Overview

Pro-Mark Japanese white oak drumsticks are 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.

Features
  • Harder than hickory
  • Resists chipping
  • Won't wear soft
  • Hand-finished

I've always been a big fan of pro-mark products. I use the nylon tipped 747 Rock sticks for most of my drumming needs. I had bought a set of the Japanese White Oak's and was very impressed, but when I went back to get more, all they had was American Hickory. I'm not a hard hitter, but the angle that I hit my hi-hats tend to chip and eat away my sticks. I broke three sets of the American Hickory sticks in one month, my Japanese Oaks have been going strong for 3-4 months. If you want a high quality stick that is not only going to last a long time, but sound great time and time again, go with the Japanese Oak.

I played a two day gig over the weekend and went through two pairs of these. They are good if you are a light player but if you play hard on your ride like I do, they will stap in half or split down the middle.

Amazing Sticks

By timothy

from Harrisburg, PA

Love these sticks! I used them for a four hour show and they are not chipping and will be used again for my next show. I usually go through at least two pair of sticks in a three hour show. Last weekend I used these for the first time and they still have life to go! My sticks usually get worn out quick, either chipping from the hi hat or in the middle of the stick from rim shots. These are not yet chipping and have a few dents from rim shots, but by no means are they about to break yet!

They are the Longest lasting sticks I have ever had

By Kirk

from Ohio

We'll I currently play in a band I have sticks for gigs and sticks for practicing and I can use these sticks for both because I don't have to worry about them breaking pretty good sticks for the price.

Pro-Mark Japanese White Oak Drumsticks 747's

By Rikki Condren

from Dallas, Texas

Great sticks! They are really well balanced with an acorn shaped tip. I bought both the nylon and wood tipped sticks so I could try them against each other and I really like the wood tips, even though I normally prefer nylon tipped sticks. I bought the 747, meaning to purchase the 742's, but I ended up loving them! I highly recommend these sticks.

Pro-Mark says that these sticks are strong and resistant.... that was before

By Miguel Rojas

from California

I used these sticks (Wood 5B) since 2008 when I played with a more aggressive style and they lasted more! Over the years I have learned that you don't need to play hard, the right angle to hit the cymbals and stuff, but it seems that these sticks over time Pro-Mark has made them weaker, the last three pairs I've had have been quickly broken, I bought a pair 3 days ago, i just play once and I literally for half an hour and the heavier song I play was Animals by Muse. Today, i only played a pattern on the ride and when i hit the bell the stick broke! I really like these sticks for the weight, width, rebound and stuff, but pay this price for a stick that now breaks only with 6 or 7 songs... just no.

Best Stick I've Ever Used

By Kevin McGovern

from Allentown, PA

I started on Firth, tried many brands of hickory sticks, all OK. Got a pair of these in a Jazz size one day on a whim. Love at first sight--they feel denser and stiffer in the hand than hickory right off. Made my earlier work seem almost tentative, the Oak gives you a real, authoritative strike. Because they are stiffer, they seem to me to be quicker on the rebound. Not that I'm any 6000 bpm ace, but I feel like I can do more with these on fills around the kit than I could before. I like the minimal finish they come with, though I have found a rubbing with 0000 steel wool seems to just break the finish, giving a "naked wood" feel to the sticks. Again, being an Oldies/Jazz guy, sweaty, blistering hands isn't a problem. But anyone wanting to try something different for their playing or sound should give the Pro-Mark Shira Kashi Oak sticks--in whatever size or tip--a try.

Best Bang For The Bucks

By WARREN WRIGHT

from Wilson, Oklahoma

Ive played the Pro-Mark Oak sticks now for well over 5 years and these are the best sticks Ive ever used. Ive got one pair of the 7A Nylon tip sticks that are still in service after 6 years and all Ive had to do is use a bit of sandpaper to smooth the few cymbal edge cuts on the shaft. October of 2010 I picked up a brick of the 727s - wood tip Oak sticks...and I just gave a buddy of mine 10 pair of them because he doesnt have the funds to buy new ones and all 10 pair are still very serviceable sticks, albeit needing a bit of the sandpaper to smooth out cymbal edge cuts. I play medium hard to soft...big band swing, soft jazz, traditional country, top 40 country and 50s and 60s rock and no broken sticks ever.

Best Wooden Sticks!!

By Metallica Drummer

from Fremont, CA

first of all, i thought i was a more zildjian stick guy. usually i would use the 5B nylon tips, tre cool signature, and vic firth 5B nylon. i wanted to try something new (considering my local store didnt carry the zildjian 5b nylons anymore, and the vic firth wasnt my favorite (but still good)), so i bought the 5B Nylon Tip Japanese Oak, and i am just HOOKED! they give me very very nice sound on the entire kit, cymbals and all, and they have very nice resistance to chipping, and i hit very hard. i believe im using pro mark from now on. BUY THESE AMAZING STICKS!

Long lasting sticks, for the same price as all the rest.

By Riley

from Niles, Michigan

A couple months ago, I was looking for new drum sticks. Being unsatisfied with previous drumsticks I had been using, I decided to try Pro Mark, and came across these. I read that they were more durable, and I have to admit, I was skeptical at first, but I ordered them anyway. Not too long afterwards, they came in the mail, and they didn't feel heavier than the previous sticks I had (both 2B and 5B sized, with wood tips) so I thought, "Eh, whatever, they'll probably last just as long as the rest of the sticks do." To my surprise, they actually lasted a lot longer than all the other sticks I've used. So, if you're looking for a much more durable stick, without any negativity when transitioning to a new stick. BUY THESE. You will not be sorry.
