The New DS1 Snare Stick was designed by Doug Stronach. The manufacturing process responds to the needs of drummers who prefer to play sticks within a certain weight range. Sticks that fall outside the boundaries of acceptable weights for snare drummers, move into production for the RJ1 Bass Stick and DS1 Rhythm Tenor Mallet where heavier and lower pitched sticks are more desirable.
The DS1 stick is finished in a clear, non-slip water-based varnish. The shaft is tapered only towards the last half of the stick and the tip is a round ball shape.
