I'm not sure if it's allowed to post something like this, but I wanted you all to know that HORNETS Drumsticks are now available at MusiciansFriend.com (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/prod...icks?sku=490049
For those of you who haven't yet tried HORNETS Drumsticks, we are a very small company that makes a unique new drumstick unlike anything you've ever seen before. One look at a picture of them and you will understand immediately that this is something very different.
HORNETS combines art with ergonomics and function, and incorporates the following functional benefits into its design:
Contoured handle fits more naturally into the shape of the
hand than does a straight piece of wood.
Raised handle allows the thumb to relax, reducing strain on
the forearm tendon and simultaneously increasing stamina.
Patented use of o-rings reduces vibration and shock to the
wrist, decreasing the risk of the long-term injuries so many
drummers have to deal with (Carpal Tunnel, Tendonitis, etc.)
O-rings act as an excellent grip. When the hand becomes
sweaty, sticks can get away from you, but our o-rings will
catch your hand and prevent the stick from slipping.
Using the butt end of the sticks on cymbals creates a mallet-
like effect perfect for cymbal rolls.
Because of the o-rings, you always know exactly where your
hand is on the stick without ever having to look down.
Again, if posts of this nature are not allowed, I apologize in advance. Please let me know and either I or an administrator will remove it right away.
Thanks for giving the little guy a chance!! www.hornetsdrumsticks.com
