Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick- LED drumsticks


We switched ordinary drumsticks for these LED ones from Germany to see if the average musicians would notice. This is what they reported:

First,they remarked on the color. "Very cool!" "And they have a good grip, and weight." (Apparently, they are a standard size 5A, for you drummers out there.)

While they found them a little bottom-weighted, they still found them comfortable but because of the tips, they felt like there was a slight delay so they wouldn't be good for "heavy hitting." One drummer, Buster, felt the tips might fall off, and that affected his rhythm.

For a real test, we switched them at a block party and the crowd loved the flashing lights, though the drummer had to remember not to toss them out to the crowd after the encore.

Available from Lights and Knives for $32. Extra points if you remember who sang "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick".
