Good feelin' stick!


I got these sticks on a whim, wanting to try them out. I love Rick Latham's Advanced Funk Studies book, so I had to give this a go. I use all types of sticks, its hard for me to have A stick I like. This stick I found to give me drums a lot of attack and clear tone with the barrel tip. The longer taper helps with rebound and makes it easy to do! I also really like the red logo writing. Its different than your basic black, make them a fun looking stick! I play mostly funk, R&B, soul, and some country music with these sticks. I would recommend these sticks for any drummer to try out! This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash Music in Indianapolis, IN Store#57.

Latham Sticks


I got these sticks for my birthday. And these sticks are better than even my Vic Firth 5A Nylon Tip sticks. The sticks had an amazing impact on my drumming. They are so light. I am going to treat them like children.

great overall stick


"this stick has a comfortable balance and weight. It may be a little light for heavy rock, but serves really well for pop/rock, and jazz. What I like best is the tip, because I am used to using an extreme round tip (think vic firth bolero) for cymbal definition, but I like the feel of more oval tips, and I think the Rick Latham stick combines the two efficiently. The only drawback to this stick is that the red logo comes off during rimshots and gets on your snare batter head. "
