How to choose drum sticks or drumsticks ;)

Here is a quick video for my students to help you make your decision on buying drums sticks. There are links below so that you can purchase your sticks at Amazon.

This video is not all-inclusive but it is a starting point to help you choose which drums sticks you will need.

Choose a major brand and you won’t go wrong.

Dear Marshall as yet i am not able to find just where i can buy my drumsticks and my drum pad as i am not very computer litterate and i find it quite daunting to order anything from amazons.dot.com. and i also would like some advice on buying a drum kit for a rank beginner(who does not even know the name off the drums invovled) (& could you please tell me what a reasonable price i could expect to pay for my drum kit? sincere Regards deirdre laaman on (07)32170069.

Dear Marshall i am just so keen to start practicing on my drum pad at home & i have been told that i must do that without drums for about a year, before i graduate to the drums (& just what do you think off that advice? sincere regards Deirdre Laaman.

hey Deirdre, I like your excitement. For my students, I get them started on the drum set as soon as possible. It is hard for most students to play on a pad for a month … much less a year. The pad is critical but I suggest using both … drum set and the pad.

Hey Deirdre … to buy sticks and drum pads try a local music store. [if you can't use amazon.com]
The local store will have what you need.

If you are not sure of the names of drums and cymbals, checkout my Quick Start Drum videos. They’re free.
Here is the link: http://playdrumsinaband.com/QuickStartGuideThankYou.htm

This will be the first step to educating yourself to buy a drum set.

Hey Deirdre. To buy a good quality drum kit, stay with a major brand like … Pearl or Tama or Ludwig.
Their beginner kits will be a great place to start.

If you can buy this online … try the local music store. They are usually very helpful.
