OVERVIEW

These hickory sticks play just like premium sticks, but due to slight cosmetic blemishes, we can offer them for a lower price. These blemishes can include wood grain inconsistencies and other cosmetic irregularities. They are weighted evenly for balance and are finished with a thin coat of lacquer to give you a smooth feel.

A great deal on hickory sticks!

I bought the 5A size in the wood tip and also the plastic tip and both are decent quality, I like the weight and the feel of these sticks in the 5A size, the 5B size were too heavy and too thick for me but might be right for you if you play metal or hard rock all night. There were however a few duds in the bunch, a few were warped slightly, one was warped badly and one stick had serious grain flaws and pits in the wood that it looked like a termite was snacking on it. I liked that the neck of these sticks are thick enough to take some punishment. I've had problems with a few brands of 5A sticks that get too narrow just below the top or the tip of the stick. When these are on sale they are a great deal and time to stock up, at regular price still not bad but perhaps a little overpriced. Just keep in mind they are seconds but most of the sticks will most likely be straight and have no noticeable problems. I will definitely buy these again.

These sticks were offered at a very good price and I didn't have the highest of expectations. I expected perhaps a few rough spots and some cosmetic blemishes. Of the 12 sticks (6 pairs), 4 sticks were very high quality, 5 had minor issues (a little sandpaper works wonders) and 3 of the sticks were totally useless. One had an obvious split near the butt, one had a deep gouge and roughness in the handling area and the other was serious warped. I would call these sticks "factory rejects". There appears to be no quality assurance involved. I did complain by email to MF and to their credit (as usual) they made things right by immediately sending me two pairs of quality sticks of the same size.

    These sticks have some variation in color and a few minor burn marks from the turning process, purely cosmetic stuff. They are straight, not warped at all & have no cracks or splits. They will work just fine and are a great deal.

        Comments about Pulse Drumsticks 6-Pair Pack:

        Because I custom make fishing rods I decided to custom make drumsticks for our senior, low impact exercise program. I wrap sticks to each persons color choice and epoxy favorite logos onto the sticks. I have now done 18 pairs of sticks and sell them to members of our exercise group. I have also done the same with Senior High school marching band drummers using metallic thread in school colors. You offer a great product at a great price. Thank You. Ken Chisholm

          Had been using 2B sticks until recently but found the weight of the 2Bs to be heavier than what I needed. Was experiencing tingling in my wrists and started using these 5As and since then the tingling has gone away. For my use playing classic rock these 5As are perfect for weight and length. I'd recommend them to anyone.

            Ain't nothing wrong with these :) They feel and play just like your average name-brand sticks, and cost a sixth of the price.

              i bought these just for practice but, i have been pleasantly surprised at their durability. i tend to play the snare very close to the rim and found that i haven't broken nearly as many i thought i would given the price

                Some say they're cheap, but I say only the price. I've had many expensive sticks break prematurely. These wear down extremely well.

                For some reason they changed everyting.
                It's ligher and looks cheaper.
