Smooth drumming can really highlight an originally crafted melody. Using a percussion rod over a cymbal can send a sound into the audience that is truly distinctive. Seasoned drummers rely on these versatile sticks to change up their groove and offer their listeners a more diverse experience. Experimentation is at the root of the creation of multi-rods. Drummers looking for a different sound have always found ways to tinker with the classics and truly make them their own. There is only so much you can do with the kit itself. Something as simple as changing up the implement used to attack your kit can really open doors for the musician. Splashsticks are an ideal way to add an acoustic feel to your drumming style. The rubber capped tip allows you greater control over your cymbal and makes adding in a crescendo simple. The Vater bamboo and traditional splashstick brings out a naturally metallic tone that is much more challenging to do with a traditional wooden drum stick. Specialty rods made for heavy metal drummers are a simple way to ensure the hard driving beats aren’t interrupted by a broken stick. The Ahead TipStix Bundle Broom or Innovative Percussion Jamz Heavy Bundle stick is a solid rod that can easily ride out any thunderous crash or tom solo. The thrashing you can give your kit is extensive with sturdy rods such as these. The unique grouping of rods found in some multi-rods give the drummer the option of a soft rattling sound as the wooden dowels click together underneath the casing. While definitely a subtle effect, this unique sound can cut through a jam and provide the listener with a warm listening experience. Your audience may not be able to put their finger on what you just did there, but they’ll remember it. Tucking a multi-rod in behind your kit with you as you play is an ideal option. Want to bring a richer tone to your tom during a power ballad? You’ll be glad you have an extra rod handy to enhance a song with a touch of power. Multi-rods are by far the easiest way to affect your sound for the better with very little investment.
