sticks take an extreme beating as I am a very hard hitter, they last long. I usually use the blue as I like the finish on them better than the black, but MF does not carry the blue nylon tip, which I just don't get...they have the wood and nylon 5a in blue and the wood tip 5b blue but not the nylon so I had to go with black.

I use the 5a sticks with my electronic kits and get the red.again great durability and long lasting.

Having moved to a smaller stick after some time on 55Bs, I was digging the newer offerings from Zildjian, because their 5As felt light and well-balanced in my hands. I saw these wood-tip models on sale at MF and decided to pick up a few pairs, with a four-gig weekend coming up.

They feel very light and seem to play themselves. The lightness almost feels like you've broken them and I found myself checking and rechecking them. At the end of the first two gigs of the weekend, I found that the vibrations of playing had transmitted through the sticks more than I was used to; my thumbs were numb. I switched to a pair of nylon-tipped sticks for gigs three and four and the issue did not resurface. I think it's because the hickory in these sticks seems to be a bit drier than in others.

    Comments about Zildjian Hickory Series Black Drumsticks:

    I love these sticks. I've tried many other sizes and styles of sticks but I prefer these over all of them. The weight is perfect, the sound is perfect, I love how they feel in my hands. I play alternative rock. They aren't the most durable sticks, they really get torn up quick on the cymbals, but I'll keep buying them because no other sticks compare.

        I got these sticks about two months ago and they're pretty good. My only complaint is that when ever they get a dent or scratch it really sticks out cause of the black paint.

        Comments about Zildjian Hickory Series Black Drumsticks:

        So I'm a rock/funk/jazz drummer, and i've been using the same set of the wooden tip zildjian jazz sticks for years now and have to say that i absolutely love them, grant it my style of playing is not that heavy, and i like to tape the top half of my sticks for more weight and a slightly more forward center of gravity, which may or may not have helped keep them from chipping off too much. After a few years i have noticed the head degrading from use but hey, all in all they've a nice feel, good weight, and a solid build.Plus their black and that's awesome, and mine are still black after years of use.

        By Leah

        Comments about Zildjian Hickory Series Black Drumsticks:

        I play rock and heavier music. these sticks aren't made for that. I have the nylon in 5A and the first day i used them one broke, i opened up my other pack and both are ready to be shattered. They're extremely comfortable, but really, they break instantly. If i played jazz and didnt hit so hard i bet they would last longer. but if you play rock music or heavy metal i wouldnt go with these. also they leave black marks on everything you hit, but that's just because of the paint.

        Comments about Zildjian Hickory Series Black Drumsticks:

        I bought the 7A sticks were great althought I don't like how the black scrapes off of the stick on to the cymbal, other wise mine lasted for a month, the people that say they suck and don't last that long, its just how you use them.Otherwise pretty good sticks.

        Comments about Zildjian Hickory Series Black Drumsticks:

        These sticks were in my Christmas stocking a while back and they've been in the bottom of my stickbag for a while now. I actually used them on the set the other day and they felt alright, but the 2B was a little thick for my style. Also, I don't like using them on my set anymore because my cymbals are rimmed with a thin line of black paint

        DON'T EVEN BOTHER THINKING ABOUT BUYING THESE STICKS. They are junk. I had them for 2 weeks until they broke. Zildjian makes amazing cymbals but horible drum sticks. I got ahead sticks and they are pretty good so far.

        I got these drumsticks for christmas. I play all metal and heavy stuff, it may just be because i am a heavy hitter but i mean these sticks lasted for maybe a week. The paint also marked up my good a series cymbals, left black marks. Overall terrible DO NOT BUY!
