Interesting.....the sticks look similar. I wonder if anyone uses their own signature model? I remember having a Chad Smith sig. snare and I thought that was so cool that it was his own model, until I found out he did NOT use that one!!! I ended up selling it as it did not work for jazz but was a killer rock/funk/RHCP music snare.
I think most drummers with signature sticks DO use them, at least most of the time. I know John Riley uses his stick for everything he does. Steve Gadd certainly uses his stick all the time. Plenty of other examples.

This reminds me playing claves. You have to create a cavity in your hand to get resonance and let the clave resonate. Big cavity=big sound.

Can't wait to try this today on my new Bluebird ride...
