Instruments & Gear

Promark by D’addario has released two signature sets of drumsticks by Matthew Strauss.

The Matthew Strauss General Concert Stick features a long, arrow-shaped tip for enhanced surface contact with the drumhead and a full-bodied tone. The 3" taper and persimmon construction give this drumstick a nimble feel with ample rebound. MAP: $27.00

The Matthew Strauss Staccato Concert Stick features a small, injection-molded nylon disc tip that creates a bright tone and rhythmic clarity from the drum. Both the short front and rear tapers give a forward-balanced feel that propels the momentum of the stick. MAP: $29.99
