Multi rods brush sticks produce a softer sound than a regular drumstick, but cut through a mix better than brushes. These sticks are made of wrapped wood dowels with a natural rebound and a comfortable rubber grip.

I just recieved my multi rod sticks in the mail two weeks ago. They are great for practice and playing in quiet situations for events (or in church like me). They have the weight of about a 5A or 7A stick with a good rebound also. Only down-fall is that from the first day just one stick out of the pair has been rebellious and the rods tend to slip out which causes the other ones to shift in the rubber grip. However, when working properly, the feel, grip and sound is great! I will buy again.

I bought these for quiet gigs like weddings, this is the second pair I have bought and both pairs have rods separating and start extending beyond the tip. Every 2-3 songs you have to push them back in and there is no way to tape them or stop this from happening. They are durable and don't dent or splinter as fast as others I have tried but I'll be trying a different manufacturer for my next purchase.

Features: zero! Horrible quality. NO reliability. The very first time these "rods" were used they just came apart! The "toothpick" thin rods felt like playing with uncooked spaghetti noodles. The material? used to keep them together did not hold. In fact, it came off with a quickness. What a waste of money and to top it off what a nightmare trying to get them once they were delivered to my Local store. These things should not exist!
Sorry guys but these rods suck! They became useless in the first 10 mins of moderate playing. Do yourself a favor and invest in either hot rods or lightning rods.
I use sound percussions stands, but with hot rods spend the extra couple bucks and get the name brand. These don't have same rebound, don't have the tonal qualities you're looking for, and they come apart easily. I bought a set of these (for not much less than the name brands) and they started coming apart during my first use! While the brand name hot rods might chip away over time these have entire sticks flying out of the bundle during play (and I don't play hard, especially when I use hot rods). Also, the sheath/tape holding the bundle together slips off while you play too. Again, these aren't issues I had after playing with these hot rods for a while, but during my first use. Don't buy them.
So, I do play these...and they do come apart. I'm removing the black base cap and going to apply a bit of Elmer's Glue there. That should make these solid performers.
Sound, control, etc.; all there. Maybe I was unlucky, but mine keep losing the rods from the bundle as if not tight. I can push them in of course, but they end up protruding about two inches after about a song. No, I'm not expecting them to accept heavy metal punishment. Perhaps quality control is an issue? All I'd say is check the ones you buy, and as such, has not put me off trying another set. I am sure GC would warranty them (it happened immediately), but I will probably wear them out before getting back to the store.
I don't own these, but my drum teacher bought them when he was in a hurry. He used them that day, they seemed fine. Next week,they completely fell apart. The didn't hold at all. I had to go out and buy my own rods. My advice: Stay away from anything made by sound percussion.
I bought these because I needed to have a pair for my church service the next day. The GC was out of the Pro Mark Hot Rods that I use regularly. I decided to give these a try. What a mistake. The rods kept sliding out of the stick. I was pretty disappointed with this. I thought it may have been a bad pair, but after reading the reviews, I must say that Sound Percussion should be made aware of this, and get the problem resolved.
i definitly reccomend these to anyone. one of the other reviews stated that after rough playing they start to slip out of the sleeve. my fix was to put simple masking tape around the joint. i also tightly wrapped tape about one inch from the end (the end that hits the drum). it tends to hold the bamboo tighter anf they give a better response.
These are nice for a lighter sound when sticks are too heavy, but they don't last! I had mine for a couple of practices before I had to throw them out because about 1/3 of the individual rods broke and the rubber hand grip on one of them came off.
i (personally) love these sticks,but like many of drumers i am unaware of the sound waves that are supposed to come out,mostly because these are my first pair of any kind of multi-rods,im not sure if there are loud enough but,of course thats the purpose of them.You are supposed to repace these every now and then,so don't complain if they start to break,(well,you are pounding them in to metal,every time you play soo... what do you expect?)They are the weight of a good 5A hickory stick and easy enough to have a pretty good rebound. Overall i suggest any one to buy these sticks (only if you want to play a good slow song with a asome beat,not suggested for drumers who are know to go crazy.) there a great buy for dumers who have a budget.
