      Found these about ten years ago and realized they addressed all my demands about balance, grip, weight and heft, and attack. I play everything from jam rock to jazz, progressive to bar rock and the Triloks do it all with me. I can't really remember the last time I played with another stick. The tips do erode a bit more easily than I'd like, but that's more than balanced out by their versatility and graceful power. Highly recommended.

      I have bought 4 pairs of these sticks. I thought I just got faulty sticks but I was wrong. These break within 1 month of light use, 2 weeks daily and, a few days if used in a gig. They are very good sticks but, sadly they don't last long.

            Nice sticks overall. I love the grip and balance point of the sticks, but they seem too light toward the tip for me. Good for a fast, softer style than a harder hitting one...so says the amateur novice ;) Rock on!!

            Comments about Zildjian Trilok Gurtu Artist Series Signature Drumsticks:

            I love Zildjian sticks! Although after wrist surgery the only sticks I can use painlessly and effortlessly are the Trilok Gurtu signature sticks. It would be awesome if Zildjian could make more sticks with the Gurtu grip and different tips. I thought they were silly when I was younger but now it's the difference in being able to play or not. I've used a lot of grip sticks and there all great in there own right and had I used those to begin with maybe my wrist wouldn't have gotten so bad but the Gurtu sticks are a godsend for my post surgery wrist.

              The only sticks I use

              Comments about Zildjian Trilok Gurtu Artist Series Signature Drumsticks:

              For my playing style, these sticks are IT! 7a gauge sticks are great for moving around the kit with speed and precision. "Normal" 7a Jazz sticks are too light, and for blast beats the lack of downward inertia causes fatigue. These sticks ARE heavier than your typical Jazz gauge, plus they are very well balanced and the fulcrum (sweet spot)is recessed so you can feel it with your fingers as your playing. If you play any sort blast beat related metal try out a pair, you'll love em!! Just remember they're Jazz sticks, so they will break if you don't know how to "handle" them properly. I typically will break a stick doing rim-shots during breakdowns, under heavy rim-shot conditions I break these sticks at about the same rate as any other name brand Ive ever tried. If your having issues breaking these, or any other stick, get a bottle of wood hardener from the hardware store and soak your sticks in it.

              Amazing Feel

              Comments about Zildjian Trilok Gurtu Artist Series Signature Drumsticks:

              These sticks feel amazing to play with. They have incredible balance and the thinner groove for your fulcrum offers a very different feel than any other stick. I like it because it allows you to play these lighter sticks but maintain a great weight balance. I hate light sticks because I have very large hands and lighter sticks have terrible weight balance for me. But these work very well. My only complaint, and I don't know how common this is or if I just had a faulty pair, is that I broke a stick the second time I played with them, and I only played with them on my electric drum set. Yes, they broke on my electric drum set the second time I played with them. So again, it could have just been a faulty pair. But as for the way these feel to play with, I'd say they're top notch.

              I love these sticks. They are amazing. They are extremely light. The only problem i have is when you first use them, since they are a dark wood, they marked my heads. And the grips are good, Iv never dropped them and they never slid in my hands

              You have to buy these sticks, they are simply amazing. When i bought my drumset (used) it came with a pair of these, i didnt use them for a long time since they looked pretty beat up, but once I got into metal, i needed something lighter since they were the lighest pair i had so i started to use them and found out they were extremely well balanced. They were light enough to move quickly, strong to enough to withstand a beating, and the grip thats included simply is amazing. I have never dropped these, and have never broken a pair. Go buy them now.
