          Tried these for the heck of it.

          Says they're cosmetically blemished. Looked at all 20 of mine and only found that 1 stick is about an eighth inch longer than the rest. Thats it! No blemishes of any kind.

          These are the same exact sticks that Pro Mark makes and sells for 1O bux a pair. Only difference is these arent painted pretty with the logo and such.

          Oh, and the tips are pretty much spherical rather than oblong like usual sticks. Big wupp. They still work perfectly. Less likely to chip a tip actually.

          These are an awesome deal and I was pleasantly surprised when I got them.

          Now I can let novices jam on my kit all day without worrying about them widdling down one of my only good pairs of sticks.

          I ordered these on a whim - they were inexpensive, and I thought "if they're good, I'll use them; if not, I'll give them away." Inasmuch, I've already given most of them away.

          I've used 5A's for many years, and have found them to be pretty consistent across brands - though my go-to brand has been Vater for quite some time. These were described as 16" long, and pictured with an acorn tip. What I received are 15.5" long and have a SMALL pea shaped tip - not to mention that they are closer to a 7A thickness than 5A. That doesn't make them "bad"; it just makes them "not as described" and "not what I prefer". At least they were inexpensive.

              For sticks, i'm not one that needs a stick to be perfect. These work exactly same, but aren't marked with the logo.

                        I bought these for the drummer that I have played with on/off for the last 30 years. Good quality sticks, not high end ones, but great for practice. Another example of the great specials you can get on Musician's Friend's Stupid Deal of the Day! Thanks!!!!!!!

                            These sticks are great for my first-year percussionists, who are likely to talk their parents into much more expensive "cool" sticks. I have to convince them that before they "twirl" they have to learn the fundamentals.

                              These sticks are an excellent deal. I found no warped sticks out of 40. 1 stick has an irregular grain that looks like it might break early, but 97% good, usable sticks. They seem more like 7A than 5A though, which is fine with me.
