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!” * * *

“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!”* * *

“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!
