Promark Hot Rods

Promark Hot Rods are the original and arguably the best non-stick drumstick. Created from thin birch dowels with bespoke wrapping, Hot Rods are the perfect balance between stick and brush. Notable endorsees include Neil Peart and Pat Petrillo.

Birch ProMark Hot Rods are a ProMark original, copied by others, but never equaled. Made of premium select birch dowels, these rods provide an excellent consistency and feel.


  • Nineteen medium premium select birch dowels.
  • 16" smooth grip for easy playability.
  • Unique wrap near the neck provides a tight sound with just enough texture and improves durability.
  • All ProMark drumsticks are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the USA at our Texas facility to the most stringent quality controls in the industry.

About ProMark:

The offices and factory remain in Houston, Texas; manufacturing hickory, maple and Japanese Shira Kashi™ Oak (ProMark was the first American drumstick company to successfully market sustainable Japanese Oak) drumsticks in its modern 90,000 square foot facility. ProMark uses only un-endangered wood in the manufacturing of its sticks and mallets. The harvesting of our hardwoods is carefully controlled, with replenishment of the forest as one of our top concerns. Prior to becoming drumsticks, the wood goes through a multitude of selection and pre-finishing processes at our own mill in the mid-south, followed by rigorous inspections throughout the manufacturing process. The Houston manufacturing team works with the state-of-the-art machinery to produce the drumsticks, keyboard and timpani mallets that are designed tested and used by top performers, educators, students and enthusiasts throughout the world. 

Hot Rods (not to be confused with the classic American cars or the incredibly average movie starring Andy Samberg) are an essential tool in any drummers arsenal. Perfect for unplugged sessions so that you don’t overpower the delicate flower that is your singer. They're also handy for all you drummers who can’t control yourselves when the rest of the band is setting up. Put your sticks away, grab your *ahem* Hot Rods and continue to quietly tap away whilst your guitarists argue over the fact that one of them forgot a jack lead (again).

ProMark’s Hot Rods are made from nineteen medium premium select birch dowels with a smooth grip for comfort and playability.
So make sure you pick up a pair of Hot Rods to add to your ever expanding stick bag to ensure that you’re prepared for those situations in which you’ll have to play quieter. They happen folks and they’re not as bad as you’d think. Also, theres a lot of work out there with singer-songwriters and in these uncertain times, the more work you’re readily equipped for, the better off you’ll be.
