  • Strange drum sticks- looked like paint paddles?

    Someone here once posted a link to some odd drumsticks that were terje friendly.

    I'm interested in that product too, for personal reasons...

    Vic Firth "Blades" if I remember correctly. Stick-type handle and "paddle" at the playing end. All plastic. If you use the flat side, it's a little louder than a brush, using the edge of the paddle on cymbals gives a stick-like sound/response albeit much quieter.

    More useless info: a guy in Kansas City invented them. He got the idea while painting a house and messing around with the paint stirring sticks he got with the paint. He built a prototype and sold the concept to Vic Firth. Chaaaaaa Ching!

    Only in OS's case, instead of generating recursive fractals, it's simply that the mass of **************** which fills him is greater than the mass of a similar, hypothetical mass of **************** at 0 degrees Kelvin.<br />

    I call this phenominon &quot;dark ****************,&quot; and while it is useful to explain OS, dark **************** violates a number of laws we know about matter.<br />

      The guy that invented these is the drummer in my band. I was thinking, maybe I could invent an air guitar pick. Manufacturing costs would be really low. What do you think?

        I like it, the "air guitar pick".

        Small world on the "blades" guy and your band. Hope I got most of my facts somewhere in the ballpark. My folks still live in KC and sent me a KC Star article on the guy.

          Vic Firth's other product line is rolling pins...
