Promark Expands Shira Kashi Oak Drumstick Line
Promark Drumsticks has expanded its Shira Kashi Oak drumstick line to include the Select Balance acorn tip models. Though the classic models have dominated this category for many years, Promark says: ‘ Here was an overwhelming number of requests to add Select Balance models to the line, and now, we are happy to announce that they will be available to ship in January 2019’.
The maker adds: ‘Since the company’s founding in 1957, Promark Shira Kashi drumsticks have always been considered the premium oak offering. As a brand, Promark gained notoriety for being the first American stick manufacturer to successfully market sustainable oak. Shira Kashi Oak drumsticks are denser than the hickory that is traditionally used, so they offer more power, strength, and durability.
‘The Select Balance line of drumsticks was designed to give players the opportunity to explore different balance options on their preferred model to fit different playing styles and techniques. Forward models feature a short, 2 ¼” taper, which shifts the weight and momentum of the drumstick towards the front for improved power and speed. Rebound models feature a longer, 3″ taper, giving the stick great bounce for optimized finesse and agility’.
The new Shira Kashi Oak Select Balance sticks will be available in 5A, 5B, and 7A in both Forward and Rebound models. They will retail for £17.49 and began shipping on 2nd January 2019.
