Big Apple Bop sticks are easily identified by their extra-long taper and oversized acorn wood tip. This is the largest tip in our catalog. When you combine it with the thinner overall body of the stick, you get plenty of definition with a big sound and quick bounce. Great for up-tempo ride patterns where you need to cut with agility and full tonal response.
Big Apple Swing sticks are the reverse of our Bop models to draw out a specific tone and feel on cymbals. They feature an undersized acorn wood tip that yields a controlled articulation for maximum clarity while allowing cymbals to breathe without overdriving. Great for light sounds. Combined with a medium-long taper, our Big Apple Swing sticks are perfect if you want to play with a full stick motion in quieter settings without your cymbals washing out.
