Superb Sticks for jazz

These sticks feel great and sound wonderful on the ride. They also are fairly durable, which is nice. The tips take a long time before they begin to chip off. I believe that Bopworks are the best sticks for jazz on the market and the West Coast model is my favorite among these. Wonderful sticks.
Nice big sound in a light package.

Love the weight and diameter as well as the oval tip. Plays light with a rich sound. This is my go-to stick. You hit a home run with this one.

I like the light feel and brighter sound with these sticks. Snare work is fast and responsive. Glad I gave them a shot and will probably grab a few more pairs.
definetly inproves cymbal sound

Well balanced with a light sound on the ride cymbal.
Feels like they were made for me!

I had purchased the West Coast model a couple of years ago but had not really played them until about 6 months ago. First thing that came to mind is "Why did I wait so long?" These sticks feel like they were made for my hands. I'm used to playing larger diameter sticks but these are balanced so well, they soon became my favorite Jazz stick. (I'm a Jazz player and teach Jazz drums in the university setting.) Though these sticks have a little smaller diameter and are a bit shorter than I was used to, their response and balance won me over immediately! They are wonderful for quieter gigs and work great for medium gigs as well. I've been playing them for about 6 months and find NO chipping on the beads.
Love this stick!!!
I highly recommend that you try this model!
The elegant shape of the tip

My comment about drumsticks West Coast? Easy
Since I have had them, I've only been playing West Coast sticks.
I appreciate their lightness, their balance. With them, I play with much more nimbleness, the rebounding is excellent. With the Ride cymbal, they sound nice like crystal. At last, they're beautiful, I really like the elegant shape of the tip.
Will be great for quite playing!

Same length as the Storyville model but slightly smaller in diameter. Great balance! I'm loving these sticks BopWorks models.

These sticks are just perfect for the drummer who needs to play at really low volumes. The rebound, feel and sound is just perfect, no matter the room, cymbal or drumset you have.
