Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick- LED drumsticks
We switched ordinary drumsticks for these LED ones from Germany to see if the average musicians would notice. This is what they reported:
First,they remarked on the color. "Very cool!" "And they have a good grip, and weight." (Apparently, they are a standard size 5A, for you drummers out there.)
While they found them a little bottom-weighted, they still found them comfortable but because of the tips, they felt like there was a slight delay so they wouldn't be good for "heavy hitting." One drummer, Buster, felt the tips might fall off, and that affected his rhythm.
For a real test, we switched them at a block party and the crowd loved the flashing lights, though the drummer had to remember not to toss them out to the crowd after the encore.
