$6.95

This is a pair of hickory drum sticks, hand-made in the USA by master drumstick maker Jeff Rich.

Jeff has been making drum sticks for 35 years and has perfected some special methods for making his sticks last far longer than any others on the market - three to five times longer in fact. He starts by hand-selecting the best hickory logs, ensuring he gets the exact species and type of log he wants. Then he has them re-sawn into boards, which then get further milled to the right diameter. Next he mills them into dowels using a special process and machine he built himself. The dowels are then cut to length and milled to shape and with their special tip. Finally the raw sticks are cured using a secret process Jeff developed over the course of years, which renders them SUPER TOUGH and durable, so that they can outlast other sticks even under the heaviest drumming conditions.

These are "nude" sticks, meaning they have no wax, shellac or other finish applied to them. These sticks feature the popular "5A" tip style, and are 405mm long (just under 16 inches) by 15.3mm (0.60 inches) in diameter. Drumsticks will either be lighter in color or slightly darker, depending on whether they were made from the heart wood or sap wood of the hickory logs - the coloration of the wood does not affect their durability.
