Not just aesthetic differences

By lefty_buckets

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

You can see the grain of the most of the sticks (in the pack that I received) flowing to fracture points along the shoulder. I'm not a particularly hard hitter, but do ocasionally like to ride the bells, and sure enough they split when struck with the right frequency. They are more or less Vic Firth sticks that didn't pass their quality controls for both cosmetic AND quality reasons. You're probably better off waiting for a sale and picking-up the actual Vic Firth's. Honestly, can't believe VF would actually sell their subpar sticks this way.

For further breakdown of the 12 pair:5 pair poor wood grain 1 pair had knots6 pair pretty decent

Good product for the money

By Bill-Of17W

from Bourbonnais, IL

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

These sticks do a great job for me. I use 7A's and play mostly with jazz trio's or quartets and am not a hard hitter. I don't know how they would hold up under hard hitting rock.

Wood Rock

By Marc-jumvG

from Vic, Australia

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

Chunky and solid. Played with these for a week or so now, hardly a dint in them. Very good value for money. I might try something a bit lighter for my next purchase as the thickness is a bit to get used to.

Perfect for a drummer like me

By Scotty, the boy wonder

from Morristown, TN

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I have been buying sticks by the pound at a local store for the past 2 years at $2 a pair (owner loves me) and I finally decided to try these out. For $3.33 (only $1.33 more) I can get sticks (all the right size) that last 2 weeks instead of 1 week. I play 1 live show a week plus 2+ hours of hard hitting practice in one week, and I use 7A's. for me to get 2 weeks out of $3 sticks is amazing.. If you tour!!! YOU NEED THESE STICKS!

Not too bad

By Nocktis

from Missoula, Mt

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I'll be honest, I've had these sticks in my cart 3 separate times before I decided to buy them. I got as far as checking out and figured..."That many sticks for that price...hell no, I'm gonna get ripped..." But the reality is much different. As far as cheap sticks go, these are some of the best. When they say "minor cosmetic blemishes" that means minor scratches near the tips, slightly "ruff" patches in areas where the stick will be striking cymbals anyway. I would have given these sticks 5 stars but the only problem I found with them is they do break rather quickly. It may just be me, however. I tend to hit hard and the longest millage I've gotten out of a pair of these is two practice sessions (6 hours each) and three shows (1-2 hours each). I suppose that isn't too bad considering my band makes it a habit to practice as if it were a show. I'll probably buy these again.

GREAT STICKS!

By Dagan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I've used just about every brand of stick out there, and all the name brands are about the same in terms of quality. But what sets these apart is the value. Like other reviewers have said, I go through a lot of sticks, so I try to get the most I can for the money. These sticks are similar in quality to Vic Firth's top lines, and cost a lot less! So these sticks have become my choice, and I am VERY satisfied with them!!!

Best Buy!!!!!!

By Eric Wilson-VuXYN

from Havelock NC.

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

I own these sticks in a 7A wood tip. I used to buy the $6-$10.00 pair of sticks but no more, not since I tried these out. For this price a drummer needs to at least try them out once. I gave these sticks to some drummer friends of mine and they are now hooked them. These are the best sticks hands down for this kind of money! Try'em out!

great for the working drummer

By Run-Run Zabatista

from San Francisco CA

Comments about Nova 12-Pair Hickory Drumsticks:

It's great to have an abundance of sticks without spending a small fortune. They're just as good as an $80 case of sticks. I play 5-7 shows a month, 2-3 hours at a time, so I go thru a lot of sticks. These are great for the working drummer. I buy 2 cases(5B Wood) of these for the price of the higher end sticks. They're not as bad as some people think. You should try them.
