Balls fell off

By Gerald Hawkins

from Austin, TX

The tips have small metal balls glued onto them to give them a "tiny stick" sound when playing. This is why I, and presumably you, were interested in this product. Well, guess what? The balls fell off for me after about 8-10 hours of total playing time, and I don't strike very hard; there were literally flying metal specs smacking me in the face (I think one landed in my tear duct, I kid you not) while I was drumming. They still function as brushes, but not the ones I paid for... Buy something else.

The Red Screech

By Adan Liendo

from Laredo Tx.

These brushes are good dont get me wrong; there powerfull, but lighter than sticks; You could still play loud and soft with ease. Only one thing that i didn't like about the Live Wire's was that the ball tip at the end of the brush and the metal it self would make a screech sound on the head (plastic and coated) and some times the cymbal. When i tried to "stir the soup" with them, it would ALWAYS give me that screech. Besides that annoying sound, these brushes weren't that bad of a purchase.

Great pair of brushes.

By Steve K.

from Chicago, IL

These things are LOUD. It's very easy to get a good tone out of them, and you don't have to work hard to achieve enough volume to play forte with a full big band without a microphone. The only negative I've found is that since the brushes do speak, they showcase every mistake you make. I wouldn't recommend them for a light combo gig, but if you're looking for a 'beefier' brush, look no further.
