QSticks from QPercussion are now available in the US directly through me, until an official distribution deal has been established.
QSticks are not your average dowel bundles/rods, like the ones we all know, offered by some of the leading drum stick manufacturers.
- QSticks are hand-made in Holland by a professional drummer. Necessity was the mother of this invention!
- QSticks are made out of much more durable wood (different types), many times more durable than the rods you are familiar with
- QSticks feature two thick coats of clear lacquer for added durability
- QSticks have rounded edges at the tips for a fatter sound (yet still quieter than regular sticks) and no damage to drum heads
- QSticks are available in a wide variety of weights, shapes and colors for many different sounds and easy visual identification in your stick bag.
Below is a cool video of the great Alex Acuna performing a drum solo at Drum Channel with a pair of QSticks WHISPER (the lightest model offered). Alex decided to “yell” more than “whisper” with these. As you’ll see, the rods take a beating like this with no problem, while other rods of similar weight currently on the market would have disintegrated in seconds!
