Default List of Custom Drum Stick Companies

Anyone know where I might find a list of many custom drum stick companies?
I'm not looking for the places that just engrave - I need a custom dimension stick built.

I have tried two companies that have never responded. I have to keep trying - I really need this custom dimension.

Any links greatly appreciated.

I don't know any companies but I am curious what kind of size/shape your stick would have to be then?

Same, im very curious. Could try the smaller stick companies but could cost a fair bit.

Here's my contribution

You can always ask Larry at http://www.loscabosdrumsticks.com I think they will do it but you'will need to order many dozens.

The bigger stick companies are probably not going to be of any help to you(due to production demands it would not be efficient to set their equipment up for small quantities of custom sticks).

However, this company a few miles from me(American Drum....well known for their custom mallots and re-wrapping of mallots) may be able to help you. I've visited them a few times, purchased sticks and toured their shop(they're still turning sticks by hand). They state that "most orders including specialty orders" are shipped same day. So, this would most likely be your best bet. They also do custom printing as well. Good luck.

Thanks.

By the way, the specs I'm looking for are:

- Thin - .45 to .49"
- Lightweight wood
- Round nylon tip - and not the tiny round nylon tips, but a medium size/significant one

Nothing like this exists.

You could try Kenner Custom Drumsticks.

Owned/run by Don Kenner in Kentucky, U.S.A.

The last phone # I had for them is:

859-635-5218

Address:
Kenner Custom drumsticks
RT #1 Box 150
California, Kentucky
41007

They make EXCELLENT quality sticks, great durability, and a great feel.

They offer 2 tapers and 23 different tip styles as "normal" stick offerings.

I would assume they could make you a custom designed stick, as he adjusted one of his usual designs to be a little different than normal for me.

It turned out great, and I was very happy with them.

I ordered from him a few times, and then I needed something different, and could get it from a normal source, but that's the only reason I haven't used their sticks as of late.

The sticks lasted a loooong time too, so if you're not a heavy player, they'll really last a good long time.

Good luck getting what you need done, I hope this can help.

I just found these guys online...
http://www.foxydrummer.com
They sent me a few samples to try out. The sticks were decent, and they do custom pain jobs and they can get really detailed as far as the artwork they can stamp on the sticks. They can print better than some of the major companies.

I am thinking of getting some to sell as merch on my website.

Drum Village does not exist anymore. That was my company when I still lived in the US.
Sorry, I probably could have done it for you.

Its absolutelly no problem for me. I made drumsticks with custom dimensions - example:

custom length, diameter, neck, shoulder, ...
tip: ball, oval, acorn vith your dimension, ...
your modification: groove neck, .....

Your custom model putting to my database for later repeat production. More on the my web www.rstick.com - please used Google translator - website is only Czech language.
