Designed by the drummer of Foo Fighters.
Taylor's Artist Series Model drumsticks are similar to a 5B but feature a large, round tip for full tones and great projection. With a length of 16-5/8" and a diameter of .600" in natural hickory wood, the Hawkins drumstick is well-balanced and versatile making it excellent for rock music. Taylor's stick also carries his signature as well as his distinctive tattoo Hawk artwork for a truly unique appearance.
Hawkins grew up in Laguna Beach, CA. He came to prominence during a long road stint with multi-Platinum singer Alanis Morissette. Taylor toured with Alanis during 1995 and 1996 in support of her hugely successful record, "Jagged Little Pill," before joining drummer/guitarist Dave Grohl's rocking Foo Fighters in 1997 as the band's live drummer. In 1999, Taylor joined the Foo Fighters for their Grammy Award-winning album "There is Nothing Left to Lose" and their 2006 world tour supporting their platinum double album.
