You can rest assured that every time you pickup up a Promark stick, you are picking up one of the most lovingly crafted pieces of equipment in the world. From planting and cutting down their own sustainable trees, manufacturing and treating woods in their own purpose-built factories, then crafting sticks to strict self-imposed processing requirements. The Promark Shira Kashi Oak 5B nylon tip drumstick is designed to allow heavy hitting drummers to play with articulation and finesse.
The 5B is a standard diameter drumstick for those who like to pound the skins with consistent force. A large general-purpose stick for rock, pop, punk and pop, the thickness of the 5B is perfect for when a 5A is too small, and a 2B is too big. Though the .590" diameter may be large for some, Promark have shaped the sticks with a medium taper, giving it a familiar and comfortable grip in the hand that responds well with a balanced playing feel and rebound. The nylon tip provides a brighter, more articulate sound, making it suitable for a wide range of tonal applications.
Shira Kashi Oak is a dense and heavy wood providing a sturdy feel in your hand, and excellent ride cymbal articulation. Sticks made of this Japanese Oak are exceptionally durable and usually last longer than other types of wood, which is perfect for session players and gigging drummers who demand longevity, just as much as consistency.
For over 50 years, Promark has been one of the world’s leading manufacturers of drumsticks, mallets, and percussion accessories. Owned and operated by D'Addario & Co., the Houston, Texas based Promark produces products used globally by the greatest drummers and percussionists in the world, including Neal Peart, Phil Collins, Simon Phillips, Ringo Starr, and many more.
