Shaw 7A Nylon Tip Reviews 4

I've bought this in a small music shop in Peterhead, that in the drum department, only sell sticks. Also purchased them online.

Much better than other 7A nylon tip sticks from the likes of vic firth and vater. They feel good in your hand. Vic firth's to me have a cheap wax-like feel to them. The nylon tip feels way more secure than i've experienced with other makes of nylon tips. They sound good on cymbals, and the sticks feel strong depsite being 7A's.

No complaints. The fact that Shaw aren't a huge name is a shame, but again they don't need to pay drummers to endorse their sticks because they're good enough to stand on their own feet(if sticks had feet).

Great construction. Lasts longer than other sticks, but sticks generally don't last that long with me. But each pair lasts a good few weeks, at times when i've been band practising daily, so that's how well built they are.

I used them at a gig recently and I'm well impressed with them. With lighter and thinner, I could move more easily and had less risk of stick slippage. I'll be stocking up on these. I'v been looking for years for my stick, and i think i've found it. Try it if you fancy giving 7A and/or nylon tips a try.
