Promark Hickory 747 Rock Wood Tip Drumsticks
Many Metal drummers use Promark sticks because they don’t break as often as other brands. Using only the highest quality hickory to make their sticks, Promark's 747 "Rock" sticks are built tough and best used for extreme music genres like Metal. The oval tips have a large surface area to absorb blows and prevent chipping and even if you do manage to chip the tips, there’s still a lot of surface area left to make contact with the drum or cymbal. The shafts of these sticks don’t seem to shred as easily as others and they have a thick taper which can withstand a lot of high-hat playing. These sticks are very solid and can withstand a lot of abuse.
