    Chromecast Products...

    I picked up a 3 pack of wood tip 5A's. They aren't Vic Firth quality, but for $15.95 shipped, they make a good practice stick. The balance and feel are pretty good.

    I took and old snare drum stand base. The tube is 1" which accepts a 7/8" tube. Cut it down to around 2" Works perfect.
