First, let's cover some basics about drum sticks and mallets. There are basically three different types of tools used to play the drums and those are drum sticks, mallets, and brushes. Drum sticks are obviously the most common and the most widely used in terms of what they accomplish. Mallets are typically ball ended whether with yarn, plastic, or some other type of material. Mallets are most commonly found being used for auxiliary percussion, orchestral percussion, and also are used on certain styles of drumming and for certain effects. Brushes have a terrifically soft and swirly sound that makes them terrific for jazz, blues, acoustic styles, and anything that might require a level of intimacy and/or volume control.

Drum sticks come in a variety of different sizes and styles. For example, typically (although there are exceptions) the lower the number in a drum stick (such as 5A) means it will have a larger circumference. The letters represent different styles of music that the sticks were intended for when initially created. For example, "S" originally denoted that it was intended for "street" use such as marching bands. "A" is for orchestra, so for use in big bands. Finally, "B" stands for "band" use in symphonic bands, wind ensembles, and brass bands.

When selecting a drum stick, mallet, or brush, it is crucial that you find one that fits comfortably to your hand for you play. If you're looking for suggestions just let us know what styles of music you like to play and we can recommend a selection of sticks that would cater to what you need. Wooden drum sticks are going to give a more classic sound whereas metal sticks are going to be more durable, but louder and can often be found being used in heavier styles of music. Wood tips, metal tips, nylon, or any other type of tip material will give you a different feel and sound on your kit so be sure to select the one that fits the sound you are aiming to achieve.

Check out our selection of brushes available if you're looking for that iconic warm brush sound for jazz, blues, or any style of music you might need. We also have mallets available for cajon and any type of auxiliary percussion that will give you the necessary playability and tone to perform at your best.
