View Full Version : Tips exploding

02-22-2003, 10:01 PM
As I play away with various rudiments and such on my new piccolo snare, two of my previous stick tips have busted off.
Ami playing too hard?? Or am I a professional in the works?
Has this happened to anyone else??? Let me know.:eek:

Know matter who you are, if you play alot, you go through alot of sticks. Be prepared for alot more stick breaking.

i dont know why, but im currently using a Kozo Suganuma signature from Zildjian, its 7A width but its longer, its been with me for 3 1/2 months and its not even chipping, i hit fairly hard, i play Prog. Rock, i dont know why it doesent break, but dont get me wrong ive broken a lot of sticks in the past!
