here's my calculation:

year 1 - 12 (3 pairs a year) = 36pairs

12 - 14 (1 pair a year) = 2 pairs

14 - 18 (16 pairs a year) = 80pairs

so far i've used 118 pairs of sticks!

Well, using that formula, I'd have to estimate somewhere around 4-500.

Probably like 9 or 10. I've only broken like 3 sticks total.

i've broken 6 sticks in my time and own about 4 pair if vater 5bs that i use for shows and whatnot.

in 2004 when i was touring a lot, i spent just under $1,000 on sticks that year.

this might a weird/stupid question but whatever. Is that weird that i don't break to many sticks?

I hit a rim shot every snare hit, so go figure. I buy the cheap specials from guitar center to afford it.

anyone remember vic firth DC-10s?? they could put up with the abuse (for a while).

I think I've only ever used about 10 pairs of sticks in 3 years or so. And 2 of those pairs are PRACTICE PAD ONLY! 1 slightly heavier than my normal sticks for a quick warmup, and 1 pair like rolling pins for full on practice schedule run throughs.
