We take a solid wood handle from our B Grooves stick, add 12 birch rods and lock them in place with an aluminum band. Movable O-rings on the dowels can be positioned to offer different sound options. Loosen the rod cluster for a lighter sound, or tighten them for more articulation. The O-rings can also be used to modify the feel and rebound.
Our Bandits use the same formula as the Bundles, substituting polypropylene rods for a softer sound. With slightly less focus, Bandits offer another sound-scape and feel, and are both flexible and durable.
Bushwhackers use the same format as the Bundles and feature bamboo rods rather than harder birch dowels. These have a fatter sound and slightly different feel and are more durable than birch bundles.
These are straight forward polyrod bundles attached to a Classics 5A solid maple handle, all held together with an aluminum yoke. With a sound and response similar to the Bandit, it has a more traditional feel in the hand.
Flexible PolyRod filaments are bound together to create a 14⅝” (372mm) stick. Soft, comfortable VinylFlex handles ensure a positive, confident grip. The sliding band allows for fine-tuning the sound from tightly closed to wide open and almost brush-like.
Many companies copy the original “Hot Rods” design. But why copy if you can improve? Headhunters Rads incorporate some of the things we learned while building our other unique bundled sticks. The result may look the same as its competitors, but play them and you’ll appreciate the difference: more bounce, better articulation and greater dynamic range.
While birch rod bundles are great for most applications, some drummers simply need more durability. With Shoots, 19 bamboo dowels are formed into the hexagonal shape that continues into the grip area. We finish them off with our hard wearing X-Grip. Bamboo is heavier and more flexible than birch and is extremely durable, making Shoots a great choice for heavy hitters who may not want a lot of bounce at lower 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.
