OVERVIEW

Get a grip!

Great for beginners and advanced players alike. These sticks can take a beating while keeping your hands from getting tired by doing the gripping for you. Fantastic balance, feel, and sound. Cool looks, too. The innovative black DIP coating, developed through extensive research and development with top percussionist Marc Quinones, provides a great grip on the drumstick and a unique stick sound. Every stick is hand-inspected after final shaping and paired according to weight. Every drummer needs a pair or 3!

I play an electronic set due to space and noise restrictions and these sticks are perfect for electronic sets. The impact makes just enough noise and has a very good rebound. These sticks are very lightweight and almost give the feel they're cheap or break easily, but this is not the case. These sticks lasted far longer than I expected and they only cracked because I got angry and broke them. The only drawback is in the grip that sets these sticks apart from others. The grip will tear away and seemingly disintegrate over hours and hours of playing. While the grip is there, it is very functional. The grip feels like a nice even layer of electric tape, but a rubbery feel and better grip. I just ordered another pair yesterday with a green grip.

First I bought a pair of 5a nylon tips to try these out. I was impressed! Jammed on them every-so-often when I needed an extra ping on my ride (my main play is on a wood tip stick). The next time I needed some new sticks I picked up two pairs of the 5a wood tips. First session I played with them, about an hour in... SNAP! It was the one in my left, which was only hitting the snare and toms! I don't rim shot, so no clue there. The next pair only lasted about 2 sessions, snapped on the crash ride. A week later I snapped another the same way. I don't play much (maybe 3-5 hours a week), but I am a heavy hitter. Went back to Pro-Mark American Hickories and I'm getting a month or two out of them.
Love the feel and the wax dip keeps them glued to your hands.
Snaps in half easy.
In the range of all other sticks I guess.

        Comments about Zildjian DIP Drumsticks - Black:

        These sticks are well balanced, and durable. The coating allows for better grip but also reduces the amount of vibrations that travel back into your hands. I will definiately be buy more of these in the future. Only minor con is that the coating does start to rub off after being used enough times.

            It's pretty good drum sticks, nylon head make the sound get very splash and bright and the rubber handle make it more stick in your hand. If you want to find the drum stick that handy and sounds good, this is not bad idea at all!

                  The dip end of these stick didn't last very long on my last couple pairs; Once the "rubber" coating wears through, they are worse than a regular "bare" stick because the rough edges of the worn rubber can cause blisters.

                                  I have over the years(about 60) used cheap drum sticks, whatever i could find that were cheaper by the dozen, so to speak. Several years back, I decided to try something a little more $$$, and tried the Ziljian stick, seeing that I use their cymbals. I found out that I wasted a lot of good years playing with "cheap" sticks, and these new ones where just a lot better. Feel, sound, and they last quite a while. In the last 6 or 7 years I have only had 2 sticks actually break. I usually retire them when they get a little chewed up. Well worth the price. I will never buy cheap sticks again, the Ziljians are really good sticks. DWS
