The outer diameter at the fattest part of the stick is ~21/32” (.654”), which is slightly larger than the 9/16” (.55”) that came with the guitar hero drum set. I researched but didn’t find any definitive measurements for sticks so I made them a little thicker for two reasons. First, I have larger hands so I wanted to be comfortable instead of feeling like I’m using chop sticks. And second, I was not sure how durable walnut would be under the abuse. Length is 16”.

They look great!! I used to make my own when i played the drums, about 25 years ago. I couldn’t find any fat enough, I would get cramps in my hands from the thin sticks. so I say go with whatever works!!!

check out the vic virth website they have all the sizes of sticks.some 2b’s would be good for you guys but really 5b’s would be doable.i rock the buddy rich sticks but if i don’t have a pair of those i use the 5a extreme, i need the extra length on my set.
