A Trip to the Drum Pad

Finally made it to the Drum Pad in Palatine last Saturday, right before they were about to close. I wasn’t able to check out their drum room with all the kits BUT, I did have a few minutes to check out all of the sticks they carry – An entire wall to choose from!

Usually, I am a Vic Firth guy as far as sticks go, I love Regal Tip Whiskers and Bristle Sticks, but was never able to find a Regal Tip stick that I really loved….until now.

Thanks to the Drum Pad, I am now working out the Joey Waronker signature sticks (he’s a lefty too!) and the “Crossover” stick. I couldn’t find it on their website so I better go back there this weekend on my way to the Chicago Drum Show and stock up!
