      Harder than hickory!

      Pro-Mark Japanese white oak drumsticks are balanced and carefully crafted using hand-selected white oak. Grown in the mountainous regions of Japan, this particular species of oak is a harder wood than hickory and will take more wear, tear, and punishment. It resists chipping and wearing soft. Made with Pro-Mark's exclusive Millennium II manufacturing process, each stick is hand-finished and hand-inspected. The result is a strength and durability no other stick can match.

      Features
      • Harder than hickory
      • Resists chipping
      • Won't wear soft
      • Hand-finished

      Harder than hickory! Order today.

        Lots of great things to say here. Besides being very well balanced, consistent, and great in the hands, they are also the most durable and natural feeling sticks on the market.

        When I go to the store I find myself comparing sticks from different brands to find the pair(s) I like. Not so much with Pro Mark as they are very consistent from pair to pair. A set can last me up to 6 months or more.

        The essence of oak is very dense. Your rides will clang with authority and your crashes will ring for days. They are loud sticks. However you can still get delicate response for snare rolls and soft passages. It's how you use your hands.

        I only have one reservation : and I must throw a CAUTION flag out - be very careful with practicing often with these sticks. After some medical attention, partly due to the dense nature of these sticks, I have developed SEVERE Carpal and Ulnar tunnel in both hands/wrists. It is due to the shock being more severe with such a dense wood. Had I been using hickory (a much lighter wood), the shock would not have been as extreme. Now I must take Ibuprofen before and after shows, and ice my arms so they do not flare up. I wear wrist braces at night. This is not purely the sticks' fault. I would practice for 3 hours or more without a break and without proper warm-ups. I sliced up my ligaments pretty bad and caused some real agitation on my nerves.

        If you plan to play a lot with these, save them for the gig. Use hickory or budget-friendly 2nds to practice with. As long as they roll on a table, they'll be fine.

        I now use Zildjian Anti-vibes for my CTS. It's all I can use at this point, with the occasional light hickory 5A with electrical tape wrapped around it (for shock absorption).

        If I could do it all over again I'd practice with hickory but I'd use Shira Kashi all day long if my arms weren't in such bad shape. They are great sticks but unfortunately for me the oak is too dense for my arms to handle. I do use proper stick technique. They will tear you up!

        Fantastic sticks - but save them for the gig.

        I have been drumming for 10 years, I've used tons of Sticks. My favorite brand is ProMark, hands down. I've used 727 and 747,rock and super rock. And I love the feeling they have in my hand. The type of music I play is Indie Folk, and you wouldnt think that I need sticks all the time. But I have to buy 2 pairs of sticks each week. And these are the only sticks I buy. So if you play hard like me get a bigger size, I havent tried 5A or 5B yet, but thats what Im going to swing for next time.

        Again, great weight, sound great, can take a beating, but depending on your play get the size you need.

        Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

        I have been using Promark 808's for 30+ years all the way back to when they were "Billy Cobham Golden Oak", then they had a "Paul Wirtico" endorsement on them for a few years. There was a period where they were making them with Hickory that they weren't as good. The current Japanese White Oak are as good as the originals 30 years ago. I play the wood tips as the plastic tips have been known to break or come off plus I don't like the plastic tip sound on my cymbals. I almost never break one of these sticks due to the hardness of the wood. Usually they'll whittle down gradually where you hit the hi-hat and cymbals and finally split near the whittled down ends. They last longer than any stick I've used and they're the perfect weight and size. Get some!

        I bought these just to try, (just an at home player) no more sticks in bulk for me, the 3 pr. i bought will probably last longer than the 12 pr. of the others. the weight & balance are great! And i realized, i'm better than i thought! It does make a difference.

          Great sticks. Well balanced, straight. I can feel the quality difference between these sticks and Stagg and other bulk cheap practice sticks.

            These Shira Kashi Oak sticks outlast Hickory sticks 10 to 1. The dense wood of Oak resists breakage as well as splintering caused by Power Rim shots and resists cymbal edge cuts. The heavier Oak sticks will give you more volume on demand than Hickory or Maple sticks. I play 11 gigs a month all year long and 12 pair of Shira Kisha Oak sticks will last me an entire year and most of the 12 sticks will still be usable, if lightly sanded with fine grit sandpaper to remove the small cymbal edge cuts that destroy Hickory or Maple sticks.
            These Oak sticks are the best value for your hard earned money.

              I've used all kind of sticks over the last 13 years. Mainly went with Vic-Firth and Zildjian for most of that time. I bought these because they were different and had really good reviews. I was impressed. I used the same pair of sticks for 4 months straight, practice and gigs. I play a wide range of music from 1950's rock and blues, to country, to hard rock and heavy metal. Use these sticks for it all. LOVE THEM AND WILL BUY AGAIN.

                Great stick and they take more of a beating than any other wood stick I've found. The 808's are a good weight, in between a 5a and 5b. Well done Pro Mark!

                I bought the 5an pair just to try the sticks out. I'm a Vic Firth guy to be honest. I heard a lot of hype over Japanese Oak so I figured I would be the judge of that. When I picked up the sticks they felt amazing! Not too much or too little finish. These were also very responsive and durable when playing. One point of criticism I have to make is that when I repeatedly play the hi-hat, I feel the shock in my hands sometimes. This then leads to some aching depending on the duration of your song or set. If you use a bigger size than a 5an, I don't think you would feel the shock like I did. Overall, a great built pair of sticks.

                  I play with these almost every day for about 6 hours on Saturday and about 5 hours on Sunday. These are the only sticks I have played with for the last 2 years and they hold up so well. I like them because they fit my hands great and feel really nice. I also like the weight and density of them. The American Hickory was to light and didn't hold up as well. I highly recommend these sticks.

                    I've been playing the Shira Kashi Oak sticks for the last 4 years or so and I love em! They're perfect for the heavier playing styles becaus they're so dang durable. I buy a few pairs and they last me quite a long time.
