Summary: Great product! The sticks are a bit longer than the standard wooden drum sticks but still does the job just the same. Blue light is activated by each hit of the drum head. Real fun item to have!
Flexible sticks perfect for those with wrist injries

Summary: I've used these before and while others think they are not real sticks they are dead wrong. I started to use acrylic sticks many years ago when I started to have Carpel tunnel syndrome and they did the charm. I've since then had my surgery and use these sticks still as they give more then wooden ones plus they are a lot easier for doing rolls with. I'll never go back to wooden ones ever again.
Summary: Got these for my 5 year old niece for Christmas, she loved them. Played with them more than her 'girly' presents. My fiancee's son (a drummer) tried them and says they don't sound very good for actual drumming - he prefers wood. But he thought they'd be cool as a gimmick for a few songs during a gig. A good present for the would-be drummers you know.
Summary: Well my wife bought these for me for Xmas... At first I thought they were real drum sticks. They are NOT! They are the shape of sticks but, as others have put it they flex, vibrate really, really bad, you cannot just turn them on and off. But..... the worst is the sound. Cymbals sound awful and there is no noise from drum hits themselves. Great for kids to mess with in the dark. I don't really know what to do with them, give them to a kid I suppose.
Summary: These drumsticks are fun to play with...especially when the lights are low. Each time you strike them, they light up and they will light up more if you strike the drums hard. My 12 year old is really having fun with them. They have a larger circumference than a wooden drumstick and are heavier, too. I would not use them as a substitute for wooden drumsticks, but they are a nice addition to add fun to your child's practice sessions or live performance!
Summary: When I recieed this item, one of the drum sticks' bulb had blown or something! I replaced the batteries and nothing would work. The other one was fine and it looks neat, but the fact that it came in broken was rather disappointing.
Summary: Everything is working fine and the product was delivered on time. The Firestix are awesome. I still haven't discovered the batteries comsumption because I started using the product few days ago.
Summary: I bought these to play with the drums on guitar hero. My 8 year old daughter absolutely loves them! They work every time they are tapped against the drums. They light up a very pretty blue that slowly fades away. The tips are made of a soft rubber material which is nice. They are very well constructed. They are a big hit with all of the neighborhood kids. They all love to come over and play the drums so they can use the light up drumsticks.
