The Buddy Rich sticks are the only one's I've ever tried that I thought were decent, but even then I'd rather use 8A's for jazz.
It all depends, I love Buddy Rich's sticks for jazz (though I think zildjian jazz is better) and Travis Barker is good for a more cadence sound (did I spell that right?!). My all time fav stick though is Carter Beauford's autograph from Pro-Mark.

I love & exclusively use Dave Weckl's, Vic Firth, Evolution stick with a wood tip. It's 2/1000th's of an inch thinner than a standard 5A & 16" long, nothing exceptional. But it feels good & has a nice orange color to it. :D

I used Jack DeJohnette for a very long period of time,and they are great...but that stick is more swing-kind and for groove rithams you have to turn it backward,and I don't like that. Now I use Vinnie Colaiuta Zildjian stick (D=0.595 ,L=15 15/16) and Vic Firth 5B (D=0.595,L=16)...For people who are using the Moller tehnique (as myself) I strongly recomand some of those sticks,as well as Dave Weckl evolution model and Vic Firth 55A ...

the steve gadd sticks are sweet....
I've been wanting to try those. I have the weckl sticks, which are nice, but they're a little too long for my taste.

Does the paint on the gadd's get all over the place? I have a fine red dust on my snare every time I play with the weckl's.

I sign my Pro-Mark TX707N's when someone asks for one, so I guess they are my signature sticks. :wink:

I don't use signature sticks.

I personally like playing with the Steve Gadd sticks from Vic Firth. The nylon tips are more durable than most and they are perfect sticks for the music i play

I steer clear of signature sticks...

They're expensive! I find the signature stick I like, and then find the non-signature version that resembles it for 3.00 per stick less. When you go through a pair of sticks each night, 4 nights a week, for a month you end up saving 48 bucks a month or 576 per year...yea I'm a drummer and can count higher than 4! Anyway, nothing against the quality of signature sticks, just to expensive.

I'm a big fan of the Pro Mark Carter Beauford 5ABs. The 5B's feel a bit too big sometimes... not always though, while the 5A's feel weak when i hit. It just made sense to go with something in between.
