Drumsticks designed with selected hickory wood, finished in natural bee wax polished (MISSOM ® eco-friendly). Pairs strictly matched by weight. "These drumsticks are made in Hickory wood and are balanced between model 5A and 7A, however, they are somewhat thinner, lighter and longer than the common 5A. The fact that they are longer, allows a more easy physical effort and greater assertiveness in parts of the drumsy. By not being as lightweight as 7A, they provide a weight and an ideal balance for a blow stronger (when necessary). The tip of the stick is slightly small for greater accuracy" - Xines dixit.
