These sticks are made of hickory and they stand out for their excellent performance in speed, rebound and volume. The drumstick is longer than usual, has a sharper tip for accurate beating during fast tempo sections, balance is weighted towards the tip for extra power and rebound. Finished with bee wax. The logo is engraved by laser so it won’t fade with sweat or grinding. “I’ve developed my own signature model, the BLASTOPHILIA sticks, mainly destined to the extreme drummer. This collaboration between drummer and artisan began in December of 2010 and during this time by experimenting and focusing on the purpose to help the extreme drummer, the BLASTOPHILIA’s were born” – Diogo Pereira dixit.
