The BS10 is made of American Rock maple. Uniquely shaped wood head produces a deep, resonant, yet focused sound from the bass drum. Need move volume? Try the BS12. It has the same great balance, but the head is slightly larger.

    Comments about Pro-Mark American Rock Maple Marching Bass Drum Sticks Bs12:

    I don't know how I could have been playing a marching bass drum for a couple of years before I first came across this stick. It's such an obviously good idea that it should be a lot more common.

    I've used both sizes of this stick and they both do the job excellently; the bigger version takes a little more horsepower and sounds just a little louder. Either one lights up my 22" drum just fine. They don't dent the heads like a normal drumstick can. And they do a better job on my cymbals and blocks than a felt head can.

    The main difference between the BS10 and a traditional hard felt mallet is in the attack. The wooden stick gives slightly more "pop" or "slap" that can help cut through the sound of a big loud band without having to turn up the overall volume. It also offers a more affirmative rebound that makes quick double and triple hits a little less fatiguing.

    Unlike a felt mallet, I have to stay aware of the condition of my stick tips so they don't develop any chips or splinters that could damage my heads. But also unlike a felt mallet, I can recondition my wooden sticks with a little sanding and a touch of paste wax.

    In most situations, I use a medium sized hard felt mallet in my dominant hand for the main beat and a BS10 in the off hand, for working the other head, closed mini hat, and splash cymbal. But there are many times I use the BS10 in my dominant hand for a more ethnic flavor or faster figures.

    I'd be remiss not to point out that a pair of these sticks costs less than a single half-decent felt mallet. That's not my main basis for choosing a tool, but it sure doesn't hurt.
