Balanced and carefully crafted using hand-selected white oak. Grown in the mountainous regions of Japan, this particular species of oak is a harder wood than hickory and will take more wear, tear, and punishment. It resists chipping and wearing soft. Made with Pro-Mark's exclusive Millennium II manufacturing process, each stick is hand-finished and hand-inspected. The result is a strength and durability no other stick can match.

Comments about PROMARK 3-Pair Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:
I have been drumming for more than half of my life. For the longest time, i didn't have a "brand" or "style" of stick that i used, and then i really started getting into the Dave Matthews Band with Carter Beauford on the drums as well as in the spotlight of my focus. Eventually sticking with the Pro-Mark Millennium 2, American Hickory, 5B nylon tip. That kept me going before evolving to the feel, weight, speed and smoothness of the Pro-Mark "the Natural" 747rock, nylon tip, drumsticks. I fell in love with those, until i went for my last pair of them and within the first minute of a song, i had one of them completely break or, chunk off. Well, the next time i bought sticks, i tried something new. The Shira Kashi Japanese white Oak, 747 nylon tip. Pretty much the same size and feel, but i did notice that they were a bit heavier, and they seemed more dense, but i bought 3 pairs at about $17 a piece, and even at that price, i felt that they were worth it. They last a long time. They don't break off like some woods do, and really, odds are, that when you're through with a set, they'll still be intact. Other than the weight being a little higher (which was easy to get used to), the Japanese oak Pro-Mark sticks, at the 747 size, are a great, durable, all around stick to keep at your kit.
