Its the SD2 BOLERO
Round tip. Perfect for light jazz‚ studio‚ orchestral and pit work.
L = 15 3/4" | Dia. = .635"
I have even found a 12 pack of these very cheap on ebay.
Anyone have ever seem these personally? maybe checked them out?
PS - I have a stupid doubt, that may sound VERY dumb = a diameter of .635" is actually THICKER than a .577", right???
Yes, .635 is thicker than .577.
I have used the SD2 Bolero stick continually for probably 12 years or more. Needless to say, I like it very much. The tip is the main attraction for me, and I like the balance a lot too. I gravitate towards thicker sticks but I have been looking for something slightly slimmer, albeit with the other characteristics of this stick, for years! I'm really fussy about sticks BTW - and once the SD2 has got worn down the balance degrades for me & I usually pass them on to students.
I love the fact they're Maple too. I have never managed to play with Oak or Hickory.
