ProMark Drumsticks recently partnered with Mike McIntosh, The Cavaliers Percussion Director and Music Coordinator, to design his new signature stick, now available for purchase.

The Mike McIntosh Signature Drumstick features a large round tip that produces a full-bodied tone, while the additional length and extended taper provide a quick rebound for ease of playability and control. Additionally, Mike desired to create the most responsive snare stick that marching percussion has ever seen.

“When I made the switch to ProMark, it was not a decision I took lightly” McIntosh said. “Working with the D’Addario team to create what we think, is ‘next and new’ has been exciting to say the least. From the unique color to the way it rockets off the drum, I’m over the moon to introduce this stick to the world.”

In addition to designing, coordinating, consulting, and composing for many marching bands all over the United States, McIntosh is the Percussion Coordinator for the Music for All Summer Symposium as well as the Percussion Caption Supervisor, Music Coordinator and one of two Percussion Designers for The Cavaliers drum and bugle corps. From 1997-2011, Mr. McIntosh was a percussion specialist at Carmel high school in Carmel, Indiana, and an integral part of programs named the 2001 and 2017 AAA National Champion and 2005, 2012, 2016, and 2017 BOA Grand National Champions.

Mr. McIntosh is an active clinician and adjudicator, giving clinics throughout the US, Europe, and Asia, having performed clinics in Japan and Beijing, China. Michael is a current adjudicator for WGI and Bands of America.

This Maribel White painted hickory stick with a large round wood tip measures .710″ / 18.03mm in diameter and 17″ / 431.8mm in length.
