This stick is quite light, with a hard, precise sound. Measuring 38mm across, a double layer of soft felt covers a wooden wheel. With a hand-finished bamboo handle for the right springiness. Ideal for Baroque and early Classical music, and when precision is needed over a wide range of dynamics.

The handle diameter of the sticks range from 8mm up 11mm. The thickness is broadly based on the head size, but there is no set diameter which is alway used for each model. This way there is enough variation for a timpanist to choose the model he wants and then find the handle size that suits best.
