22$ AUD for a set of Vic Firth 5B. I'm willing to get sticks that are better than mine for free or atleast way below their cost, because I like my current sticks.

^^ yeah unbranded sticks are usually pretty shitty. they're never the same weight...sometimes they're warped...but if you can dig through the bin of them and find a decent set, you can probably save a few bucks and not ose too much quality.

$22 aus on a pair of vic firth america classic nylon tip metal drumsticks. there 17 inch and .635 diameter, i play metal myself but a lot of punks drummers had a go of them at a show my band did and they were screwing stuff up cause there used to shorter light sticks, but i've been using larger sticks since i started being that my first sticks were american classic 2bn so im used to them by now.

$22 aus

22 bucks!!, do ya'll have high inflation or no trees in australia? arent there local stick brands where you are that are cheaper? i spent 35$ on a pair of aheads and felt the fresh sting of fire in my empty pockets, but thats an aluminum and plastic stick reputed to last a long time. id never pay that amount on one pair, shit man, id save up and buy a fuggin wood lathe, a chop saw and 2x4s and BE the local drumstick company if i were you.

please tell me thats just a price due to inflation, you guys are being robbed

I feel cheated.

i have no idea why the price is so high, that was the cheapest i could find them, it could be because could no one gets those sticks so i had to order them in, there are some local stick brands that are pretty cheap but i've broken most of those i use

I usually spend about six to seven dollars on Vic Firth 5bs. They're pretty much all you need.
