Volume a problem? Not now!

Your weapon of choice for most situations: a nice thick and firm X-Grip in the size of a 5A stick gives you enough control, the Dual-Twist-Reflex-Tip from hard nylon gives you a nice attack on both cymbals and toms, so close to the sound of regular sticks, only the volume difference will give it away. Can be used on both acoustic and e-drums.

Here an extended review by drumheads!:

How quiet can you play?

The goal of drum manufacturer Adoro Drums was and is to build high end drum set that work well in an all acoustic setting, sounding full and warm even when played low volume. This does not end with shells and drum heads, now they focus on yet another factor: the drum sticks.

As much as drummers love to bash – there just happen to be situations, where the drums cannot be quiet enough: singer-songwriter at a living room concert, background music in a bar, supporting a choir in a church, just to mention a few.

It might not be suitable for everybody to get a dedicated drum and cymbal set for such situations, so the drum sticks – of course together with adjusting your  velocity when playing – is the most common starting point. As addition to lighter sticks, rods, brushes, Adoro now offerts the Silent Sticks.

Made of transparent polycarbonate, anti-slip rubber X- grips and our Dual-Twist Reflex Tips®, Silent Sticks are ideal for lower-volume playing.

The Silent Stick is very flexible, in combination with the reflex tip, absorbs a majority of the energy instead of passing it on to the drum head. You can really play extremely low volume with these sticks, with a bit thinner sound than you get from a wood stick, which can be seen as advantage regarding reduced and perceived volume.

The cymbals keep their brilliance, and the stick shoulder produces a quiet but distinct ride bell sond. When playing with more velocity – the Silent Sticks are capeable to play rimshots with – they still are considerably less loud than their wooden siblings. It takes some time to get used to the 12mm thin sticks. But the only 25gram and 42cm are so well ballanced, they still rather feel like a drum stick thans a chopstick in your hands.

How you finally manage to adjust your volume to every situation is your own job. With the Silent Stick Adoro certanly adds a great option you should consider trying out!

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.
