Magic Room Brand’s signature 5B bamboo drumsticks have been a favorite since the beginning. These have a way of becoming a physical extension of your playing - with a balance and fiber consistency that will finally let your crash cymbals sing the way they’re supposed to - no more of those washy overtones.
Built for the studio. Perfect for the stage.
It started with a search for a drumstick that had a more secure grip. When you play for three hours, you work up a sweat, and where wooden sticks get slippery, bamboo sticks almost feel like they adhere. Think of what wet grass does, because bamboo is grass. The sticks are lighter and also last longer than wooden sticks. But getting hold of the sticks you want can be problematic if you don't order them from the right place. The only company whose products AND service AND prices I can endorse is Magic Room Brand. Good buisness model and they take care of their customers rather than take their money and run. Trust me here because this isn't the first review I've ever written of a bamboo stick vendor. If you're shopping around you'll find another. Just stop here and get them from MRB. I've been using the 5Bs for a while, but I wanted to wait until I'd also gigged with their bamboo guitar pick. That happened this past weekend, and the picks also have my seal of approval. This is where to get your sticks and picks.
I love the sticks. They feel great, the play great, the tone they produce is awesome! You have truly created masterpieces! I love your super awesome customer service, and I'm picky when it comes to customer service. I don't give those compliments out lightly.
They took a beating. They are bright and clear sounding upon impact They provided me more clarity on the drums, more definition in the small ghost notes and more vibrancy and bounce on the double strokes.
This has quickly become one of my favorite sticks of all-time. For reference, I've been using the Stephen Perkins signature stick from Promark for years. It took me a long time to find a stick that just felt perfect in my hands and when I finally found them, I just kept buying them over and over again. That lasted right up until I found Magic Room. I discovered Magic Room while searching for sticks that were sustainable and eco-friendly. Whenever I break a drumstick, which is often, I always feel a pang of guilt for all the trees I've killed over the years. This stick, made from bamboo, is just as strong if not stronger and takes me just as long if not longer to break as any wooden stick I've used. They are also incredibly light, which allows me to execute fills more quickly and efficiently than I would normally be able to with a conventional stick. The light weight also reduces fatigue, which comes in handy when plowing through a marathon jam/practice sesh or getting through a long set list. The customer service is the best I've ever encountered. After ordering two pairs, I signed up for a monthly subscription. The only thing better than these sticks is the company that makes them.
I bought several pairs of 7A and 5B sticks for me and my son. We love how light and nimble they are, and the sound is solid. We'll be repeat customers, for sure.
