Overview

Great for beginners and advanced players alike. These sticks can take a beating while keeping your hands from getting tired by doing the gripping for you. Fantastic balance, feel, and sound. Cool looks, too. The innovative DIP coating, developed through extensive research and development with top percussionist Marc Quinones, provides a great grip on the drumstick and a unique stick sound. Every stick is hand-inspected after final shaping and paired according to weight. Every drummer needs a pair or 3!

I've been using the Zildjian Dip 5A's for about three years, and I don't think I could recommend a better stick for jazz to heavy drummers alike! The thin rubberized coating prevents alot of the reverb from getting to your hands, especcially when used on cymbals. Also the coating makes it much more difficult to drop your sticks. The rubber doesn't last very long though. It can bubble up in some areas and peel off after a few long stretches of playing, but while it lasts it's a very comfortable stick.

Oh its still in my hand... wheres the rest of it? it broke? after half a song? oh... well thats weird. Ill just get the other pair i bought, these must just be faulty. (few minutes later) ouch, a piece of the stick just hit my face. Oh, it broke. The grips are a wonderful idea, and work well. But the sticks tend to vibrate a lot actually, and they break wicked wicked easy. I honestly would suggest not buying a pair of these sticks, at all. Try other methods to get grip. Maybe tape? All sizes and tips and anything in this series breaks easily like this. read the other reviews one of them at least mentions BOTH of his pairs breaking as well.

Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

The feel is amazing, but it seems that the sticks are shredding a lot faster than some of my other drumsticks. I have yet to drop one of these, the grip is off the charts.

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      I bought some of these about ten years ago and loved them then I had a more experienced drummer tell me they weren't good for my skills so I used other sticks and consistently lost a stick slipping out of my grip. I have recently been watching Jimmy Fallon and both drummers on The Roots use these. I think I'm in pretty good company if these guys use them (one of which is Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson featured as top drummer in the world)
      Get them you'll love them.

      Experimenting turned to success!

      By Bryant Seavey

      from Rancho Cucamonga, Ca

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      I kinda bought these on a whim just to try them since I was bored of the sticks I had. I used to use pro-mark shira kashi oak sticks in 5a, but these just kind of appealed to me for the grip and the durability, and also a referral from a friend. I originally bought these in a nylon tip just on a whim, but then I kinda just fell in love. The feel and the sound of these guys is great! I haven't had any problems with them since i bought them about 3 months ago. They're still in great condition after all this time, and I'm a pretty aggressive player. I've seen some reviews saying that the rubber comes off, but it hasn't happened to mine yet. There aren't any signs of it, either.

      Sticktastic!

      from Hampton Ga.

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      Zildjian 7A Wood tips are the perfect stick for me! I love the way they feel when I'm playing. There light weight,the grip works great and the round shape of the tip is better for the heads & tone. I would & will recommend these sticks to all drummers.

      Rubber dip handle = WIN! Can't ask for a better stick

      By Artem Brayson

      from Jacksonville, FL

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      I've been using these Zildjian DIP sticks for quite a few years now and simply refuse to use anything else. They are designed absolutely perfectly, in my opinion. I recommend them with the nylon tip.

      If you need a little extra grip

      By Nathan Kelley

      from Minnesota

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      These sticks are perfect if you get sweaty hands or you drop your sticks a lot. The rubber coating is grippy without being tacky or sticky. They can take a lot of abuse and last quite awhile. They also look clean and went above my expectations. if your sick of dropping your sticks and want ones that last these are for you!

      Nice Sticks

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      I've owned these sticks for a week and I know I won't be using another brand anytime soon. The grip is amazing; as long as you're making contact, they won't slip. Awesome sticks so far.

      the sticks are allright

      By Tim

      from Teaneck NJ

      Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks:

      I bought these sticks because I would keep dropping my sticks. when I got them they felt very light so I was a little nervous that they would break. I was wrong. the sticks are good quality and they do help with your grip. a problem for my however is that the sticks are thick and that affects my playing and the sound. all in all these are pretty good sticks but not the best. you if need good grip I would recommend the Vic firth Vic grip sticks or grip tape to help with your grip. but if you are looking for a good stick that is light, durable, and you dont mind the size then you should take a look at these.
