Promark's Hot Rod Sticks provide drummers with an innovative drumstick option for crafting fresh acoustic sounds. Constructed of 19 premium birch dowels, the Hot Rods offer drummers a lively, natural rebound and lighter sound than standard drumsticks. Promark, now a proud member of the D'Addario family of brands, has been an industry leader in drumstick design and manufacturing for over 60 years.

Reduced Volume for Any Venue

With their unique multi-dowel design, Hot Rods produce a lighter sound than regular drumsticks, allowing drummers to explore new dimensions of tone in acoustic and low-volume settings. The bundled birch dowels provide a crisp attack while dampening volume, making Hot Rods ideal for small clubs, coffeehouses, acoustic gigs, and recording. Hot Rods give drummers tonal flexibility for any venue.

Innovative Texture and Rebound

Promark Hot Rods feature 19 select birch dowels wrapped together near the shoulder of the stick, providing an innovative texture and lively rebound. The dowel design produces a variety of articulations not possible with standard drumsticks. Drummers can create dynamic sounds by striking different parts of the bundle. The dowels also have a natural rebound, allowing for effortless drum rolls and rhythmic patterns.

A Sound for Every Style

Originally developed as an alternative for drummers wanting a lighter sound than drumsticks but more attack than brushes, Hot Rods have become popular for drummers of all styles. Their versatility and innovative design make them suitable for any genre from jazz to rock to funk. Promark also offers Cool Rods, Lightning Rods, and Thunder Rods, providing a range of sounds for every drummer.

Premium Quality and Craftsmanship

Like all Promark products, Hot Rod drumsticks are made in the USA to the highest quality standards. Promark uses only unendangered wood and environmentally-friendly practices. As part of the D'Addario family of brands, Promark infuses passion and innovation into every product. Hot Rods are available in .550" diameter and 16" length, providing durability and comfort.
