WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU WHEN CHOOSING
THE PERFECT SET OF DRUMSTICKS?

Diameter, length, wood type, finish, tip shape, and balance all play a critical role in your sticks' feel.

Diameter + Length + Weight

The diameter of a stick in your hand is the primary element in its feel. Length and weight are also important. Shorter and lighter sticks produce a more delicate sound and may require more effort to play louder. Longer and heavier sticks produce greater intensity and allow you to play louder with less effort.

  

   


Wood

Weight, density, texture, resonance and flexibility all vary from one type of wood to another. Choose sticks made from wood that feels right in your hands and projects the sound you want.

 


Taper

The length of the taper and diameter where it meets the tip determines how quickly the stick rebounds off drums and cymbals. ProMark models feature a longer taper for an active response, while ProMark Classic models have a shorter taper, driving the force of the stick into the drum.

 

   


Tip

Tip shape dictates a number of tonal characteristics,
most noticeably in regard to cymbal response.

 


Finish

A drumstick's finish is one of the primary factors in its feel and grip. From raw wood to ActiveGrip, ProMark stick finishes offer the full spectrum of feel.
