Concert Drum Sticks
If you dream of following in the footsteps of your drumming heroes, then a signature set of sticks may be the way to go. There's certainly no shortage to choose from, and with options like the Innovative Percussion Christopher Lamb Signature Snare drum sticks, Vic Firth Ney Rosauro Symphonic Signature sticks and Malletech Bob Becker drum sticks in the lineup, it goes without saying that some truly great percussionists are represented here. Of course, if you'd rather blaze your own trail, there are lots of outstanding sticks without a name attached, including the Vic Firth American Custom Jr. drum sticks, Ludwig Concert Snare drum sticks and more.
Are you looking for maximum versatility, to the extent that you'll be able to play all of your drums without even swapping sticks? In that case, make sure to take a close look at double-ended models such as the Vic Firth American Custom SD6 Swizzle B drum sticks. Or, if you want a stick that doesn't even need to be flipped over, check out the Innovative Percussion James Campbell Multi-Stick - its narrow beater-style felt tip is designed to make any drum sound great, allowing you to handle complex percussion music that involves playing multiple different drums with the same mallet.
Specialized or multi-purpose, signature or standard - the choices are all yours to make when it comes to concert drum sticks. The best options for you will depend on lots of factors, like your preferred stick weight, shape, and of course, the specific drum(s) that you play. Take all of that into account when you set out to choose, and you'll have no problem narrowing the field to a few top contenders. And who knows, once you get to that point, maybe you'll want to try them all out!
