Not very durable
Anonymous 08.01.2016
I was looking for sticks that would not break the bank because I always thought that the quality of the sticks was the thing that would matter the least in terms of drum sound. Compared to choosing heads and cymbals, that might be correct. Yet these Millenium sticks have taught me that it is worth to invest a little more when it comes to sticks.

I grant these sticks feel and sound acceptable for the price. The weight is fine and they are reasonably balanced. The surface is fine as well - not too sticky, rough or smooth.

The downside is, these sticks are not very durable. To be fair, the way you play determines how long your sticks will last - but these just break much faster than all other sticks I have ever tried. It was often that I noticed by the sound of the snare and cymbals that the stick was broken early on before an actual crack was visible.

What I use these sticks for is practicing. As they don't hit any hard surfaces when using a practice pad, they do actually last quite long.

All in all, I can only partially recommend these sticks. There are alternatives (Vic Firth Nova) that are much more durable and still way cheaper than the standard models.

They're fine.

Bought a whole bunch of these to have around at the studio as back-up sticks. They feel good in the hand, not glossy, seem to be balanced well enough (at the very least the ones that I've already took out of the packaging), and the sound is fine, though obviously not as crisp and defined as ones with a plastic tip, but that's fine. The only thing to consider before buying into these is their durability - maple isn't the hardest wood in the first place, and considering the price, I don't believe that they will hold up against the test of time (or more likely, against the test of endless rim shots). They're fine to have around, but for live shows I would opt for something a bit sturdier. That said, none have broken yet, but it's too soon to tell as it's only been a bit over a week since I've started using these. For the price though it's great, even if used only for backup, further playing will show how they fare in the long run.

Good beginner spare sticks

Bargain sticks good for use when in the early throes of learning (breaking)
Very rarely are the sticks perfectly straight or weight

Fit for purpose at minimum cost
Graham1798 23.04.2016
I use 7A sticks and was looking to convert up to 5A for certain music styles that require a bit more "beef" but i wanted the weight just above my 7A's but a tad more girth which is why i chose the Maple wood, less mass than say oak or hickory.

At this price its easy to try types out in the knowledge that if you have erred it isn't going to be a big cost factor.

I have to say the quality is good and the stick is not warped or poorly lathed/finished. I'm happy with them and why wouldn't i be? All of my hardware from stands to rack to pedals is/are Millenium.
