      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.

        I have been using Regal Tip 5B (Plastic Tips) for a majority of my 52 years as a professional drummer, which has included , recording ,TV, and live appearances, from small clubs to "Madison Square Garden," and I can honestly say "I can always relay on my Regal Tip 5Bs for comfort and getting through a demanding work load. The sticks always feel comfortable regardless of the grip I am using, traditional or matched. The lacquer finish feels so good in your hands especially if your hands and fingers might get a little wet under some stage lights or playing out on a cold damp night. I love the balance of every pair of sticks and how durable the sticks are when rim shots are called for, they hold up extremely well and I never worry if the plastic tip will still l be on the end of my stick after playing. My Regal Tips by Calato are an exceptional drum stick. Give them a shot, you can't go wrong, they are great.

        These sticks are pretty bad. Everything that drew me to them ended up working against me. The claim that the more your hands warm up the better the grip gets didn't really apply to me. The lacquer on them seemed to make these sticks really slippery and only made them fly out of my hand. These sticks are said to be made of hickory but they feel really light. I'm used to slightly more weighted sticks (pro-mark, vic firth) and these sticks felt like playing with air. I have owned 3 pairs of the 5B nylon and each pair was a disappointment. I STRONGLY recommend going with a brand like pro-mark or vic firth or vater. These sticks really didn't cut it for me.

          Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

          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.

            I was looking for sticks to replace my Regal Tip 5A's which have caused me problems with my left hand trad grip. Something close to the 5A diameter, same length and taper. "Rock" sticks are great! They're now my go-to stick.

                        These Regal 5A hickory sticks are durable and well balanced. I've used them for 20 years.
                        I've tried out other brands of sticks, I always come back to using these!

                            The sticks' balance is just right for my technique.
                            Tried all the other famous makers but they just don't feel as good as Regal Tips. The coating makes for an easy to grip(playing traditional grip this is more important to me.)

                                The finish on these sticks is like no other. You can move it around in your hand while you play, but they don't slide around or stick to your hands. The weight is just right for varied types of playing.
