Promark Cool Rods are designed for a more delicate sound than the standard Hot Rods. 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. Nineteen small premium select birch dowels. Diameter: 0.425", Length: 16". Smooth grip for easy play ability. Unique wrap near the neck provides a tight sound with just enough texture and improves durability. All Promark drumsticks are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA at our Texas facility to the most stringent quality controls in the industry.
