    I break about one a week, and that's due to all the rim shots. Generally they get chewed up in the middle and then they blow apart while playing.

      I've only straight-up broken a stick once, and that was probably 8 years ago. When I play louder music, I use bigger sticks. Sure, they always take some getting used to, but after 10 minutes or so I'm fine.

          Very rare for me as well. I may have one chip and flatten on one side per year, but I haven't broken one in quite a while.

              then would this be a good time to do a recap of this week's questions?



              That way those can be answered over the weekend by people who haven't already and the thread won't stagnate.

                    Ive only broken one stick in the past 10 years. It was a cheap stick from somewhere,,,very light....and brittle. playing the rock747's hickory for a few years. I can widdle them down, and the tips will give up, but never break.

                      Today's Question: Do you prefer to play with a click or without one?



                      I personally like working without one, but sometimes they're needed so I feel it's important that ever instrumentalist get used to using one.

                        For live performances, I prefer not to use a click. When recording, I like a nice loud click. Even better, a drum machine playing a simple 2 and 4 beat (assuming a 4/4 time sig).


                        Good playing can hide a crappy drumset, but even the best drumset can't hide crappy playing.

                          Depends on the situation.



                          Recording: absolutely prefer having an accented click or sequenced percussion track in time.



                          Live: One band I play with uses sequences & some backing tracks. Click is a must have. Other band, not needed or wanted.

                            Live, I have never used a click. Live situations can lead to problems if everyone isn,t on the same page. Never had a group that was comfortable enough to use one.......Can be very useful in studio though..........

                              Solution: only give the drummer click and everyone understands the drummer is in charge of keeping time.
