Let DownTo start with a little back ground: After breaking a set of Ahead Aluminum drum sticks i was in the market for a new pair, after searching for a while and deciding that i didn't want to spend 30 dollars for a new set i set out on a search for a new set of quality affordable sticks. After some looking around on the internet i found these stick on eBay and was very interested if this was the answer to my question. Upon research i found that other people have had good luck with this brand, so i thought why not.
Enter Sweetwater: with an unbeatable price of three dollars with free shipping, what's there to loose. little did i know what i was in for, or lack there of as it may be. Upon playing with the new sticks i broke them out right away to get a feel for my new toy. Twenty minutes later much to my dismay i broke the tip off. After trying to play with the newly broken stick i decided that it broke due to the small diameter at the tip. Pass another 5 minutes and another break. this time half way down the shaft of the stick. unlike all other broken wood sticks i have saw in the past this break was straight across the grain of the wood, not with the grain.
In conclusions: my high expectations for the sticks were quickly dismantled. the quality was just simply not there. i would not recommend these for anyone in the market, and any one who is thinking of buying them should reconsider.
