Lengthy stick with a 5B style grip and acorn tip. Wood tip only. The unfinished sticks leave a comfortable sanded grip that is perfect to prevent drumsticks from slipping from sweaty hands during a performance.
"I'm a big fan of the 1A's because of their length in particular. I naturally choke up a bit on sticks, so the extra length is perfect. Because they aren't too thick, you can easily play to both dynamic extremes." - Ilan Rubin [Nine Inch Nails]
"I’m a big fan of the 1A, whether lacquered or not. I like to play with a spread-out setup, and the extra reach of the 1A allowed me to keep from overextending my arms. It also delivered a stronger and more powerful sound from drums and cymbals than what I get from a typical 5A, while retaining a nimble response." - Modern Drummer Magazine
