Meinl will be expanding their presence when The UK Drum Show returns in 2023. In addition to their historic booth that guests enjoyed this year, Meinl have confirmed a second booth focusing on their extensive stick and brush range.
Meinl Stick & Brush has been an integral part of Meinl’s product range since 2018 and consists of a clear line-up of drum sticks focusing on the most important stick models and accessories.
Today, a wide variety of models, sizes and types exist and finding the right fit can be overwhelming. Meinl’s solution was to create a focused line of high-quality drum sticks with clear differences in the framework of the sizes most commonly used.
Many factors go into the reason this happens, and the R&D team at Meinl invested many hours in testing these differences. They decided to craft their sticks from a cymbal player’s perspective so that every stick sounds great on cymbals first.
Have you ever found your favorite stick model to be too light or too heavy when buying a new pair? The Meinl solution was to add a new step in to the mix on how sticks are manufactured: weigh and sort the raw wooden dowels into designated models first.
Before being turned into sticks, the American Hickory and North American Hard Maple comes in the form of square dowels. Each dowel is shaped into a stick with a precise profile by computer controlled cutting blades. By sorting the raw dowels first, only lightweight hickory becomes Big Apple sticks (which are great for fast ride patterns) and likewise, dowels with the most weight will become the Heavy series (which features increased diameters and thick tapered shoulders for endurance and heavy hitting).
The final result is that your favorite pair feels the way you expect, every time.
In addition to Drum Sticks, the Meinl Stick & Brush line-up also includes various and unique multi-rods, brushes and mallets all made to the same, super high standard to fulfil all wishes for dynamics and articulation for all percussionists and drummers all around the globe.
Meinl Stick & Brush is quickly becoming the trusted stick of choice by drummers all over the world, recently working closely with artists such as Luke Holland and Calvin Rodgers who now have their own signature drum stick models available.
