The "Throwdowner" Stick!

The most ergonomic marching percussion stick in the world!  Newly designed with a contour that fits perfectly in your hand whether you play matched grip or traditional grip. This stick has an oval bead with a long taper on the shoulder and it is 17" long with two strips of lead tape on the back end to make the stick feel lighter than it actually is.  The oval bead gives you a big sound, the weight on the back gives you speed and endurance and the contour gives you maximum comfort... All things I love!

Rudimental Clave

I originally wrote this solo in 1995 but recently had some interest from some students so I rearranged, composed new material, wrote a Latin Percussion Quartet accompaniment and made a play along track for when you don't have a quartet to accompany you. It's a lot of fun and quite challenging. A great senior recital piece that the crowd will enjoy.
