The Crossovers II Bamboo Light combine the concept of bundled rods with that of a regular maple drum stick. After lathing the unique shaped shaft of the Crossover II, Headhunters drill a center hole down to a bulb area then insert and secure bundle of light weight bamboo strands. The bamboo strands are very thin, allowing for many to be inserted into the playing end. They provide a soft natural sound. Because they leave the outer skin intact on these thin bamboo strands, there are very strong and resilient. They then finish the stick with Headhunters user friendly ‘Grip Control’ which features their double textured ‘X’ pattern feel. The overall playing benefits, of the solid wood zone for bell and cymbal definition, cross sticking and rim shot friendly are all part characteristic inherent in all the Crossovers unique Hybrid Bundle design.
Rods are normally used when sticks are too loud, yet brushes won’t cut through. With the Crossovers you have the option of playing at both stick and rod level. The stick shaft retains the playing feel of a traditional stick, making your change to Crossovers seamless.
