I'm presently using ProMark TX721 Marco Minnemann in both hickory and maple, and have tried VF Zoro, Vater Matrix, Vater Mike Johnston, Silverfox TL, Regal Tip Porcaro -- all of which have the same barrel tip idea.

I'll consider trading the entire box for drum-related stuff (cymbal? heads? hardware?), but shipping will be a bear.

What will it take trade wise to make it even? I have cymbals, NOS heads, drums, etc.

Got any 14" Canasonic heads or SparklTone heads in 22" or 24"?

I have no idea what would make it even. PM me with a proposition! :)

Ok i finally got around to making a list and taking some pics.

I rated them out of 10.
10-means unused
9-used for a few minutes and decided didn't like them
8-maybe an hour or so of playing time
7-between an hour or two of playing time

I have one pair where i have an orphan so we can trade 3 sticks for 3 if you're interested

I can take some close up pics if you're interested

What I Have

VIC FIRTH (all wood tip except the silver bullets)
1 pair of Questlove signature - 9/10
1 pair of 5a Wood tip - 9/10
1 and a half pair of Buddy Rich signature 8.5/10 the orphan is probably about a 7.5/10
1 pair of Dave Weckl Evolution - 9/10
2 pair of 5a Silver Bullet 9/10 and 10/10
1 pair Rock wood tip - 9.5/10



PRO-MARK (all wood tip)
1 pair of 737's - 8.5/10
2 pair of Keith Harris signatures - 8.5/10
1 pair of 5a Pro-round 7.5/10
1 pair of 3al - 8/10


What i'm looking for?

Basically anything with a barrel type wood tip, .54 to .55mm and 16 to 16 1/4 length
Examples: Vic Firth - SD4, Zoro, Royster Jr
Pro-Mark - Rick Latham
Vater - 8a or sugar maple 8a's

I am in Canada and looking to basically trade straight across with similar conditioned sticks. These are not being used so it would be nice to have sticks that i will use.

Or if preferred, i'm ok with selling them anywhere from $5 to $7 a pair shipped depending on the condition. A few are unused and they would be $7 shipped.

Does anyone collect sticks?


I bought a whole bunch that belonged to a symphony percussionist that passed away. Probably a couple hundred. Some very nice sticks. High end mallets too.

If someone is interested in the lot, send me a pm. I'm interested in alot of things.

- Trans Stamp cymbals.

- Money

-Antiques/Interesting stuff

-Brass or Woodwind instruments

-etc.

Nothing too big though. Trying to downsize.

I got like 13 pairs of Bopworks Storyville Jazz. .540" and length is 15 13/16"

I'd be game to try something barely thinner and comparable length up to a bit longer..

Just like em really bouncy.

I know you'e looking to sell or trade the whole lot, but I might be interested in any timpani mallets. I could do cash or trade. Let me know if you have any interest in this.
