Promark Dame Evelyn Glennie Mallet
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!
Promark's patented mallet core molding process ensures consistency every time! Using the most sophisticated digital machines available, every single aspect of the core is perfected, from hardness to weight and shape, so that the sound, feel, and playability are consistent too. D’Addario’s world-class string making techniques were the inspiration behind Promark's new winding process that increases the life of wrap material. No more worrying about your mallets wearing out!
