I also ordered some promark sticks and noticed they're a little different than the ones I've always loved. Maybe I got a dud pair or are the winds of dadario change coming and if so, what are they? Very curious.
D'addario has been the parent company of Evans for a long time. They recently added ProMark to their family though. It seems like lately they decided to make the D'Addario brand more known however.
Btw, D'addario makes great instrumental strings as well for guitar, bass, violin, etc. They also own Rico which makes reeds for Saxes and stuff, and planet waves which makes accessories.
