Any drummers here?

Does anyone play drums? I was thinking of getting some sticks to goof around with. There is an entire WALL of sticks to choose from. What means what? 5A, 5B, 3A, 7A…??

I have a drum set and I can play it sort of. I like 5A sticks, they seem to be the right size for my hands.

The number represents the weight, the higher the lighter, the letter is thickness, B is thicker than A.

Fantastic!! I figured one would be girth, I wasn’t sure if the other ones were length or what.

5A seemed to the most common size. I’ll go with that.
