A great weapon for any drummer!

By Jay

from Alabama

Comments about Zildjian Backbeat Wood Dip Drumsticks:

The drummer in my band switched to this stick about 8 months ago, and the immediate responce is one thing: power. The downside: Not entirely for the unskilled. Capable of reproducing the attacks of a tipped stick, the added durability of the stick adds to its value even more. 4 Pairs of these sticks lasted about 5 rehearsals and a show, which is unreal, normally about 5-7 regular sticks would break during a practice. It took 2 days for him to break the first one! Also, as the stick wears thinner, it takes on a tipped shape which also aids of course in playing, and doesnt detract as a near broken regular stick would. 5 stars!
