Wincent Drumsticks is a Swedish company that creates drumsticks and other tools for drummers all over the world. They are known for their durability and have some of the greatest drummers on the planet on their roster like Tomas Haake (Meshuggah), Mikkey Dee (ex Motörhead, Scorpions), El Estepario Siberiano (online drummer) Aron Mellergård (Dirty Loops), Per Lindvall (ABBA), Michael Miley (Rival Sons) and Tobines (online drummer).
In 1992 Dan Nylén started to make rods in his parents’ garage. After the worldwide success with the Wincent rods, and then later on brushes, Dan started to think about making drumsticks. After several years of research, Dan started to design his own drumstick machines.
Wincent has developed a one-of-a-kind way to turn their Kentucky born wood into drumsticks. First of all, all hickory is hand selected and dried carefully for maximized durability. Secondly, as the only drumstick company in the world, Wincent grinds the whole drumstick with one big grinding stone instead of using multiple grinding stones or wood lathes. This makes the drumsticks extremely balanced, straight and gives them a satin smooth surface.
The drumsticks are then sealed with a secret, Eco-friendly, water based, wax formula. The Unique Wax Protection gives both a great grip and makes the sticks more durable since the wax goes into the wood, preventing it from cracking up easily.
Before the sticks leaves the factory, they are printed with the Wincent logo, model name and Butt End Print, for an easy way to find your favorite sticks in store or in your drumstick bag, then the pairs are matched by weight.
The UK Drum Show look forward to welcoming Wincent to The UK Drum Show at the ACC Liverpool for the first time for 2023. Please be sure to stop by and say hello.
