Re: Pro-Mark change?
I just read on Drum! magazine that ProMark has come out with a new line of sticks called Select Balance. It's wood tip sticks for now, nylons soon to come. The idea is to provide a forward balanced stick and a rebound balanced stick in 5 of the most popular diameters, from .535" to .595". They didn't mention anything about the lengths of the sticks though. They will be quarter-sawn, weight matched to within 1.5 grams, and tone sorted to within 6 hertz of each other, which is supposed to be the best in the industry. Also, the tip is teardrop style. I sound like an advertisement...sorry.
They just became available today. I'm going to pro-mark online to check them out.
