Promark Performer Series Large Gong Beater
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 Performer Series Gong Mallets feature sculpted and well balanced American Hickory handles with a leather wrist strap, ideal for achieving a full gong sound. Hickory isn't the most popular wood choice for no reason, it produces amazing resilience, responsiveness, durability and gives a classic feel. The wool wrapped hockey puck style core is designed to enhance the tonal response of small and medium sized gongs.
