Re: Looking for new drumsticks as a beginner
It's really about personal preference but I suggest a nice thin stick for beginners so you can hold it comfortably and learn control.
I use the ProMark signature Mike Portnoy 420's a lot as they are a longer yet thin light stick.
Honestly though it depends on your hand size too.. you could have magilla gorilla hands and we wouldn't know... or you could be a tiny person with tiny hands?! Who knows?!
Best bet like mentioned above, go to the local music store and one by one try them out for your liking.
