OVERVIEW

Three perfectly matched sticks.

The ball tips on these 3 drumsticks provide added articulation to your sound.

For the first time ever, drummers now get a set of 3 sticks instead of two. This means there's an extra pro-quality, perfectly matched drumstick always there. No matter what type of music, 3 drumsticks provide the balance, feel, and performance to get the job done in the studio or on stage. Best of all, each stick is rigorously tested in four ways:

Laser-tested for straightness
Weight-matched
Pitch-matched
Balance-matched

After testing, each DW stick is printed with its unique characteristics, right on the stick. This is proof positive that every stick has been properly matched as a set. So why go to such great lengths to ensure quality? Because when you make serious, professional-quality sticks, you want the world to know it. DW measures quality one drumstick at a time in their factory.

It's the only way DW can ensure that every set of 3 drumsticks is the best it can be. It all starts with the wood. Each stick is born from only the finest hand-selected U.S. hickory, and only wood that meets DW's strict moisture content standards makes the cut. From there, wood dowels are lathed to exacting specifications and undergo a three-step sanding process. Once sanded smooth, they are primed and finished with DW's proprietary satin-lacquer process. The result is a natural feel that most drummers prefer.

3 Drumsticks is born from the desire to create more advanced, drummer-friendly products. It's simply part of the Drum Workshop philosophy; a fresh idea can oftentimes reshape the way we look at something as familiar as a drumstick.

So when DW decided to make sticks, it took DW's 35 years of experience as one of the world's leading drum, pedal, and hardware manufacturers and applied it to creating a revolutionary new concept in the marketplace. The result is 3 drumsticks.

Interestingly enough, the initial inspiration for offering sticks as sets rather than traditional pairs was secondary. DW's primary focus was on making the highest-quality all-hickory drumstick available today, and to do so meant DW had to invest resources in some very advanced and proprietary quality-control equipment. DW's years of working with wood told the company that it would have to match sticks by weight and also check them for straightness, but as DW delved deeper, it decided to pitch-match them for consistency, and also do something no other manufacturer had done before--balance-match them. In this way, DW could determine whether the stick would be heavier in the front or back. After all, holding a drumstick and playing drums is all about balance. When it was all said and done, DW had developed a rather precise four-step matching process. After that, DW decided to take it one step further and actually print the results of that process on each stick. This was also rather unconventional, but proof positive that DW had done its job.

Once DW had decided to go the extra mile to match each set, the company wondered what would happen with the harder-hitting players that often break sticks. Sure, DW's sticks are made from the highest-grade U.S. hickory, but DW knew that some drummers can really dish out the abuse. So, DW decided to throw in a spare. After all, you wouldn't leave the house without a spare tire on your car, would you?

DW's final challenge was to decide on the feel of the stick. Should the company go with a high-gloss lacquer or a completely raw, unfinished stick? Knowing drummers are serious about feel and that their musical creativity is translated from stick to drum-set, DW developed a special priming and lacquering process that completely seals the stick while still achieving an extremely natural feel.

The best part is that DW does it all in its factory in Ensenada, Mexico. DW is in control of design, manufacturing, and quality every step of the way. Add to that exceptional value and a groundbreaking new technology and you have 3 drumsticks. Once you play a set of 3 drumsticks, DW believes you'll agree, three is the new pair.

Like a lot of us, Im on a budget. I thought Id try these and theyre great. I like how light they are compared to the Vic Firths 2B standards. I use 2B ball tip and they last for 2 months or so. Theyre pretty quick for 2B's too.
