What is the difference between 5A and 5B drumsticks

and which should a 14 year old get. Im playing on drumset and regular snare with them. Thanks

They have different weights and diameters. The 5a drumsticks are lighter and more flexible while 5b is a touch heavier and more appropriate to louder, heavier playing. The "A" model sticks were intended for big band or dance type orchestras while the "B" model sticks were meant for Band applications such as brass bands and symphonic concert bands.
