I purchased two of these ''Millenium 5A Maple Drumsticks'' with a ?5 Thomann voucher I got from doing a review to use on my electric kit. Because the price fell just short of ?5 Thomann sent me an email saying they were sending me 3 pairs for that price, (Another reason I love Thomann - Excellent customer skills) Unfortunately these stick aren't quite as excellent, I broke my first set within 15 minutes playing. Maybe this is just down to the wood, workmanship in cheap products, MY own heavy playing and having been playing on hard plastic electric pad's. I'm not dismissing these completely as I've had no experience with these sticks on an acoustic kit but in the future I will pay the extra ?10-up per set for quality.
