Shaw Sticks are manufactured from the finest grades of selected American hickory. They are matched to within very close tolerances, so not only are the two sticks in each pair matched, they are also the same weight as the pairs you bought last year & the pairs that you will buy next year. The range includes some Classic British models such as the ‘C’, ‘C+’, ‘Super Soul’ and ‘E’, together with more recent stick designs such as 5A and 5B. Shaw endorsees all use a standard model stick from the Shaw range. This is a strong endorsement of the models and quality available to all drummers from entry level to pro.
