      Create fresh new dimensions of sound.

      Create fresh new dimensions of sound with Cool Rods—a Pro-Mark original drumstick handmade in the USA from select birch dowels. Cool Rod sticks have a lively, natural rebound. Cool Rods were developed for drummers who want a lighter sound than conventional sticks, but more attack than brushes. Great for lower volume and acoustic gigs.

      These "sticks" are great. I play in a jazz combo band with them, and if I'm using normal sticks, I overpower the band so much, even playing soft. These sticks keep me in line. Although by them selves, they are a little to soft, but a little bit of decerative tape helps it out greatly. I highly recommend them. Also, you wouldn't think it, but these things have great features, experiment with them to find great little licks and things to play. The only drawback is that if you play with them too hard, they break easy. So be gentle and they will NOT let you down.

      In the praise & worship group I play in, it's always a challenge to create energy while not creating more volume than the setting can handle. I tried Cool Rods after having already used Promark's Hot Rods with some success. The Cool Rods simply did not hold up for me. The tendency for the dowells to splay out and brake off was much greater with Cool Rods. I've gone back to using brushes on the very soft stuff and continue to use Hot Rods for the moderate volume songs and have started using Lightning Rods for the somewhat louder things. But in fairness to ProMark and because I really like the other Rods, Cool Rods may be exactly what you need if you have a natural light touch.

            Just What The Congregation Ordered

            Comments about Pro-Mark Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

            Playing Christian contemporary music for more than 10 years now has had its challenges - especially when I'm an advocate of acoustic drums and cymbals.Cool rods allow me to play when real playing is needed, yet not over power the rest of the band and especially the congregation. Have sat behind electronic drums and admit they are great for practice, but I still prefer my great acoustic set for the true sound and variation that cannot be duplicated electronically. Great job Pro-Mark

            I use these coolrods on most of the gigs i play (I mic my entire drum kit) so there is really no need for regular sticks on most tunes my band plays. these are perfect.

            great sticks nice rebound and they work well

            Comments about Pro-Mark Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

            i use all of this style of stick. they are really great for the venues we have where i live. they have perfect rebound and are very lively on my set. i also have used the broom sticks with great results. the only downside is the expense and after a while dowels will bust free and fall out. it makes a lighter stick, but still useful for some tunes. the thunder and lightning rods are very stout and do not bust up on the rims as the lighter ones do. all in all, i use these sticks almost exclusivly these days. i love em'.

            very versatile

            Comments about Pro-Mark Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

            Once you drum with them for a half hour or so, you start discovering various sounds you can create with these. Very interesting on the cymbal. They stay louder on toms and hi-hat than on snare drums. They are great for at home play as well as on small stage with acoustic instruments. Be gentle though. Don't hammer them.

            Comments about Pro-Mark Cool Rod Specialty Drumsticks:

            This stick is probably the best quiet sounding stick you can own next to brushes or dreadlocks. They are worth the price, trust me - I have played with them and I loved the way they sounded and the way they played.
