|Often when a
"non-drummer" wanders into our store and sees our drumstick
display, which holds about 6,000 drumsticks in almost 200 different sizes
from 6 different makers, they say, "oh my, why are there so many
different kinds of drumsticks?!" Sure, we try to answer with
some generic comments like "well, fat sticks are for Rock & Roll,
skinny sticks are for Jazz, nylon tips sound different on cymbals blah,
blah, blah, but the truth of the matter is the average person just can't
imagine there can be THAT much difference between drumsticks.
After all, you just use 'em to hit stuff right? Well, any drummer
with a few years experience knows how many different brands and sizes of
drumsticks they tried before they finally found ones that seemed just
right for them. The ones that felt good in the hand, had just the
right weight, balance and rebound, and made the drums and cymbals sound
just right for the music they play. Years ago you could walk
into your local music store and see a drumstick display on the counter
with all of about 6 sizes of drumsticks, probably the old standard
"7A's, 5A's & 5B's, 2B's and maybe one size of huge marching band
sticks. Well not anymore! Almost every name brand drumstick
manufacturer has between 20 to 50 different models of drumsticks made of
various woods which feature different diameters, lengths, tapers and tips
shapes, each meant to satisfy the likings of a different drummer who plays
a different kind of music.
At Peeler Drum Center we guarantee the lowest
prices on drumsticks, and if we don't carry the particular model you use,
we'll be glad to order some for you (in quantities).
