Introducing Malletech Concert Drum Sticks

PhD Series

(Premium high-Density)

Not every Malletech stick designer has a PhD from a university, but they all have a PhD’s worth of experience in symphonic and chamber music.  All the models are manufactured with a new computer-based manufacturing process that allows Malletech to control dimensions and contours down to 1/1000 of an inch- an unprecedented level of detail, control and consistency.  While other brands of sticks are cut to shape in a matter of 10 to 15 seconds with a back-knife or grinding stones, the Malletech PhD Series are being “slow cooked” in a process that takes up to 20 times longer.  Why are we taking all that time and care?   Our artists demand a level of quality, consistency and precision that just can’t be achieved with traditional manufacturing methods.  A college-trained percussionist weighs, pitch, and “character” matches each pair - something a computer can’t do.  You will see, feel and hear the difference.  If you are really serious about snare drum, you will reach for Malletech PhD Series sticks every time you practice or perform.
