If you're new to playing the drums, you might be wondering why drum sticks that vary in size are labeled with a single number and letter. These numbers and letters are assigned to represent the stick's size and application; generally, higher numbers signify a smaller circumference while lower numbers signify a larger circumference. Size 2B drum sticks are a very popular type: as their letter suggests, these sticks are designed for "band" applications and their larger tip is ideal for heavier hitters.
If a size 2B drum stick is what you're after, you're in luck: all of today's most respected drum stick brands specialize in 2B drum sticks, including Ahead, Vic Firth, Promark and Sound Percussion. Speaking of Promark, their Natural Hickory Drumsticks are a top seller in this catalog. These sticks come to life through the Millennium II manufacturing process, and the result is a set of sticks that are incredibly strong and comfortable to hold.
Keeping in tradition with the best sellers, another stick pair to check out is the Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks.
