5B's: Good & Extremely Light
by William written 2 months ago
I've been beating on Drums off & on for a few years, just for fun. I've watched a few instructional videos, and only recently, actually, taken my first lesson. So, I would hesitate to even call my self a novice. Therefore, I don't have enough of a delicate touch to describe things like, balance point, deflection, etc.
I use "American Grip". I, also, play on an old set of Roland Mesh Head E-Drums, so I cannot speak to their particular sound or tone, nor how long they would last on Acoustic Drums. Additionally, many years ago, I broke & dislocated my left hand in several places, and when they set my Ring Finger it is straight, but rotated slightly incorrectly and when I grip simething it leaves a gap from my middle finger, and slightly over laps in my pinky, and my ring finger doesn't close completely.
Therefore I can't really cradle the butt of the stick with those 2 fingers, evenly. Fatter 2B sticks are easier for me to hold in the front part of my hand, but are too heavy.
These are even lighter than my Ahead Lars Ulrich Sticks. Great for fast notes, but less feel/swing than I prefer for slower or more heavily grooved songs (which is always the trade off with any sticks). My natural correction for this is to make longer strokes, and feel like I need to put more force into them. However, then I'm more likely to get tangled up cross sticking, or hit my mic or something else.
THE BEST THING IS THAT SIMPLY FLIP THEM AROUND BACKWARDS, & THEY BECOME SUBLIME FOR NORMAL SPEED TO HEAVIER GROOVE SONGS. THEY ARE STILL LIGHT ENOUGH THAT I CAN PLAY FOR 3-4 HOURS, UNLIKE WOOD STICKS THAT GET TOO HEAVY THIS WAY.
The rounded butts work excellent for this.
I still want a Fatter 2B stick, and can't wait for them to be released!
Customer service is excellent & beyond reproach.

My boyfriend is a musician and I normally never try to buy anything related to his craft because I am not really knowledgeable about instruments and their supplies. I took a chance and bought the 5b bamboo drum sticks and he was really impressed! He's all about quality and was excited to have drum sticks that will last for a long time. Thank you so much for offering these great items!
