I love pulling a brand new pair of sticks out of the bag; love the feel of new drumsticks.

Sticks have been lasting me 3 months or more, so I get to feel it less often, but broke out new ones today at church so I'll be used to them at our big band gig Wednesday.

At least, that was my excuse.

Yeah, I know the feeling. New drumsticks in the hands are hard to beat. Other things that feel good in my hands include:

1. The steering wheel and 5-speed gearshift of my beat up Honda Accord.
2. My old Remington model 870 pump shotgun
3. The vibrations of a drumstick as I'm playing my favorite song
4. Driving a big nail with my 28 ounce Easwing framing hammer
5. Petting my dogs
6. The feel of my Fender Precision Bass (though I'm strictly a beginner)

Just couldn't wait, right? Big Smile New wood is always nice.

A 28oz framing hammer? I'm staying out of his way!!!

I also like the feel of landing a nice smooth R/C airplane. When you grease one in that adrenalin rush just make your head swell.

The man knows his tools. The Estwing is the hammer of all hammers, and the model 870 is the most successful pump actions ever made.

Oh, and I love new sticks also.

Don't mean to insult you or anything, but you and I are a lot alike! Smile
