"Hi, A lot of drummers ask me what sticks do I dig. There was a time, I would only play one kind "Regal Rock" back in the day. I have played a lot of different ones since then. ProMark, Vic Firth, Now I play Ahead and Zildjian Jazz. I am also trying out a custom stick made just right, light and right. This tour I played the jazz more, maybe because I have been playing a lot of Jazz over the last 3 years. But I still play my Aheads for rock too. There is nothing wrong with playing with more than one type of stick. I also love Mallets. I have at least 13 or 15 different types. Brushes also, 3 different kinds. So again, What ever makes you play better." Peter Criss
