The Promark BYOS FireGrain stick is engineered to function as a traditional marching implement and a well-balanced show style trick stick with increased durability. Featuring a medium taper and large round bead, this stick will provide the necessary output volume needed for the marching activity both indoor or out. The grip ring on the butt end provides a comfortable grip while executing stick tricks. 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.
