-- GENERAL --
All drumsticks and guitar picks eventually wear out. It's just in their nature.
Subscription plans are the best way to get new sticks and picks delivered right to your door every month. There are a variety of plans available, so you select the plan that is perfect for you and MRB will do the rest. You can cancel or skip a month any time.
All existing subscription plans are automatically re-billed on the 15th of each month. New orders received before the 5th of the month are billed immediately.
Orders placed on or after the 5th, will skip that months renewal, and be billed on the 15th of the next month, to avoid being double billed in the same month.
Changes made to your plan must be made by the end of the day on the 14th of each month in order to be recognized for that months shipment.
Existing plans will be shipped by the 19th of each month, or the next business day. New orders placed on or after the 5th, will ship immediately, but skip that months renewal, and ship 19th of the next month, to avoid receiving 2 shipments in the same month. Changes made to your plan must be made by end of the day on the 14th of each month in order to be recognized for that months shipment.
Magic Room Brand is custom-made gear, so you're getting premium accessories that are designed, crafted, and tested with the same care you put in your music.

-- OUR GEAR --
Hmmm...it depends. How often you play, your style, etc., are all factors. That said, MRB gear is meant to sound better while lasting longer.
If you're a casual basement drummer, a pair oughta last 4-6 weeks, if not longer (again, based on frequency, style, and technique). If you're gigging/touring with a band, then you'll go through them faster as you're playing more often. It's our experience that a new fresh set of sticks is a good idea if you have a studio session or show coming up, just to ensure response, balance, and tone. Even if they're not "broken," all sticks wear out and lose some balance and response.
For picks, again, it's a good idea to have a fresh set for an upcoming show or studio session. Five picks every 4-8 weeks should do you good, but let's be honest, it depends on how often you lose them.
The Eco-Hybrid Magic Room Brand guitar picks are made of a starch-based (corn) bioplastic. The bioplastic is called PLA, which is more eco-friendly than typical petroleum-based plastic. There is A LOT of debate about how biodegradable and eco-friendly bioplastics are, but it really all comes down to how you're using the word "biodegradable." MRB gear is biodegradable in that our gear will break down completely - at varying speeds depending on the environement and conditions - to ensure that over time, nothing will remain.
The first-gernation "Signature" Magic Room Brand guitar picks are made of bamboo cellulose (from inside the bamboo stalk), other natural plant fibers, and water. That's it. Seriously. Compressed at high temperatures to ensure strength and playability.
MRB also offers guitar picks in different sizes (standard, standard with thumb grip, standard with thumb grip & finger notch, jazz, and "fatty" for bass) that are made of the outer stalk of bamboo grass. Dried to ensure strength and durability. All-natural surface improves grip with use.
Dreams. They're made of dreams.
For real though, MRB drumsticks are made of 100% bamboo grass, resulting in sticks that are lighter than maple, more versatile than hickory, and stronger than oak. We don't use any "hardening" or protective chemical lacquers because bamboo doesn't need it. This results in a grip that gets better with use, and ensures optimal biodegradability when it's all said and done.
All MRB gear is designed, developed, and reviewed right here in Saint Louis, Missouri USA.
MRB partners with expert bamboo craftsmen in the Jiangsu region of China - home to the best bamboo in the world - to ensure every item is up to snuff for tone, feel, and strength.
Where do we start? Bamboo is kind of badass. Let's start there.
- Bamboo is a grass - not a wood - so NO deforestation.
- Bamboo emits 30-40% more oxygen than trees do...so that's pretty cool. Take a breath. You're welcome.
- When most trees take 60-70 years to mature enough for production, bamboo takes 6-7 years. It grows SUPER fast (several feet in
a few days) and requires very little water and no pesticides to grow.
- Bamboo actually rejuvenates land so the more you use, the more it grows, and the more it nurtures the soil.
- It's naturally moisture-wicking, so our gear gets better with use.
- It's more biodegradable than wood (we don't use complex lacquers), and of course more biodegradable than plastic because duh.
Yes. There are a lot of brands out there saying that they are eco-friendly. Some are. Some aren't. Typically, it's easy to compromise the quality of your product just to make it eco-friendly. MRB has no interest in compromising quality.
The debate of eco-friendly plastics rages on. Lately, the main issue is how someone defines "biodegradable." Studies have started to differentiate between "biodegeadable plastic" and "bioplastic" because the former is just regular petroleum-based (and not eco-friendly) plastic with an added chemical that allows the product to break apart (not go away, just break into smaller pieces).
But "bioplastic" material is different in that it is a PLA or plant-based plastic that holds similar traits as plastic, but doesn't need any added compounds to make it biodegrade. THIS is what Magic Room Brand uses.
So, even if you're one of those people that don't care about the Earth (you monster!), MRB picks and sticks sound better and last longer.
