Promark's most durable Classic 5A ever. FireGrain is a revolutionary heat-tempering process that transforms ordinary hickory drumsticks into precision tools with unprecedented durability. While keeping their original weight, balance, and attack, Promark FireGrain sticks allow drummers to hit harder and play longer, naturally. No excess vibration, no space age gimmicks, just natural hickory, hardened by flame. Hickory is the most popular wood choice for drumsticks due to its resilience, responsiveness, durability, and classic feel. Length: 16" & Diameter: 0.551". Oval wood tip provides a dark, warm tone suited for multiple applications. All Promark drumsticks are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA at our Texas facility to the most stringent quality controls in the industry.
