I've been using these for 5 years, and rarely broke one. I play in a "Beatles Tribute Band" and the 7a's are the perfect size and weight for all the tunes we do. If you are playing heavy metal, get some tree trunks, and bang away. If you play with some finesse you can use these effectively in songs from "If I fell", to "Helter Skelter".

Several years ago these sticks were as good as the name brands and cost much less. A great deal then. Then the price of name brands increased by 60-70% over the past couple of years and these now cost what the brands used to cost. The quality has also suffered. The weight of these sticks and their density is now noticeably variable, contributing to an unsatisfactory feel. About half of my 5 pair were also slightly crooked. I can no longer recommend these sticks at the current price. They could be throwaways for practice if priced much less. The fact that some other reviewers are satisfied with these sticks tells me that we consumers don't expect very much anymore.

Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

well, i am a vic firth fanatic all the way to the fulest extent, i got these at a deal at my music store when u buy a six pack of vic firth american classic. i broke all my vics within 3 months because i play like an animal, but then i faced an empty wallet:( so i had to resort to my sp sticks for a bit until i can get the 50$ to buy the almighty vic firths. they are excellent for the value and ive been playing on a set for 5 days and they havent broke. (VERY SUPRISING) anyway if u hav an empty wallet like i then get sp for now, but when u save up go with vic firth!!!!!! VIC FIRTH RULES!!!!!!!!!!!

Not bad

By David Church

from Wisconsin

See all my reviews

Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

I buy a few pairs at a time just to have extra.
Your basic nylon tip
I play hard so either way I break sticks almost daily. They feel a little lighter compared to Vic or Pro but that isn't always bad.
Can't beat the price, I've used cheaper sticks that break almost instantly, these hold up for awhile for me but for a lighter hitting player they would last a long time.

Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

last a long time, feel good, and are the cheapest hickory sticks you can get.
light and sound good
weighted perfect, sound great, last a long time, even with a heavy hitter like me
these are better than vic firth american classics, which is what i used before i found these, and are half the price.

    Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

    I figured I'd try a set of these sticks since they're cheap. Well, they're cheap for a reason. They were rough where you hold and I had to sand them. I usually buy Vic Firth sticks and after this mishap I won't stray again. These sticks aren't even worth the cheap price they sell for.

    These are very good, basically Vater

    from Ann Arbor, MI

    Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

    I was in a store that sells these and compared each of the models head to head with the identical model Vater name brand sticks. They are identical, folks, down to the length, taper, tip, everything. The only things is that these have "Cosmetic Defects" like a mineral streak, knot or other wood discoloration. They are not necessarily computer matched (even though they are in sleeves), but most of them felt pretty good. By the way, the "Goodwood" sticks for sale here are also Vater "2nd's", but these (Sound Percussion) can be purchased individually, which is more convienient. If you like Vater, you'll like these sticks!

    Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

    I bought these sticks because I just needed a cheep pair to jam with some friends and I was very surprised with them. I am a VERY hard hitter and I expected them to break within the week and I had them for almost to months before they broke, I would definatly recomend these if your looking for cheep sticks with great quality, A+

              I bought these to see if the Rocks are the same size as Vater's Rock Pros and yes they are. The first pair I received were warped pretty bad. I contacted MF and they sent me a new pair ASAP. I used them at a gig Saturday night and they worked great. i just wished they sold them in nylon tip. They are the same size as Promarks 747 for half the price and the Promarks break quicker for me.

              I picked up a set of these for use with an electronic drum set used recreationally. They were used three to four times for 10-15 each session before one broke. This may have been a fluke and I didn't expect a whole lot for the price paid.

              Comments about Sound Percussion Labs Hickory Drumsticks - Pair:

              From my understanding, these sticks are made by Vader. I just started playing drums seriously, but I am a bass player of 20 years, and my current drummer has been using nylon-tip 5B's by SP and Vader. I use the 5B wood-tipped for my Simmons electronic kit and love em. Perfect weight and balance. Much better than the Zildjan sticks I've tried before.

              When we compared SP to the Vader equivalent, we noticed the SP sticks have a slightly narrow taper to the tip. Balance-wise, they've all been great (we buy them by the 8 pair packs). Think of them as more of a budget Vader stick, not as a generic stick. You can get 8 pairs of SP for less than 6 pairs of Vader.

                      I've been using these for 5 years, and rarely broke one. I play in a "Beatles Tribute Band" and the 7a's are the perfect size and weight for all the tunes we do. If you are playing heavy metal, get some tree trunks, and bang away. If you play with some finesse you can use these effectively in songs from "If I fell", to "Helter Skelter".

                      OK at best - just OK

                      Don't buy these unless you can pick them out yourself. These sticks need to be rolled to check for straightness and you need to look at the grain of the wood. Many times I've received warped sticks and dark grained mixed wood on these. Also they are not weight matched so you can get pairs that feel really strange to play with. Bottom Line: You get what you pay for. Buy Promark

                      If you are a hard hitter especialy do not get these sticks, I broke them all in 3 days. The value is awesome tho, if you want to just have a stash of back up sticks then these are them.
