      OVERVIEW

      The signature drumsticks of the driving force behind Genesis and Weather Report.

      Chester Thompson Performer Series Drumsticks from Regal Tip are long enough for you to use your fingers, which are at the heart of control, power, and accuracy. When Chester was starting, someone told him that he could play faster with longer sticks and he believed them. It does work for him. The drumstick tip is larger because Chester found that with more wood coming in contact with the head, he could achieve more volume without using an uncomfortably large and heavy stick.

        Comments about Regal Tip Chester Thompson Performer Series Drumsticks:

        I've used many different sticks over the years. So far, I really am enjoying playing with these sticks. They are pretty light yet they cut through. Regal Tip sticks last a lot longer than other brands. I've gone through other sticks in no time at all yet Regal Tips last me the longest.

            Comments about Regal Tip Chester Thompson Performer Series Drumsticks:

            I have been using these for many years. They are well balanced, the right weight, diameter and length. I have never had a quality issue nor found any the sticks to be "unusable". Between rehearsal and gigs I use about 30 pair per year. If these sticks get discontinued I may have to retire...

            Comments about Regal Tip Chester Thompson Performer Series Drumsticks:

            I have been using these sticks for most of my drumming career, and consider them very unique, and perfect for the feel I try to achieve. When you sift through the brick of sticks and find the ones that aren't warped, you have a pair of sticks that are very powerful. They're longer than most, yet thinner than the sticks that are equal in length; making them have a great swing, without breaking your cymbals, or wearing you out. I get annoyed with the inconsistent batches, but nonetheless, they are like no other, and are great for the guys who want to cut through half stacks, and be heard all the way to the back of the club. Try them out! (Regal Tip, do not stop making these sticks.)

              Comments about Regal Tip Chester Thompson Performer Series Drumsticks:

              I have been using these for over 20 years and they have excellent balance,weight,reach,overall feel.
              I put aside drumming for about 8 years and when returned found a difference in the feel.
              Was there a change in the type of wood used during my absence from drumming?

              Perfect balance, big sound for their size, little weight with alot of rebound perfect for death metal, and even any other style of music. I will never change to a different stick, do yourself a favor and try them out!
