I've been using Nova Sticks for years now. They are made by Vic Firth and I get 12 pairs for such a low price. I don't break sticks like I used to and rarely break these in two. These are my first nylon tips for many years too. I'm looking forward to using them but I have several pairs left from my last dozen.

These sticks are truely little more than a "stick". There is almost no quality matching of tone, weight, balance point, or stick circumfrence. Since I received a bulk pak of these as a gift from a relative (my wife) I felt obligated (required) to at least use them. Thank goodness they are finally gone!

Almost every stick has a radically different characteristic than it's sleeved partner. You will best be served by attempting to re-partner (and mark) the entire batch on your own. These are the first sticks I've ever owned that required including curvature as part of their sorting properties. Almost every stick had some degree of warping effect ranging from a slight bend on up to won't even roll across a table with a good push.

For anybody even remotely serious about percussion, please, don't waste your time with these as you definately will be very disappointed. However if you're a beginning percussioninst on a budget or even an elemenetary school music director, these would be just fine. While these sticks do have the durability, and ocassionally the weight of a set of "pro sticks", I would have to classify these as little more than a "toy" due to the lack of consistency manufacturing and pair matchings.

    Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

    Good quality drumsticks, but recently the price has been going up somewhat, that in the near future it may not be such a great deal, unless they are bought during times that discounts and or special prices are available.

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      Unless your super snobby about your stick weight, size ratio, balance distribution, etc. these sticks are great to keep on hand. I used to play with 5Bs, but as a super heavy hitter, i up-sized to the ROCK sized sticks hoping the bigger stick would last longer. I took the brick of sticks and dumped them all into my stick bag that hangs from my floor tom and as i chip through sticks i just reach over and grab one as needed. However i have noticed that with the bigger ROCK sticks that i don't have to hit has hard as i used to because the bigger diameter of the ROCK sticks gives me more surface space to work with, so in essence, i use less sticks because now i don't have to hit them as hard to get my big rock sound. The quality varies from stick to stick but they work like champs for the average guy.

                          Ive been using Nova sticks for 11 years now because they're straight, durable, with very few if any cosmetic flaws. Why pay twice as much if they're going to be used heavily playing bars and events? Çonsistent quality makes them the best value for me. Check out their DVD; it will show you why these are better than other budget sticks. I'm a Nova/ Vic Firth player for life.

                            I've been using Nova Sticks for years now. They are made by Vic Firth and I get 12 pairs for such a low price. I don't break sticks like I used to and rarely break these in two. These are my first nylon tips for many years too. I'm looking forward to using them but I have several pairs left from my last dozen.
