They were fun for a while, but the screws in the ends became stripped almost instantly, and they had a rubbery attack... very noticable during jam sessions. The lights were cool tho when I would jam with my keyboardist friend (he had keys that lit up when he played) we'd set up some black lights and a strobe light behind me and go to town on some NIN and Tool jams and people who watched said it was a sensory overdrive. A bit pricey for sticks that lack attack

I got this sticks as a gift from a family member and immediately knew what they were. I've read many reviews about these sticks and basically decided to not buy them since I wouldn't ever see myself using them especially for the price for only one pair, but since they were a gift then I though "hey why not". When I first got them out of the package the literal first thing i noticed was the size of these sticks. THEY'RE BIG and heavy too. As in you wouldn't be using this sticks for very quick drumming at all. But i kept an open mind and i tried them out. Needless to say that I was very pleased by how they perform. They respond differently depending on how hard you hit and they fade out quickly after each hit which I really liked. They're truly great for solos and party tricks basically but they won't last from constant beating. I played with them everyday for about a week or two and the one stick broke. Kinda lame to have only one light up stick right?
In the end I do see myself buying them again just because they look so awesome but don't buy these expecting a very long lasting pair of sticks.

Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

These will definitely help you put on a good show. I got the blue ones because they're supposed to be the brightest. The drawbacks to them are that they're flexible and not stiff like wood, and that they sound a little like mallets. I use hickory 5Bs with a nylon tip, these have huge tips in comparison and have a softer strike as a result. The shafts are pretty close to 5B but taper larger towards the end. I would recommend them only for solos or the final song of the night.

            These are not for everyday use. They feel weird, and after reading other reviews I don't expect them to last. That said, I can't wait to use them at a gig! They look so freakin' cool when you are playing with them. Sure, they are a novelty, but a really cool one.

                Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

                Firestix light up drumsticks, they're the coolest thing you've ever seen in a performance. However the wiring is faulty, it can't be used in the cold and it can't hold up to a drummer's banging for hours. No it won't shatter but it will have dents and the handle may crack. I bought one of these and the very next day they broke due to faulty wiring. I wouldn't suggest these to anyone who can't throw away money for one performance. These are not made for practice.

                Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

                These sticks are wobbly, off balance, and the electronics break easily.
                This is to be expected though considering they are made of a kind of plastic acrylic. Though they are poor quality. They make drumming extremely fun and they make watching drummers more fun. with low lighting these sticks give the appearance of an invisible drummer. I have taken these to some of my performances and when i did, the crowd was more involved in my music.
                Though they feel off, I'm willing to use them in order to spice up my set.
                Buy these sticks
