Beginners and advanced classes often never pay attention to the selection of good drumsticks, it is understandable. The selection of drumsticks is very important because it is one of the determinants of style and nuance of a rhythm while playing. Often a beginner chooses a stick that looks good, feels light, and the price is cheap. That is the way to choose the wrong drummer. A good drummer will choose the best drumsticks for each performance.
Types of Wood Stik Drum
Before we get into size, I want to show you how to pick the best wood for the drumsticks. Often the drumsticks are made of three main wooden types: Oak, Maple, and Hickory.
Oakwood, oak sticks usually feel heavy when swung and has a very solid fiber arrangement, therefore, requires enough energy for the drummer – which means you will feel every stroke in your hand.
Maple wood, drumsticks made of maple wood feels light when swung and this stick has great flexibility. Because maple wood has a fiber that is not solid then a drummer does not need to spend a lot of energy while playing.
Hickory wood, the hickory drumstick is a stick that has medium weight and is most commonly used. A round stick with sufficient flexibility and a drummer does not require much power when playing.
So my advice before playing drum set first the sticks to be used.
The end of the drumstick is different and choosing the end of the stick is also very important for a drummer. There are two very basic forms from the end of the drumsticks, which are wood-tipped and nylon-tipped. Both have different placements, so note the rules.
Nylon Edge Sticks, preferably nylon sticks used for electric drumming. It is used to protect the V-drum kit (drum pet) from flakes and scratches. It also produces a loud, cymbal sound.
Wood End Sticks, wood-tipped sticks are better for rock music or a little hard. Smasher and produce sound pretty steady (hard). There are various tips and styles that can get a lot of praise. The best way to decide this is to try it for yourself.
