double end zildjin absolutes usually.

i may change to 5a or 5b vic firth or pro mark, wood tip.

i been slowly weaning down in size, i used to use marching sticks for loudness, now i want more volume control.
I fought for world titles in boxing, karate, I fought bar wars, street corners, most everything living and half the stuff dead,ain’t nobody bad, I know, I looked.......

Pro Mark 747 rock - apparently the same as Neil Peart, but that's nothing to do with the reason I use them. I've always been a big hitter and spent years searching for a tough stick that felt nice. By a process of elimination I found 747s.

I did have some Dave Lombardo 2B (Pro Mark) signature sticks a while ago which felt nice, but they broke after a month's hard labour. Oh well.

I brought a pair of black drum sticks a while back cos they looked pretty mean. Problem with them tho is the black paint they use on em can make them slippery and they mark your cymbals and snare alot...
