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.
