Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zildjian 7A Nylon Black Dip Drumsticks (Electronics)
I've tried a lot of sticks - and have even made my own - but this is my favorite. I don't like to squeeze sticks too hard and as a result I loose sticks all the time. I'm lucky I haven't put an eye out the way they go flying sometimes.
I don't like gloves, hand stuff or tape. I have tried coating from the hardware store (the type you dip tool handles into) but it eventually rubs off. I have had some success with roughing the sticks with really coarse sandpaper, but that leads to blisters. With these DIP sticks I can move my grip to a balanced spot on the stick and after a 5-6 minute song - it is still there. Using a matched grip, I like to balance my left stick on my pointy-finger and 'tiggle' it with my thumb to make a light roll. I can only do this with the DIP. With plain sticks my thumb just pushes them away. I also like to drop quickly to the bottom of the sticks for hard tom rolls. Without the DIP the stick just flies off into lala land.
Every drummer will have their own personal relationship with their sticks. And I can play with other sticks without killing anyone. But I do like these sticks...
