The 5B is a standard diameter drumstick for the heavy hitter; a larger general purpose stick for rock, pop, punk and pop for when a 5A is too small and a 2B is too big. It’s 16” in length. Hickory is the most popular wood choice for drumsticks due to its resilience, responsiveness, durability, and classic feel. Oval wood tip provides a dark, warm tone suited for multiple applications. Medium taper for balanced response and rebound.
