tone to the bone no other way

Just wondering if any out there mix it up so to speak - maybe use a nylon tip stick in one hand while a wood tip stick in the other. I tend to play 95% of the time with nylon tip sticks, but there are songs that just get a better cymbal sound if I use the wooden tipped sticks. Guess it is just like using different picks on guitar....which I tend to do as well. Would like to get some thoughts from the FDPers that pound the skins.

Nice thing about music is you can play with what ever you like the best. There is nothing wrong with doing this and playing nylon and wood, one in each hand.<br /> <br /> I played only nylon for years but have since converted to wood only with my Paiste Signatures. The ride tone was just too bright to fit well in the mix. It's different with Zils.
