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.

Good for anything but real cymbals.

I'm a recording engineer and I've started practicing drums to further understand the instrument so I can work better and more easily.
These sticks are fine for snare, toms, pads and maybe Ride cymbals, if you place your ride jazz-style low, but as soon as you hit a crash or hi-hat, these things disintegrate in a few minutes and the room turns into a woodworker's workshop, woodchips everywhere!
If you play electronic drums or pads these will be fine for you, they're super light too, but for real drums I ended up going back to proper sticks.

Pretty light, brake easily but really cheap and good for rehearsing and e drums
Grobocop 28.02.2018
All said in the heading... Cheap, light and break easy. The weight match is also questionable. On the other hand, I use em for rehearsing because they are cheap and I like using sticks that are not chipped and since they easily brake I kinda always have a new pair in my hands. If you want to use em for gigging, have a few pairs on the side and be prepared to grab a new stick when the one you are holding brakes. I use them for e drums too. With e drums they do not brake and because they are light, they are more gentle on sensitive mesh heads and electronic cymbals.

Practice drumsticks

These drumsticks are surprisingly good considering their price. Other budget variants I have tried were of significantly lower quality. These are pretty straight, balanced and pairs are mostly well matched. There is some weight variation form pair to pair, but mostly not something that should concern you on a day to day basis. Their durability is not significantly lower than that of major label drumesticks, and especially not as lower as their price is. The wood has nice friction with hands (not too much), and they are not slippery (as happens with some of the low cost finishes).

Millenium 5A Maple Drumsticks
James007 28.05.2013
These are good beginners sticks for use on electric drums. Of course they could be used on acoustic kits bit in my experience they don't last very long - probably as they are maple and not hickory like pro sticks. Kids will be fine with them on acoustic kits as they don't tend to hit that hard but hard hitters will probably break them in a song or two!

Handy as spares, back up pair or warm up sticks. Especially good if you or you're child have a habit of leaving sticks behind as they are so cheap.

I've bought a lot of these for my students to use on the electric kits and they've been pretty good. Most of them are completely straight and of similar weight. They do tend to get stain marks from sweat though. I think this is because they don't have any laquer on them.

I Think these sticks are good for practice but not as good for playing in gigs or for public. I bought them because they were cheap (1.85 pair). I find that Millenium 5A Maple Wooden Drumsticks are a little bit too thick for my hand. I like sticks that are more light and faster to play. But purely for training purposes they work pretty well and if I break one stick while playing its not as bad. I managed to play like 1-2 months and then I found out that all my sticks were broken. I play heavy metal. Only pair of Millenium I still have left is the one pair that I use my electrical drumset.

Maybe I hit too hard!

Used to be good

I've been a huge fan of these sticks for a very long time as I never understood how people felt ok to pay 10€ for a pair of sticks and these were fine and lasted just as long as others.
However, I don't know if there has been a dip in quality but recently I've been smashing 2-3 of these per rehearsal. I don't think my playing style has changed yet these sticks don't seem up to the task anymore.
