The new Dave Grohl Artist Series Drumstick model also features large dimensions, a length of 16 3/4 and diameter of 0.600 for extra power and reach as well as an acorn-shaped tip for sound clarity. Crafted from 100% U.S. Select Hickory, the preferred wood for drum set sticks, its overall design is especially well suited for Rock applications where power, rebound, and durability are critical. According to John Sorenson, Zildjian s Director of Sales Planning and Drumsticks, Dave blends his own powerful technique with the styles of the influential drummers of the past to push the limits of music. He truly embodies what it means to be a great drummer.
