TL;DR: If you are a loud drummer with only one type of sticks in your bag, walk on; you will hate silent sticks. If you already use brushes, rods, light wood sticks etc, you will think this is the best thing since sliced bread and love them. For…
You need to dial down drum volume without breaking the bank? Welcome to your solution: Adoro Silent Sticks let you play drums, cymbals and e-drum pads 80% less loud, while you can still sound great! (klick here for tips on how to improve your drum sound when playing quiet!)
With air-filled polycarbonate shafts, anti-slip rubber X- grips and Dual-Twist Reflex TipsTM, Silent Sticks cut drum and cymbal volume up to 80%. Ideal for worship, jazz and acoustic band settings, electronic drums, pad practice, band rehearsals, home practice, recording…. Wherever volume is a concern, play Silent Sticks and Silent Beater!
Meet the perfect companion to our Silent Sticks:
The Silent Beater.
This bassdrum beater is quieter than any other beater on the market. The special materials used provide low mass, which results in less force beeing transferred to your drum. This means that you don’t have to adapt any other playing style, just mount the Stilent Beater and your bassdrum will have a significantly lower volume instantly. We are also shipping our beater with an additional special foam pad, in case you want even more volume reduction and a softer sound of your drum. Our Silent Beater is compatible with every standard bassdrum pedal.
Especially great for edrums and percussive instruments, these beaters keeps the instruments from breaking.

Matt Drummer Just bought and used them today. Excellent product. If you are just an uncontrolled basher, then you will not be happy, but if you play with some finesse then I highly recommend them.

Jason Emery I’d say try em before knocking them. They have a unique feel and the weight of the stick really can really up your speed. I’ve been using them for a couple months. Certainly not right for every application but if yu try em I think you’ll find a place in your bag to keep a pair.

Glenn Etter Used mine for the first time last night and was very impressed, as was the rest of the band! Wondering how long they will last and how the plastic shaft will handle cymbal rash, but so far so good…
* * *
Paul Spears Just got a set and have to say after 50 years of drumming and spending a small fortune on hot rod sticks to be able to play quietly with attack and energy these silent sticks are great with a fantastic cymbal response
If you need to play at low volume you need these as an alternative in your stick bag

Rick Vandeven I tried Silent Sticks out this weekend with my band. I usually play my e-drums when we rehearse, but we have started booking gigs again, and have a show at a small bar and grill in 3 weeks. It’s too small IMO for my acoustic drums, but I hate dragging my electrics to a gig. Anyhow, ordered Silent Sticks, set my Luddies up, and we had a grand rehearsal in my garage! I am ordering another pair today!

Corbin Gurley Received mine in a timely manner even with the postal service being so backed up with volume. Love the sticks so far, would love for them to have a little more rebound, but with the way they’re designed I don’t see that being very alterable. Great product! May have to check out the silent beater soon

Allan Langvee Awesome product!!! Added bonus… broke my wrist (right cymbal hand) and can continue to practice with a cast! Vibration level is also less with these sticks!!! Totally recommend them!
* * *
John Arnett The silent sticks are great! Durable, grip nicely, and much more responsive on the snare and toms than dowel sticks, which I’ve used for years. Much brighter sound on the cymbals as well! A good investment!
* * *
Brad Hepfer I’ve had the sticks for several months now and really like them. I use to only play when it rained and the wife ( a former drummer and lead singer in an all girl band in the sixties) wasn’t home. No longer an issue with these sticks.

wait, there are more reviews!

Sean Ibanez I actually really like these. Gave em a shot when they came up in my feed. Figured a few bucks wasn’t a big deal if I didn’t like them. They’re a little more flexible than i was expecting, but it’s easy to adjust to. They’re slim and light, i think a bit thinner than my 7a sticks. It lets me practice rudiments after my 5y/o goes to bed. It’s going to make a big difference for me.

Chris Sheppard I LOVE THE SILENT STICKS!! Just played my first full gig with them at a local Craft Brewery and we had a blast AND I played fully “free”! Decided to buy another pair as a back up.
* * *
Rafael Franco This silent beater is the best out there. It ACTUALLY reduces the noise significantly, opposed to the Kat and others which barely do anything
* * *
Tony Kay I have a pair and they really do cut the volume. They are very light in weight compared to regular sticks. They have a new version for e-drums which are a little more like a regular stick in weight. I use them for practice and when playing gigs in smaller venues.

Justin Bowe I’ve tried many implements to play quieter but with good tone; I don’t like rods, I like some things about rutes, and I liked the ProMark broomsticks but these SilentSticks are the best option I’ve tried in years. They feel great, play great, and work great for playing in a small church worship area. I did break the tip off one, but it happens to real sticks too so it’s fine. They deliver a tiny bit more attack than tone, but I can live with it. Highly recommend!

Scott Keiser I’m a worship pastor, and our Adoro worship drums and silent sticks arrived here in the U.S. 3 days after ordering, even shipping from Germany! 3 days!! That’s crazy.
Our sanctuary has ridiculous acoustics. It’s like playing in a cave. If you clap, it lingers for 4 seconds. Enter Adoro drums and sticks. We got it ready and mic’d up with no cage a couple Sundays ago, and I was nervous. The older members of the congregation would’ve bombarded me with emails the next day if it was too much (I know what you’re thinking, but that’s another convo for another day). But that Sunday went great! The drums blended well and were easy to regulate from the booth. I received several compliments on them even. They do what they are designed to do. Even in a “cave” sanctuary. Very impressed with this customer-minded company and the CEO.

Nechemia Soibelman I never leave feed back but I got these sticks and let me tell u life changing.
* * *
Bob Forman These are way quieter than wood sticks ,but sharper and louder than brushes! The perfect medium,and won’t annoy other musicians .lol. Not sure how durable they will hold up,just started playing ,time will tell !!
* * *
Richard A. Langley I use the silent sticks to rehearse in our little studio. I love them. If the rest of the band wants to hear what they really sound like with out ear monitors they are a miracle!
* * *
Leeroy Heckart My whole church basically made a comment the Sunday I brought them to church. That’s how much of a difference these sticks make. I’m pulling the trigger on the worship series.
* * *
Ken Osterhoudt I don’t get the complaining. They serve a purpose. If I wanna play at 11pm my neighbors hear nothing with these. The family doesn’t complain when they are trying to watch tv. If I just wanna mess around, not hearing protection these are fine. Sure I prefer real sticks but my practice time can now double with these. They serve a purpose. Took just a day to get used to them. Give them a chance. I ordered them, they were here in less than a week.

David Fuchser Just got a pair of the blue edrum version for my Roland kit, since I live in an apartment. It’s not silent of course, but it takes a considerable edge away compared to my regular sticks. Also have tennis ball risers underneath my bass and pedals (the main offenders!) Would recommend these sticks to any edrum player!

What the pros say…
“I got my silent sticks a while ago and have used them at several rehearsals since. We rehearse in a small, low-ceiling basement and my bandmates have been constantly on me to play quieter at these practice sessions even to the point of suggesting putting towels all over the kit which I won’t do. That really screws up the sound and bounce of the drum so I (we) were hoping that the Silent Sticks would help solve the problem. They really, really did and are great at taking the volume way down while allowing me to play hard with the same force as I would in a live performance where more volume is okay. A great product!”
Charles Fisher, USA
“I just love the feel and weight of these Silent Sticks! To me they are somewhere in between playing a brush and a conventional stick. I am now using them with my students and at a Primary School where I teach. The kids love them too. Really easy on the ears in the classroom too. Highly recommended!”
Tony McNally (Advanced Skills Teacher for Music, UK)
“Shipping was fast, and after first sceptism my excitement grew. These sticks really deliver what they promise! I can play so quiet, I can keep talking during my drum clinics and explain what I am doing without a mike. Also, they sound great, like sticks, just less loud. I love them!”
Love them! These sticks have a similar feel to normal sticks, but with a substantial decrease in volume. The closest alternative to these are rods, but my main gripe with rods is that you can’t even get air through the drum when playing toms. With these silent sticks, however, you get a much fuller feel on the toms and you can also get a solid rim shot on the snare without hurting everyone’s ears.They are much more durable than rods as well. I am very happy with them and I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs to reduce the volume of their playing for difficult acoustic environments. These will put the fun back into playing quiet!
