Matt Garstka is regarded as one of the key progressive drummers of his generation. This Berklee educated drummer has been gigging since age twelve. He can effortlessly move between genres and across time signatures, and has the ability to make even the most complicated groove feel comfortable. His highly technical style has been the driving force of instrumental progressive metal band, Animals as Leaders since 2007.

Matt set out to design a stick that could be agile without losing its structural integrity. This stick definitely has beef, but a blended tip and long taper provide awesome finesse and speed.
