My Silverfox Sticks Are in the Mail!

Do Silverfox drumsticks really last longer? This is a question I have decided to answer for myself! I recently heard from one of my online drumming buddies that Silverfox drumsticks last them MUCH longer than other brands. This excited my curiosity of course, and I started searching for more information. In the end, I simply decided to order some of their sticks!

I ordered three pairs of Silverfox 7As with Delrin tips, which are denser and stronger than nylon. These sticks are currently being shipped to me, and I can't wait to get my hands on them! I plan on giving them an extensive stress test, and comparing them side to side with a pair of Vic Firth sticks.

Stay tuned!
