We use the solid wood handle from our B Series stick. Bundles have 12 birch rods inserted into a metal band at the drumstick handle end. The movable ‘O’ ring on the dowels can be positioned to offer different sound and feel options.
Bandits use the same format as the Bundles and Bushwhackers however polypropylene rods are substituted. These offer another sound scape and feel and are very flexible and durable.
Bushwhackers use the same format as the Bundles however bamboo dowels are substituted in place of the birch. These offer a slight different sound and feel and are a little more durable.
These are a straight forward poly rod bundle and attached to a solid wood handle.
14⅝” (372mm) long flexible PolyRod Dowels. Soft, comfortable VinylFlex handles ensure a positive, confident grip. The sliding band allows for fine-tuning the sound and touch of BuzzRods from tightly closed to wide open and almost brush-like.
When the original patent design expired, many companies copied the Hot Rods design. However, why copy if you can enhance its unique design? And that is what we did with Rads; our design incorporates some of the ideas we discovered while building other unique bundled sticks. The result appears the same but you must play them appreciate the difference, more bounce yields greater dynamic range and articulation.
The downside to most bundled rods using birch is their durability. With Shoots, the 19 rods are bamboo dowels formed into the hexagonal shape. Bamboo is heavier and more flexible than birch but extremely durable making them a great choice for heavy hitters that may not need bounce at low volume levels.
At HeadHunters we believe that we have created an essential premium drumstick using world renowned Canadian Rock Maple, a wood that is noted for its beauty, strength, and acoustical qualities. All Headhunters drumstick tips are rounded, allowing for warm and articulate cymbal tones.
