The size of the tip's point of contact with the instrument determines tone and articulation. The differences can be very subtle. Wood tips generally produce a warmer sound, and nylon tips often produce a brighter, more articulate sound and are more durable. Experiment until you find the sound that you like. Oval tips produce a dark, warm tone; suited for multiple applications.
The main effects of a stick's finish are on its grip and feel. Lacquer is the choice of most drummers. Lacquered sticks are smooth to the touch. This comfortable finish helps to reduce chafing and blisters.
