It’s also worth being aware that drumsticks are made of different woods – and this can affect the heaviness and therefore power of the stick. As such, those players need a drumstick that can handle the demands of diverse and dynamic drumming. As well as creating a drumstick sizes chart for you so that you can compare different options, I’ve also made suggestions from my own experience as a professional drummer.Choosing sticks might seem like an arbitrary choice, but there really is a science to it, hence why we’ve created this guide to the best drumsticks available today. The other point to consider is the length of the taper, which is the part of the stick that connects the tip to the main body of the stick. Many stick companies use famous drummers to promote their products, often in the guise of signature drumsticks - that is, sticks designed to the exact specifications of the drummer in question, and usually with their name or band logo adorned on the stick.

The 5A drumstick has a medium-weight and medium-length drumstick, whereas the 5B is a thicker drumstick used for rock drumming. So far it feels very nice and natural to hold (compared with the ones that came along with my MPS-850 set).The 7A size doesn’t feel too big in the hands and is light enough to help you master key techniques.
