So Good

By Esteban Ramirez

from Colorado

These sticks are the best and lightest I have ever used. I used Vic Firth 5a for a really long time and one day I was looking around and noticed these in the shop.I was instantly intrigued and wanted to try them out. They just look cool and feel even better when playing any style. I must say compared to a lot of other sticks I have tried, these are by far the best and lightest. The also can withstand heavy hitting too and the barrel tip wont chip in half like other sticks.The only downside of these is the charcoal color does fade from where you grip but it is everyday usage and gives the sticks extra character. I would definitely recommend you give these a try and see you might just like them as much as I do.

excellent sticks!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

While looking for a lighter pair of sticks than my current Ahead aluminum sticks, i found the John Otto sticks and i must say i am impressed with the durability. The only downfall i see with these sticks is that they definitely aren't meant for hard players within the week the pair had broken.

For Hard Hitters

By Fxmusician

from Cleveland,Ohio

These are the best, most durable drumsticks I've ever used. They're extra beefy, great for really hard hitters, great for hard rock. Great feel, and tone, great response, perfect for my style of play. Try these, and you'll see, they're the best at any price.
