Sawtooth are comprised of a high impact flexible polyethylene material. There are several zones that can produce different effects. The serrated edge can be used to simulate a guiro, the designated flat area can be used to create an effective ‘cross stick’ sound. The nylon beads can accentuate the cymbal and drums sounds in several ways. When played in the vertical plane the nylon beads produce a louder deeper sound as compared when played in the horizontal plane, produce a thinner sound. The resiliency and flexible polyethylene allows multi-stroke rebounds (cheater strokes) when played off edge of drum the rim, cymbal bell or hi-hat edge.
