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:

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

        Love these sticks. Don't use for every song, but for good old rock and roll numbers they are a great attention grabber and fun to play and watch.

        Worth while, just a few downsides

        Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

        This product is a great addition to any to any drummers arsenal.There are good things about these sticks and there are things that I which were different.The things that are good about these sticks are that the light in them goes on when you hit the drums and dims out when you aren't using them. The second thing is that the tip is opaqued so that the light going up the stick culminates at the tip so it is brighter. The things that are bad are that these sticks are a little bendy. When you are hitting the drums they give a little bit so you have to over-compensate for this by hitting them even harder. Another thing that is not that great about them is that the screw comes loose at the base of the stick. Make sure to tighten them up as soon as you get them and before every time you use them. And the last thing that I have found that bums me out about these is that the don't completely turn off. They are always in a prone state so every time they are hit they are set off. So if you are carrying them in a stick bag and that bag is getting hit around, they are going to keep going off. Through all of these downfalls, they are a great product. When ever I bring them out the crowd goes mental. Every time I have done a solo I have used these and they have gotten a great response every time.

        Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

        These drumsticks are absolutely terrible. They Barely light up, and they are made with such cheap material. Even in pitch dark, the whole stick doesn't light up, just the bottom. And they only light up when they hit something and then fade out. The battery life is about as bad as the product. But I guess you get what you pay for.

        Red Light Up Sticks

        By Dave Lawrence

        from Saskatoon SK Canada

        Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

        See earlier comments.
        My son got a red and blue set for Christmas. They were on back order and came late which was understandable. A red stck broke the second or third time he used them. We thought he was playing too hard but a friend of his said he had the same sticks and one broke early on too. It looks like they don't stand up to regular drum playing. They look cool in the dark but I would not recommend them.

          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

            To all who are upset by these sticks, you should be aware they are not for true play. They flex wrong for normal play. They are for show and tell, demo, exhibition, stunts.....they would not hold up for full rock and roll gigging but every drummer should get some as a GIFT. (That's how I got mine...drummer relative to drummer relative)

                I Have had these sticks for about 3 years so far, i only used them a few times because i just simply HATED them, they are awful sticks! most drum sticks will bounce up after you hit a drum, but these dont they dont move when you hit a drum so they just screw up the sound! also, they are VERY bendy and will break easily, so with the same price buy some nice Wooden Sticks with nylon tips! not these! if you buy these, you are in for a dissapointment!

                Comments about Firestix Light-Up Drumsticks:

                They are fairly hearty and have endured plenty of rimshots and kitchen counter "drum-offs". The replaceable batteries is definately a plus, but the batteries do last a good while.
                While nothing more than a "neat" thing to have, I have to say that these things are pretty fun. Originally bought for my daughter who just purchased her 1st "starter" drum set, these sticks are a lot of fun and breaks up the monotony of the beginning learning experience. I will admit that I personally have enjoyed thumping around on various household counters/furniture in the dark with these.... but they are a fun addition to my daughter's drumming " extras.

                With any drumstick that has anything other than wood attached(in this case no wood at all) is going to feel and sou d different. These are no exception with no surprise since they include batteries and such.
                These sticks are very durable, but the lights inside may not be up to the drumming task. One stkcks light broke only 2 days after recieving which in itself is very disappointing since the lighting effect is fantastic. If that was fixed...definite 4 1/2 stars.

                    I would never use these throughout a performance, as they would never be my primary sticks. But the visual effect is impressive for solo or on a single song, especially in a low light setting. If you like to "put on a show" these pull that off well. There is a small screw holding the end of the stick (the battery cover) on. I find it annoying and slightly uncomfortable. Overall I am happy with the purchase.

                      These sticks are the real deal. I teach and perform, and these are fantastic for bucket drumming or even a drum line. If there is one minor criticism is the fact that dynamics are effected because the sticks are light and don't have the same rebound as wood sticks, but the way around it is to rehearse or practice with light weight wood sticks so that there is not a drastic difference when performing. They are much better than I expected because I was expecting more of a novelty type product.

                            One stick doesn't even light up.

                              These were purchased as a Christmas gift. Ordered two sets and one did not work. Customer Service Representative was so professional and easy to speak with. Immediately went to work resolving the problem. Loved working with this company. Ease of ordering and excellent customer service
