn white oak and theres really no problems with them.
Depends on how hard I play. The style, tempo or type of music. I use Vic Firth Steve Gadd sticks for the light stuff. I use BlackBay 5B for the heavy stuff. I guess it all depends on how hard you play.
depends on what I'm playing and the stick. I use jazz sticks for jazz (obviously) and those can last up to 5 months for me. For rock I still use fairly thin sticks that an inexperiance jazz drummer might think were suited for jazz but the tips always break before I ever do any real damage to the center, this is anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 weeks, though sometimes you buy a poorly made pair that shatters in a week, but no matter what the second the tip is damage I toss the sticks because they don't rebound the same anymore and it bugs me to no end.
