An all-time favorite, great for all styles. Heavier than its Hickory counterpart. Length: 16", Diameter: 0.551". Pro-Mark was the first drum stick company to introduce oak drum sticks to drummers in the United States, and remains the only drum stick maker to offer Shira Kashi oak drum sticks continuously since 1957. No other oak drum stick can match the sound quality and superior craftsmanship of the Pro-Mark original.
Japanese white oak offers unsurpassed strength and durability. Extremely dense, it resists chipping and "wearing soft" when compared to other types of wood.
