So voila. I fell in love with these sticks. I use them now for almost 3 years have APRS MODELS test more "classical" say as Vic Firth, Carbostik, Pro Mark etc ... but on my Tama dvolu was discarded.
Perfectly equilibrated for my game, they fall lgrement forward. This can dstabiliser to some beginners, but personally I find it striking amliore. These are rods oak I believe, so plutt solid. In addition they are a bit heavier than average but not enough to go out with excruciating tendonitis.
At 8 euros a pair, we can not criticize the price.
May be older than I will turn to a more lg MODEL but I think still in Tama OAK.
