Default Gloss lacquer finish sticks

I've been a Regal Tip user for a while and like the glossy lacquer finish. I was at GC and the Zildjian Dennis Chambers were recommended to me because they had that same lacquer finish since Regal Tip can be difficult to find. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any other sticks with the same thicker glossy lacquer finish to them?

Hot Sticks have a lacquer finish on some models. Not a to. Of different sizes but still really nice sticks.

Years ago, it used to be so easy to find almost any stick with a similar finish. I guess that most of them were either not environmentally friendly and/or too expensive to produce.

It's been a long while since I've tried the Chamber's stick but I do not recall it being similar in finish to Regal Tip. Interestingly, DC used to endorse Regal Tip so I could understand him requesting a similar finish. Do try them though because I am not up to date on what is current.

A thread here mention dipping sticks in urethane to get a similar feel to a Regal Tip.

I like the Regal Tip feel too but ultimately, I have found that ProMark's Pro Grip is even better for me. If you want another alternative, maybe try that. Unfortunately, if you don't use 5A, 5B or 747, the ProGrip is not available.

I got a pair of the Dennis Chamber sticks and yes they do have the same finish. Though I contacted Zildjian to see if they make another one with the finish and turns out they do not, that's the only one with it.

Glad to hear that it worked out for you!

I am very surprised that they only do that one pair in that finish though. How odd that they don't do it across the line for some other alternatives. I would love to see the finish on other models.
