I recently played a gig and accidentally found myself playing with a nylon-tipped stick in one hand and a wood-tipped one in the other. Now I've realised that it's a great, quick way to vary the sound on cymbals, cowbells, etc.

I can't think why I never actually thought of doing this. I imagine that plenty of drummers must do it, but I've never before heard of it. I now see that Ben White, the fine player that demonstrates cymbals on mycymbal.com, does it all the time.

Not something I normally do either, 99% of my playing is with 5B nylon tip sticks, but when I did musical theatre stuff I used a variety of sticks and combinations. Experimenting can be fun and somethings definitely call for it, but a creature of habit I always wind up back at the same place!

Nice to see you back RvJim. Welcome to the old country! Are you anywhere near Lincolnshire?

You're about 150 miles from me then, so perhaps a bit far to pop over for a drink. That's a shame.

As you may already know, the UK has a great diversity of accents, despite the loss and dilution of many of them through increased mobility over the last fifty years. You'll still hear some broad ones down there!
