    Hear any difference in the tone from the ones you were using before? I was thinking swithcing to the ProMark Japanese White Oak but @ $9.99 a pair had me thinking twice.

    i didnt really notice a real change in the sound, but i do like the way they feel a little better. supposedly they're sturdier too, not that i'm much of a stick killer.

    I'm comfortable with three different sticks.....

    1. SILVERFOX hickory 5A's (my main preference)
    2. Vater Studios.
    3. Pro Mark Hickory 5Bs

    I've heard lots of great reviews on SliverFox sticks. I actually watched a "How It's Made" where the SilverFox drumstick company was featured in the show. They match each stick with the equalivant tonal characteristics. That's pretty cool in my book!

    Btw, I really like Scott Johnson Tenor sticks. Pro-mark tenor sticks are great for scrapes and crossovers.
    thats exactly what they look like. and guys, just to clarify, this is a MARCHING stick thread.

    Ok. You'll definately find that those sticks aren't really great for scrapes, but your crossovers and skanks build up very nicely with them.

    I chimed in since this thread looked pretty dead. I don't march but I use the Promark DC3S for practice pad work. The heavy weight enables me to build up muscle memory and my double strokes have improved alot. I know those in marching band are a select few but there are some applications as far as sticks are concerned that crossover to those of us who don't march. Thanks!

    I play Tenors so I just started using the Bill Bachman Signature "Billy Clubs" and I am really starting to enjoy using them. But for snare, I started using the Jeff Queen signature series and those are real nice.

    I use vic firth magnums for practice on the pad... They've done wonders for me, it's like doing rudiments with hand weights. Wonderful sticks too. I'm also getting 2B vic firth vic grip nylons for practice on the set. Theyre very good as well.
    So itchie, how did the kick sound?

    I usually have different sticks for different times and genres of drumming. For Rock- Vater Los Angeles 5A, for school band- Vater Fusion 7A preferably, for metal- Zildjian Back Beat 5A, for school praise band/chapel ensemble I have Promark Cool Rods, and for just practice I have some generic sticks.

    Right now I just have a pair of Vic Firth Corpmasters for marching. Everything else - basically jazz band and any concert piece where I need sticks - I use Vic Firth 5A's. Work great for me, wouldn't mind trying out some other marching sticks though.

    I may be getting a Snare and like Pro Mark's DC series sticks but was also looking at the flared handle sticks I think VF is making them. I'm pretty sure the ones I was looking at said it was a tenor stick but anybody use those for snare?

    How long have the flared handle sticks been out?

    Zickos, pretty cool about the Orange Bowl. 1968! when football was better. I found this, there's some band members at the end of the video.
