I used to play with Hot Rods, but the Cool Rods sound better and crisper to me. Just like a stick, but slightly quieter. Brings more guts out of the snare than a regular stick as well. Very clean though, and no muddled sound, do NOT try and make them yourself, or you will only get muddled sounds.

In the praise & worship group I play in, it's always a challenge to create energy while not creating more volume than the setting can handle. I tried Cool Rods after having already used Promark's Hot Rods with some success. The Cool Rods simply did not hold up for me. The tendency for the dowells to splay out and brake off was much greater with Cool Rods. I've gone back to using brushes on the very soft stuff and continue to use Hot Rods for the moderate volume songs and have started using Lightning Rods for the somewhat louder things. But in fairness to ProMark and because I really like the other Rods, Cool Rods may be exactly what you need if you have a natural light touch.

          Sound great on the cymbals - cool on the skins.

          By Cliff Yankovich

          from Ada, MI

          Comments about PROMARK Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

          Bought my first pair of these a couple of years ago and am very happy with them. Originally got them so my practice would be a little quieter. Mission accomplished - sound volume was diminished. Then I really began to appreciate the texture they brought to playing, especially the cool sounds I could get from my cymbals. I don't do very well with brushes, but these are a great in between - they are the just right alternative for me between sticks n brushes. I tried the Vater Bamboo Splash but the individual dowels are much bigger and they have a heavier sound = plus they were harder to use even with my big hands, so I returned to the Cool Rods - try a pair, you might really like 'em.

          Great for sound. Not very Durable but Great for sound!

          from Houston

          Comments about PROMARK Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

          Cool rods are great for sound, about 25% lower volume. They are great for getting a lower volume mix with the band but need taping like a hockey stick to about 3/4 to the tip to have good durability. I do recommend them.

          Just What The Congregation Ordered

          By Ron-Poyp0

          from Sanford, NC

          Comments about PROMARK Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

          Playing Christian contemporary music for more than 10 years now has had its challenges - especially when I'm an advocate of acoustic drums and cymbals.Cool rods allow me to play when real playing is needed, yet not over power the rest of the band and especially the congregation. Have sat behind electronic drums and admit they are great for practice, but I still prefer my great acoustic set for the true sound and variation that cannot be duplicated electronically. Great job Pro-Mark

          Great but not durable

          By Kenny Stainton

          from Houston

          Comments about PROMARK Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

          Cool rods are very nice but not very durable. They last much longer if you tape em up like a hockey stick. The way they break is by crashing the side of the cymbols and chipping away at the dowels. If you aviod this and tape them up they last a good while and sound great with about 25% lower volume than regular sticks.

          nice sound, short life expectancy

          Comments about PROMARK Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

          these rods have a great soft sound, but they just don't last. i purchased these sticks about a week or so ago, and one of the dowels have broken already. if you have the money to keep buying new cool rods, go for it, but otherwise only buy them if you need them (or be extremely gentle with them)
