If there are any drummers in the house:

im usually a rock drummer, but im doing a one off thing playing snare drum in this marching band thing tommoro. i was planing on buying a new set of sticks tommorow anyway, but now that it think about it, i was wondering what size/brand sticks do you prefer for marching?

hopefully some of you have some drumming experience and can help me with this!

Depends really on the size of your hands, what kind of feel you want from the sticks and sound.

Time after time I always find myself using the Vic Firth 5A's american hickory.

Although for marching a quick sounding snappy head responce is required, so somthing like the Zildjian 6A's is good.

I presume you have just got like a pipe drum thing (I dont know much about marching drums)

if youve got one of those big badd ass snares, maybe 5B's (a bit heavier) would be better

i'd just go for thinner really it depends on what you feel best with. although i usually playing with heavy sticks for the sound but drum rolls/march beats feel better for me with thinner sticks

well yeah.. i mean i just kinda assumed that a lighter stick would feel better doin the whole marching thing, but i still need a pretty big sound.. so maybe something heavier? haha, i think im more confused now then before

Vic Firth SRH Ralph Hardimons. Most popular stick for marching. Also I would recommend the Vic Firth SJQ Jeff Queen Solo Sticks.
