    Pro-Mark Sticks

    sometimes a few friends, and myself, play a little harder in arena shows. It's just the excitement(?) of it, or in my case nervousness ha!...I was just using that as an example

    Pro-Mark Sticks

    yeah, the wrap takes some getting used too, and it's not all the same. the promark wrap to me is the best, almost "spongy" feeling...even when I use my ahead sticks I wrap them with the promark wrap...the other wraps seem to be thinner in my hands, which I'm sure is better for some people as well.

    Pro-Mark Sticks

    I was using this based on my own experience playing arenas...and I said I've NOT broken a stick playing with bad technique over 3 shows but have broken a stick warming up for a show...Maybe I wrote my statement wrong...sorry, it's the coffee talking.. now, with pro mark, has anyone else notice...

    Pro-Mark Sticks

    c'mon, that's just a silly statement. It really depends on the type of music you're playing etc etc....I've had a pair of wood sticks last me 3 arena shows playing very incorrectly and with bad technique and I've had a wood stick break when I'm playing softly on a snare drum to warm's...

    My Sonor Phonic home kit...

    Nacci that's a great point. I kept seeing a couple kits pop up in the 13, 14 rack 16 floor and 22 kick config. Totally not what I was thinking I wanted.

    My Sonor Phonic home kit...

    Thanks for the responses! They are indeed 79's per the stamp, all my phonic kits, 3, all came to me with the backwards bass drum. I've never moved them around. I've got a buddy who always busts my balls about that too. My black kit is a 78' and my oaks are 81's per the stamps. That's a Ludwig...
