What are the best, drumsticks, ever?

Asked by fortris (680points) January 21st, 2009

I have slightly large hands, and I’m currently using the Rock Band stock drumsticks, which are causing a blister to form on my right middle finger. This is quite bothersome, so what are the best drumsticks I can get that will be best for playing rock band, normal drums, and not cause blisters?

Drum sticks do not cause blisters…It’s the friction of your hands on the stick that cause the blisters and they will form. I have been playing drums my entire life and my hands feel like baseball gloves.

If you play enough the blisters turn into judo’s “baseball gloves”, it doesnt matter what kind of sticks you use. I have no idea how you are getting a blister on your middle finger, maybe you should try a different grip. I currently use the Zak Starkey Zildjian sticks which I love!!

@loser, your mom makes drumsticks at home? How cool! I would love to hear how she does it.

@supermouse I don’t know if I’ll ever get her to divulge her secret, but I’ll ask her!
