Regal Tip Classic Series 9A Drum Sticks
Regal Tip's 9A drumsticks are great for creating that Tony William's sound which comes from using bigger sticks. The size of the shafts creates a nice bounce off of the tom heads producing a big open sound while the tips are a combination round/barrel shape producing a very unique cymbal sound.
These sticks are great for creating a dirty Jazz sound with big drums and flat cymbals, have enough size to carry big bands and can easily be used on Rock or Funk tunes. The large shafts create a sharp tick which cuts through the band on rim-clicks and they’ve got a great clave sound when you flip the sticks over for Latin tunes. The shape of the tips prevent chipping and start to take the shape of a tear drop over time which only adds to their articulation. With large shafts equaling greater durability, you really can use one pair of these sticks for years on end.
