I have severe arthritis in my hands, but wanted to get back into playing the drums. I find it a wonderful stress reliever. I was using another brand of sticks, but read about the easy grip of the Zildjian "dipped" drum sticks. and after using the Zildjians, I'll not go back to the solid wood sticks. Very light weight, and my hands don't cramp. Love the nylon tips. Great sticks!! Very happy :")

      The Only Ones I Use!

      By Drummergirl4him

      from The Tarheel State!

      Comments about Zildjian Purple DIP Drumsticks:

      OVERALL AWESOME STICKS! I only use these sticks! They are really cool looking and just great sound to them when they hit the drums!
      The Dip really helps with my bad grip I have. If you have anything wrong with your grip get these sticks!
      The quality is good but after a while the dip starts to come off. But only after about a year or so.
      Great Value! I have tried to find them for less and cant! Musicians Friend is the only way!

                  First,, I love purple. The color makes the sticks very cool. The idea behind the DIP sticks is to enhance the grip. The purple is a material used to improve grip, and it certainly does that. I liked them so much, I sent for them in green!.

                    I would llike it better without the dip grip. Nothing bad about it, just personal preference. The only reason I wouldn't recommend is it's a personal choice.

                        I love these sticks. The rubber grips make them easy to hang on to, and I like the longer length of the Super 5A. They take a lot of punishment.

                              I bought these for my ten year old daughter, who plays snare in the school band. Hence the purple grips. I use the black grip zildjian sticks, all sizes, depending on the ap. Great sticks, last long, nylon tips stay put. Not much else to say here.

                                These drumsitcks are pretty useful. The dip deffinently helps me grip them. The only downfall is after a month or so of using them, the rubber will start to fall off.

                                I've got a pair of 5B's and 5A's, when I first saw that Zildjian was making sticks, I was a little skeptical. But the price is great, they have a lot better grip than normal sticks, the nylon tips give great cymbal bite, and I could not be more pleased with them.

                                These sticks aren't too bad. I use nylon 5A, and they sound nice on the cymbals and on the floor toms. These sticks make to high of a noise on the upper toms, and make the snare sound a bit strange. I would go with vic firth, or vater sticks.

                                I used to drop my sticks all of the time. I would use Vic Firth and they'd break within a month of playing. I've been using the same pair of these for 8 months now and don't remember dropping them once. They're great, definitely worth the price.

                                Maybe a fluke?

                                I recieved these sticks about 2 months ago, and after 1 day of use, the day I recieved them, one of them chipped at the top, and broke after an hour of use. I don't play hard either! And just today, 2 months after getting them, the second one chipped. Seeing these other reviews may be promising, so maybe mine were a fluke? I am still hesitant to ever buy zildjian sticks again though, I think I might stick to my reliable Vic Firths.
