OVERVIEW

Impeccable sticks from the name drummers trust.

Made from only the finest American Hickory, with the famous Regal Tip finish, feel, and balance. Joe Calato developed the original nylon tip drum stick over 40 years ago. Regal Tip was the first company to install their own dry kiln so that they could control the manufacturing process from the kiln drying of the wood, to the matching and pairing of sticks.

Calato was also the first to upgrade the quality of the sticks on the market by grading them for straightness of grain, weight, color, and warp, and then match each pair.

This is a review of the Regal Tip wood tip drumsticks in 2B and 5B sizes. These sticks have been my "go to" sticks for a good 10 to 15 years. I've tried most of the major brands in 2B and 5B sizes and these sticks feel and work the best for me. The sticks have a long taper which give them a lot of rebound. The long taper makes the sticks feel fairly light which I really appreciate on a full 4-hour bar gig. It seems like other brands like my hometown favorites of Promark use shorter tapers which make sticks feel heavier. Keep these differences in mind when buying these sticks in 5B and 2B sizes. I can't vouch for the other sizes but I imagine they are similar. I also like the lacquer finish. To the guy that said these sticks are slippery, I'd suggest a careful study of your grip before dismissing the sticks. I've never found these sticks to be "slippery" in the least. My only beef with these sticks at the time of this writing is price and I'm sure it is a supply and demand issue.

I BOUGHT THESE REGAL STICKS TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN WHAT I AM USED TO USING. I USE NOVA,GOOD WOOD,SOUND PERCUSSION AND PULSE STICKS. I DON'T MIND PAYING AND PLAYING WITH CHEAP STICKS. I PLANNED ON USING THESE FOR PRACTICES AND CONCERTS. I STARTED BUYING THE MORE TRADITIONAL BRANDS OF STICKS LIKE REGAL, PROMARK, ETC.
I LIKE THE HEAVY WEIGHT ON THE CHEAPER 5B NYLON STICKS COMPARED TO THE REGAL STICKS. THESE STICKS HAVE A GOOD GRIP ON THEM FOR ME, AND THEY ARE EASY TO USE, BUT I DON'T HAVE VERY GOOD CONTROL USING THESE STICKS BECAUSE THEY ARE TO LIGHT FOR ME. THEY ARE A GOOD QUALITY STICK IF YOU LIKE THE 5B NYLON TO BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE. I AM USED TO USING HEAVIER STICKS. THIS WAY I HAVE BETTER CONTROL. THE PROMARK STICKS HAVE NICE WEIGHT TO THEM.
I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT THESE STICKS ARE NOT HEAVIER FOR BEING A 5B NYLON STICK.
I NEVER KNEW THAT DIFFERENT BRANDS OF THE 5B NYLON WOULD BE DIFFERENT IN WEIGHT.

    I've tried almost every 5A and related stick from all the manufacturers and Regal Tips feel the best with my traditional grip: sticky enough to use a loose grip and balanced for my style.

      Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

      I'm a semi-pro drummer who is retired from my "day job" and I play in small venues with low volume. These sticks are great for all the styles I play, standards, jazz, pop, light rock and classic soul. My only comment on these sticks (not a problem)is that they are a bit large for my venues -- not in size, but in volume. No matter how light I play, these sticks really broadcast! They do everything a jazz style, hickory stick should do as far as clarity and rebound are concerned. However, my small venues require the Jazz-E (wood-sound nylon tip) and the wood tip Jazz. I find that I am even using the Jeff Hamilton Signature (smaller and shorter) sticks in a lot of my songs. This is my limitation -- not the sticks. If you want a perfect wood tip rock-jazz hybrid at normal to high volumes, the 8A is your stick.

        regal tip sticks

        Ask me a question

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        i've tried every stick ever made. i've tried every size ever made. my personal favorite is the regal tip 5b nylon tip. loud or soft, fast or slow, it is my preference. the finish is perfect. when the hands get sweaty, grip actually increases, allowing a relaxed, comfortable grip, even when playing at skull splitting volumes. other sticks feel buzzy and uncomfortable. poorly balanced. not these. it's like hitting a line drive right at the center of percussion in baseball- it makes a loud bang, but you don't feel a thing. they are durable, as well. i do a ridiculous amount of rim shots, and these sticks hold up very well.
        well, whaddaya know, it's a stick!
        they've had issues with straightness and weight matching in the past, but they've gotten much better. in the early days of drumming (when i was a kid), i'd go down to my local drum shop and pull 50 or so sticks out of the bin, and roll them. that would narrow the field down to about 20 sticks, then i would tap them and select the highest pitched among them. that would yield me 1 or 2 pair. they are almost always straight and well matched now.
        price doesn't matter (within reason, of course) when the sticks are this good.

        regal tip jazz

        By jeffrey cort

        from u.s. as well as all over

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        the only product there is. (there are no other drum sticks) i dont know what you call what the other manufactures produce, door stoppers?
        regal tip jazz are the drum stick, that all aspire to, all other sticks pale in comparison. i have spent over 40 years as a professional musician and have compared all other brands of drum sticks with not on single pair paralel to joe calato's regal tip jazz. from wood selection with matched pairing and advance controlled drying, the balance, quality and consistency of this product has remained light years ahead of the competition. i not only recommend this product, i will only use joe calato regal tip jazz, for the remainder of my lifetime.
        if your trying to save money, this not the area to do so.

        jazz model is amazing

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        i have traditionally played with pro mark oak and hickory 5A's and have always been fond of the pro mark feel, but i recently picked up a pair of regal hickory jazz wood tips and i'll likely never go back. i used to thumb my nose at regal, and the sticks felt a bit slippery at first, but i got accustomed to it and began to feel the difference in rebound, control, and overall ease of play these sticks offer. they are incredible! the tips on the jazz model provide a clear, articulate sound and yet are very dynamically versatile. the taper also lets the stick rebound nicely without getting out of control and ruining tone quality on 16th's and such. i can't get over the ease of play of these sticks. great for jazz of course, but they are well-rounded enough to suit almost any style. may be especially useful in chop-intensive stuff like fusion or jam rock, a la the amazing rebound of the sticks.

        I just got 2 pairs of 5A's not too long ago. AMAZING! They are for sure the best drumsticks I have ever played. I used to use VIc Firths, but they broke really easily and I didn't like them. These are so much better. If you're looking for some new drumsticks, BUY THESE NOW!!

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        I was a die hard Vic Firth player all throughout my college career in music and recording technology. Shortly after college I starting touring, experimenting w/ other brands and came across Regal Tip. I have now been an exclusive Regal Tip player for almost 20 years and feel this stick is a perfect match for the schooled, finesse drummer. I prefer 5A Nylon and miss the old green logo w/ green nylon tip and little stick man drummer on each pair.

          I recently purchased two pair of the Regal Tip By calato 5B. When they arrived I noted one pair was significantly lighter than the other. I don't know about other drummers needs but I need a stick that is consistent in its weight and feel. It has every effect on how the drums sound and the volume that you need to get from the drum. I have been playing with Regal Tip sticks for 20 or more years and have noticed over the past 5 years this weight issue has become more consistent. At this point I am going to start looking at other brands.

          I BOUGHT THESE REGAL STICKS TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN WHAT I AM USED TO USING. I USE NOVA,GOOD WOOD,SOUND PERCUSSION AND PULSE STICKS. I DON'T MIND PAYING AND PLAYING WITH CHEAP STICKS. I PLANNED ON USING THESE FOR PRACTICES AND CONCERTS. I STARTED BUYING THE MORE TRADITIONAL BRANDS OF STICKS LIKE REGAL, PROMARK, ETC.
          I LIKE THE HEAVY WEIGHT ON THE CHEAPER 5B NYLON STICKS COMPARED TO THE REGAL STICKS. THESE STICKS HAVE A GOOD GRIP ON THEM FOR ME, AND THEY ARE EASY TO USE, BUT I DON'T HAVE VERY GOOD CONTROL USING THESE STICKS BECAUSE THEY ARE TO LIGHT FOR ME. THEY ARE A GOOD QUALITY STICK IF YOU LIKE THE 5B NYLON TO BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE. I AM USED TO USING HEAVIER STICKS. THIS WAY I HAVE BETTER CONTROL. THE PROMARK STICKS HAVE NICE WEIGHT TO THEM.
          I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT THESE STICKS ARE NOT HEAVIER FOR BEING A 5B NYLON STICK.
          I NEVER KNEW THAT DIFFERENT BRANDS OF THE 5B NYLON WOULD BE DIFFERENT IN WEIGHT.

                These are my favorite sticks. They were recommended to me by my drum instructor. I love the finish because it keeps the sticks from slipping yet it's not to tacky or sticky.

                Unfortunately, 3 out of the 4 sticks I ordered were warped. This possibility is why I was hesitant to order drum sticks online. I won't make that mistake again

                  Great sticks when a light touch is needed. I usually use three models to cover most gigs. Combo, Jazz, and Rock. The Jazz are medium for me. I've used Regal Tips all my career.

                    Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

                    I was recently in the market to find a new stick size after playing a Regal Tip 2B for many, many years. I wanted something slightly lighter, but still gave me the sound I was looking for on the drums and cymbals. I tried a variety of sizes from different companies that I thought would be close to what I was looking for....Vic Firth 5B, Rod Morgenstein signature and HD9, Vater 55BB and Regal Tip Metal X, 5BX, 5B and 7B. Sticks are a very personal thing and need to feel and sound just right for each individual player. The Vic Firth sticks were nice and seemed to have the best quality look, but the Rod Morgenstein signatures and HD-9's were just a tad too heavy, really close to the 2B's I was already using. The Vic Firth 5B's were decent, just not quite there on the sound on my snare drum (probably the tip). The Regal Tip Metal X and 7B's felt weird and I felt a lot of the impact and shock from the stroke with those. The 5BX was cool, but the acorn tip on the end of the 5BX didn't give me quite the sound I wanted from the snare and cymbals like the oval tip of the 5B did. The 5B stick sound was a little fuller and present. The Vater 55BB is decent, but all in all, the Regal Tip 5B wood tip performed the best for me personally. I already played Regal Tip sticks, so I was familiar with them and how they felt. I like the finish on them, it does help to prevent slipping when your hands get sweaty, another plus when considering the alternative brands. Although I would recommend them to drummers looking for a nice 5B weight stick, I would suggest experimenting with different brands before deciding for sure. What I like, you may not and vice versa. Good luck with your choice!!

                            Im 42, been playing since I was 15. I play solid, learned early on to incorporate the rims into drum rolls as well as any basic rhythms; so my snare rim takes a lot of abuse; and obviously Im pretty tough on sticks. These REGAL-TIP JAZZ (nylon tips) are by far the best sticks Ive ever played with- they feel terrific, perfect length (5A), but not quite as fat as other 5As; the heavy lacquer finish on these sticks seems to add alot of extra strength. Every solid drummer needs a few pairs of these- they last forever, are perfectly balanced and really do seem to improve the overall sound of your drums. The only downside is they are very expensive.
