EMBRACING RUDIMENTAL DRUMMING
Sound quality is one of the most important values for every drumline. It's realized by a well tuned drum, an excellent and equal technique of all the drummers in the line, but also the drumsticks play a big part here.
The RD drumsticks are crafted with artisanal attention to detail and every pair is matched based on weight, density and pitch.
Rudimental drumming is a broad term, it encompasses many different styles and traditions. Finding the right stick for your style and needs can be difficult sometimes. Therefore, we designed the different sticks in a way that they match a particular style. We made it easy for you to choose.
HIGH QUALITY = SUSTAINABILITY
Nobody wants splintered drumsticks after just a few rimshots. The RD drumsticks are crafted with the highest quality American hickory wood. High quality drumsticks also means very sustainable drumsticks which last for a long time. That's not only better for your wallet, but also for our wonderful planet. It's a win-win.
OUR SIGNATURE STICKS
The Van Haaren signature sticks match the traditional styles of drumming and the Cornelissen signature sticks fit more modern styles of rudimental drumming. Choose the pair that meets your needs.
"I really love a very articulate sound, but I don't want to give up on a full rim shot sound. I designed a drumstick type that satisfies both demands and feels great in your hands at the same time. Therefore, this stick perfectly matches modern styles of rudimental drumming. "
"The power flowing through your drum and your sticks with traditional rudimental drumming is something I can't get enough of. I designed a drumstick type that boosts that feeling of power and generates a warm and full sound. It's the perfect fit for traditional styles."
RENE VAN HAAREN
The RD Drumsticks have been developed in collaboration with Pellwood drumsticks. All the sticks are crafted in their factory by their employees. Many thanks to Dennis Smits for bringing this cooperation to fruition. We also sell other drumstick types crafted in collaboration with Pellwood.
