Drum Sticks and Mallets
Brands We Carry:
Some tips on Choosing Sticks I have found helpful:
Round bead sticks or acorn tip sticks bounce better and make roll quality cleaner.
Flat tip and plastic or aluminum tips are generally used for drum set.
Length and diameter of sticks are best determined by what feels comfortable to the individual player.  Along with weight the above also helps determine dynamic ranges potential, ie, a thin stick will not last if played at fff, where as a thick stick may not be helpful if playing mf or softer.
I usually start my beginners with Vic Firth SD1 General sticks.
Always buy quality brand name sticks for durability and consistency of quality.
