Zildjian Announces Big Band Jazz Model Drumstick
By Guest |
At the Winter NAMM show, Zildjian announced the new Big Band Jazz Model Drumstick.
Designed with input from noted Educator Steve Fidyk, the Big Band Jazz Model Drumstick features a reverse tapered butt--end (smaller at the end than in the middle of the stick), which provides a comfortable feel and distinctive balance that provides extra "swing" to the stick. The elongated oval bead provides dark and full ride cymbal tones and full drum sounds. Measuring 15 15/16 inches long and 0.505 inches in the grip area, this full size of the stick provides enough heft to drive a big band while the long taper provides a great deal of sensitivity. The Big Band Jazz Model Drumstick is constructed from U.S. Select Hickory at the Zildjian Stick Factory in Moundville, AL.
Steve Fidyk is the Director of Drumset Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park and George Mason University. Steve has performed with the Woody Herman Orchestra, Maureen McGovern and a host of others.
List Price (per pair): $12.60
