The 5B is a standard diameter drumstick for the heavy hitter; a larger general purpose stick for rock, pop, punk and pop perfect for when a 5A is too small and a 2B is too big. The nylon tip provides a brighter, more articulate sound.

Because of its resilience, responsiveness and durability, hickory is the most commonly used wood for drum sticks. Hickory is the classic drum stick feel.
