Top Ten Best Drumstick Makescunningstunts
The Top Ten
Vic Firth hand-whittled the first sticks himself from bulkier sticks and sent these prototypes to a wood turner in Montreal. The two prototypes that he sent would become the SD1 and SD2, the first two models of sticks ever manufactured by the Vic Firth, Inc.. As Firth himself states: "It came out of necessity not of imagination or my ability to start a company.
Today, the Vic Firth, Inc. product line has grown from the SD1 and SD2 to approximately 300 products in its catalog, and the company manufactures 12 million sticks a year. -
brilliant. These are what I use - to be precise the american classic... the best
By far the best drumsticks in the world. I know it's only my opinion but in that opinion after playing drums for over 50 years and having tried every stick on the market, Vic firth are the best made, balanced, weight, always consistent. I use several models, depending on the gig at hand----Steve Gadd model----Steve Smith model---Extreme 5A---SD-1 Bolero---and I use the new 5B Rubber Tip Chop Builder and also the Thomas Lang model for the practice pad.

promark drumsticks company was one of the first drum stick companies in the USA. Founded by drummer Herb Brochstein, they were also one of the first companies to successfully market oak drumsticks in America. Promark now sells it's popular drumsticks (made of oak, maple, and hickory) to over 100 countries. -
It really depends on the Pro-Mark sticks you get, I am a very big fan of the Joey Jordison and Chris Adler Signature Series. The Joey Jordison and Chris Adler sticks are made from Hickory, I find this the best type of wood for drumming as they are strong, solid and are quality sticks that are really durable.
These sticks are so durable, and they are made in my hometown!
I will only purchase ProMark drumsticks. In the early days (back in the '70s) I found Ludwig to be the longest lasting best feeling sticks until they became almost impossible to find so I went on the hunt. After trying everything else made and going through sticks and money like crazy, I bought my first set of ProMarks. I couldn't break 'em! I'm a fairly heavy hitter playing hard rock and heavy metal. Now days it's ProMark only for the absolute best durability and feel. The 5A Hickory was my go to stick until I tried the 5A Oak. Now they are my favorite. I also like the 747 Oak for the extra heavy stuff.V 21 Comments
Other than cymbals, the Avedis Zildjian Company produces products such as drum sticks and other drum accessories. The Artist Series drum sticks allow these endorsers to personalize their drum sticks, and these sticks are sold to the public. -
Even though I am a Sabian user, and it's almost sac-religious to have I both of these. I love Zildjian sticks. I love the different kinds of sticks they have. Like the anti-vibes. It allows you to have those bigger sticks, but without losing speed, and the stick like it says, don't vibrate at all.
Zildjian is overall my favorite brand for drumsticks! They offer a larger variety of sizes a tips, they truly have something for everyone. They have a good weight distribution, along with a good gripping system. If you haven't tried a pair of Zildjian sticks try them, and I promise you will love them!
Great selection of sticks. You can almost customize them with whatever color and stick design and tips and woods. Great sticksV 10 Comments
While other "stick" companies also manufacture products beyond the drumming world, Vater's undivided focus is to give you, the drummer, the highest quality drum sticks, specialty sticks and drum accessories in the world. -
They have been around the longest, There sticks feel amazing and sound amazing too, They have lasted longer than any other sticks I've had, they are honestly the best sticks I've ever used
Vater Drumsticks for me make the best kind of drumstick that fits my expectations of a perfect drumstick. The best, response, tone, and feel of a drumstick I've ever used.
I own a pair of 5A sticks and they have lasted me for years now. Unlike Vic Firth, Vater sticks are affordable and unlike Zildjian, they aren't as brittle as ice. Pro-Mark sticks are good, but don't absorb much vibration due to their usage of oak.V 19 Comments
Ahead drumsticks are a product of Easton and distributed by Big Bang Distribution. They are quite unique and different than most drumsticks in the world. They have an aluminum core and replaceable plastic sleeves and plastic tips. This allows them to outlast normal wooden drumsticks by a long shot. Some would even say that they never wear out because you can constantly replace the plastic sleeves or tips with new ones instead of having to buy a whole new set of drumsticks every time. -
These sticks are amazing! Lots of fun to use and produce lots of power. Great for drum roles or hard cymbal hits.
I love playing with these sticks but MAN they're expensive! However one pair lasts you a very long time so it is worth it I guess.
Tico Torres, Matt Sorum, Lars Ulrich, Tommy Lee, and Rick Allen all drummer favorites of mine
And they use the same sticks, GO Ahead

The first Hot Sticks were created in 1979 and combined many of the features that would establish Hot Sticks reputation as leaders in drumsticks innovation. Not only were the original Hot Sticks the first to offer a variety of brightly colored models, they were the only major drumsticks that incorporated a proprietary dry grinding process to protect the integrity of the wood during production.
This history of RegalTip has just not been told to the younger generations. With the invention of the nylon tip, numerous patents on other products all shows their dedication to the industry. I've played them for 27years and sure, I've tried the others but I always go back to them. If you haven't tried their products, go find them, you won't be disappointed.
These guys should be number 1. They have the best feel at if any brand I've played. Something so unique about them. Hey, they invented the nylon tip, can't beat that.
Regal tip has a unique feel I like the 8a and have used them for years great sticks
Just got the Alex Van Halen signature model by regal tip! Great sticks that are un breakable!V 3 Comments
Although in my opinion Vic Firth makes the best drum set sticks, Innovative Percussion is by far the best company for sticks/mallets used to play any other type of drum. Innovative Percussion dominates it's competitors when it comes to marching snare sticks, marching bass mallets, tenor mallets, concert snare sticks, specialty drum sticks, mallets of all sorts, etc.
Best quad sticks I've ever used. Great feel, great balance, great match. Snare sticks are fantastic as well, though some can be a bit weighty when double taped, though it's personal preference and how badly you want to chop out.
If your a concert percussionist. You use innovative percussion. No questions asked
Innovative Percussion number 13?! They by far make the best drum sticks for everythingV 6 Comments
The colored drumsticks are made of Lexan�, a heat-resistant plastic widely used in today's business equipment and automobile products. It's tough construction offers great durability and they're perfect for novelty songs or showcasing a drum solo. -
Carbostick is a brand of drum sticks, it produces stick made up of carbon fibre, giving them a lot of resistance and a long life. Their cost is higher than wooden sticks, but the investment is gained over the duration of the sticks. -V 1 Comment
Actually really a line under Vic Firth, but they are almost a different make by themselves. Before I used Vader as my main brand, I still have my pair of Nova's, that I still occasionally use, that I really enjoy. Even though they are made by Vic Firth, they are unlike any of their other sticks and are almost a whole separate deal.
Amazing! They are made for hard hitters!
Same pitch and try to use it to see what is the difference to others...V 1 Comment
Motorhead? Saxon? Arch Enemy anyone? A lot of great drummers actually use these sticks. It's amazing that more of the well known drummers don't.
Seems to hold together the longest of the brands I've tried
While I frankly prefer Vater, Mikkey Dee of Motorhead has a signature model with Wincent which are killer!V 1 Comment
Mark my words, these guys will keep rising to the top. Arian Van Weesenbeek of Epica ad MaYaN uses these, and they're great. They may be new and unknown for now, but it's only a matter of time before they're being used to bang heads everywhere!
Each stick is Calculated, then the precise weight needed is added to achieve a balance point for maximum performance, resulting in a faster, better feeling stick that eliminates stick shock. This concept can be applied to improve all drumsticks. RB Drumsticks Immanently improves all drummers playing.
The Best idea & innovation ever. Increased speed, less effort, less motion pain.
Its does just make sense. By moving the center balance back to where you hold the stick, it gives a whole new feel to my playing. Best Sticks ever. See you at NAMM Dave!
