A precise, pitch and weight-tested symphonic snare drum stick.
Not every Malletech stick designer has a PhD from a university, but they all have a PhD-level experience in symphonic and chamber music. All the models of this series are manufactured with a new computer-based manufacturing process that allows Malletech to control dimensions and contours down to 1/1000 of an inch for an unprecedented level of detail, control and consistency. Then a college-trained percussionist weighs, pitch, and "character" matches each pair - something a computer can't do.
Tony Cirone is a PAS "Hall of Famer" Percussionist with the San Francisco Symphony for many decades. Former head of the Indiana University School of Music percussion department. Author of Portraits in Rhythm, one of the snare drum pedagogical standards. These sticks feature an acorn tip and a slow taper.
You will see, feel and hear the difference. If you are really serious about snare drum, you will reach for Malletech PhD Series sticks every time you practice or perform.
