Question Drum Stick question???

I was wondering.... I have a pair of those Ahead Metallica drum sticks and I saw some kit where you can buy ends and the tips for them, so does anyone know if half of the stick can unscrew or something because the part where you hold it is metal and then the other half of the stick is liek some plastic type of material and I didn't know if you can take the plastic part off? Please let me know, also what kind of other sticks should I get if I am just starting to play like what weight anda ll, and same with the heads, because I need new heads on my set and I wan't some Evan's but I don;t know what kind and liek they have 3 A and all, so please let me know. Thanks and Hail!!!!!

on the ahead sticks, the tips can unscrew, but u need to use a pair of plyers. u can take the plastic part off to replace it cause the plastic will crack. i recommend the ahead sticks. u should also try vater sticks. about the drum heads, evans are pretty good, but it depends on the type of music u play. i play heavy metal and death metal and i use aquarian drum heads. they are very durable. thats what i recommend for a heavy player.

Alright man, thanks a lot. My friend said something about like putting a Remo head with the liquid in them for the snare because the Evans for snares suck. But he said for the toms and all put Evans, just not the Snare. But thanks again man!

i use to play some real thick drumsticks (5B), till my friend let me borrow a pair of 7A's. Those kick ass, they're not heavy, they're not thick, you can play real fast without having to worry about the drumstick being to much weight to move real fast.

Hah, yeah man, I knew what he mean't, I was just being sarcastic. But I do suck at drums though, but I don't care I will get better eventually (I hope).

I used JonnyRabb 5B hammertip (or somthing like that) and loved them since they were a little longer than vicf's 5b's. but, can't get jonny rabb sticks in norway anylonger, so I'm back on the vicf. 5B nylontip sticks.
Have heard some rumours about jonny rabb being closed down or something....is this true?????

since when were 5b's considered "real thick"?, i've always thought of them as average.

your friend needs to get a clue. the 2 ply Evans st genera head with dry holes, is definately my choice of snare head, and i've played remos,aquarians, attacks, whatever, and i'm addicted to the evans.
as for toms, any two ply remos, evans or aquarians(currently using) will do for me.
and a super kick I,II, or III on any bassdrum, will make it sound great, even with nothing in it(pillows,foam, blankets, ect.).

I just use 2ply pinstripes. They work fine for me and feel awsum. As for evans, it all depends on ur feel. Ive got sum friends that are addicted to em, but they just feel diferent compared to remos.

2Bs are great idd, although for faster drumming (blasts f.e.) I prefer smaller & thinner sticks.

our drummer uses those ahead things, he got some new tips a while ago, you can unscrew them (you can also replace the plastic part)

they're heavy, they are big and they get launched out of your hands too fast.

our drummer broke 2 sticks an hour so thats why he got them, now he destroyed a couple of cymbals and yesterday he kicked through his bassdrum with his new iron cobra, ha!

yes, he's not really a subtle kinda guy.
