TL;DR: If you are a loud drummer with only one type of sticks in your bag, walk on; you will hate silent sticks. If you already use brushes, rods, light wood sticks etc, you will think this is the best thing since sliced bread and love them.
For what drummers are Silent Sticks perfect?
Thanks for asking. We manufacture the silent sticks and have seen a huge success with them. Still, they might not be for everybody. The concept of the sticks is to give you the least loud stick possible, while keeping sound and feel stick-like. Now, certainly every stick plays differently, and having a very light drum stick, which also is a bit flexible, does not feel like a 2B hickory at all.
When you are being told by your metal band that you are way too loud, and you would not consider switching from baseball-bat sized sticks to something lighter, like, say, 5b or even 5a, you most certainly will hate our sticks. Yes, they are less loud, most definitely, but they do not play like 2B or thicker sticks.
When you already use rods and light maple sticks to dial down your drum volume but still run into issues with volume – or you play e-drums and need a solution to do so even more quiet, as when playing late at night, you have come to the right place. Most drummers not only can archive playing way less loud this way, but also enjoy the new found volume so enjoyable they use silent sticks on every day basis. They are great for workshops and drum lessons, as you can talk while playing without yelling all the time; they are awesome to get the volume adjusted to acoustic guitars etc.
When you are one of those drummers, you will find that the sticks last really long and will be a good companion in your stick bag. You already know that having cymbals set up in a 90° angle will kill your light sticks, so I do not have to tell you to tilt them a bit to prolong the lifespan of silent sticks too. Something that comes as surprise to some drummers certainly. Now, swirling the stick instead of simply smashing the cymbals will also give you more control of the volume.
