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.

This is a review of the Regal Tip wood tip drumsticks in 2B and 5B sizes. These sticks have been my "go to" sticks for a good 10 to 15 years. I've tried most of the major brands in 2B and 5B sizes and these sticks feel and work the best for me. The sticks have a long taper which give them a lot of rebound. The long taper makes the sticks feel fairly light which I really appreciate on a full 4-hour bar gig. It seems like other brands like my hometown favorites of Promark use shorter tapers which make sticks feel heavier. Keep these differences in mind when buying these sticks in 5B and 2B sizes. I can't vouch for the other sizes but I imagine they are similar. I also like the lacquer finish. To the guy that said these sticks are slippery, I'd suggest a careful study of your grip before dismissing the sticks. I've never found these sticks to be "slippery" in the least. My only beef with these sticks at the time of this writing is price and I'm sure it is a supply and demand issue.

I BOUGHT THESE REGAL STICKS TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN WHAT I AM USED TO USING. I USE NOVA,GOOD WOOD,SOUND PERCUSSION AND PULSE STICKS. I DON'T MIND PAYING AND PLAYING WITH CHEAP STICKS. I PLANNED ON USING THESE FOR PRACTICES AND CONCERTS. I STARTED BUYING THE MORE TRADITIONAL BRANDS OF STICKS LIKE REGAL, PROMARK, ETC.
I LIKE THE HEAVY WEIGHT ON THE CHEAPER 5B NYLON STICKS COMPARED TO THE REGAL STICKS. THESE STICKS HAVE A GOOD GRIP ON THEM FOR ME, AND THEY ARE EASY TO USE, BUT I DON'T HAVE VERY GOOD CONTROL USING THESE STICKS BECAUSE THEY ARE TO LIGHT FOR ME. THEY ARE A GOOD QUALITY STICK IF YOU LIKE THE 5B NYLON TO BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE. I AM USED TO USING HEAVIER STICKS. THIS WAY I HAVE BETTER CONTROL. THE PROMARK STICKS HAVE NICE WEIGHT TO THEM.
I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT THESE STICKS ARE NOT HEAVIER FOR BEING A 5B NYLON STICK.
I NEVER KNEW THAT DIFFERENT BRANDS OF THE 5B NYLON WOULD BE DIFFERENT IN WEIGHT.

    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.

      Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

      I'm a semi-pro drummer who is retired from my "day job" and I play in small venues with low volume. These sticks are great for all the styles I play, standards, jazz, pop, light rock and classic soul. My only comment on these sticks (not a problem)is that they are a bit large for my venues -- not in size, but in volume. No matter how light I play, these sticks really broadcast! They do everything a jazz style, hickory stick should do as far as clarity and rebound are concerned. However, my small venues require the Jazz-E (wood-sound nylon tip) and the wood tip Jazz. I find that I am even using the Jeff Hamilton Signature (smaller and shorter) sticks in a lot of my songs. This is my limitation -- not the sticks. If you want a perfect wood tip rock-jazz hybrid at normal to high volumes, the 8A is your 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!

        regal tip sticks

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        i've tried every stick ever made. i've tried every size ever made. my personal favorite is the regal tip 5b nylon tip. loud or soft, fast or slow, it is my preference. the finish is perfect. when the hands get sweaty, grip actually increases, allowing a relaxed, comfortable grip, even when playing at skull splitting volumes. other sticks feel buzzy and uncomfortable. poorly balanced. not these. it's like hitting a line drive right at the center of percussion in baseball- it makes a loud bang, but you don't feel a thing. they are durable, as well. i do a ridiculous amount of rim shots, and these sticks hold up very well.
        well, whaddaya know, it's a stick!
        they've had issues with straightness and weight matching in the past, but they've gotten much better. in the early days of drumming (when i was a kid), i'd go down to my local drum shop and pull 50 or so sticks out of the bin, and roll them. that would narrow the field down to about 20 sticks, then i would tap them and select the highest pitched among them. that would yield me 1 or 2 pair. they are almost always straight and well matched now.
        price doesn't matter (within reason, of course) when the sticks are this good.

        regal tip jazz

        By jeffrey cort

        from u.s. as well as all over

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        the only product there is. (there are no other drum sticks) i dont know what you call what the other manufactures produce, door stoppers?
        regal tip jazz are the drum stick, that all aspire to, all other sticks pale in comparison. i have spent over 40 years as a professional musician and have compared all other brands of drum sticks with not on single pair paralel to joe calato's regal tip jazz. from wood selection with matched pairing and advance controlled drying, the balance, quality and consistency of this product has remained light years ahead of the competition. i not only recommend this product, i will only use joe calato regal tip jazz, for the remainder of my lifetime.
        if your trying to save money, this not the area to do so.

        jazz model is amazing

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        i have traditionally played with pro mark oak and hickory 5A's and have always been fond of the pro mark feel, but i recently picked up a pair of regal hickory jazz wood tips and i'll likely never go back. i used to thumb my nose at regal, and the sticks felt a bit slippery at first, but i got accustomed to it and began to feel the difference in rebound, control, and overall ease of play these sticks offer. they are incredible! the tips on the jazz model provide a clear, articulate sound and yet are very dynamically versatile. the taper also lets the stick rebound nicely without getting out of control and ruining tone quality on 16th's and such. i can't get over the ease of play of these sticks. great for jazz of course, but they are well-rounded enough to suit almost any style. may be especially useful in chop-intensive stuff like fusion or jam rock, a la the amazing rebound of the sticks.

        I just got 2 pairs of 5A's not too long ago. AMAZING! They are for sure the best drumsticks I have ever played. I used to use VIc Firths, but they broke really easily and I didn't like them. These are so much better. If you're looking for some new drumsticks, BUY THESE NOW!!

        Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

        I was a die hard Vic Firth player all throughout my college career in music and recording technology. Shortly after college I starting touring, experimenting w/ other brands and came across Regal Tip. I have now been an exclusive Regal Tip player for almost 20 years and feel this stick is a perfect match for the schooled, finesse drummer. I prefer 5A Nylon and miss the old green logo w/ green nylon tip and little stick man drummer on each pair.

          Comments about Regal Tip American Hickory Drumsticks:

          After playing all the high end/top brand drumsticks (Promark, Vic Firth, etc.) over the last 50+ years, it's a no-brainer for me that there is no other stick that plays like Regal Tip drumsticks. When I played Firth, the shoulder would wear quickly (like balsam wood) ending up looking like a beaver gnawed on them, and they always seemed light and flimsy for their size. Promarks would just split quickly right down the entire stick, and I don't play that hard. Promark sticks always felt top-heavy with no rebound throughout their entire line. My hands would become fatigued too quickly having to use more wrist in my technique. Regal Tips on the other hand always feel well balanced, translating to a relaxed performance, which eliminates the fatigue issue. They always feel like a dense, solid piece of wood, and the pair of 5As I've been using have lasted almost a year, with minimal wear at both the shoulder and tip, and still have that tacky finish on them, instilling more confidence when I play. I usually buy 10 or more pairs of sticks at a time, and I haven't even gotten to my second pair in a year's time of constant play. Cross sticking and rim shots always sound solid like no other, their rebound is unsurpassed, and I will never play any other brand of stick again. Ever.

                            I recently purchased two pair of the Regal Tip By calato 5B. When they arrived I noted one pair was significantly lighter than the other. I don't know about other drummers needs but I need a stick that is consistent in its weight and feel. It has every effect on how the drums sound and the volume that you need to get from the drum. I have been playing with Regal Tip sticks for 20 or more years and have noticed over the past 5 years this weight issue has become more consistent. At this point I am going to start looking at other brands.

                            I BOUGHT THESE REGAL STICKS TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT OTHER THAN WHAT I AM USED TO USING. I USE NOVA,GOOD WOOD,SOUND PERCUSSION AND PULSE STICKS. I DON'T MIND PAYING AND PLAYING WITH CHEAP STICKS. I PLANNED ON USING THESE FOR PRACTICES AND CONCERTS. I STARTED BUYING THE MORE TRADITIONAL BRANDS OF STICKS LIKE REGAL, PROMARK, ETC.
                            I LIKE THE HEAVY WEIGHT ON THE CHEAPER 5B NYLON STICKS COMPARED TO THE REGAL STICKS. THESE STICKS HAVE A GOOD GRIP ON THEM FOR ME, AND THEY ARE EASY TO USE, BUT I DON'T HAVE VERY GOOD CONTROL USING THESE STICKS BECAUSE THEY ARE TO LIGHT FOR ME. THEY ARE A GOOD QUALITY STICK IF YOU LIKE THE 5B NYLON TO BE ON THE LIGHT SIDE. I AM USED TO USING HEAVIER STICKS. THIS WAY I HAVE BETTER CONTROL. THE PROMARK STICKS HAVE NICE WEIGHT TO THEM.
                            I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT THESE STICKS ARE NOT HEAVIER FOR BEING A 5B NYLON STICK.
                            I NEVER KNEW THAT DIFFERENT BRANDS OF THE 5B NYLON WOULD BE DIFFERENT IN WEIGHT.
