Why I use Balbex drumsticks?
The first time I tried Balbex drumsticks was when I found a pair of G5B left on a drum set of the music school I used to teach some years ago. After only 5 minutes of playing, I was already convinced that these sticks will do the work for me. Now I use my own signature Balbex 5B sticks and they feel really perfect in my hands. Good quality that withstands the strong playing of my style of music and great balance. Balbex is the best choice for me! Thank you very much for everything!
