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:

    I've been playing semi professional for the last 4 years. I've been using the Vic Firth NOVA's for the last 2 years. Sticks break, expensive ones, cheap ones. Some go fast, some take a long time. But for this price, it suits me well to break a pair of sticks every few weeks. I got a sweet deal on them the last time and ordered 2 bricks. I don't think I will change sticks again soon.

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      If you hate your money, buy these sticks! Seriously, out of 12pr, none matched. NONE! So, I matched as good as possible, then they barely make it thru practice. They break almost immediately...Wood tips break clean off...Failure along the grain. These sticks are brittle.

      I'm not a slammer. Cheap sticks like pulse usually last me a few weeks(3nites of playing/1-2hrs) and good sticks like Vic Firth last me even longer.

      These sticks are barely fit for firewood. You's be better off setting your money on fire than buying these sticks.

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      These do not hold up as well as other brands I have used. they fail mostly in the same exact spot right behind the tip. They have a heavy dead feel to me when compared to other brands. I thought I was getting a good deal but really find my self changing out a broken stick mid song often. I know all sticks fail at some point but these are the worst I have ever used. I do not like that and will never buy again.

      Not such a sweet deal

      By calvin woo

      from San francisco

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      Bought these for my son as practice sticks and was very disappointed. They were too light and broke very quickly. My son plays jazz and is not a hard rocker. He is an experienced player and does not abuse his equipment. The super sweet deal turned out to be sour grapes. I would not recommend this product.
      Sticks look good but looks can be deceiving. Weight was way too light for hickory sticks.
      Went through 12 pair in a week (cracked or broken).
      Initial cost was great for the quantity and supposedly solid hickory sticks (Vic Firth seconds) with only cosmetic blemishes, but I find it hard to believe that these were going to be full blown Vic Firth sticks if there were no blemishes.

      Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

      Ive been using Nova 5A Nylonsfor over 6 years. Money is tight and it just dosent make sense to pay for brand name sticks when deals like these are out there. These stick are hickory. Some will have small blemishes like knots but they always run straight and true. Excellent balance, bounce and weight. I tried the Goodwood in the same size and they just dont feel near as balanced. Rimshots sound good and they dont chip out too badly. Youll sooner split it in half than chip them but that all depends on the player as well. The only negative thing I can come up with is that these sticks will soak up hand sweat there upsetting the balance a bit. I gig with these sticks and practice too.

        Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

        I usually find myself breaking sticks at a somewhat quick pace so I thought I would just buy something cheaper so I could a few more pairs of sticks for my money. To my amazement this did not solve my problem at all. I found myself breaking one or two sticks a song. Mainly at the taper of the stick or also the tip itself breaking completely off. I wouldn't recommend these to anyone at all who actual wants to play for any length of time.

        Nova Sticks

        By kim siekmann

        from Georgia

        Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

        Though these sticks have a nice balance to them and response, even if you are a mild hitter you will turn these into tooth picks quick. I have had them shatter down the middle as well (from tip to bottom) they are what they are.

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

        I rated these high not because they are the best, but they are one of the best deals and good quality. These are good quality sticks. These are not as good as my Promak or Vics, but are great practice knock around, backup, and disposable sticks. These have been amazingly good sticks for the price. I have been playing for over 30 years and remember when even the big name sticks long ago (Promark, Regal Tip, etc) were not even near as good as these are. The manufacturing quality has come so far that even the no name/off brand (usually from a major manufacturer) sticks are quite good. There are some that are truly poor because the wood is cheap and soft so they break with very little use. Nova sticks are a MUST for every drummer to have around alongside your good sticks. These are a DEFINATE for beginning to intermediate drummers!!!
        Decent for the price.
        Excellent Value

          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.
