This unique hybrid snare stick which consists of a hollow carbon fiber tube for the center portion of the stick, joined with a hornwood™ front shoulder/tip, and hornwood™ butt end. The result, is a revolutionary new drum stick with nearly 100% more rebound than average wood stick.
Classic signature Freer shape with slight taper in back and round ball bead. Ultra select hickory, precision matched, pitched and weighed. All around general stick perfect for anything and my daily "go to" stick in the Cleveland Orchestra. Effortless to roll with and perfect size bead to enable a super wide dynamic range.
The new medium orchestral stick was conceived and designed to be an in between model to bridge the gap between my general orchestral and light orchestral. The length is right in between and so is the weight and tip of the stick. The shoulder is elongated just enough that the response feels good at any dynamic. Our Hornwood™ is very dense and hard and adds a couple grams of weight as well. The feel is something like rosewood or ebony but without the excessive vibration and low pitch that come with those woods. It is also extremely durable and will likely last you a lifetime if cared for properly. This makes it a perfect stick for Delecluse etudes and other concert style etudes where you have extremes of dynamics and articulation. Excellent choice for many excerpts too such as Capriccio Espagnol and Nielsen Clarinet Concerto for example.
