Since founded in 1972, Drum Workshop has been on the cutting-edge of technology when it comes to their drums, pedals, and hardware. But in 2007, DW took a step into the unknown, by using their 35 years of experience as one of the world's leading manufactures, in creating their very own line of sticks. The result is "3 Drumsticks", hoping to change the standards of what we consider an ordinary drumstick.
3 Drumsticks was created with the intent to have the highest-quality, all-hickory drumsticks available. They backed this up by putting the sticks through four rigorous tests to assure the customer is getting a stick equal in superior quality and consistency. These tests include:
-Laser Testing for Straightness: To make sure your sticks are in true.
-Weight Matching: To have equal weight between all sticks in the pair.
-Pitch Matching: This contributes to a consistent drum sound, and stick click sound.
-Balance Matching: This gives every stick in the pair the same feel.
After testing, the sticks get labeled upon their characteristics, then get sent to the sorting bin. This is were each labeled stick gets matched in pairs of 3, packaged, and shipped to its retail destination.
Here is a first-hand demonstration by one of the Reps. of 3 Drumsticks, Jim Destefano:
The sticks come in today's most popular sizes:
-Tip styles include:
(Olive available in Nylon tip)
The question most people tend to ask is "why in pairs of three?". Well the answer is logical, when you break a stick, especially one that is matched to the other, you can't just pick up another stick expecting the same feel and sound. That's why you get a third stick, it's kind of like your "spare tire". A great concept when using such a drummer-specific drumstick.
