I dont know about you drummers but stick selection is very impotant to me when playing. How about you? What sticks do you prefer, and for what style. me i like 5bn"s for rock and 7an"s for jazz, and even larger for groupies...ha ha
I use heaps of different sticks these days. Usually because I forget to take my own to lessons and have to use whatever is handy. I have regular drumsticks, timbale sticks, plastic repinique sticks from Bahia...you name it.
My favourite brand is Vater for drum sticks and Vic Firth for timbale sticks.
