I have a few pairs of these lying around in my basement that a friend brought over. Yhey're very light compared to other drumsticks. they almost seem porous... and they put a weird coating over the drumsticks to make them last longer (since the wood has such little density). yes they last about as long as a normal drumstick pair. not quite, but almost. sure, you can hit drums with them. but there are 3 flaws1) like I said, they're light. too light. I like having more weight behind the stick, but that's just my oppinion.2) the head of the stick (I got 5a wood) sounds AWFUL on ride cymbals. wayyy too muddy.3) I use hearing protection, which makes me play louder. I play verry loudly. when you hit hard, THESE DRUMSTICKS HURT! yes, they hurt. they vibrate excessively and make your hand sting after about 10 minute of heavy playing. especially with rim shots.my oppinion - have 2 or 3 good pairs of drumsticks lying around so you can actually 'play' with. if you really wanna have a ton of backup pairs for whatever reason, then sure, buy these, but don't expect to be good. too light for rock, too sucky sounding on the ride for jazz, and they just hurrrrrt.

    Comments about Musician's Gear Hickory Drum Sticks:

    I tend to break sticks period no matter the make/model, that being said, if you are fine with frequent changes like between every third or fourth song, these are just fine. Rim shots sound great. The tips are obviously the first to suffer and the stick tends to split about the same place at the point of complete failure.

      A Real Working Drummer

      Ask me a question

      Comments about Musician's Gear Hickory Drum Sticks:

      Come on now! If you are "Working Drummer" and trying to make ends meet, these are an excellent buy! I have had stick endorsements (and currently have a drum endorsement), but when you buy your own equipment every little bit helps ! What do you expect when you are paying 84 CENTS for a pair of sticks verses 6 to 10 dollars a pair of sticks! I have ordered multiple orders of these sticks but what helps is calling in the order and asking the representative what types of sticks are available and they can assist you with your order. No, all of them are not perfectly round. Yes, sometimes the tips come off. But I have had tips come off of Pro Mark, Vic Firth, Regal Tip, and Vator sticks and I paid five times as much! These sticks are a working drummer's dream come true!

            I've been drumming for 8 years. I play alot of different styles of modern metal. I was going through a pair of sticks each practice. I must say I was quite surprised when I sat down with these sticks...Yes the quality is not up to par with vic or vater, but I don't believe they're marketed to be. These are a great practice stick for someone on a budget. However, I do not recommend these for shows or in the studio.

              I got through sticks like crazy, so I'm not overly concerned with quality. Sticks feel ok, didn't break right away, and at just over a buck a pair, even "sticklers" get it, can use them for back ups!

                One comment said they have no tips, but they do have tips. They are small tips and glued on, but they are nylon tips. Some of the comments are that they are not well made, but if you want high quality sticks, you have to pay for high quality. These are bulk.

                  the normal wood tip sticks are great sticks! but what they dont tell you before you buy them is that the have three different types of sticks. nylon tipped, normal tipped, and a very small tip. the nylon tips come off, and the small tips dent and break heads. you don't have a choice of sticks, you just get what's available at the time.

                  Comments about Musician's Gear Hickory Drum Sticks:

                  After buying three pairs of Vic Firth sticks at the local GC and breaking all three pairs in a week, I decided to get something cheaper. The VF sticks broken clean in half after about ten songs of heavy hitting (keep in mind I play disgustingly hard for performance reasons, and I don't recommend playing drums that way).I bought the 10 pack about two months ago, and I've yet to break a stick in half. They chip and chip and chip and chip until the stick's diameter is cut in half at the taper, but not one has broken yet! They lose some bounce after a while, but still very playable, and just fine for practice.Crazy good deal for the quality.

                          I bought two packs on a SDOTD to give away 1 package to a kids performance group and to try out 1 pack on my own.. The sticks were all the same type (wood tips), straight with no markings on them. They look to be 5As. I used them in a P&W group and they played just fine on crashes. Haven't really dug into a jazz ride with them, yet. Overall a very good set of sticks and a great deal for the money.
