ProMark Classic Forward 5B Raw Hickory Drumstick, Oval Nylon Tip
No 1 ChoiceBy: Gregory Orourke on 28 January 2022The Promark 5B Naturals (Nylon Tip) are a top class stick for heavy hitting. They have a nice grip. They're on the heavy side which provides safety they won't break by chance mid song. Compared to less expensive sticks, which are light and suited for the electric kit, they're a top buy and did the trick for an exhaustive day recording two tracks. There are other good drum stick brands like Zildjian (still have a 20 year old pair) and Vic Firth (drum mutes are fabulous), yet the ProMarks with US Hickory, the only wood for drum sticks, produced a neat and tidy sound. Apart from a cymbal stand, the sticks were all I purchased for recording day.(and a V Drink and two Pepsi cans!).
