Every drummer has their favorite stick. This is mine. Pro Marks are consistent, and the 5A is my preferred size. I like how the nylon tips sound on cymbals, and I've been using these for decades. This particular 5A I find to be well balanced, and they fit like an old pair of jeans!
The Stick I Use
I've used ProMark sticks for 25 years -- since I started taking lessons at age 8 to using them on tour and playing in worship bands. I've used 2Bs, 5Bs, and finally settled on the 5As. I couldn't be happier with the 5As -- perfect balance and just the right stick for me. ProMark makes the best stick.
