OVERVIEW

Impeccable sticks from the name drummers trust.

Made from only the finest American Hickory, with the famous Regal Tip finish, feel, and balance. Joe Calato developed the original nylon tip drum stick over 40 years ago. Regal Tip was the first company to install their own dry kiln so that they could control the manufacturing process from the kiln drying of the wood, to the matching and pairing of sticks.

Calato was also the first to upgrade the quality of the sticks on the market by grading them for straightness of grain, weight, color, and warp, and then match each pair.

This is a review of the Regal Tip wood tip drumsticks in 2B and 5B sizes. These sticks have been my "go to" sticks for a good 10 to 15 years. I've tried most of the major brands in 2B and 5B sizes and these sticks feel and work the best for me. The sticks have a long taper which give them a lot of rebound. The long taper makes the sticks feel fairly light which I really appreciate on a full 4-hour bar gig. It seems like other brands like my hometown favorites of Promark use shorter tapers which make sticks feel heavier. Keep these differences in mind when buying these sticks in 5B and 2B sizes. I can't vouch for the other sizes but I imagine they are similar. I also like the lacquer finish. To the guy that said these sticks are slippery, I'd suggest a careful study of your grip before dismissing the sticks. I've never found these sticks to be "slippery" in the least. My only beef with these sticks at the time of this writing is price and I'm sure it is a supply and demand issue.

These sticks are pretty bad. Everything that drew me to them ended up working against me. The claim that the more your hands warm up the better the grip gets didn't really apply to me. The lacquer on them seemed to make these sticks really slippery and only made them fly out of my hand. These sticks are said to be made of hickory but they feel really light. I'm used to slightly more weighted sticks (pro-mark, vic firth) and these sticks felt like playing with air. I have owned 3 pairs of the 5B nylon and each pair was a disappointment. I STRONGLY recommend going with a brand like pro-mark or vic firth or vater. These sticks really didn't cut it for me.

    Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

    I was recently in the market to find a new stick size after playing a Regal Tip 2B for many, many years. I wanted something slightly lighter, but still gave me the sound I was looking for on the drums and cymbals. I tried a variety of sizes from different companies that I thought would be close to what I was looking for....Vic Firth 5B, Rod Morgenstein signature and HD9, Vater 55BB and Regal Tip Metal X, 5BX, 5B and 7B. Sticks are a very personal thing and need to feel and sound just right for each individual player. The Vic Firth sticks were nice and seemed to have the best quality look, but the Rod Morgenstein signatures and HD-9's were just a tad too heavy, really close to the 2B's I was already using. The Vic Firth 5B's were decent, just not quite there on the sound on my snare drum (probably the tip). The Regal Tip Metal X and 7B's felt weird and I felt a lot of the impact and shock from the stroke with those. The 5BX was cool, but the acorn tip on the end of the 5BX didn't give me quite the sound I wanted from the snare and cymbals like the oval tip of the 5B did. The 5B stick sound was a little fuller and present. The Vater 55BB is decent, but all in all, the Regal Tip 5B wood tip performed the best for me personally. I already played Regal Tip sticks, so I was familiar with them and how they felt. I like the finish on them, it does help to prevent slipping when your hands get sweaty, another plus when considering the alternative brands. Although I would recommend them to drummers looking for a nice 5B weight stick, I would suggest experimenting with different brands before deciding for sure. What I like, you may not and vice versa. Good luck with your choice!!

            Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

            Im 42, been playing since I was 15. I play solid, learned early on to incorporate the rims into drum rolls as well as any basic rhythms; so my snare rim takes a lot of abuse; and obviously Im pretty tough on sticks. These REGAL-TIP JAZZ (nylon tips) are by far the best sticks Ive ever played with- they feel terrific, perfect length (5A), but not quite as fat as other 5As; the heavy lacquer finish on these sticks seems to add alot of extra strength. Every solid drummer needs a few pairs of these- they last forever, are perfectly balanced and really do seem to improve the overall sound of your drums. The only downside is they are very expensive.

              Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

              I'm a semi-pro drummer who is retired from my "day job" and I play in small venues with low volume. These sticks are great for all the styles I play, standards, jazz, pop, light rock and classic soul. My only comment on these sticks (not a problem)is that they are a bit large for my venues -- not in size, but in volume. No matter how light I play, these sticks really broadcast! They do everything a jazz style, hickory stick should do as far as clarity and rebound are concerned. However, my small venues require the Jazz-E (wood-sound nylon tip) and the wood tip Jazz. I find that I am even using the Jeff Hamilton Signature (smaller and shorter) sticks in a lot of my songs. This is my limitation -- not the sticks. If you want a perfect wood tip rock-jazz hybrid at normal to high volumes, the 8A is your stick.

                  I've tried almost every 5A and related stick from all the manufacturers and Regal Tips feel the best with my traditional grip: sticky enough to use a loose grip and balanced for my style.
