Headhunters Tublitz sticks are based on a 5B hickory stick. A 2in long 3/8in diameter polycarbonate tube is pressure fitted over the tip area of the 5B and that tube will not come off! Tubing is placed over the transition area that produces a slick looking drumstick.
The tube has a natural flex and forces the drum stick to bounce much quicker than a normal stick. The tube produces a natural volume level which is less than that of a drumstick and has a nice dark cymbal tone. The bounce is much faster than a comparable drum stick and there is very little resistance or friction so it is very easy to execute buzz rolls and maintain a very soft a low volume dynamic.
Ideal for keeping the volume of your playing down without having to resort to using thick rods.
