Promark Anton Fig Sticks
Percussion instructor and shop owner Herb Brochestein founded Promark back in 1957, in Houston, Texas where it's still based today! Since it's first years, Promark has became a widely known stick company, being the first company to introduce Japanese Shira-Kashi white oak into the American market, successfully becoming the only company to market oak sticks in the United States, and, in 2011, they became part of D'Addario. More recently, they have chosen to use non-endangered wood and a "green" finishing process, this makes their sticks and manufacturing process safer to each of their players and to the environment!
The Promark Anton Fig ActiveGrip 595 Drumsticks feature a large round wooden tip with a short taper on a ActiveGrip finished hickory shaft. The wood tip provides high output sound projection, while the short taper offers optimised power and speed. Hickory isn't the most popular wood choice for no reason, it produces amazing resilience, responsiveness, durability and classic feel.
What really sets these sticks aside from the rest is Promark's patented heat activated grip, ActiveGrip is a coating solution that reacts to body temperature, getting tackier as a player's hands sweat and their body temperature rises! With this feature you are able to obtain complete control when you need it most, so no matter how hard you play, ActiveGrip works even harder to help you handle it, whilst adding no additional weight to the stick.
