Pro-Mark Neil Peart Autograph Series Drumsticks are the oak 747 wood tip. Rush drummer Peart is one of the most influential drummers in contemporary music. And Neil continues to take the art form to even greater heights.
Neil's signature 747's are like a 5A, but longer, with a thicker taper and larger tip. These versatile sticks may be used in quiet applications or when more volume is required. They're heavier in weight than the hickory version.

I have been using these sticks for about 6 or 7 years now. They are excellent for when you need volume. They are extremely durable. I can go about 3 or so months with out having to replace them. if you are looking for a small but heavy stick these are for you. trust me you can't go wrong with these. Come on, there good enough for Peart nuff said...
been using this sticks for 3 months now and have 7 pair and have been very satisfied with them. the balance, size and striking is excellent.
They're awesome! I've got these for 4 months now and the wear and tear hasn't stopped these superdudes! My only regret is that the sticks don't absorb a lot of shocks. Overall... AWESOME!!!A total must for drummers who like hitting hard and fast!
I started playing with these 24 years ago, having no idea peart played them Pretty cool to find out years later the master chooses them as well. But a double edge sword. Now when I go to buy them or play them, people will think its because they are his choice as wel. But who cares my hands are molded to them. They last, they make your drums and cymbals sound great.... what more need be said?
I have been playing with a pair of Neil Peart Pro-Mark 5A's for about a month and a half now, and have not broken a single stick! They havn't even really flaked, just small dents! They have great balance and feel, and a thick neck so they don't break easily. The tip has a great feel to it, and doesn't chip, and provides a good rebound. They aren't too heavy, and not too light. All in all a very nice pair of sticks! Pro-Mark 4 life!!
In my 14 years of drumming, I have tried many sticks, and these are some of the most sturdy and durable sticks I've ever used. I've had sticks break in a few hours, but these have lasted, and continue to last. Japanese Oak is some of the best wood for drum sticks. These sticks are great. DEFINATELY try them if ou are having trouble with other brands.
These sticks are the best I have ever gotten my hands on. I've tried about 7 different kinds, and these are by far the only light weight, and durable sticks I've used. I have an electric kit and an acoustic, and the noise these produce on the acoustic is totally unique. I would recommend these to any intermediate player who likes powerful light-weight sticks.
I bought these drumsticks because I freakin love Neil Peart. Some of the things I noticed when I was playing with these on my electic set was that they were really bouncy on the pads. So if I wanted to do a drum roll they were really bouncy and they are really light too. so if you want some good sticks then I would suggest these.
neil is my biggest influence and i can honestly say even if these sticks werent his signature i would still love these sticks , perfect, my teacher tryed to persuede me to vics but i kept comin back to these!
The Neil Peart Autograph Series Drumsticks are very comfortable with the classic "Peart" feel. The Snakes and Arrows design gives the sticks a distinct look, plus you have the reliability with Pro-Marks oak wood (long lasting wood!!!!) When playing, the sticks are very versitile when playing on the cymbals with nice tight staccato reaction.
