    Default What to do with broken drum sticks?

    i feel bad about throwing away my broken sticks. i mean, theyre nice pieces of hickory, and theyre just chewed up a little and broken at the top, so why waste them? anybody have any ideas as to what i could do with 50+ broken sticks?

    But this guy is an awsome drummer hes snare stuff is insane and his blink 182 nd +44 is just so hard to play perfect".

    keep them in a bag incase of random vampire attack... drummers are an valuable source of wooden stakes...

  3. When in doubt, get a hammer!

    You could use a couple of pairs to "fabricate" custom cymbal soft mallets.
    Still, 50+ pairs is a lot of wood mate.

    I rarely break sticks, but once they reach that point where the tips begin to soften and/or chip...I switch to a fresh pair. The spent sticks...are placed next to(not in) the dumpster at my rehearsal space and some other drummer(s) snags 'em up.

    Good idea. I've seen drummers in need, using chomped up beaten sticks.

    i've only broken 3 sticks in 4.5 years. 1 Zildjian 5A dip, 1 Vater Manhattan 7A, and 1 huge Vic Firth sig marching stick (my band director was impressed )

    i think i'm going to put them (the Vater and the VF) on my wall, i like to keep my broken sticks.

    I used to burn them too. But now I'm just throwing them away.
    I kept my first sticks as a memory.
