    When drummers are away from their instruments, which is quite often, they often resort to air drumming. Although often distracting to others, playing air drums provides drummers with a mental practice session that can help a great deal.

    Without a doubt...Regal Tip 5B nylon. They feel like an extention of me. I'm not sure where I stop & the stick begins.

    I'm a Vic Firth 5B guy. I also use a lighter stick for smaller jazz stuff or light volume sets. I got hooked on the Ayotte Londoners but they're hard to find anymore.

    Why don't you just use 2 different type of sticks? Then you woudn't have to keep replacing them.

    That's cool. Have you thought about trying to make yourself get used to a larger stick? That might be the answer. You probably just need a larger shoulder than what you're using.

    For hard rock & metal, I use Regal Tip Quantum 3000's, and for more jazzy/fusion, I use 5A's for more definition on the hats and ride.

    I love brushes. Some "feels" require them. I practiced exclusivley with brushes for a couple of months. When I went back to sticks, I could do softer & ghosted notes that I couldn't do before. Everyone should brush up on 'em (I just couldn't resist )
