Horacio is noted for his musical control and creativity and this stick really reflects these attributes. Featuring Zildjian's smallest bead, this stick provides very clear and pinpoint tonality. This drumstick offers a solid feel. The long taper to small round bead, creates a drumstick that "dances" in a controlled fashion on instruments. A double coating of lacquer also gives the stick a grippy feel.

A native of Havana, Cuba, Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez's talent became evident early on at an age of 12, he was accepted into the prestigious Escuela Nacional de Arte, where he majored in drums and percussion.

He has played with musicians ranging from Gonzalo Rubalacaba to Michel Camilo to Carlos Santana to Tito Puente's Tropi-Jazz All-Stars. His distinct drumming style, the potent mixture of Afro Cuban and jazz elements, has made him an artist of extraordinary power and musical versatility.

Comments about Zildjian Horacio Hernandez Artist Series Drumsticks:

These sticks are amazing, i found out after i had used them for a week and i found out the true potential of these sticks. I play in a jazz big band, and they are great because they really do make the tonal control great, also it makes it easy to have really big contrasts in the loudness and soft of my drum playing. Theses sticks are a must have in my book, and guitar center should DEFINITELY publisize these sticks much more. Thanks TJ
