Since getting to know Todd Sucherman and the musician he is, I discovered his signature sticks very quickly. They are, without a doubt, the best wood-tip sticks on the market. Precisely balanced and the girth of the sticks makes it easy to fit in almost anyone's hands. I still use another brand (nylon tips) for some applications, but for the most part, the Promark SD330's are as near perfect as they come. Highly recommended!!!
