    Check out Quad Logic by Bill Bachman. That book is every quad player's bible, and it has helped me immensely.

    I go to my local drum shop and purchase my sticks. I like to touch them before I buy them ;-)

    Quad logic is where it's at. I'd also heavily suggest Nick Werth's website if you are more advanced. Anything you can find on youtube by Bill Bachman will help a lot. Just focus on the basics and make sure your left hand looks as natural as your right, especially if you are used to snare.
