Our drumsticks are made from selected woods of european hornbeam and american hickory. Hornbeam is a straight growing hard timber which has proved itself for manufacture of drumsticks since many years. Much harder and denser is hickory which has a longer service life than hornbeam. The american hickory we offer is further broken down to the premium and economy categories (economy quality may show specific color variations). Through the precisely worked and extremely thin sealed surface with a watersoluble lacquer you attain a very good grip. With all that you receive a drumstick quality which is excellent !
