      Pros

      • Anti-fatigue
      • Easy To Use
      • Good Volume Control
      • Increases Speed
      • Reduces Vibration
      • Whip Rim Shots

      Best Uses

      • Practicing

      Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

      Volume is reduced by sticks absorbing the force when hitting a drum or cymbal. This provides a drummer to play harder, without increasing volume…perfect for smaller venues and rehearsals.
      Because of the bundling of dow-rods, vibration is also absorbed. The plastic wrap provides good gripping when playing, especially when sweating.
      Life expectancy of the sticks is short. The dow-rods splinter and break easily.
      I have tried Lightning rods, cool rods & thunder rods. Same results on all, just softer or louder volumes.

        Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

        I'm impressed that these Lightning Rods hold up as well as they do. I mainly use them for practices when my band is huddled up in a small room, and I don't want to deafen my bandmates. I'd used hot rods (much thinner pieces) in the past, and they disinegrate quickly. Before showing any damage at all, I got in about 15 hours of practice, and I'm sure I only broke a piece of one by hitting a cymbal stand wingnut. They rebound pretty similarly to a stick, so there's not much functional loss.

          Lightning Rods

          By CJ

          from Mass

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          The Promark Lightning Rods are the right size for everything. They are the perfect thickness, width, length, and weight. Yes these do tend to break more than normal sticks, but if your looking for a lighter sound or maybe you need to play quieter at a gig these are what I recomend!

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          I used these after someone from my church gave me some hot rods which broke easy and within a few weeks were gone, but these are awsome because i play pretty hard at times and they are much quieter than your average drum stick. you also can do some fun snare rolls with them because they give a good accustic tone.

          Totally Awesome

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          I play several types of music. I found that no matter what type of music I play I can always find a way and a place to use them. They are soft enough for playing praise and worship music but durrable enough to play rock. They are great I highly recommend them.

          Lighten Up With Lightning Rods!

          By KinnyB933

          from Avon Lake, Ohio

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          I have played in a worship band for the last 10 years and have always struggled to keep the acoustic set from being overpowering. A couple years ago our new worship leader suggested these "rods". I have used all of the Pro-Mark rods and have found the Lightning rods to be the best. They take the edge off just enough so you can still play with power and passion and won't get people in the congregation complaining about the drums! These rods give you enough punch and power so the sound of the drums and cymbals still ring out just enough. A tip to keep them lasting a bit longer.....coat the end of the rods with some Polyurethane. Try them and you'll love em!

          confused...

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          I got these a while ago and broke one of the dowel rods the next day. I put these in my stick bag for a few days, and then I had nothing to do one day and gave them another shot. I played with them for at least and hour and a half, not one more broken dowel rod. I still use them about everyday when I get yelled at for being loud and only a few chips.

          Perfect for low volume settings.

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          This year we did "Footloose" for our school musical and i had to play trap set. I couldn't find a stick anywhere that would keep me from overpowering our less than loud cast. Finally my director suggested these and i borrowed them. They were perfect. I could play normally without being overbearing. Im going to buy a pair of my own for show choir season and next year's musical.

          from San Antonio, Tx

          Comments about Pro-Mark Lightning Rod Drumsticks:

          I've been playing Promarks Lightning Rods for ten years without a problem. They do take a bit to get the rebound down though. I play them to record, live gigs, to practice. I also use them for chinese food, and ward off burglars.I strongly suggest buying them even if you think you wouldn't like them. They perfect when your looking for a lighter than stick effect.BUY THEM... BUY THEM...
