Sticks

Drum sticks are available in a number of sizes which is determined its number and letter. For beginners, the stick's number is more important (and noticable) than the letter, which is for more aquired tastes.

 

- The higher the number, the thinner the stick, 7A's are suitable for young beginners and experienced jazz players.

- The letter refers to the taper of the stick's shoulder. An A stick has a more gradrual taper than a B. 

- Most sticks have a Wood or Nylon tip. Nylon tips produce a brighter tone whereas wooden tips are more durable.
