Pro-Mark started a trend when they introduced the original Rods. Over the years, other companies have tried unsuccessfully to duplicate their unique sound and feel. Voted one of the top 15 percussion products of the last 25 years, the Rods family produces a lower volume than sticks, but more attack then brushes...perfect for a variety of applications. When regular sticks are too loud, and brushes are too soft, Rods are just right. Handmade in the USA of select birch dowels. (US Patent # 4,535,671)
ProMark Lightning Rods offer more attack, increased projection, and brighter cymbal sound through larger-diameter dowels. Made of premium select birch dowels, these rods provide an excellent consistency and feel. With a sound somewhere between a wire brush and a hickory drumstick, rods are the perfect sound source for the "unplugged" gig.
