      Hornets Raw Drumsticks (491267)

Drumsticks that provide playing comfort, innovation, and have multiple uses!

The Hornet Raw drumsticks offer an ergonomic, contoured handle and proprietary rubber o-rings designed to relieve forearm pressure and reduce shock to the wrist. Made from first quality American hickory, these drumsticks fit comfortably in the hand to function as a natural extension of the drummer's arm.

The raised handle on the drumstick allows the thumb to relax, reducing strain and simultaneously increasing stamina. The patented use of o-rings reduces vibration and shock to the wrist, decreasing the risk of the long-term injuries so many drummers have to deal with (Carpal Tunnel, Tendonitis, etc.) the o-rings act as an excellent grip. When the hand becomes sweaty, sticks can get away from you, but the o-rings are designed to catch your hand and prevent the stick from slipping. Using the butt end of the sticks on cymbals creates a mallet-like effect perfect for cymbal rolls. Because of the o-rings, you always know exactly where your hand is on the stick without ever having to look down.

  • Contoured handle helps reduce forearm tension

  • Innovative and comfortable

    As reviewed by William Rogers on 1/22/2013

    These sticks seem to perform exactly as described. Ball tips are great for tight rolls and durable. The raised handle/grip is perfectly positioned at the balance point of the stick where I know I should play for more effortless speed but it doesn't quite feel natural for me yet. That's fine because they are equally comfortable if you grip them just below the raised area. Price is high but I get a lot of mileage out of my sticks these days playing with a lighter force and more finesse.

  • Hornets raw

    As reviewed by David Marcotte on 10/25/2012

    They work pretty good. They are a little longer than a regular stick. The larger ends makes them swing a little faster and the Orings do absorb some of the vibration. The tips are round instead of the tear drop shape so they seem better suited for the electric drums I play. It took me a bit to get used to the larger area of the grip but it does make the stick move faster. I would buy these again.

  • Been using these for years

    As reviewed by Les on 9/12/2014

    I found these sticks many years ago at the NAMM show in LA and I've been sold ever since. Well balanced and no issues of fatigued late into a set. Great for drummers who's hands get sweaty and fewer dropped sticks. I would like to try a pair with nylon tips but overall the round head on the seems do less damage to the drum heads. Each set is computer matched so it's a good idea to buy in different colors for use.
