      Broomsticks produce a sound that's in between brushes and Hot Rods.

      Pro-Mark Broomsticks are created using actual broomcorn. You'll get more volume than with cymbal brushes, but less attack than rods. The rubber bands are adjustable for different sounds.


      Another versatile sound at your command. Order your Broomsticks today.

              Comments about Pro-Mark Broomsticks:

              These feel great in your hands & produce pleasant tones on cymbals and drums-including snares- much more pleasing than the various rod bundles on the market. Have just the right combination of supple texture and heft. Good for quiet rehearsals, and for upbeat ballads in performance (you'll need mics). The big downside: straw is frail. Unless you play pretty softly, they just won't hold up.

                Comments about Pro-Mark Broomsticks:

                If you want to ride with a stick and get a fat backbeat on the snare these will do. They are useless on cymbals and non-coated drum heads. I've tried to drive the hi hats with these and it does not work. Interesting sound if you use a circular motion on a coated head. I love the heavier ProMark Rods, but the Broomsticks are very limited in their usefulness. BTW, the diameter is enormous; don't plan on doing anything uptempo with these.

                Riding the Broomsticks

                By Mike Nadeau

                from Kasilof, Alaska

                Comments about Pro-Mark Broomsticks:

                I really like these. They give a nice soft brush on snares and a unique "thwack" on the toms. I would recommend them for someone looking to broaden their studios choices of gear.
                Corn straw tends to go away after a while.
                They sound great, but they are, after all, essentially corn straw, so they tend to ware out quickly

                Comments about Pro-Mark Broomsticks:

                These are not brushes. They are broomcorn, which is not responsive at all on cymbals. Forget about it. If the rubberish rings come off, like one of mine did, you won't have much luck getting it back on. If i had to go back, I'd get another pair of my Jeff Hamilton I gave away. These might be good for a sort of country/western snare+bass set up...

                These broomsticks are excellent to use when drumming with accoustic guitars and stand up bass players.

                I've been using broomsticks with a touring praise & worship band for over a year, and I absolutely love the sound they make. Much more durable than rods. They cover all the dynamic ranges I need.
