Good value but quite soft

By: on 18 February 2022
I bought a brick of these about a year ago, and only have 1 pair left. I bought them as practice sticks. The remaining pair has only been used on my practice pad and it's fine for that. The others all broke. Turns out that the maple is too soft to be used on cymbals. They got chewed up relentlessly (making quite a mess in the process). They are cheap and very good value if you don't need to hit cymbals with them, but I can't recommend them for use on a full kit. Try the hickory ones instead, still very good value.

The 5A is a little light for me but that's ok. I myself will always be parsel to the 5B drum stick. Both are ☆☆☆☆☆, 5A & 5B but the B series feels right for me.

Drum Sticks

By: on 15 February 2021
My grandaughter received her new batch of drumsticks from Artist Guitars recently and was thrilled. At 11 years of age, she shows great potential and also understanding of the drumming genre. The sticks she received are the, DSM5A MAPLE. These sticks suit her nicely...not too heavy/light...appealing sound and she likes the look of them! (Typical girl stuff...where are the 'culture posse'???) Anyone with a young daughter/grandaughter who's interested in drums, providing her with these sticks, will make her beam as she approaches the drum kit!!! Artist Guitars pricing and delivery times are hard to beat! Definitely recommended.

Smooth and light in hand

By: on 23 June 2020
Having purchased a variety of drumsticks I have found the Artist series sticks some of the best in the price range. Smooth all maple wood give me a nice feel and allow me to grip properly and also slide. When playing i tend to change my grips and the smoothness allows me to do this with ease. Delivery was super quick and the purchasing process was super easy.
