The IP-1 is designed for general concert snare drum use. This stick is constructed of heartwood resulting in a denser and slightly heavier stick weight. The IP-1 is designed slightly thicker and longer for increased control and balance. The elongated oval bead creates a darker sound, while the short taper increases the tip weight for better response at lower dynamic levels. The IP-1 is an excellent multipurpose concert snare drum stick.
Designed to the exacting specifications of Christopher Lamb, Principal Percussionist with the New York Philharmonic, this series has been created specifically for the orchestral snare drummer. The CL-1 is constructed of high quality maple and features a long taper for a great feel and quick response. The bullet shaped bead creates a full dark sound at pianissimo to mezzo forte volume levels. The CL-1L offers the same design as the CL-1, but it is constructed of laminated birch to offer increased consistency in weight and pitch. The CL-2L, also constructed of laminated birch, features an extra long taper and elongated bead resulting in a darker more legato sound.
